Linh Cinder

Notes on file

  • Rightful heir to the throne of Luna
  • Can’t cry (no tear ducts) or blush due to her cyborg modifications
  • Closest with her stepsister Peony
"Her fears started to melt away. She didn’t know if her video had persuaded every civilian to join her cause, and maybe not even most of them.

But the sight before her was proof that her revolution had begun."


Cinder is the central heroine of the Lunar Chronicles. She is 36.28 percent cyborg, with a prosthetic hand and leg as well as other internal wires and systems. She works as a mechanic in the marketplace of New Beijing. She is the leader of her small crew of revolutionaries, but often second-guesses her skills and is self-conscious about her cyborg attributes. Queen Levana wants her dead.
