"Pale Moon" (ペイルムーン Peiru Mūn) is a clan from the Dark Zonenation. The clan is themed around a magical circus troupe that, behind the scenes, specializes in assassination.
Pale Moon specializes in Superior Calling rear guards from the Soul, often during the Battle Phase to do more attacks. Some of their rear guards can send themselves to the Soul after attacking to call a card with a different Grade from the Soul to replace them.
Pale Moon has the AccelImaginary Gift, which rear guards that were called from the Soul during the Battle Phase take advantage of.
The Pale Moon Circus is based around real world circuses and theatrical productions. Many units take after performing roles, such as animal tamers, jugglers, sentient props, and even beasts themselves. Many units have European names, especially from languages of Anglo-Saxon and Slavic origin. The Circus itself is a front, as many units are also well-versed assassins. Their props during the show, and even their beasts, are also used for assassinations, which is why their props seem comically dangerous, and the beasts they train can range from normal animals such as tigers and bears, to mythical beasts such as chimeras and dragons.
As in real world performances, there are different groups that specialize in different acts. The Beast Tamers, as the name implies, are renowned for their prowess in taming beasts, both normal and mythical, and wear costumes inspired by colors and gemstones.
The Silver Thorns, led by Luquier, are the Circus' most famous troupe, and wear silver jewelry or wield silver weaponry decorated with thorns. Their act itself is special, as they are masters of many different performance crafts.
The Nightmare Dolls are giant, automated puppets infused with the souls of the Circus' assassination targets. They act as props or as part of the acts of others, and are known to give many an audience member horrible nightmares.
