Sol at the gate of an orphanage

She was loved and adored by everyone. The little girl became an orphan at a young age when her aunt accidentally started a fire in the mansion, leaving Sharon and Sol as the sole survivors. The young Sol survived thanks to Roberto Muñoz, one of the household's staff members who saved her. In the process of getting out of the quickly burning house, Sol lost one half of her locket, which Roberto later kept. Roberto brought the young girl to Mexico City where she was adopted by Miguel and Mónica, who gave her the new name Luna, after the locket she wore around her neck.

Due to her young age when being adopted, she only has very few and vague memories of her life as Sol, and considers Miguel and Mónica as her real parents, since they are the ones who raised her. One of the earliest recollections she has is watching her mother Lili drawing a picture with the phrase "There is always a light to guide you. The sun will always rise again."

Season 1Edit

Part 1Edit

Luna is a teenage girl who works at Foodger Wheels with her best friend Simón Álvarez. In her free time, she loves to speed skate around Cancún, which makes her feel free and uninhibited.

En route to deliver food to Ámbar, Luna runs into Matteo on the streets, and they begin to flirt. He aptly begins to call her Chica Delivery. After she continues on, she meets Ámbar and spills food over her swimming attire. Ámbar immediately takes a disliking to Luna, and trips her, making Luna fall into the pool. Matteo jumps in and saves her from drowning, making Ámbar jealous and solidifying her hate towards Luna. On the same day, Sharon makes an undeniable job offer to Luna's parents, forcing the Valentes to relocate to Buenos Aires, Argentina.
