Portrayed By Emily Browning

Petals Open to The Moon or "Pet" is a Soul that emigrated from Flower Planet to Earth and was subsequently disinserted by Doc so Wanderer could have a body without a human consciousness. She has been cast in the movie, by Emily Browning.


Prior to The Host

Petals Open to the Moon spent a term (or more) with the Flowers where she apparently lived a normal life in a Moon Flower (a variant of the Flowers) body. She is known to have made friends with "Ruffles... And More Ruffles".

At some point she emigrated to Earth and acquired a young body; apparently filling the consciousness "vacancy" before the body could acquire it's own human consciousness. The body eventually developed into a what is described as "an exact translation from Flower to human" of the Night Flower body's appearance.

Petals Open to the Moon was raised by her "Mother" Cloud Spinner.

The Host

Petals Open to the Moon (her host seventeen years of age) was \walking along when she was approached by a girl she had never seen before. They had a friendly conversation. All seemed fine, until a man and boy emerged from an alley, grabbed her, and knocked her out with a sedative.
