Note: Though the page mostly covers the fictional location Metazone, it will cover areas outside of it as well.

The Moonlake Comics series Wander of Wonder is mostly set in the fictional continent Metazone (a play on the word "Metazoa") which is heavily inspired by Medieval England but populated by anthropomorphic animals in place of people.

Locations

Metazone

Silver Gorilla Kingdom

The Silver Gorilla Kingdom is the kingdom of King Desmond, the silverback gorilla king, and his Royal Family. It is the largest out of all the kingdoms and the most visited in the series. According to the book The World of Wander, Desmond's kingdom is extremely old and has had so many kings that a lot of them have been forgotten to history. It is the second oldest kingdom in Metazone and has gone through a few name changes. Originally, it was entitled the "Bronze Panther Kingdom", then the "White Hawk Kingdom", due to it previously being ruled by a lineage of panthers and hawks, respectivley.

In the middle of the kingdom is Desmond's castle, which was specifically put there by the original owner so that he could be "close to all the people at the same time". The villages that are a part of the Silver Gorilla Kingdom include:

Religions & Gods

Like many real world locations, Metazone believes in several gods and goddesses. The gods worshipped and what they represent are as follows:

  • The Holy Mother: The most widely worshipped and honored god out of them all. She is supposedly the mother of all the other gods and is thus indirectly responsible for the aspects of the universe. According to myths, she holds the mortal universe in one hand and the afterlife in the other. A common expression for characters to say is "by the Holy Mother", which is the equivalent of exclaiming "oh my god".
  • Valentine: The god of love and childbirth. According to legend, when the first baby was born he helped deliver it. He is one of the more popular gods in Metazone and, in the Wander of Wonder universe, is the person who "Valentin's Day" is named after. Couples often go to his churches and temples to pray for him to bless their love. Rumor has it, if it rains the next day after you pray to him, it means that your love isn't true.
  • Eon: The god of knowledge and wisdom. He has very few followers but most scholars, philosophers, and scientists at the very least have a bust of him. He is supposedly the person who gifted knowledge to the first people.
  • The Brothers Grim: The three gods of death, each representing a different aspect of death.
    • Grim, The Trickster: Death as an enemy. He is the version of death that you are able to challenge to regain your mortal soul or will trick immortals into finally dying.
    • Grim, The Inevitable: Death as a force of nature. He cannot be reasoned with and will come no matter what.
    • Grim, The Friend: Death as an old friend. He will help you come to terms with your death and convince you to come with him into the afterlife.
