Woodland Kingdom was once a beautiful place where the inhabitants who lived there, the Little Wolves and the Wolf People, lived in peace, harmony, and order. However, the leader of the Dark Mountain Kingdom, Lord Kurokawa, and his army nearly defeated King Hikaru and his army. Then Kurokawa destroyed the Wolf Moon Jewel, causing the pieces to scatter; Hikaru used his maximum power to defeat and drive Kurokawa and his army away, but the Woodland Kingdom was in ruins as a result of the battle, and Hikaru transformed into a Little Wolf due to using his maximum power and the jewel being broken (Slight spoiler: he stays in this form until the Cures find the missing pieces of the Wolf Moon Jewel). So, he called for three Little Wolves who were wearing Cure Amulets and told them to find three special girls destined to be the Wolf Precure. The Little Wolves then went down to Earth, or Terra Country, as the Woodlanders called it to find the Pretty Cure and stop the Dark Mountain Kingdom from stealing Earth's moon.
On Earth, in Tsukinokiseki Town, there is a girl named Kibouno Etsuko who is tomboyish, basically born to lead, and brings joy to the people around her. One day, she saved a Little Wolf from being bullied by a group of little kids; then the small creature named Kouki told Etsuko that she is a Pretty Cure and gave her the Cure Amulet that he was wearing. After transforming into a Pretty Cure, Etsuko has to find two other girls, Kiseki Hinata and Kiyoshi Haruna, to be her partners in order to defeat the Dark Mountain Kingdom and find the missing pieces of the sacred Wolf Moon Jewel so the Woodland Kingdom can return to how it once was. Will the Wolf Precure be able to find the missing pieces of the jewel, protect the Earth's moon, and save the Woodland Kingdom?
Dark Mountain Kingdom's Plan and Backstory
The Dark Mountain Kingdom did not always have that name; it was originally known as Moon Mountain Kingdom. The Moon Mountain Kingdom and the Woodland Kingdom were friendly towards each other. The two kingdoms loved the moon, especially Moon Mountain since the kingdom was named after it. One night on a full moon, the denizens of Moon Mountain began to act strangely and then turned into werewolf-like creatures. This occurred due to a gene they had that caused the transformation which the Moon Mountain denizens called "a curse". The transformed people caused a rampage in the Woodland Kingdom and King Daiki, the ruler at the time, stopped the werewolf-like creatures and cured them, turning the Moon Mountain denizens back to normal. Daiki decided that clouds should be casted over the sky in Moon Mountain Kingdom to cover the moon in order to prevent the same thing happening again. The ruler of the Moon Mountain Kingdom at the time, Lord Tsukikage, was angry at this and demanded that the moon must be uncovered. Daiki felt sorry for Tsukikage, but still decided that the moon must be covered. He asked his son Hikaru, who was prince at the time, to cover Moon Mountain Kingdom's sky with clouds. Prince Hikaru did so, but with a sad and heavy heart. When he told his father that he did the task, Tsukikage flew into a rage and attempted to kill the prince. Then Daiki stepped in to protect his son and accidently killed Lord Tsukikage in the process. Tsukikage's son, Kurokawa, was enraged by this and swore revenge on the entire Woodland Kingdom. Then the now Lord Kurokawa renamed Moon Mountain Kingdom to Dark Mountain Kingdom because of the darkness in the denizens' hearts and the "loss" of their beloved moon. Kurokawa snuck into the Woodland Kingdom and disguised himself as a servant. He then casted a spell that would kill Daiki in his sleep. The spell worked and King Daiki died in his sleep. The now King Hikaru was angered by this and declared war on Dark Mountain Kingdom. After the war, the Dark Mountain Kingdom decided to steal the Earth's moon to "replace" their "lost" moon and invaded Earth AKA Terra Country.

King Hikaru is the ruler of Woodland Kingdom and husband of Queen Hikari. He is benevolent, caring, kind, and fair; these qualities make him beloved among his subjects, and he is shown to be very protective of them and his kingdom. Hikaru is shown to be willing to do anything to save the Woodland Kingdom: for example, he used up his maximum power to end the battle between the two kingdoms even though the Wolf Moon Jewel was shattered by Lord Kurokawa and it would transform him into a Little Wolf, and he stays in this form, until the pieces of the jewel would be put together again. He sent Kouki, Emi, and Kaede to Earth (Terra Country) to find the legendary Pretty Cure to put the jewel back together and save the Woodland Kingdom. A running gag is that the Cures call him "Wolf Prince" and he responds with, "I am NOT a prince~karu! I am a king ~karu!" He appears in episode 11 to tell the Cures why were they chosen and what their mission is.
