Rumored to be a prince that escaped during the demonic purge of New Byzantion, Lucas became known as an assassin for hire and a traveling mercenary. His recent employers are (unknown to him) a group of fallen angels under (ANTAGONIST) that are targeting angels that were secretly working with the Vatican. This led to his eventual entanglements with the Arcanum.
Lucas was the youngest child and only son of the Emperess of New Byzantion. As the next heir to the throne, he lived a distant life to most of his family (except his mother) and was often found in the company of the empire’s army men & the town (disguised as a peasant boy). His guardian was General Ion, head of the New Byzantion army and former mercenary and was the one who taught Lucas combat training.
An attack headed by the demons (Lucas age: 11-13) in the empire caused many casualities and discovered General Ion was working under the service of leader of the demonic attack. Lucas perceived the leader as an angel (traitor) who was working with demons. He witness the as the angel protected him from the demon, yet killed his mother. Lucas escaped (complex: trust no one). New Byzantium rebuild
itself under the rule of his older sister Caterina and has become a walled city.
Lucas disguises himself as a travelling bard in different towns and villages, at the same time training under various “vagabonds” with renowed combat skills. He’s well known to be an efficient assassin and has killed humans, demons and angels. He was hired recently by fallen angels (ANTAGONIST) to kill the pope and the angel/adviser of the pope. His employers revealed to him their true identity and Lucas was able to drink angel’s blood to gain power for the mission. They offered him that they could return his mother to him for a brief moment in time and grant him revenge on the person responsible for his family and the empire’s demise. This led him to encounter Arcanum Cella Ex Dono Dei: failed to kill the Pope and to his failure taking Eris for hostage briefly.
Eris was forced to travel with Lucas to hide with his employers due to his failed mission but they we’re eventually found. Lucas saved Eris from imminent death from his fallen angel employers which gained Eris’ trust and respect.
Lucas shows flexibility in his decisions makes his particular approach to any situation hard to pin down, which is characteristic of him being a mercenary. He either doesn’t go into any two situations the same way, or he tries to shape his expectations to suit whatever culture or business he’s dealing with. Lucas also has a balanced mix of style, sense, and aggression make him almost completely unpredictable, both in combat and in discussion. No one is able to predict exactly what you’re going to do and say, much less what you’re thinking.
He also follows his whims. He is an individualist first and last. He values his own liberty but doesn’t strive to protect people’s freedom. Yet is friendly, most-amiable and good natured and shows loyalty to his friends and loved ones. He usually avoids authority, resents restrictions, and challenges traditions. He does not intentionally disrupt organizations as part of a campaign of anarchy. To do so, he would have to be motivated either by good (and a desire to liberate others), evil (and a desire to make others suffer), or be lawful but neutral.
