Lucien is tall and slender in the way a dancer is slender, all muscles and
shoulders planed down to a smooth, graceful machine of flesh. He has bold facial
features and unmistakable gold eyes swirled with green.
Even though Lucien dislikes his were gene, being the Leader of the Shapeshifters,
he is protective of them and is very loyal, remembering the time of Daemon.
There are a few exceptions, for some of the clan seem to forget that he is the
Alpha and that they're under his rule. Lucien has his suspicions about some of
the others, but he keeps them hidden, not wanting to cause any more fury than
there already is. He's naturally stern, but at the same time can be a good
companion to people he trusts, though that is very rare. He has looks and the
charm to match it when willing, almost to match the pheromone cocktail.
Lucien does not easily trust someone right off the bat, and it takes enormous
amounts of time, unless you just get on his good side an impress him enough to
trust you. The only people he can consider to be on a trusting basis would be
Doyle and Gunn, whom he has known for years. Lucien's relationships with the
other Chimaera are formal and discreet, and does not spend much time with them
in 'friendly' conversations. He is not extremely close to
anyone, save his friendship with Doyle, though does not enjoy the fact that his
best friend is Gia’s animal and that he doesn’t mind the position. Lucien is
very wary of Queen Gitanne and her powers, still on the edge of respecting her
or disliking her altogether, though given his current situation, disliking her
is what he faces now, for Lucien strives to get the Shapeshifters to greatness
and will have to overthrow the Noblesse. He believes that the proverbial keys
are the Shapeshifters' chance to this goal, though there is a part of him
holding back. Could the other side be as evil as some of them keep saying?
The Past -
Not much is known to others about
Lucien's past. He is as mysterious as he is dangerous when on the 'wrong' side.
"An enemy you would hate to have, and and ally you would love." Though what is
known is that ten years ago Lucien was one of the country’s most successful and
respected lawyers. He had made it his life’s work to make sure that justice was
served and that wrongs were righted. That need to protect and avenge others did
not change when he first met Daemon, the former King of the Shapeshifters. He’d
heard stories of course, of the man's cruelty to those who would seek his
guidance and protection.
Lucien stayed out of the Clan’s politics and kept a low profile among his own
kind, so Daemon was of little consequence. That is until he met Vanessa, whom he
had shared a close bond with. Though only for a short while, her interest in
Lucien and their time together made him forget about his unwanted gift. He had
seen Daemon tear her apart day after day, though, until the only escape from the
Hell she was living in was death, which brought an emptiness deep within; a
small part that he looks back on, yet not extreme enough to interfere with his
life. Vanessa wasn’t the only innocent that was suffering by her King’s hand and
Lucien vowed to stop him once and for all. After an intense battle for power
with Daemon that almost cost him his life, Lucien became Alpha Male and the new
Leader and Protector of the Shifters.
Of all the Council Member’s, he tries to stay out of the limelight and shifts it
to the other members of his ‘family.’ He has had a hard time fully embracing his
nature and enduring the prejudice that every were faces. Lucien is still a
lawyer and is either always working on cases, Chimaera businesses, or
searching... for yet another of the proverbial keys.
The Present - Lucien discovered Wendigo's Paw, one of the 13 Fabled Keys and its
activation resulted in the devastating EMP that hit the city. He's faced an
attempted takeover by Keil, seen his best friend go through a deep depression
and turn to drugs, and watched as needless shifters around the world are tormented
by the wolves he is finding hard to control. He meant to make the Shifters independent,
free of any control. He wanted to make them great. But is it too late?
