One of the may personalities of Xabian Etru Cth, changeling master of disguise. He is likeable enough, but talks almost exclusively about himself and cares little about what others have to say. He does not gauge others’ reactions to his words, so has difficulty perpetuating fabrications. His forgeries, however, are flawless.

Lucien is a steward to a minor noble in a minor city outlying Solarion. His duties here were to spy on the noble and relay the details back to his home people. After a year of making weekly reports (on the movement of chickens, the number of stockings hanging on the wash line in the peasants’ quarter, and the like) and hearing no response from his family, he begins to wonder whether they have forgotten him. He was recently tasked by his lord to travel to Solarion to procure a residence, as a bountiful harvest has swelled the coffers and the young lord wishes to make his name known. During his voyage, Lucien’s ship was wrecked off the coast and he found himself stranded near the town of Sandpointe. From there, his adventure began.
