Born in: Etruria
Story: Lucien Chevalier was born near the border of Lycia southwest of Ostia and northeast of Nabata. Lucien's father, Jean Chevalier, is a high ranking officer in the Etrurian army and commanded a Regiment in peace-keeping within Bern for a very short period of time before Ilian forces took over his sector. Things were going well until the Prophet took power and ousted most of the Eturian nobility including the Chevalier family. Luckily they were able to avert the Ostian disaster and now live deep within Lycia, their fortune heavily impacted by the ousting. They still wish to return to Etruria one day and reclaim their lands and heritage, but with the current situation in Bern as well as Lycia's fragmentation, it may take many more years until their fated day will come. They currently live outside of Ryerde.
Lucien's early life was rigorous with taking the time in learning the military arts, schooling in prestegious academies, as well as serving at a chapel of St. Elimine for a short time. While here he developed a defining trait, kindness. It has given him a lot of trouble throughout the years with those in his class or going out of his way for someone less fortunate. However, it had gained him a good reputation with the regular people. While he was too young to be of significant influence since his ousting from Etruria, now he is taking on journeys to bring peace to Elibe and retake Etruria from the heretical Prophet. An arranged marriage is planned with one of the lesser nobles in Ryerde as thanks for their kindness as well as a political step forward in case Etruria isn't able to be retaken. At first Lucien did not approve, but with having spent enough time with his fiance over the years, he's become devoted to her.
In recent months, Lucien has convinced his family to let him journey and collect wealth, lances, and increase the influence of the Chevalier name. A personal idol for him being the knight "Rayl", his valiant deeds and tales of adventure jolting him from his roost. Making his way through Lycia, he plans on making a stop near Santaruz, a likely spot to find work or those for hire that weren't the cutthroat types like in Badon.
Whilst travelling through Laus, he began to get a wider picture of the world around him and Lycia's relationship with the rest of Elibe. The people were very much divided and surrounded by conflict outside of their borders and within. It was with this that Lucien's resolve strengthened, for the end of these conflicts.
Lucien could be described as deeply religious, feeling that the teachings of St. Elimine apply to everything in life. He feels divided between the simplistic life of a priest and a warrior noble of Etruria. They both have deep influences on him and his behavior. Because of his religion he has no tolerance of "cursed black magic" and is even wary of Anima magics if used in a purely selfish way. However, his religion is not blinding and sees the faults of the Etrurian theocracy as well as their heresy against the true teachings of St. Elimine.
The noble also is a bit obsessed with his appearance, polishing his armor and getting any damage fixed right away. He is also fanatical about training, being early to wake to get in any sort of drill or physical training.
Even with his age and experiences, he has a bit of a naive outlook on the darker corners of humanity and tries to keep things simple within his own mind. Has a bit of a "watchdog" personality.
Only time will tell if this man at arms will have an impact on the events to come.
