As you can imagine, the process of doing all this (scanning, editing, translating, etc) takes a lot of time…so if feeling generous, than please consider donating! It helps fund future projects. : )
Class: Swordmaster > Trueblade
Approx. Age: 25
A talented Swordmaster and daughter of the noble house Delbray in Crimea. Geoffrey’s older sister. She is Queen Elincia’s milk sibling, sharing a bond just as deep as real sisters.
Though graceful and refined like the noble she is, her sword arm puts many men to shame. She is Elincia’s trusted friend and would protect her at the cost of her own life. She excels at her duties, such as gathering intelligence. She is also highly adaptable and quick witted enough to come up with brilliant strategies in emergencies, which impresses even Bastian.
During the Crimean Civil War, Lucia was captured by Ludveck, Duke of Felirae, while investigating who was behind the rebellion against Elincia. Ludveck chopped off Lucia’s long hair and sent it to Elincia as a way to make it known he had taken her.
Elincia faced a great dilemma –would she spare Lucia or sacrifice her for the sake of the country’s future? Eventually, Elincia resolutely decided to prioritize the country as its Queen –a move Lucia expected and praised, having already been prepared to die for the country if need be.
In the end, the Greil Mercenaries had suddenly appeared and saved Lucia. These incidents only served to strengthen Lucia’s loyalty toward Elincia.
