Lucius is a monk who wants to help Nils and Ninian after seeing the harsh treatment others give them. He immediately joins Lyndis's Legions and stays with them for some time. Despite this, he neglects to tell them his youth as an orphan and spending time in a horrible orphanage where his abuse gave him a sickness of the soul. In addition, he does not tell Lyn (who is the granddaughter of the Marquess of Caelin) about being a vassal for Raven who is one of the last members of House Cornwell of Lycia that was brought down by their own hand.
