Background: Lucien was born and raised in Gridania. He became a Wood Wailer at the impressionable age of 17, and was almost immediately drawn into a subculture of corruption and power abuse. Over the next seven years he enjoyed his authority as a Wailer a little too much, earning enemies for himself among the Duskwight and Keeper populations in the Shroud. But one day, he overstepped his bounds far enough to incur the wrath of the Elementals. He disappeared, and was not seen or heard of until he walked into Gridania six years later - shortly after the Calamity, in fact - looking as wild as the woods he had just emerged from. By that time, he was a very different person from the cocky Wood Wailer who had once terrorized minorities and used his position for personal gain. He left the Shroud soon thereafter, and has rarely visited it since. Despite his reluctance to return to the Twelvewood, he seems to have embraced nature as a whole. He collects animals in need of rehabilitation wherever he goes. Some he releases back into the wild, while others seem content to remain with him indefinitely. He also has a remarkable power to manipulate plants and accelerate their growth. This ability seems to be so much a part of him that he can’t help using it.
