Starting class



Fire Emblem

I'm not a cleric. I’m a monk, so... So......
— Lucius to Serra during a support conversation.

Lucius (Japanese: ルセア Ruthea) is a playable character in Fire Emblem. He is a devout follower of St. Elimine, the founder of Etruria.

Fire Emblem


Lucius grew up in an orphanage after his father, a mercenary, was killed by a thief[1] and his mother passed away of illness. Eventually, Lucius decided to become a monk, and during his travels became a retainer of House Cornwell. There he met Raymond, who would become his closest friend. After the destruction of House Cornwell, Lucius began traveling with a vengeance-driven Raymond, now know as 'Raven'.

Lyn's story

Lucius is available for recruitment in Chapter 7 of Lyn's story. He will automatically join the party. He first appears when Nils is thrown out of an inn by its innkeeper. When a shaman threatens Nils and Lyn, Lucius steps in and defeats him. Lucius and Nils will join Lyn until Lord Lundgren is defeated.

Eliwood/Hector's story

Along with Raven, Lucius is imprisoned within Castle Caelin in Chapter 16 of Eliwood's story or Chapter 17 of Hector's story. Raven will leave the prison cell as a stationary enemy unit, and will join the party if spoken to with Priscilla. Speaking to Lucius with Raven will recruit Lucius to the party.

Personality and character

As expected of a follower of St. Elimine, Lucius is a gentle, understanding man who believes in healing the suffering of others, such as his dear friend Raven.
However, he has had his own share of hardship in regards to the passing of his parents and his early life in an orphanage [2]. In the orphanage, Lucius was teased for his feminine appearance, memories that he still recalls in his support conversations [3]. Even when somebody reminds him of his difficult past, Lucius remains polite and kind, and is more concerned for others than himself.

Etymology and other languages

Names, etymology and in other regions
Language Name Definition, etymology and notes
English Lucius A masculine name with usage in English and Ancient Roman culture. Is is derived from the Latin word lux, meaning "light." Two Etruscan kings of early Rome had this name, in addition to Lucius Annaeus Seneca, a statesman, philosopher, orator and tragedian. The name is mentioned briefly in the New Testament belonging to a Christian in Antioch, and has been used by three popes, including Saint Lucius.[4]
Japanese ルセア Officially romanized as Ruthea.
Spanish Lucius
French Lucius
German Lucius
Italian Lucius


  • Due to Lucius's very feminine appearance, he is commonly mistaken as a woman by fans of the game.
  • Although Lucius does not appear in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade, it is possible that he took care of Lugh, Chad, Raigh, and other small children in his orphanage in Araphen. If this is the case, then it can be implied that he was the 'father' of the orphanage killed by the Bern soldiers during the war.

  1. "Forgive me, son. In those days... I only thought of myself... I trespassed against many in my singular drive to regain the friend I lost...and to satiate my own...monstrous greed. I even sacrificed... the lives of others... Forgive me... [...] But you... You cannot know the evil I have wrought... I did it! I killed your father..." - Renault, apologizing to Lucius for the death of his father., Fire Emblem
  2. "Lucius:My father was a soldier for hire. He died...when I was three.
    Serra:Ohh... Then... How did you live?
    Lucius:My mother died shortly after of a wasting sickness. When she breathed her last... they took me in at the orphanage, where I spent several years...
    " - Lucius and Serra's A support, Fire Emblem
  3. "Priscilla:You are--how can I say this?--beautiful. Your face is like a woman’s... No... Your face is even more beautiful than that of a woman... ...I’m sure even a few lords must have fallen for you...
    Lucius:You...must understand. I am...a man. As a child, I was often teased for my appearance, and I have never once profited from it.
    " - Lucius and Priscilla's B support, Fire Emblem
