Lucius grew up in an orphanage after his father, a mercenary, was killed by a thief 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'.
Lucius is the only playable Monk in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. He is playable in both Lyn's, Eliwood's, and Hector's tales. The game's tutorial uses Lucius to explain Light magic's place in the trinity of magic.
Lucius takes notice of the nearby commotion when Nils is thrown out of the local inn after looking for help to locate Ninian. When a member of the Black Fang threatens Nils Lucius steps up and defeats him. Lucius then joins Lyn to look for Ninian.
Lucius reappears, with Raven, in Caelin during Chapter 16 of Eliwood's story or Chapter 17 of Hector's story. Raven will speak with the Black Fang guard outside the cell, mentioning that he has a grudge against Ostia, and thus Hector, and convinces the guard to let him out to fight Hector and Eliwood. Lucius objects to this, but Raven tells him to stay in the cell for his own safety.
During turn 7 the imprisoned Caelin soldiers accompanying Lucius, having noticed that Lyn has returned with reinforcements, take out keys and weapons from a hidden place in the cell and let themselves out. Lucius opts not to leave and instead remains in the cell to wait for Raven's return. The Caelin soldiers are sympathetic and give him supplies to defend himself and leave.
Once Priscilla has spoken to Raven he can return to Lucius's cell and convince him to come along with Eliwood's and Hector's group.

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 . In the orphanage, Lucius was teased for his feminine appearance, memories that he still recalls in his support conversations . Even when somebody reminds him of his difficult past, Lucius remains polite and kind, and is more concerned for others than himself.
During stressful situations Lucius has a condition, that his bishop has called a "sickness of the soul", where he will become greatly distressed. During these attacks he will pale and appears to have trouble speaking.
