Lucan is a superb general with a dry wit, skepticism, a reckless disposition, and a great fighter. He is seen as representing the rogue and “a very practical guy, at least how he thought of himself, a materialist. But he was a compassionate human being at the same time and didn’t know it.”

He became a friend of Haqqith, an older thief. Together, they terrorize the whole area but finally caught by authorities.
