Lucius, better known as "Luca" is a Vampire of noble birth in Jun Mochizuki's The Case Study of Vanitas. Luca arrived in Paris alongside his chevalier Jeanne in pursuit of destroying The Book of Vanitas in order to liberate Luca's elder brother, who had become a Curse-Bearer. Having successfully managed to track down Vanitas, Luca reluctantly allowed Jeanne to attack Vanitas and Noé Archiviste in order to retrieve The Book of Vanitas. However, Luca's motivations were thwarted by Vanitas when he successfully managed to disorient Jeanne with through a combination of cunning and charm; much to Luca's chagrin.
Presently, Luca has encountered Noé once again at a Bal Masque in Altus, having previously been feverishly searching for his uncle among the party goers.
