Name: Lucas Faolań
Actual Age: 190
Appearing Age: 19
Lucas has short, wavy, chestnut brown hair that he keeps swept back over his scalp. His eyes are the color of storm clouds, and they are shaped like almonds. He wears rectangular, wire-rimmed glasses when he is reading or in the presence of superiors. He has lightly tanned white skin, with a long, jagged scar running up his right arm.
Lucas stands 188 cm tall and weighs about 100 kg. He is muscular, but is in no sense a bodybuilder. Around his neck he wears a small black cross that hangs from a thin silver chain. His garb is standard Shinigami attire, with his sword hanging from his right hip. When he wields his sword, he holds it in the reverse grip style.
Lucas cannot sit still for very long, he must always be doing something. He enjoys spending time with his closest friends above all else, whatever the activity. He has even been known to pick fights just to have something to do, although he rarely does this. His favorite activities are hiking and swimming. He will follow any order that he is given, unless the order is blatantly wrong morally. He enjoys spending time with small children, as often only they can match his incredible energy. He has a rather dirty mind, often laughing at things most civilized people would scoff at.
Lucas has a few things that will drive him up walls, primarily when people do not put their whole heart into something, or when someone commits horrendous acts against him or his friends. He is easily trusted, but it generally takes him a while to trust most anyone. Although he is rather childish, it takes a great effort for someone to get his to truly open his heart. Despite his childish nature, his respect for authority has, in turn, caused most to respect him as well.
Lucas was born in the 13th District of the Rukongai to a family of businesspeople. His father, Jacob, ran a clothing chain that had stores in Districts 7-49, and due to them, his family was very wealthy. His mother, Carol, ran a day care center for parents in Districts 5-20, and that brought in a little more money. He had two brothers, Charles and Benjamin, both of whom managed separate stores of his father’s chain. He was always the “problem child” though, and his parents worried constantly about him. Although most would consider his behavior to be normal for a child, his parents thought that he did little more than humiliate them.
When he was still a young child, he discovered that he could very effectively hide from most anyone. This brought him endless hours of enjoyment, hiding from his mother while she was busy with another child, causing her to frantically search for him. However, he did mature quite an amount as he got older, gaining respect for his parents and other authorities, but he never lost his inner child, still enjoying simple, even pointless, activities and objects.
He still infuriated his parents though, with his blatant refusal to sit still for lessons and when they hosted or attended parties or other such gatherings. His parents had had just about enough of his constant energy, claiming it was not gentleman-like to be unable to sit and be quiet.
He discovered his spiritual abilities during one of his lessons, when his teacher told him “For the thousandth time, sit still and be quiet!” At that, Lucas slammed his fist on the table, and the table disintegrated before he made contact. The teacher stopped in his tracks, and then promptly fell to the ground. His parents had had enough. They told him to leave the house and take his “Devil Magic” with him. He was gone in under an hour with little more than a change of clothes and some money shoved into a small bag he slung over his shoulder. He made a beeline for the Shinigami Academy, being accepted quickly after applying. He showed great proficiency in Hohō and Hakuda, but his swordsmanship and Kidō were severely lacking. He spent a great deal of time on his swordsmanship, but avoided Kidō, calling it “too passive” to be worth learning.
About a year before he was to graduate the Academy, he went on a class-wide hike in the outskirts of the Soul Society. After his group of about ten had made camp and gone to sleep, he stayed awake, staring at the large, almost reachable moon. Something inside him clicked, and he sprung up, dashing deep into the forest, far from his group. He reached a clearing in the forest, where he fell and broke his arm. He screamed out in agony, clutching his forearm. Unbeknownst to him, he had startled a group of hollow in the woods, and they came rushing to his position. Despite only being a group of about five small hollow, his broken arm prevented him from effectively fighting them. He got up, grabbing his sword off the ground and running. The tail of one of the hollows grabbed his leg and he fell. He pulled out his sword and suddenly, the words came to him. “Bite, Urufu Tsume!” Two, pitch black, clawed gauntlets covered his arms up to the elbow. His heart skipped a beat, and then, almost possessed by the spirit of life, he sliced through the hollow’s tail and grabbed its face, crushing it in his hands. The other four leapt at him, but he dodged the blows effectively, quickly dispatching each hollow. When they had all vanished, his legs gave out, and he fell to the ground, the gloves vanishing and returning to sword form. He fell asleep, only to be awoken several hours later by the members of his camping group.
He was taken immediately to the headmaster of the Academy, who demanded that he show how he could have possibly defeated five hollow in the dead of night, miles from any assistance, with a broken limb. Lucas promptly stood and drew his sword. “Bite, Urufu Tsume!” The gauntlets sprang up his arms, the black metal gleaming in the light. The headmaster threw his head back and laughed. “How very fitting!” he said, “You have unlocked your Shikai abilities!” The headmaster smiled down at Lucas. “You may go. I wish to hear good things about you from the Court Guard.”

Name: Urufu Tsume
Translation - Wolf Claw
Lucas’s sword is a Wakizashi type, measuring 18 inches in length. The hilt is made of Brown Maple wrapped by Black-Dyed Wool. The guard is circular with twin wolves carved into the wood. The sheath is made of Black Cherry and hangs from his right hip.
Name: Urufu Tsume
Urufu Tsume is a massive black wolf, weighing over two tons. He stands over 8 ft tall and is 15 ft from tip to tip. He has silver fangs and silver eyes. His fur is very much like silk, yet is easy to grip.
Urufu Tsume is very like Lucas. He is very temperamental and would dive whole-heartedly into a fight without a second thought. He does calm down quickly though, and is rather easy to get along with. He enjoys carrying Lucas around on his back while talking to him, or teaching him.
Relationship to Master
Urufu Tsume treats Lucas as a sort of younger sibling. He gives him the moral boost that he needs when Lucas feels down. He carries Lucas when he is tired, and plays with him when he is happy. Urufu Tsume is also unafraid to whoop Lucas’s butt when he needs it.
Lucas’s Inner World is a vast temperate forest, with clearings scattered among it. Like most Inner Worlds, the World changes with Lucas’s emotions. When he is happy, it is sunny. When he is sad, there are thunderstorms. When he is angry, fire breaks out. When he is fearful, it becomes a pitch black night. When he is unemotional, a light snow falls.
Call Out Phrase: Bite
When Lucas calls out his sword’s name, the hilt and guard separate from the blade with a little tug on each end by Lucas. The pieces melt onto his hands, and cover up to his elbows. They re-form into black metal gauntlets with large claws on his fingertips. The gauntlets are ridged with blades up to his elbow. Blade ridges also run up his fingers. The palms of the gauntlets are made of cowhide leather, allowing Lucas to form a fist if he so desires.

“You are an idiot, you know that right?” said Markus, shaking his head and rubbing his forehead. Lucas was climbing one of the massive trees outside the Seireitei. It seemed normal enough, but Lucas always had to kick it up a notch or twelve. He had tied one of his hands behind his back and was making sure that he only ever jumped to each of the next branches. And each branch he jumped to, he had to grab with his free hand and pull himself up. Although, considering that he was doing a pretty good job, having made it over thirty feet into the air already, he might just make it all the way to the top of the tree in this method. “When you fall and kill yourself, can I have your stuff?”
“Shut up, I know what I’m doing.” Lucas shot back. He leapt for the next branch, about four feet away and about five feet above him. His hand caught a knot on the branch, and he dug his nails into the bark. He hoisted himself onto the branch. He let out a sigh and sat down on the branch. Looking upwards, he thought ‘How much father is it to the top of this tree? It never seems to end!’ He sighed again, standing on the branch, using the trunk of the tree for support.
“Whatever man, just know that I’m taking your stuff if you do.” Markus sat down on the grass and looked out across the forest, taking in the scents and sounds of nature.
“Markus! I’m coming down!” shouted Lucas, a wide grin on his face.
“Why are you smiling lik-“
Lucas smashed into the ground, flattening the grass and denting the earth under him. “That hurt a lot more than I expected it to.” Lucas said, rubbing his shoulder and cracking his neck. He looked behind him to see Markus looming over him.
“Like I said” replied Markus, helping Lucas off the ground, “you are an idiot.”
“And proud of it. Now, let’s go get something to eat”
