Luca is the illegitimate son of Princess Aulelia, of the Gedonelune royal family, being his full name is Luciano Orudeus Gedonelune. Aulelia died near his birth, leaving him in the guardianship of the Royal Advisor Conrad Schuyler. As Schuyler became a professor at the Academy, both of them started to live there. Luca was unaware of his past til Day 11-3 of his main route.
Luca is know throughout Gedonelune Academy for his bad behavior, skipping classes and dislike of authority. Although he plays a somewhat heroic role in his route, Luca turns out to be somewhat antagonistic in the other routes for the Tower of Sorrow Mystery Series.
In others series, particularly Vincent and Leon routes, Luca is nosy, questioning them regarding the academy mysteries. Also he can be teasing Liz a lot, but he's genuinely caring towards her.
In his route, he meets Liz (MC) just after a carbuncle is placed on her head. Because she can't see the creature, she's frightened of it, especially when Luca (after laughing at her) tells her that the creature on her head has fangs and it could bite. However, when she discovers it's a carbuncle, she hugs it and tries to befriend him. Luca mentions that that particular carbuncle is rare because it's pink (normally the carbuncles are white).
After teasing Liz for while (saying that he had a magic ability that can decipher a person's features, like height or weight; or that his name was Serge Druandal), their emblems glow, making them buddies (though Liz doesn't know what this means yet). He bolts after hearing Elias calling out to him. Elias questions Liz about Luca's whereabouts, but after learning she's a new student, he leavs her as well. Later, Liz continues searching for the girls dorm. She meets Yukiya and he shows her the way to the dorm.
Luca is regarded as a troublemaker and prankster by his classmates and teachers. He rarely attends classes, especially those he considers boring. He is carefree and flamboyant, and these traits put him in frequent conflict with Elias, who harbors a bitter dislike for him coupled with a fascination and envy for Luca's natural magic ability.
Despite his truancy and cavalier attitude towards his studies, Luca is highly skilled with magic. In addition to great magical power, his approach to magic is also innovative and creative, and he is sometimes compared to famous and powerful wizards like Claude Molders and Serge Durandal. However, his spellcasting is arbitary and seems to be self-taught, considering he skips most of his classes.
Luca frequently skips class and can be found usually napping in the Archives, near the lake, or in other quiet areas. He also has a penchant for slipping off the school grounds and visiting town. Luca enjoys drawing, and is known to be a bit of a clotheshorse.
But it is learned in His Sweet 'n Spicy Special Lesson event that he hates sharing pieces of himself with people he doesn't trust, and that he has a hard time trusting people.
Magical Abilities Edit
Luca is considered a magical prodigy, but he often uses his skills for pranks. He states repeatedly through his own route and spin-offs that he isn't concerned with developing his skills, partly out of cockiness, but also out of disinterest in competition and grades.
He seems to have a penchant for potions, as many of his spinoffs feature him developing potions of some sort. The Magic Competition spinoff implies that he spends a lot of his free time mixing concoctions, sneaking into classrooms after-hours to do so.
He is a direct descendant of Claude Moulders and the First King of Gedonelune, both highly renowned wizards, and presumably this is where his extremely high affinity for magic comes from. The MC states that his magic has a "fairy tale" feel to it. In Sigurd's route, when the students with the highest magical affinity come forward to aid in the battle against darkness, Luca is among those who come forward, along with Randy, Klaus, Joel, Sigurd, and the MC.
His magic isn't as strong or developed as Professor Schuyler's, likely due to the fact that he doesn't apply himself in training.
- His age is approximately 19-22.
- According to Professor Schuyler, Luca has been held back 4 times, suspended 3 times, put in the detention chamber 7 times, and given a stern warning 138 times.
- Luca uses his left hand to cast his spells.
- Ironically he calls Elias, "Prince Elias" due to his majestic and gallant pose as well as his high moral and sense of duty. But in reality Luca is the real one with royal blood, though he doesn't know of this until almost at the end of his route, and is unclear that in other routes he knows about his past.
