Lucien is a high speed, low strength legend, featuring the Katars and Blasters as his weapons. He can be unlocked for 5400 gold. Brought to Valhalla from Revolutionary France, and one of the most notorious highwaymen of his era, Lucien wears a typical highwayman's overcoat, tricorn hat and mask, all in a steely grey colour that matches his eyes. Living a double life as a decadent Count, the highwayman learned to utilize an array of violent and underhanded means of gaining wealth and influence - a trait he continues to use in the eternal tournament of Valhalla.

This Highwayman robs from the rich. And the poor. And especially the recently dead. - Mallhalla purchase description

Lore

The Highwayman

That fop Lucien Degas is the dreaded Highwayman? That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. Get out of my office. - Last words of Capitaine Eduard Lamont

In the dark violence of the French Revolution, Count Lucien Degas lived in Paris in decadent splendor. But by night, the mysterious Highwayman stalked the roads with his gang, preying on travelers without mercy. That is, until the price on his gang's head grew to a hundred thousand francs. Then Lucien promoted his second-in-command and turned them all in for the reward. He had always despised dividing his loot with inferiors, anyway.

And indeed it was as a solo artist that The Highwayman became a figure of legendary dread. Relying on his own preternatural quickness and ruthless determination, he tried his hand at every sort of crime to bankroll his lavish living. Kidnapping, bank robbing, race fixing, art forgery, horse assassination, nothing was beneath Lucien. He wreaked havoc until his name became synonymous with avarice and violence.

In Valhalla, Lucien continues to scheme for gold and power. He knows the tournament is the surest way to gain influence here, and he'll resort to any means necessary to win.

I rob from the rich because they have all the money. - Lucien

Apearance

Being from Revolutionary France, Lucien wears attire typical of his highwayman occupation. He wears a heavy but stylish grey tailed overcoat held in place with a leather belt, spatted gray riding boots, matching gloves and a simple cloth mask to cover his face and identity, which is held in place by leather thong straps. On his head he sports a men's tricorn hat which, when worn with his mask, render only his steely eyes and a flash of light blonde hair visible.

Signature Attacks

Blasters

Input Description Damage Stun Frame Advantage Force Animation Frame Data (min) Notes
Stun (total) Stun (after hit) Variable Fixed Startup Frames Active Frames Recovery Frames
Neutral Lucien takes a short step forward and fires both blasters up into the air above and slightly ahead of him in rapid succession. 27 to 33.04 33 9 -12 0 or 55 75 or 72 12 8(3)5(2)6 21 Large blast radius makes it effective for repelling high aerial approaches, though it can be easy to predict. This quick attack will hit targets standing very close to Lucien on the ground.

or

A short lunge forward with a short-range blast from the front blaster. The opponent who is struck with this attack is stunned and then struck again as Lucien leaps behind them and follows with a dual blast from both blasters into the stunned target's back. 22.92 to 33.97 49 11 -8 0 or 56 30 or 55 17 5 25 Modestly short-ranged with a long execution time, though it deals a lot of damage and delivers a lot of force. Use carefully.
Lucien leaps up and back into the air, firing both blasters down in front of him as he does so, expelling a large, death's head shaped plume of fire and smoke. Moves Lucien back slightly. 24.02 to 29.50 18 2 -20 58 50 21 16 22 Has a slight delay before the attack comes out as Lucien jumps into the air, but the smoke skull lingers slightly, giving it good covering potential. A useful retreat move.

Katars

Input Description Damage Stun Frame Advantage Force Animation Frame Data (min) Notes
Stun (total) Stun (after hit) Variable Fixed Startup Frames Active Frames Recovery Frames
Neutral Lucien leaps into the air and performs an overhead spin with both katars, slicing everything directly around him in his spot in the air and sending enemies flying forwards at the end of the move. Up to 35.40 41 12 -1 0, 0, 0 or 48 45, 50, 55 or 68 15 19(3)6 13 Has a high reach, functioning as a good anti-air move as well as being able to reach most second-level platforms from the level below. The move creates a damage zone to catch and scare away enemies. Like Queen Nai’s Katar Neutral Signature, this is Lucien’s most versatile, useful, and dangerous heavy attack.

or

A forward lunging stab with the rear katar, followed quickly with an straight uppercut stab with the front katar. Up to 28.32 37 10 -13 0, 0 or 54 71, 49 or 74 12 15(3)9 23 Has a relatively short range, but comes out surprisingly quickly. The uppercut is good for catching enemies who are trying to get on the ground or dodge you backwards.
Lucien performs a vaulting leap forward, and follows it with a crossing double-slash with both katars as he comes down. 22.09 to 27.14 18 12 -10 60 71 24 6 22 Does not hit anyone directly in front of Lucien, but has longer range than his Side Signature and works well for edge-guarding, as the swipe goes lower than the ground level if you aim it into the air and knocks the enemies downward. If you learn its distance away, it can become an excellent move to surprise the enemy at an inconvenient range.

Strategy

General

Use of Signatures

  • If your opponent is coming back towards the edge, try to use your DSig with katars due to its large horizontal hitbox and due to the final part of the attack slightly descending you over the edge and slightly downwards. This will be unexpected and also has lots of force and will most likely lead to a stock loss for your opponent.

Open Beta
Build Changes
2.62.0 • Lucien has received a fresh update to his base costume art.
• Roster icons updated to match revised character art for Lucien and Gnash.
Cleanup on character select animations: Lucien.
2.52.0 Increased travel speed to push the effective threat farther forward and make the Signature harder to outrun.
 • Lucien Down Katar – Increased travel speed before the first hit.
2.48.0 Many of Lucien’s Signatures have great utility, however the reward is slightly out of line with other similar Signatures. We have adjusted his most used Signature to be in line with other similar powers.
 • Lucien Neutral Blasters: Decreased Force from 58 Variable/72 Fixed to 55 Variable/72 Fixed.
2.33.0 Lucien has a great kit of Signature attacks, however the Down Katar could score a knockout a bit too early, so we have decreased the Variable Force.
 • Lucien Down Katar: Decreased Variable Force from 63 to 60.
2.29.0 • Signatures whose travel speed was affected by Dex retain their current travel speed but are no longer affected by stances: Cassidy Down Hammer, Orion Side Lance, Orion Side Spear, Gnash Down Hammer, Nai Down Spear, Nai Neutral Katars, Nai Side Katars, Hattori Side Sword, Roland Neutral Lance, Scarlet Down Hammer, Ada Down Blasters, Ada Neutral Spear, Sentinel Neutral Katars, Sentinel Side Katars, Lucien Side Katars, Lucien Down Katars, Asuri Side Sword, Ember Neutral Katars, Ember Side Katars, Ember Down Katars.
2.25.0 Lucien has relatively low Damage on his attacks before the Strength and Defense stats apply, leaving some attacks disproportionately weak. We are slightly increasing the Damage on the final hit of his Neutral Katars so it is not so far behind other similar attacks.
 • Lucien Neutral Katars: Increased Damage of final hit from 13 to 15.
2.16.0 • Lucien Side Katars - Fixed a case where target could be dropped before the final hit.
2.14.0 • Lucien Side Katars: Fixed some cases where target could be dropped before the final hit.

 • Lucien Side Blasters: Decreased Time to Hit from 18 to 17.
 • Lucien Neutral Katars: Increased Variable Force from 46 to 48.
2.9.0 Lucien's Neutral Blasters had a shorter Recovery Time than many light attacks, making it very difficult to punish.
 • Lucien Neutral Blasters: Increased Recovery Time from 15 to 20.
2.8.0 • Lucien Side Katar: Updated hurtboxes to better match animation.
• Lucien Down Katar: Updated hurtboxes to better match animation.
• Lucien Side Blasters: Updated hurtboxes to better match animation.
• Lucien Down Blasters: Updated hurtboxes to better match animation.
2.5.0 Lucien's Side Blasters continues to be one of his most reliable ways of gaining early knockouts, and has little Recovery Time compared to its Force. We're giving it a longer punish window.
 • Lucien Side Blasters: Increased Recovery Time on Miss from 18 to 23.
2.3.2 • Lucien Neutral Blasters: Fixed a case where target could be dropped before the final hit. (Credit DemonicBlazon, Kasane_Yoshiko)
