Lucien

From X-Men: rEvolution
Avec plaisir.
Introduction

xxxxxWould be a misanthrope if he didn't find humanity so fascinating. Has a strong moral compass, really, it is just calibrated at right angles to most people's.

Description

xxxxxDirty blonde hair is arranged in artfully tousled disarray to frame classically masculine features. Cheekbones are set high, brilliantly emerald-green eyes set deep and fringed with thick lashes, jaw strong, nose straight. His skin is tanned lightly, and without visible blemish. Just over six feet of height is filled out by an athletic physique, muscles well-defined without being overly bulky. He carries himself with an easy grace, and a confidence that, occasionally, borders on arrogance.

Reputation

xxxxxFor aficionados of the stage, known for headlining some Broadway roles both musical and non; has a small but ardent base of devotees among musical theatre nerds specifically; is particularly notable for his latest role, Lost!, a musical for which he won a Tony for Best Lead Actor. For those who move in Extremely Wealthy/Powerful circles is better-known albeit in a low key way -- around Hellfire Club types, known as a very quietly helpful Person Who Knows People. Always seems to have the right contacts and information to make business and social transactions go just a little bit smoother. Has a steadily growing reputation in those same circles as being an uncannily good person to talk to to quietly fix problems.

History

xxxxxThe second of five children, largely by different fathers, born in Montreal though transplanted to New York during one of his mother's string of failed marriages. Home life was shitty. Left it around the beginning of his teenage years when his mutation developed.

He's since found his way into a number of roles -- both onstage and off. He has been enjoying moderate success on Broadway; to make ends meet in between landing theatre gigs he keeps a part-time position as a concierge at the Hellfire Club, though a decent chunk of his income comes from the sex work clients he's kept on.

Powers

xxxxxLucien will mess with your head.

Trivia
  • Recent Acting roles:
    • January - December, 2016: Had the headlining role in Pippin at the Music Box theatre.
    • August - November 2017: Starred in an limited run off-broadway production of Breakroom at the Vineyard Theatre, a new play dealing with a news team's decision to publish a whistleblower's story about government corruption, and the fallout that ensues.
    • October 2018-March 2020: Starring role in a new musical, Lost! at the Marquis Theatre, about the adventures of a young girl abducted to a fairyland. Is hard to recognize offstage, as the costuming for his character (only referred to as 'the faun' during the show itself though hardcore fans do know that the faun's name is Ibeonus) involves extremely heavy makeup and prosthetics. (Won Tony for Best Lead Actor - Musical in 2019; the show itself won several other technical awards as well. During the 2020 Covid-19 Crisis, Lost! was the first Broadway show to voluntarily close before all of Broadway shut down. The show is still available for streaming online.)
      • Lost! Song List
        • Act One:
          • "The Good Daughter" - Mother (Mother worries her ability to connect with her daughter, who is unable to speak to her.)
          • "Lost" - the Girl (The Girl fears she has lost her mother's love, then realizes she is literally lost.)
          • "How Could I Know?" - the Girl (The Girl laments being expected to know how to behave, growing steadily more defiant, not knowing the Faun is following her from the trees.)
          • "Stranger" - the Faun, the Girl (The Faun appears and offers to guide the Girl to safety. "If so you say, surely it's true/But I am no stranger than you")
          • "Green and Growing Things" - the Faun, the Girl, Chorus (The Faun welcomes the Girl to his forest, introducing her to its denizens. The best-known and most iconic number in the show. Show tagline: "You're only as lost as you feel you are, here amongst the green and growing things")
          • "Untapped Potential" - the Faun, the Girl (The Faun teaches the Girl to dance.)
          • "Why Not?" - the Faun, Faeries (The Faun's friends convince him to keep the Girl.)
          • "Mask" - the Girl, the Magpie Queen (The Girl is given an elaborate mask and told she has saved the forest.)
          • "The Faery Fugue" - the Chrous (A banquet is held in the girl's honor, some guests act as though they know her "Come down, come down, to this wild place/Dance and sing, and find your place.")
          • "Changeling" - the Girl (The Girl flees from the Faun, and after seeing her special influence over the forest wonders if she might be the child that he lost, after all. Show tagline: "The world is lush with wonders")
        • Act Two:
          • "Wilder" - Goblins (A band of goblins waylay the Girl. This number is one of the most overtly disturbing in the show, as the goblins discuss eating the girl or stealing her memories so she will join them. "Here on the wilder side of night, who can really say what's right?")
          • "Lost (Reprise)" - the Girl (Fleeing through a dark and frightening wood, the Girl wonders if she can or will be loved as herself.)
          • "Trove" - the Magpie Queen, Magpies (The Magpie Queen shows the Girl her treasures and offers some advice)
          • "Irreplaceable" - the Faun (The Faun realizes maybe he shouldn't kidnap children and pretend they're his dead daughter.)
          • "How Could I Know? (Reprise)" - the Faun (The Faun despairs, not knowing the the Girl is alive and has decided to journey back to him.)
          • "Song of the Earth" - the Alderman (An old tree guy sings about being old and a tree. It's a lovely number but no one knows its relevance to the story.)
          • "Green and Growing Things (Reprise)" - the Faun, the Girl, Chorus (The Faun admits his error and finds healing in the Girl's love. "Before I could not imagine the cost/Now I finally know how much I lost.")
          • "Found" - the Girl, the Faun (The Girl bids the Faun farewell and returns to her world. "Wherever you stray, wherever you roam/May you never lose your way, may you always find a home.")
          • "The Good Mother" - Mother, the Girl (The Girl and her mother finally connect.)
          • "Wild Magic" - Ensemble (The Girl returns to play in her mother's garden, seeing it in the new light of the wonder and magic she had learned in the forest.)
  • Due to his theatre career, has a decent number of easily googleable articles, interviews, etc. about him floating around. Some notable points that are either common knowledge among his fans or easy to pick up through a cursory google search:
    • Spent a while homeless as a teenager; devotes a good amount of time and energy these days to supporting homeless youth services in the city.
    • Speaks openly about his history in sex work while homeless/poor as well as his history with drug addiction; is a strong advocate of more widely available harm reduction services.
    • Known in the industry as kind of a ridiculous workaholic, impossibly organized, impeccably punctual, keeps a nonsense schedule even for an actor.
    • Has a reputation among fans and crew for being fairly personable and engaged.
    • Has quietly sidestepped the question any time his sexuality/relationship /love life (or lack thereof) has come up in an interview; he's an immaculately groomed Broadway actor living in the heart of Greenwich, though, so that hasn't stopped plenty of assumptions.
    • Though he has not made much notice of talking about this in interviews elsewhere, caught the attention of more observant fans (particularly those who are themselves neurodivergent) in what was almost an aside within a more in-depth piece in the runup to free Tonys, that focused on the extremely complex and elaborate costuming and set design for Lost (which ultimately won several technical awards for design.) In it he spoke to the adjustments and considerations that the crew had taken to accommodate an autistic lead actor in a field generally prone to a large degree of uncomfortable sensory input that actors are expected to tolerate.
  • The only obvious jewelry he typically wears is a plain black titanium ring.
  • Like his brother, is also a witch; is generally a lot more muted in his witchery than Matt, though.
