    Short summary describing this character.

    Lucien last edited by gravenraven on 06/01/23 01:29AM View full history


    Lucien was originally the first Raven companion to Dream of the Endless.

    "The process was slow at first, my Lord. Things in the Dreamworld began to transmute. I was aware of it in my library... Slowly, the words began to fade. Sometime after you vanished, my books became bound volumes of blank paperr; the next day the whole library was gone. I neve found it again" -- Lucien.

    Lucien is not a person in a physical sense, though it's entirely possible he might have been once. He serves on the palace staff of Dream of the Endless as the palace librarian, overseeing a collection of every book that has ever been imagined--even if that book was never published or actually written.


    Lucien made his first brief appearance along side Eve in Weird Mystery Tales #18 written by Paul Levitz, before receiving his own short lived book with Tales of Ghost Castle #1.

    When Dream was captured by the English magician Roderick Burgess and his "Order of Ancient Mysteries," Lucien was the only member of Dream's palace staff who did not abandon his post. As a result, Dream increasingly relied on Lucien's council, and Lucien's responsibilities expanded accordingly.

    As might be expected, Lucien's a very wise, very steadfast individual, and is quick to assist and educate other members of the palace staff--especially Dream's raven, Matthew. Lucien was Dream's first raven who has stayed with him in his new role.
