Character Name: Lucian Sapia
Backstory: Lucian was born into a family that was always travelling because of his father’s job, meaning he was always going from school to school and making new friends every year. By the time he was eight, however, he realised there was no point in making friends, as after a year he would lose contact with them. This caused Lucian to become lonely.
As a way to stop feeling so lonely, Lucian began to read a lot and saw many of the book characters as his real-life friends. This gave him a very strange personality. Another thing that caused his strange personality was his mum.
Lucian’s mum was almost as strange as Lucian, she had very weird ways of doing things and odd beliefs. She told Lucian her beliefs through her actions and telling him stories when he was younger. Lucian uses his mother’s sayings a lot and tries to copy how she does things as well.
Lucian also had a brother, his brother was five years older than him and left the household as soon as possible. His brother had always hated living with the family and when he left, the family was a lot happier due to not having him moaning every second of every day. Lucian had never got along with his brother and often found himself being bullied by him.
When Lucian was 15, he stumbled across the steampunk genre of books and was immediately fascinated by it. He fell so in love with the genre, that he changed his lifestyle to be just that little bit closer to it. This put many off talking to him, however, he didn’t care. In fact, he even began wearing steampunk styled clothing.
Lucian’s obsession with steampunk didn’t last for long though, he soon found himself getting bullied, however that wasn’t the main cause. The main cause had been his dad… His dad had told him to stop being so strange and to start trying to make friends instead of simply ignoring people.
Lucian still enjoyed steampunk after that, yet he wasn’t as obsessed.
When Lucian was 17, his dad changed job and finally, the family settled down in the town of Sussex. Lucian was happy with this and decided he would try and make a few friends as his father told him to. He failed and found that almost nobody was like him and nobody wanted to talk to him. So, he carried on like before, reading a lot, wearing odd clothes and generally being a strange person.
In Sussex, he did make one friend for a small period of time. They had got along, however, Lucian became too clingy due to not having any other friends. He also wasn’t very good at socialising with his friend’s friends and made it awkward for everyone talking to him. In the end, Lucian’s friend told him they didn’t want to hang out anymore. Lucian had blamed this on his odd clothing and immediately stopped wearing and put on normal clothing, trying to fit in
He later found himself with a new group of people and stuck around with them for a bit, however, he was always silent and never spoke a word. That was what he was told to do. All his new friends did, was talk about sports and fighting. Two things Lucian couldn’t do. Yet, he didn’t care as long as was with people.
One day, one of his new friends got into a fight with another person in an alleyway. Lucian didn’t like it and wanted to stop it, however, he didn’t try to and simply watched. When the fight was other, his friend asked him why he didn’t help fight, Lucian had told him that it wasn’t his fight. This had ended in him getting left by another group of people.
When he was 18, he made another group of friends and in this group, he could talk, however, that wasn’t for the better. Lucian would always reference his books, the type of books that almost nobody had read but him. He also got too confident and became quite annoying, however, the group still let him stay.
A year later, he still talked with these people, every day getting more confident, every day becoming more annoying, strange and odd. Lucian didn’t realise though until he was told, he didn’t like what he heard and simply left.
