Luccia (ルチアナ Ruchiana?) is the scientific genius of the Acacia Dragoons in Viper Manor, able to reanimate Dragonian technology and craft startlingly original innovations of her own in Chrono Cross. She speaks with a Transylvanian accent, indicated by the exclusion of "h" sounds and the substitution of "w" sounds for "v" sounds in her speech.
"T'ank you. I vas able to gat'er valuable data. And... uhhh... Serge... Grow up to be a fine young man!"
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Luccia has purple hair that she keeps combed back and fastened in a bronze-colored bandana. On her left eye, she wears a monocle and her eyes are light brown. Luccia sports a white lab coat, tailored to resemble a lady's blazer and skirt; trimmed with black, boasts several bronze buttons and cuff-links, and has an exaggerated black and bronze collar. On her feet, she wears white heeled shoes over tight black stockings. Across her right hip, she sports a black and bronze striped belt.
Storyline[edit | edit source]
She probably originated from Porre; the militaristic city became her main place of employment, as she worked with her brother, another scientific genius whose personal project was the creation of Grobyc. She met Lucca during her time on the mainland; the two exchanged notes and dialogue about a variety of subjects. While Luccia remained stoic about most subjects when conversing with others, she took much pride and enthusiasm in her work and jumped at opportunities to collect new data. Unfortunately, tragedy would strike her life three times. Around the year 1011 A.D., she was involved with the falling out of Fargo and General Viper. She tried to assist Zelbess and Marcy, Fargo's wife and newborn daughter respectively, but was only able to save the child. She felt responsible for the occurrence and watched over Marcy's development from afar. Four years later, around 1015 A.D., Lynx and Harle burned Lucca's house to the ground. Fortunately, Lucca had left a letter with Luccia with instructions telling her to give the correspondence to Kid in 1020 A.D. The last tragic event to befall Luccia was the death of her brother in a lab explosion at Porre. Set by Norris to destroy the StrongArm and protect the world from a potentially dangerous Grobyc, it claimed her brother's life, though he was able to save Grobyc.
To get away from it all, Luccia moved to El Nido and took up residence in Viper Manor. There, she created a few pet projects of her own. She was able to reanimate Cybot defenders created by the Dragonians, and also constructed a few of her own defense units called Bulbs. Her greatest works were NeoFio and Pip, two unique life forms that could evolve under certain conditions. She met Serge in her laboratory in 1020 A.D. during his raid on the manor; she told him to come to visit her after the night's events came to a close. Serge unlocked Pip's cage at this time, allowing the creature to run free. When Serge returned, Luccia noted that she could collect many new data by accompanying him on his quest, and sojourned with them thereafter. Pip eventually successfully evolved, and NeoFio was brought to life with the Life Sparkle. After Kid was revived from her coma, Luccia finally gave her the letter from Lucca. Luccia then briefly studied Grobyc before assisting Serge in his attack on the Time Devourer.

Name Etymology[edit | edit source]
Luccia's name appears to be an adaptation of Lucia, the female derivative of Lucius. In Catholic Traditions, Lucia was the name attributed to a Saint who was titled "Healer of the Blind". This is appropriate as Luccia rescues and raises Marcy after failing to save the girl's mother, Zelbess.
