Lucas (ルーカス, Rūkasu?) is an escapee from Glory Bell and a friend of Yugo. He was captured by the Poachers in Goldy Pond when he and his friends traveled to the human reserve in hope of finding William Minerva. He then seemingly died at the hands of the Poachers.
Years later he reappeared alive as one of the leaders of a resistance organization located in Goldy Pond.
Lucas is a tall young man who had a rather long maroon, messy hair with thick, black eyebrows. He appeared to have light skin and light eyes.
Years later, Lucas sports a shorter version of his old hairstyle. He has three large scars on the right-hand side of his face. He also seems to have a more brownish skin color now. Lucas wears the same shoes which he wore years back. He also walks with a cane and uses a robe to cover up his body. Lucas was missing his right arm, which he lost during his fight with Leuvis, hence he walks with a cane since then, for more stability.
Lucas is a kind individual who cares deeply about the well being of his friends. The loss of his friends by the hands of the Poachers affected him a lot and caused him hate the Poachers, wanting to destroy Goldy Pond as a whole. He also appeared to serve as a brotherly figure to the younger orphans in Shelter B06-32 as well as Goldy Pond. He also appears to have a lot of courage when he decided to give his life for the unnamed man in order for him to survive. Having survived the attack, he later decided to live inside Goldy Pond, because of the deep resentment of his murdered comrades and for the fact that he does not want to leave the current children all alone. He also cried tears of joy when he heard from Emma that the unnamed man is still alive, implying how much he cared about him.
Lucas was born in 2017, and he being sent to Plant 3 a year later in 2018, growing up along with Yugo and several other children.Around 13 years ago, Lucas was one of the escapees from Glory Bell orphanage alongside Yuugo, Dinah, Jon and a few other orphans.
The group eventually stumbled into Goldy Pond, where they struggled to fight the Poachers in order to get back to the shelter safe and sound. Nevertheless, Lucas and his friends were hunted by Leuvis and – one by one – were massacred by the Archduke. Being the only person among his friends who survived Leuvis' attacks – in which the latter teared off his right arm, Lucas managed to escape from Leuvis while enduring the intense pain from what was left of his right arm.
As he went into hiding from Leuvis, a mysterious girl ran into Lucas and aid him with his injury to prevent him from bleeding to death. Lucas and the girl later lived together in a windmill in Goldy Pond before the girl's passing five years later.
No longer able to tolerate the pain and suffering of the orphas in Goldy Pond, Lucas vowed to put an end to their misery and destroy Goldy Pond. As years passed, Lucas founded the Goldy Pond Resistance and gathered surviving children of numerous hunts and made them join his resistance group. Making them part of him team.
Months after the departure of Emma, Ray, Gilda, Don, Zack and Violet, the team finally returned back to the shelter unharmed. Lucas and the other inhabitants of the shelter happily welcome the team's return.

Not much is known about their relationship but they appeared to be close friends who grew up together in the same orphanage. They escaped together with several other Glory Bell orphans and began living in a shelter underground. They seemed happy and everything was in its place until all the children with the exception of the unnamed man lost their lives in the battles with the Wild Demons and the Poachers, including Lucas who gave his life to give the unnamed man an opportunity to escape, showing how much he cared for the unnamed man. This left the unnamed man heart-broken for over thirteen years. Having survived the attack from the Poachers, Lucas even cared about the man's well being for over thirteen years.
