Lucian The Divine
(or rather, his statue)
Lucian The Divine is a major character in Divinity: Original Sin 2.
Lucian's History Information
- Lucian is a major influence over the actions of many of the characters in Divinity: Original Sin 2, and is an integral part of Rivellonian history having taken part in the events that shaped the missions of the main story. He was the canonical player character in Divine Divinity, another Larian Studios game that pre-dates the events of Divinity 2.
- Lucian ascended to divinity in 1218 AD, and was pronounced dead in 1233 AD.
- The Divine Order; the leading faction of the races of Rivellon, was founded by Lucian in order to counter the actions of the Black Ring and the Voidwoken. Details of this can be found throughout the game through interactions with Divine Order factions, such as the Magisters, the Paladins and the Seekers.
- He was seen as a noble and just figure by the people of Rivellon. Due to his death shortly before the events of the game, the world and its citizens are hopeless and lost, desperately anticipating the ascension of his son Alexandar, hoping that with the rise of a new Divine the world can be saved.
- Citizens of Rivellon can be found throughout the game (especially in areas such as Arx Cathedral) praying for his return, pledging their souls and their hearts to him in the hopes that it would bring him back from the dead.
- His body rests in a crypt in the city of Arx. It is protected by a security system known as the Path of Blood, a test designed to determine whether or not a person is "pure" - free of sin.

Lucian in Divinity: Original Sin 2
- Beyond his statues, Lucian does not make an appearance in the game as an NPC - that is until the player reaches the final chapter and completes the quest Hammerfall. There in his crypt in Arx it is revealed that Lucian is in fact alive, hiding from the sight of the Seven Gods and leading the actions of Dallis and her Magisters from behind the scenes.
- Through conversation with Lucian and Dallis, it is revealed that the Seven Gods; formerly a group of ancient Eternals, stole source from a wall between dimensions known as The Veil.
- Lucian continues, stating that: upon realising the existence of the Veil thanks to the work of the Eternal Scholar Fane, the gods' greed lead them to cast their Eternal brethren (notably the God King) into the Void, forever damning their brothers and sisters in return for the vast power of the Source. They took too ravenously from the Veil however, leaving a hole in it that would allow their now Voidwoken relatives to return and seek revenge.
- Through the use of the Aeteran, Lucian and Dallis intend to heal the Veil by purging all Source, lifting it from the mortal races and returning it to the Veil itself. Believing the God King and his followers to be nothing but savage, corrupted monsters, the pair believe that the only way to save Rivellon is through the sacrifice of all Source, rendering even Lucian without power in an attempt to stop the Void once and for all.
- After the conversation with Lucian has concluded the player will be given two options: to allow themselves to be purged of their source, or to defend themselves against Lucian's purging. Whether or not the player decides to fight Lucian, Vredeman (revealed through the conversation to be the reanimated Braccus Rex) will take over the fight, leading to a much greater battle shortly afterwards.

Notes and Tips
- It's possible to avoid fighting Lucian and Dallis by choosing to be drained of your Source at the end of the dialogue with them. You won't immediately be drained, as Braccus will start a fight of his own. Lucian, Dallis and the other Magister characters will remain allied with you during the battle, leaving only Braccus and his minions to deal with.
- Lucian's 10 Leadership can make it much more difficult to deal any proper damage to his allies so long as he's nearby. Teleporting him away is often the best solution to this, due to Leadership's small effective range.
- In the second portion of the fight, Braccus will unleash his power aided by the God King, summoning the Kraken. The Kraken itself will summon minions - Sworn servants of the God King such as Linder Kemm, Isbeil and the Sallow Man.
- Should you choose to go against Lucian and fight everyone, the fight will not end until Braccus has taken significant damage. If you kill all of the Magisters as well as Dallis and Lucian before lowering Braccus' health, it can make the second portion of the fight much more difficult, as you are left vulnerable to direct attacks from Braccus' much more powerful minions.
