Lukius Bridges (ルキウス・ブリッジス Rukiusu Buridjisu?) is one of the central antagonists in Tales of the Tempest, serving as the leader of the Church's priest-soldiers.


Lukius is the leader of the priests that are seeking Pensients. He is the right-hand man of the Pope, his father Vincent Bridges, and his goal is to hunt and execute Leymon. His mask is a symbol of his position, and he is not allowed to show his bare face. Working for the Church as leader of the priests, it is his job to round up Leymon with his partner Rommy and take them to the capital city of Janna. However, he does not like what he is doing and, in truth, wants everybody to live in a fair world. Unfortunately, he believes that genocide is the best way to go about it.

When the protagonists defeat Lukius in the desert, his mask comes off, and his face is revealed for the first time. To everyone's amazement, he looks almost exactly the same as Caius Qualls. This is because the two of them are actually brothers, separated at birth and sent to live with different parents. Caius went to live with his mother, Melissa Bridges, a Leymon woman, while Lukius went to live with his father, the human Pope. After he reveals himself to the group, he calls Caius "big brother" instead of his name. Despite subjecting hundreds of Leymon to horrible deaths at the hands of the Pope, Lukius actually wants to create a world where everybody can live peacefully. However, he has to keep capturing them until his father has enough souls to cast Life Magic, a powerful magic that will liberate his friend Rommy.

The protagonists encounter Lukius in the Church's cathedral as they try to reach the Pope himself. Refusing to let them past him, Lukius fights the group one last time. Lukius loses and supposedly dies from his wounds. However, when the group returns after defeating the Pope, his body is gone. When they encounter Rommy for the last time on Mount Ayre, Lukius appears, injured but still alive. He uses magic to forcibly reveal Rommy's true identity as a Spot, enabling the group to kill her. He wishes to join them for the final battle, but Caius uses his "big brother" status to get him to stand down, as he is still injured.

At the end of the story, he has discarded his mask and appears to have taken a new leadership role in the Church.

Appearance and Personality[]

Lukius Bridges (ToAsteria)

Artwork for Tales of Asteria.

Lukius has birch hair reaching down his neck. He wears a white and black shirt, with a light blue belt, pelorous-turquoise pants, grey boots, and a white cape. To cover his face, Lukius wears a gold mask with three points, and blue lens. When he removes this, he reveals a face identical to Caius, including rock-colored eyes.

Lukius is extremely cold and pragmatic for most of the story. He is aware that his actions may be seen as morally reprehensible, but he has complete faith that the Pope will be able to save everyone in the end. He seems to suffer some self-loathing due to his Leymon heritage, which Caius pities him for.

Fighting Style[]

In battle, Lukius uses a uniquely designed staff called Rayleigh Storm. He specializes in casting Wind- and Lightning-elemental magic artes. Despite being half Leymon like Caius, Lukius never transforms, likely due to the stigma against Leymons, forcing him to suppress this power.

In Tales of the Rays, Lukius becomes a playable character. Here, he gains access to Water-elemental magic artes, as well as two strike artes.
