Lucas Montbarron or simply Lucas is one of the four playable characters included in Dungeon Siege 3. Unlike the rest, Lucas is the son of the Grand Master of the Legion, which makes him a direct descendant of the 10th Legion.
In Dungeon Siege 3, Lucass description reveals a small part of his history, as well as some of his fighting techniques.
Lucas Montbarron is the son of the former Grand Master of the Legion. He is the last of a noble and respected line. Raised in a series of safehouses by families loyal to his fathers memory, Lucas will not rest until the Legion is rebuilt, and his familys honor is restored.
Lucas is a skilled swordsman, and a master of two combat stances. He can fight with a sword and shield, which allows him to attack quickly, and interrupt and stun single targets. When outnumbered, he wields a massive two-handed sword. While slower to swing and less practical for one-on-one combat, he can use it to strike multiple foes and knock them back, making it an ideal weapon for crowd control.
