Lucky Veridian, or just Lucky is a green-furred zoomorphic feline who lives in the Autumnal Grove, a forest located on the Quadrasera Island, Somewhere off the coast of Ireland. He lives in the home of his childhood friend, Karis, and Karis's older sister, Sytha, trying to muster a "normal" life while dealing with unwanted magical powers, as a result of what he believes to be being cursed as a child. This "curse" left him with the ability to manipulate shadows, an ability he isn’t able to control out of the fear of hurting others, leading him to what he thinks is a lifetime of bad luck.
Lucky spent several years not belonging to any particular story or series, before he finally starred in his own game, Superstition, for The V² and Nintendo Switch. In the game, a band of powerful sorcerers known as the Omnis Clan. raid the island with the goal of ridding it of its current citizens and colonizing it for their own. When Lucky realizes these same sorcerers were the ones who cursed him all those years ago, he becomes determined to fight back, and ends up teaming up with Myortia, a sorceress who was once a member of the Omnis Clan.
Lucky, for only a few years, lived with his parents in the Autumnal Grove, but he hardly remembers them in the present. One fateful afternoon, a clan of strange sorcerers enact a raid on the Quadrasera Isle, in which they targeted an attack on Lucky and his parents. While the fate of his parents are currently unknown, Lucky escaped the attack alive and mostly unharmed physically, but was mistakenly inflicted with a curse of strange proportions by one of the mages. This curse gave Lucky the power to control shadows in a dark magic-like manner. This curse has remained within him for the remainder of his life, leading to struggles with other people—these struggles are why Lucky is convinced that, contrary to his name, he’s cursed with an endless bout of bad luck.
Following his escape, Lucky was alone in the forest, frightened and bewildered, before he ran into another young feline named Karis Nyjahh. Unaware of what’s happening to the green feline, Karis brought Lucky to the house of his parents, where, after figuring out what happened, Karis's parents took him in after being unable to track down his parents. While living with the Nyjaahs, Lucky attempted many times to gain control of his powers, but he failed to get a grasp on it, without someone else to guide him through it. Eventually, Lucky and Karis moved out of Karis's parents' house, and into the home of Karis's older sister Sytha, where they currently live. Lucky's curse still maintains, though he has gotten used to the difficulties the curse has brought.
Lucky is, generally speaking, soft-spoken and careful at his best, and a nervous wreck at worst. He’s not incredibly social around anyone besides Karis and Sytha, as he finds talking to strangers somewhat difficult due to his own nerves. He has trouble maintaining optimism during difficult situations, despite his attempts to not be a total cynic. He’s clumsy and not very coordinated, hence his lack of skill in combat prior to his first adventure. He also fears his own power, as, prior to Superstition, he isn’t able to control or restrain his powers, and he’s afraid of pushing people away or hurting them as a result. As a result of all of this, his self-worth and confidence are relatively low, though he doesn’t outwardly act like it, out of fear of bothering others with his own issues.
Powers & Abilities
Because of the curse that was inflicted on him as a child, Lucky wields erebokinesis, being able to manipulate shadows in combat, as a form of dark magic. Initially, Lucky is unskilled in his powers, as his fear of hurting others prevented him from ever using them, but, under Myortia's training, he learns several erebokinetic techniques: firing shadow projectiles, and “teleporting” in and out of shadows, among other abilities. Thanks to her training, he becomes more well-versed in combat. Lucky is also capable of scratching enemies with his claws, as he isn’t declawed.
Lucky and Karis have been practically inseparable ever since they first encountered each-other as children: some outsiders assumed the two were family at times. Karis has grown to understand Lucky's anxieties and pessimistic tendencies over time, and takes good care of his friend, often acting as his emotional support. Lucky, on the other hand, doesn't care about anyone else like he does about Karis, and appreciates that he has continued to support him his entire life.
Lucky slowly developed romantic interest in Karis as he got older, though he has a hard time accepting these feelings, because he has already convinced himself that being in a relationship with anyone would be detrimental to them, especially with Karis. As such, he keeps this crush on the down low, though he confides his feelings in Karis's sister, Sytha.
Despite not being nearly as close as Karis is to Lucky, he has grown to become comfortable around Sytha as he grew older and, eventually, moved into her home with Karis. She treats Lucky the same way she treats Karis–as a little brother–and, as a result, she's formulated a familial bond with him. He often goes to her for advice, and often confides in her how he feels about Karis, because, according to her, "she knew Lucky had a crush on him before he did".
- The name Lucky originally came from one of Lucky's personality traits in his original conception, as he was formally and ironically an unlucky character. The trait was initially dropped before being brought back to the character in June 2016, though the bad luck is no longer Lucky's primary character trait.
- Lucky was also the name of a real-life kitten that the creator helped take care of after it was injured in 2010, many years before Lucky's character came to be; the kitten, sadly, died due to it's injuries after about two weeks.
- It is heavily implied that Lucky suffers from some kind of anxiety disorder, and, in Superstition, it’s outright revealed by Lucky himself halfway through the story.
