Lucas (formerly known as Prince Lucas Balmoral) is the main bartender of The Algate Arms, an East London pub that functions as a gateway to the rest of the world. Before 1997 Lucas was Prince of Winter and Heir Presumptive to his guardian, King Albert Balmoral. He was once engaged to Princess Margaret. It is heavily implied that Lucas, like his fellow Punished, cannot leave his place of punishment.

History[]

Lucas claims that he was once a fairly influential member of Imperial society, despite his American heritage. He knew he would never be able to rise above a certain point because he was American and chose a comfortable niche as the protege and close friend of the Duke of Paths, Lord Austin Derleth. When Lord Austin died (supposedly at the hands of the Sun Banishers, according to Lucas) Lucas inherited the Algate (his "birthright" as he called it).

Lucas became one of the mysterious "Punished" after he refused to perform some action or favor for some group or individual within the Empire. He is barred (by Pledge it seems) from talking about the details of his punishment.
