Lucia is a character in the Faux Paradise: The 77th Hunger Games, where she serves as a secondary protagonist in the games. She was a tribute from District 3, serving as the smarts of the alliance. She was a intelligent, courageous tribute, and one of the smartest tributes in the arena. She participated in the 77th Hunger Games, where she died on the 7th day to Tropical Wolves.
Faux Paradise: The 77th Hunger GamesEdit
Lucia first appears entering the elevator, her appearance mesmerizing Denshi Mikisa. She later joined the Capitol's Bane alliance. The next day in training, Cora convinced Denshi to talk to Lucia. Although she was nervous and socially awkward, Lucia eventually grew comfortable around Denshi, the two forming a strong bond over the course of the games. During her private training session, Lucia gained a score of 6 and odds of 19-1.
During her interview, Lucia admits her feelings for a certain someone, admitting that she has a crush on another tribute in the games.
Lucia was a contributor in the bloodbath, joining Hamaji and company in waiting for the careers and loners to tire each other out. She isn't mentioned until near the end of the bloodbath, where she and Sainaru Sutoma are ambushed by JaKhel. When her allies show up, Lucia explains the situation, aiming a crossbow at the hostile JaKhel. When ordered to fire on the boy, Sainaru is hit instead, being tossed into the path of the bolt by JaKhel.
The First NightEdit
While exploring the resort with Naida Bank, Lucia finds a shack containing dive gear.
Trip to the DepthsEdit
Lucia converses with Cora on the second day, the two intelligent girls talking about the potential of the two District 9 tributes allying. Lucia disagrees with the idea, saying the two tributes were never close enough. She tells Cora to let Hamaji worry about it, since he was the leader. When asked about her name by Cora, Lucia tells Cora her name, the latter embarrassed at the fact of not knowing before hand. During breakfast, Naida proposes the idea of using the dive equipment from the previous night to explore below the ocean. Hamaji ends up choosing Lucia to go along with him and Naida on the trip. She agrees, although grows very anxious about the expedition. She gets a hug from Denshi, who tells Lucia to be careful, the two's love growing more prominent.
Lucia has Naida style her hair to suit being underwater better, and does the same to Naida, both girls rocking fishtail braids. Hamaji asks if their hair styling session is over, and with that, the three tributes gear up and go out to sea. The boy from 11 ferries them out into the middle of the ocean, where Lucia dives in, going underwater. AFter three hours of diving, Hamaji decides to search a galleon, Lucia saying the ship had muskets in it. Hamaji leads the trio to a pirate ship, where they soon come under attack.
A group of bull sharks attack the group. Lucia's air tank is ripped off her back and destroyed, forcing her to hold her breath. She survives the attack, regrouping with Naida and Hamaji in an air pocket of the sunken ship. Naida offers Lucia her air tank, stating she could hold her breath longer, though Lucia declines, not wanting to take Naida's only source of oxygen. With Hamaji's orders though, Lucia reluctantly takes Naida's air tank, hoping the best for Naida.
Rescue of the BaneEdit
Lucia and company return from the diving trip, to discover their allies being held hostage by the careers. She then formulates a plan to load the muskets, using them to eliminate and scare off the enemy tributes. Her plan works, and the Capitol's Bane are rescued.
Lucia stays behind with the District 11 Male to guard the resort while the rest of the Capitol's Bane travel to the lesser island to eliminate the career alliance. Due to the treacherous nature of the 11 male though, he alerts the careers of the oncoming attack, slipping roofies into Lucia's drink, knocking her out cold.
Lucia is then tied up to a chair on the beach, being bait for the Capitol's Bane to try and rescue her. When she awakens, she notices JaKhel fighting Aquarius and Jacqueline. One of JaKhel's blows smashes the chair that holds Lucia, allowing her to cut herself free. She dives under the water to avoid Thalia's arrows, swimming all the way back to the volcano island, where her allies are happy to see her.
Reuniting with DenshiEdit
Denshi wraps the soaking Lucia up in a towel, as the alliance sits by a warm fire. Lucia tells her allies about the 11 male's betrayal, telling them about the roofie incident. Tired from her swim, Lucia begins to go to bed, but upon Denshi's remark about the wolves, Lucia offers Denshi to sleep with her, the two no doubt doing sexual things that night.
Finding a Good TreeEdit
Wanting to take back the resort, Lucia and her allies search the jungle for a good tree to carve a canoe out of. They do find one, Cora cutting it down with her chainsaw. The tree is quiet heavy though, Lucia struggling with it, as the whole alliance begins to move the large wood to begin carving.
After Denshi successfully makes a canoe, the island's volcano begins to erupt, drawing the wolf mutts out of the jungle and towards the shore. The Capitol's bane fight off the wolves, trying to get their canoe into the water and to safety. Lucia saves Naida from a wolf, before Lucia herself is knocked down by another wolf. Denshi throws it off her, as the two fight together.
Before Lucia and Denshi can board the boat though, a strong current drags it away, separating them from their allies. Lucia embraces Denshi one last time, telling him they'd be together forever. The two fight for a long time against the wolf horde, though both are eventually overwhelmed and killed by the creatures.
Lucia is mentioned by Hamaji as he attacks Thalia, stating the names of every ally he had that was killed by the careers in some way, direct or indirect.
Lucia is a smart, intelligent girl who is quick to think of plans no one else considers. Although she was timid and nervous at the beginning, she grew into a brave, fierce girl who grew very confident in her own abilities. She was shown to be loving to Denshi, wanting to do anything she could to make sure Denshi was happy. In her final moments, Lucia refused to leave Denshi's side, fighting until she died.
