Introduction

xxxxxWould be a misanthrope if he didn't find humanity so fascinating. Has a strong moral compass, really, it is just calibrated at right angles to most people's.

Description

xxxxxBlue-black hair is arranged in artfully tousled disarray to frame classically masculine features. Cheekbones are set high, brilliantly emerald-green eyes set deep and fringed with thick lashes, jaw strong, nose straight. His skin is tanned lightly, and without visible blemish. Just over six feet of height is filled out by an athletic physique, muscles well-defined without being overly bulky. He carries himself with an easy grace, and a confidence that, occasionally, borders on arrogance.

Reputation

xxxxxFor aficionados of the stage, known for headlining some Broadway roles both musical and non; has a small but ardent base of devotees among musical theatre nerds specifically, though he isn't particularly well known outside this crowd. For those who move in Extremely Wealthy/Powerful circles is somewhat quietly better-known -- around Hellfire Club types, known as a very quietly helpful Person Who Knows People. Always seems to have the right contacts and information to make business and social transactions go /just/ a little bit smoother. Has a steadily growing reputation in those same circles as being an uncannily good person to talk to to quietly fix problems.

History

xxxxxThe second of five children, largely by different fathers, born in Montreal though transplanted to New York during one of his mother's string of failed marriages. Home life was shitty. Left it around the beginning of his teenage years when his mutation developed.

He's since found his way into a number of roles -- both onstage and off. He has been enjoying moderate success on Broadway; to make ends meet in between landing theatre gigs he keeps a part-time position as a concierge at the Hellfire Club, though a decent chunk of his income comes from the sex work clients he's kept on.

Powers

xxxxxLucien will mess with your head.

Trivia
  • Recent Acting roles:
    • January - December, 2016: Had the headlining role in Pippin at the Music Box theatre.
    • August - November 2017: Starred in an limited run off-broadway production of Breakroom at the Vineyard Theatre, a new play dealing with a news team's decision to publish a whistleblower's story about government corruption, and the fallout that ensues.
    • October 2018-Current: Currently starring in a new musical, Lost at the Marquis Theatre, about the adventures of a young girl abducted to a fairyland. Is hard to recognize offstage, as the costuming for his character (only referred to as 'the faun' during the show itself though hardcore fans do know that the faun's name is Ibeonus) involves extremely heavy makeup and prosthetics. (Won Tony for Best Lead Actor - Musical in 2019; the show itself won several other technical awards as well. Getting tickets has been abruptly harder since the awards night, as it is often sold out long in advance -- though there is a preshow lottery.)
  • Due to his theatre career, has a decent number of easily googleable articles, interviews, etc. about him floating around. Some notable points that are either common knowledge among his fans or easy to pick up through a cursory google search:
    • Spent a while homeless as a teenager; devotes a good amount of time and energy these days to supporting homeless youth services in the city.
    • Speaks openly about his history in sex work while homeless/poor as well as his history with drug addiction; is a strong advocate of more widely available harm reduction services.
    • Known in the industry as kind of a ridiculous workaholic, impossibly organized, impeccably punctual, keeps a ridiculous schedule even for an actor.
    • Has a reputation among fans and crew for being fairly personable and engaged.
    • Has quietly sidestepped the question any time his relationship / love life (or lack thereof) has come up in an interview; he's an immaculately groomed Broadway actor living in the heart of Greenwich, though, so that hasn't stopped plenty of assumptions.
    • Though he has not made much notice of talking about this in interviews elsewhere, caught the attention of more observant fans (particularly those who are themselves neurodivergent) in what was almost an aside within a more in-depth piece in the runup to free Tonys, that focused on the extremely complex and elaborate costuming and set design for Lost (which ultimately won several technical awards for design.) In it he spoke to the adjustments and considerations that the crew had taken to accommodate an autistic lead actor in a field generally prone to a large degree of uncomfortable sensory input that actors are expected to tolerate.
  • The only obvious jewelry he typically wears is a plain black titanium ring.
  • Like his brother, is also a witch; is generally a lot more muted in his witchery than Matt, though.
