A boy of twelve years who can be accurately described as someone dealing with an onset of Antisocial Personality Disorder.

Lucas never minded following or being dragged around by his childhood friend, mostly because he never had anything else to do and Barry was something of a treasure to him, but he didn't like that the other boy always assumed he'd join him in doing stupid things. Oh no, when it came to attempt any plan that could cause him personal harm, Lucas always willfully stayed on the side and watched as Barry hurt himself doing whatever it was. While his friend would get angry at him for being so slow, Lucas always enjoyed these moments of stupidity.

Though Lucas knew Barry's "change of heart" and "maturity" came from the fact he wanted to see what type he'd get so he could get the advantageous one, the new Trainer took Chimchar for its energy and lithe body. Not because it reminded him of Barry or anything. That first battle they had sent a tremor to his heart though, and it was then on that Lucas knew that the only way he could laugh now was at this opponent's face. Because it was exciting! It was a thrill! It was--

Powerful.

He tends not to listen to others, particularly if they're lecturing him or instructing him on something that seems simple like how to ride a bike or run with shoes, and has a habit of joking around. Do you love Pokémon? No, but really yes. More accurately he loves the power Pokémon have and sought to increase it tenfold and become not the toughest, not the best, but the most undeniably unbeatable Trainer in the world.

This ambitious arrogance causes him to underestimate his opponents and overestimate himself, leading to quite a few losses he'll never accept. When Lucas loses, he doesn't blame himself but blames those around him - with the exception of his Pokémon, who he sees as merely creatures that have a set strength and if they're weak they're weak if they're strong they're strong. So it isn't their fault. This blame turns to a rage which can power one of two things: hatred, or the will to over level his Pokémon in order to crush his foe ruthlessly.

He hasn't lost once to Barry.

But he'd be lying if he said that his best friend didn't challenge him every step of the way.

While Lucas can appreciate strength, he can't accept using Pokémon in a way that hurts them. With Team Galactic's insistence of using the three Lake Guardians to the point of paining them, he felt an anger that would've let him kill Cyrus if he didn't want to end up like him. It translates pretty well to his Pokémon, Nala (his Luxray) in particular, and their ruthlessness is to be feared. Because they can actually kill. When Cyrus had the balls to give him a Master Ball, a device that could capture without fail, the first thing Lucas did was grudgingly stuff it away to dispose of properly later.

The Distortion World, with its peaceful eeriness, was a nice dumping spot.

Lucas doesn't believe in capturing legendaries because as powerful as they are they maintain a balance and to throw off that balance would create another incident he'd have to clean up. He hates getting into other people's business and keeps pretty much to himself in that regard. If you're looking sad but say nothing's wrong, he won't bother with it anymore. He's kind of insensitive. Unless you're Barry or Dawn. They're important to him, one being his best friend and both the other being his crush.

Besides, it's funner to battle and beat down against Gods than to own them.
