Character Information

Name: Luke fon Fabre
Canon: Tales of the Abyss
Canon Point: Just after the destruction of Akzeriuth
Age: 18

History: Luke’s Aselia wiki entry and the general Tales of the Abyss section of the wiki.

Personality: ‘Obnoxious brat’ is probably the best way to describe Luke, in a few words. He’s spoiled, whiny, and generally annoying to be around. Also a member of nobility, which gives him the sense that he’s more important than most anyone he interacts with outside of his family, up to and including other members of nobility.

Much of his spoiled nature results from his upbringing. Luke’s life has been a fairly easy one, where he hasn‘t had to worry about whether he had food or money, and has servants to tend to him. Combine this with what is essentially 7 years of house arrest with no one but his family and servants to interact with, you get a guy with a skewed sense of importance and the impression that he can do what he wants. Also terrible social skills. He’s learned that this isn’t the case outside of his home, but it hasn’t really stopped him from reacting badly when things don’t go his way. If allowed to, he’s likely to yell at whatever is bothering him, or if he’s particularly angry, he’ll throw or kick things. He’s also likely to react this way if he or thinks he’s being ignored or doesn’t understand something.

Which is actually a lot, as Luke is ignorant of many things most people his age consider common knowledge and doesn’t seem to have much of a drive to learn those things. In fact, his view of the world is much like a child’s--after being kept isolated at home for 7 years, everything is new and needs to be examined, questioned, or both.

Boredom comes easily to Luke, as does impatience, and if something fails to hold his interest for more than a few minutes at a time, he’s very likely to stop caring about it. Or at least deem it stupid or a waste of time and then begrudgingly attempt to give a damn. On the other hand, if he does express interest in something, he’ll stubbornly focus on just that thing and try to ignore anything (and anyone) else. This is part of the reason for his ignorance--if a task is too hard or tedious, he’s far less likely to do it than simpler or more rewarding tasks, so there’s a lot of things he hasn’t learned simply because he hasn’t taken the time or effort to try to learn them.

Relatedly, Luke also enjoys being the center of attention. As mentioned up above, he has a skewed sense of importance, and is often not afraid to let everyone else know. He wants to be right, to be noticed, to be looked up to, and he needs these things to be affirmed frequently. He dislikes the people who scold or belittle him, though he’s also not too fond of those who aren’t sincere in their praise.

At least when he notices they aren’t being sincere. Luke is not the greatest at reading people to begin with, and when coupled with his desire to be important, he has the tendency to vastly misjudge what people around him actually think and feel about him. If someone looks and sounds sincere enough, he’s very likely to trust them, and if they don’t, he’s immediately suspicious. This makes him somewhat easy to manipulate.

Luke is extremely averse to killing and bloodshed, especially when people are involved. He’s not a pacificist by any definition; he’s trained to wield a sword and is a decent fighter, but balks at the idea of killing human beings and even non-humans in some cases, especially if they’re not hostile. He has a minor breakdown after killing a person in self-defense and prior to that, feels sick after destroying the eggs in a monster’s nest. As of his canon point, he’s just realized that he’s indirectly responsible for the deaths of several thousand people and is more than slightly freaked out about it. Luke also seems not to mind helping out people who seem to need it, though in most of these cases, he'll help but either complain the whole time or otherwise find some way to act like he really doesn't want to do it.

A trait that’s somewhat apparent at the beginning but becomes more apparent later in canon is Luke’s inability to do things in moderation. Because of his lack of worldly experience and social skills, he sometimes has a hard time coming up with the proper solution to a particular problem--he can come up with a solution all right, but they’re very likely to be too extreme or not good enough--and as a result, can get frustrated when he fails to fix something because he didn't go about it in the ‘right way'.

This is most apparent after he decides to change his behavior. He decides that he wants to help people instead of hurt them or push them away, but ultimately decides to try to help everyone everywhere with everything. Which isn't possible for one person to do, and he has to be told that he can't do that and shouldn't try to hard, lest he end up stretching himself too thin.

Abilities: Most of Luke’s skills lie in the ability to swing a blade around. He’s been taught for years the art of swordfighting and his style is hard-hitting but slow. It also includes punches and dropkicks, as well as his world’s answer to elemental magic, elemental ’fonons’.

He can sort of cook and his only other claim to fame is being really good at hide-and-seek despite having bright red hair.

Well, if you don’t count the ability to trigger a hyperresonance. Simply put, hyperresonance is a relatively rare phenomenon wherein matter can be destroyed (or formed) at an atomic level. Atomic Dissociation is a good way to describe it. It normally requires two people with the ability to utilize the element (fonon) of Sound working together, but Luke can do it by himself, channeling the power through his hands. However, he knows pretty much nothing about it aside from the fact that he’s capable of it, so his control over it is basically nil--something that’s both good and bad.

Strengths: Quick learner, jerk on the outside but squishy on the inside, physically strong, determined (when he wants to be), forceful

Weaknesses: Spoiled, arrogant, childish, easily manipulated, tends to freeze in dangerous situations

God/Shinki: Shinki

Why?: He could stand to be knocked down a few notches. Besides, he’d be happier not remembering some things that have happened in his life.

Cause Of Death: Falls into the Qliphoth

Vessel: Giant sword

Name Location: Back of left hand

Power: Disintegration. Sometimes if you use him to hit things, they turn to dust.

Writing Sample

Sample: Tokyo was really, really big. Not nearly as big as--well, to be honest, he wasn’t really sure. He’d seen big cities before, hadn’t he? For some reason, he couldn’t imagine that when he was alive, he hadn’t at least once been to a large urban area...though the thought didn’t make Tokyo seem any more familiar. Or less crowded. Being relatively unseen seemed to make it that much more difficult to make it through the crowds on the sidewalk.

Luke wondered how he’d fare if he just decided to walk in the street instead of on the sidewalk. He was already dead, could he die again? Would the cars simply pass through him? Not that he was about to risk his second chance, but the thought still lingered, even as a man walking the opposite direction bumped against him and mumbled an apology. That meant Luke still existed in some physical sense.

“Being dead should come with better instructions. ‘Congratulations, you died, now you belong to a total stranger!’ Ugh. This second chance sucks. Oh sweet! Thanks.”

It wasn’t reallynecessary to thank the guy running the food cart. After all, he didn’t even acknowledge that Luke had even swiped a skewer of meat as he’d passed by, let alone that the shinki was even there. Surely that one skewer wouldn’t be missed.
