…well, at least I get to show off my OCs again. First up is Luca, my “Kid Icarus: Uprising” OC.
For his origin, all I can come up with is that he’s a new angel (whose last memories of his mortal life involved screaming and begging for “dad” to “stop hitting him”), and Palutena assigns Pit to take him under his wing (figuratively speaking) and help him get stronger and braver.
Personality-wise, unlike the other talkative and snarky characters (which is…the entire cast, really), Luca is more shy and sensitive, and has trouble understanding sarcasm or rhetorical questions, and is afraid of angering or even ticking off anyone with words. Nonetheless, he proves himself to be an invaluable ally to Pit on the battlefield. In short: fighting monsters is a piece of cake while socializing with others is VERY challenging.
Luca favors the Violet Palm due to its colorful show and high homing capability (he prefers fighting away from enemies rather than get up-and-close to them).
In his days off from training, Luca likes to do some drawing. He’s recently acquired something called an “iPad”, which he then draws using an “Apple Pencil” and a program called “Procreate”…all of which won’t exist on Earth for the next several thousand years due to mankind being less advanced with technology.
Miraculously, he has managed to charm Amazon Pandora with his own kindness and giving her the benefit of the doubt, especially after Hades’ death that Pandora has become more “neutral” than “evil” after regaining her former body and her rage at Palutena has lessened. Moreso, he even taught her how to have “fun” that didn’t involve any sort of bloodshed. (Similar to Fluttershy and Discord from “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic”)
