Bio:

Ideals:

  • Be good to the Guild and the Guild will be good to you. Mess with the Guild and I’ll mess with your innards.
  • Half the reward is the satisfaction of a job done right (but take my fair share and I’ll crowbar it out of you)
  • If you’re in, you’re in. Don’t care much for high and mighty dreams, but I’ll always usually have my mate’s back.

Flaws:

  • If you’re not in, you’re out. And if you’re out, don’t care much who you are: you’re fair game.
  • I like a good fight as much as the next one, but I like living too. There are precious few things I’d really risk my life for and most of them are me myself and I

Background:

  • The second and only surviving child of a dockworker and a seamstress (No, really, an actual seamstress.).
  • Started working for the Thieves Guild at the age of 11 to pay off his mothers debts, Luca has never really known anything else. Graduating from picking pockets and playing on the sympathies of strangers, he usually works as a doorman, general enforcer or guide through Catarina’s sprawling undercity but has been known to dabble in short term cons and fleecing the gambling scene.
  • Positive relationship with the Thieves Guild. Barring the ‘incident’ with the dwarves Luca has proven loyal, broadly sensible and reliable (at least in comparison to certain others…). Good help can be hard to come by.
  • Negative relationship with two dwarvern families. Interrupted a ‘stag do’/cultural tradition due to a misunderstanding (despite, technically, doing his job…) that resulted in the dissolution of a profitable marriage arrangement. One way or another, that embarrassment won’t happen again…
  • Negative relationship with a Guard Captain, Arturo Favero. Childhood friend who used to work well with Luca (BWIM: was very good at pointedly not being anywhere near) until he got name-dropped as an alibi for a big heist which put an end to his rapid rise through the ranks and grounded him with unrewarding grunt work for the next few years.
  • Ran a small gambling con for a while with ’Cici as the attractive drapee. Ended after she got bored.
  • Tutor/sponsor/leash for Screech following the dwarvern incident to get him off the front of house. Definitely not a punishment of course, just a temporary reassignment ’til it all blows over.
