- "Snap out of it, trooper! You've got a job to do!"
- ―Dessel to Lucia
Lucia was a female junior trooper who fought for the Brotherhood of Darkness during the New Sith Wars against the Galactic Republic. Lucia served in the Gloom Walkers under the command of Lieutenant Ulabore, and by the Battle of Phaseera in 1,002 BBY had seen relatively little combat but was still recognized as one of the best shots in the unit and served as a sniper in battle. During the Battle of Phaseera, Sergeant Dessel, one of the troopers in the Gloom Walkers, mutinied and took over the unit. Lucia served by his side in the battle, and witnessed Dessel kill a large amount of Republic soldiers with incredible speed and precision. After they returned victorious, Dessel was taken away to be court-martialed for mutiny, despite Lucia's attempts to defend him.
- "I want you to think about this very carefully now, trooper. How fast do you think you could take them out from here?
I…I don't think I could, Sarge. Not all of them. Not from this angle. I could get a line on the first one, but as soon as he goes down, I doubt the others will stand still long enough for me to take aim. They'll probably duck down in the flatbed for cover. And even if I take the gunners out, there's half a dozen more soldiers on that roof who would jump in to take their places. I can't drop nine targets that fast by myself, Sarge. Nobody can."
- ―Dessel and Lucia
Lucia served in the Brotherhood of Darkness army during the New Sith Wars against the Galactic Republic, in the years leading up to the Seventh Battle of Ruusan. Lucia was in the Gloom Walkers unit, commanded by Lieutenant Ulabore and served as a junior officer. In 1,002 BBY, Lucia and the Gloom Walkers served in the Battle of Phaseera, an effort to capture the Republic manufacturing world of Phaseera. At that time, Lucia had seen little action, but was already regarded as one of the best shots in the unit and served as a sniper in combat. The Gloom Walkers were tasked with taking out a Republic outpost which was overlooking a valley that led to the Republic base camp in Phaseera's capital city, preventing the Brotherhood army from moving through the valley during the daytime without being spotted and their presence alerted to the Republic soldiers in the camp. In addition, the Republic had three flatbed gunships that could inflict massive casualties from the sky.
Before the battle began, the Gloom Walkers stayed at a makeshift camp in the jungle. Lieutenant Ulabore eventually received the orders to move out from the Brotherhood commanders and Lucia was sent to tell the rest of the troopers to assemble. However, when Ulabore told the Gloom Walkers that they were to attack the outpost in one hour, the Gloom Walkers objected, stating that it was a suicide mission due to the gunships. When Ulabore refused to listen, his second-in-command, Sergeant Dessel, mutinied by knocking Ulabore out and taking command. The Gloom Walkers waited until nightfall to strike and then moved through the jungle, split into four squads and encircled the outpost, with each squad using interference boxes to jam all transmissions within the perimeter. Lucia was in Dessel's squad, and when Dessel saw that the crews of the now-grounded gunships were still there, he asked Lucia if she could snipe them. Lucia answered in the negative, stating that no one could kill that amount of people that fast. Frustrated and acting on impulse, Dessel attacked the crews by himself, killing several before being blinded by a flash canister. Miraculously, Dessel seemed to retain his sight even after the detonation of the flash canister, and went on to kill the rest of the Republic soldiers with incredible speed and precision. Lucia was shocked after seeing this display, and stared with her mouth agape for a moment before continuing the fight for the outpost.
Three hours later, the Gloom Walkers had succeeded in taking the outpost, with nine casualties. With the outpost eliminated, the main Brotherhood army was well on their way to surprise-attacking the Republic base camp. Lucia and the rest of the Gloom Walkers, save a small squad led by Senior Trooper Adanar which was tasked in holding the outpost, returned to their jungle camp to find an awake Ulabore surrounded by several Sith enforcers. Dessel was placed in shackles, and told by Ulabore that he was going to be court-martialed. Although Lucia tried to defend Dessel, she could only watch as he was taken away by the armed enforcers. However, the court-martial never occurred. Word spread of Dessel's remarkable shooting, and he was taken to Korriban to train in the dark side of the Force. Dessel would eventually become Darth Bane, one of the most important and influential Dark Lords of the Sith in galactic history.
Personality and traits
- "That madness saved our lives!"
- ―Lucia, after Ulabore's Sith enforcers arrested Dessel
Lucia was one of the youngest members of the Gloom Walkers, and by the Battle of Phaseera had seen only limited amounts of combat in the New Sith Wars. Despite this, she was recognized as one of the best shots in the unit, and carried a TC-17 sniper rifle into battle. She greatly respected Dessel, and even tried to convince Lieutenant Ulabore not to have the Sith enforcers arrest him for mutiny. When she saw Dessel's remarkable display of shooting during the Battle of Phaseera, she was shocked by his precision and had to be told by Dessel to snap out of it.
