Lucas, his twin brother Claus, their mother Hinawa, and father Flint visited Hinawa's grandparent Alec in Tazmily Village. While exploring the outskirts of the village with his brother and mother, the Sunshine Forest was set ablaze. As they made their escape from the flames, a Dragos that had so far been friendly with Lucas and Claus attacked them and killed Hinawa. The twin brothers then fell into a nearby river and were later rescued by some of the Tazmily villagers. Lucas, traumatized by the events, shut out those around him, while Claus became enraged and went out into the mountains armed with a knife to find and kill the Dragos, he would not come back.
Flint distraught by the loss of his wife and a son, became distant to Lucas in the years following the incident and sought to find either of their bodies in the mountain. One day Lucas would find himself and a few other members of the village surrounded by pigmask tanks. Even after defeating them, the army would sweep into the village, and develop the village into a full urban town, influencing the townies to become greedier reshaping the island's environment.
Years later, Lucas would meet a Magypsy that would teach him how to use Psychic powers while on his way to meet a stage bassist he had heard off. He would also bump into Kumatora, another psychic user he met years earlier when he first faced the pigmasks. The two realized they might have now gathered enough power to face the invading army and push them back. Soon the mysterious bassist Duster would also lend his specialties to aid the town.
Lucas was originally going to be available in Super Smash Bros Melee, but ultimately it would be Ness taking the spot in the roster. Although not as beloved and played as Ness, Lucas is still a fierce fighter and generally considered a good pick in Super Smash Bros Ultimate thanks to its nearly best in the game edge guard and high damage output when played competitively. The core weaknesses of Lucas lie in his predictability. However, a good player should mix up their play enough to avoid facing opponents at unfavorable distances for Lucas.
