Lukas the Trickster

Space Marines that are versed in the art of Trolling exist, and Lukas is the Godfather of them all.

In a chapter known for its rebellious streak and tendency to stick a middle finger up at larger Imperial authority to get shit done, Lukas the Trickster of the Space Wolves (also called the Strifeson, the Laughing One, the Jackalwolf, and That Enormous Prick; the last by both enemies and lovers) stands out for his legendary example of these...traits. He is despised by half the Wolf Lords for his constant mooning them during council meetings but does he care? Nah, he sees it all as part of the fun. He has never made it out of the Blood Claw packs due to his perceived immaturity but there is no denying his skills are far beyond most Wolf Guards and then some.

He also has renown as a serial shagger amongst the womenfolk of Fenris; on one famed occasion, he famously once slept with a dozen women in one night. That might sound stupid, but Space Wolves recruit them relatively old, Fenris could be like some of Earth's historical societies where a boy became a man at age 13 (thus being able to start having sex then, if not slightly earlier) and the Space Wolves are famous for not becoming asexual with multiple Space Wolf characters still displaying sexual attraction to various women, so this could have happened at anytime. And probably did if the hints in the novel that bears his name are any indication. It's also worth remembering that it is never stated that the Astartes are sterile, they're just conditioned to ignore sexual impulses as distractions, but the Space Wolves don't seem to do it because they consider getting laid a lot to be a sign of manly warrior strength to boast and laugh about at the mess hall.

The only reason Logan Grimnar has not exiled him from the Chapter is because he recognizes that Lukas represents the rebellious nature of the Wolves and because for all of his antics, he still gets the job done and gets it done well. Also, the other half of the Wolf Lords think he's hilarious.

Since his induction he has shown his penchant for playing 'tricks' on others, although his victims are in little agreement over the humour of it. He locked an Inquisitorial Delegation in a grox breeding pen while the creatures were in heat (saucy) and spiked the drink of the Wolf Lord Hrothgar with some bloat-toad venom. These acts have led him to gain something of a cult following amongst the Blood Claws, as big an asshole as he is. Currently he is attached to Ragnar Blackmane's company, that being the only group of hot headed idiots capable of stomaching the crazy lout. It helps that Blackmane, who is still a Bloodclaw at heart, is one of the Wolf Lords who thinks Lukas is hilarious.

When he turns his tricks on the Imperium's enemies however they produce stunning results (perhaps the only reason the Wolf Lords have never kicked him out of the nearest airlock). He caused an Ork civil war with a series of faked transmissions; used a necrovirus on the cell of traitor Mechanicus adepts that made it in the first place; and caused a bunch of Word Bearers to land on thin ice, resulting in hundreds of traitor marine deaths, including the Chaos Lord (that alone would make any battle brother go down in history for grand efforts of trolling and earn a gold star from the Emperor).

His second finest dick move was using ancient tech to good effect during an Ork Waaagh. As the creatures attempted to conquer a planet, Lukas flicked the climate controls from 'normal' to 'chill motha' fuckas!'. When the great company arrived in force they found the orks were little more than ice statues and the temperature a pleasant reminder of home to them.

Lukas was only beaten once and by the mad Dark Eldar corsair Duke Sliscus, who removed one of Lukas's hearts as a parting gift and kicked him out an airlock (which the Wolf Lords had wet dreams about; if it wasn't for the fact that Sliscus was a mood-swinging Dark Eldar, you'd think he and Lukas would bond over their mutual rebellious streak and rampant philandering). Lukas though just laughed about it and had a stasis bomb put in place of his second heart. Should his primary heart every stop beating then....he will end up having the last laugh on his killer who will be frozen forever in his dying moment of glory.

Recently, Lukas had made his finest dick move: tricking Magnus the Red while looking at him in the eyes. Basically, he accompanied Njal Stormcaller and Arjac Rockfist to Prospero rescuing some Space Wolf legionares trapped inside a man-made Webway since the Razing of Prospero. Magnus caught him, first threaten Lukas, then tempted him to give up a Rune of Unlocking that would allow his complete take over of said man-made Webway and used it to empower him in real space. Lukas gave the thing up, only to reveal that he had never had the aforementioned Rune in hand before spirited away.

Also, it was revealed that Lukas is secretly afraid of the Wulfen curse.

Tabletop[edit]

Lukas is a Blood Claw with the stat block of a Wolf Guard Battle Leader, the only difference being his Leadership of eight, which any accompanied Blood Claw squad (and he can only join Blood Claws) will be forced to use. (But many of the issues with that can easily be averted by adding a Wolf Priest to watch over them, which can be quite viable considering they are a close combat unit)

Lukas the Trickster: 80 5 5 4 4 2 5 3 8 3+

Lukas has Acute senses and ATSKNF as he should, plus Counterattack and Independent Character. His special rules are Blood Claws Hero (only blood claws put up with his bullshit), Rebellious (forces his bloodclaw unit to use his leadership of 8 at all times, NEVER higher) and his famous Last Laugh which stasis bombs an enemy that kills Lukas in a challenge if you beat them on a D6 rolloff. Gear wise Lukas comes with a wolfclaw and a plasma pistol, power armor, and frag and krak grenades.

Note that this Last Laugh, his trademark, was once the bane of Titans everywhere, as he could single-handedly remove any Titan that accidentally stepped on him. As on 7E, it's now been knocked down to just being in challenges and even then if the Player beats the other guy in a roll-off. Yeah, kind of a weak laugh.

Trivia[edit]

Lukas is obviously based on the Norse God Loki, the God of Trickery and a good move in the right direction; less furry and more VIKINGS in space please, GW.
