Soft-spoken, shy, and quiet overall. People come to her for advice because she is a very good listener and never interrupts. Always seems to be dreaming, be it day or night, awake or asleep. Does not easily trust people, but when she does she stays loyal to them through thick and thin.
Nyx was visiting New York and observing mortals one night. She came upon a drunk man sleeping in the streets, and immediately felt pity for him. He was in need of love, and Nyx decided to help him by pretending that she loved him. He fell in love with the Goddess immediately, and she went along with it to make him happy. Eventually, she bore a child for him. This, she decided, was her time to leave. After Lucille was born, Nyx disappeared from the mortal world, hoping that the man would be comforted by their child. Unfortunately, he was heartbroken and did not care about Lucille. He placed her on the doorsteps of a random house and vanished from the world.
Lucille was raised by the people who found her on the doorsteps, Mr. and Mrs. Rhodes. The Rhodes started out fostering her before finally adopting her. They loved her very much and let her live an utterly normal life. But Lucille could never really love Mrs. Rhodes the way that a daughter should love her mother. It's because Lucille felt that Mrs. Rhodes wasn't her real mother, and that the real one was out there in the world, alive. Still, Lucille's life was utterly plain, almost boring. She was privileged enough to go to one of the top schools in New York. Mrs. Rhodes made her take piano and singing lessons, and Mr. Rhodes always took her to baseball games. Lucille's group of friends was small, but tight; two best friends. Lucille struggled in school because of her ADHD and dyslexia; for this reason, the teachers were usually irritated with her, but not much more irritated than they were by the average student. This is the perfect word to describe her early life; average.
Everything changed one day, when thirteen year old Lucille was home alone and would be for a few hours. Normally, her friends would be over, but they stayed after school for detention. On said day, a Hellhound entered the house and tore everything apart searching for her. Lucille was in the kitchen when the Hellhound got inside. Afraid it was a robber, phoneless Lucille quickly searched the drawers for a knife. In the butter knife drawer, there was a dagger. A celestial bronze dagger, a gift from Nyx. It had been in the blankets that were wrapped around baby Lucille when she was on the doorsteps. Mr. Rhodes found it and to him, it was a butter knife (Mist). He kept it out of interest, as a novelty. It was in the back of the drawer, collecting dust, having never been used. Lucille had no time to think about the fact that there was a dagger in her drawer. A few seconds later, the Hellhound knocked down the kitchen door and pounced. In all the panic, Lucille hadn't really noticed its otherworldly appearance and simply thought that there was a giant, vicious dog that wanted to eat her. Obviously, her instinct was to dodge it. Barely moving in time, Lucille jumped out of the way. The Hellhound landed on the spot where Lucille had been only moments before. It seemed to have hit its head on a cabinet, and seemed off-balance. Lucille didn't even think. She raised her dagger and charged from its side/behind. The dagger went square into the Hellhound's stomach. The snarling beast turned around but was already extremely weak from the deep stab wound. In what seemed like a heartbeat, Lucille had the dagger pulled from its stomach and again stabbed just as the Hellhound's paw was coming down on Lucille's face. The Hellhound was now just dust.
A satyr that Lucille vaguely recognized as a boy from school charged into the room almost 30 seconds later and thanked her for killing the Hellhound. He introduced himself as Ivan and briefly summarized Camp Half-Blood and the world that comes with it. Lucille had to quickly decide that she must go to this camp and hope she was not losing her mind. They had no time to wait for her parents to come home. Even if they did, Mr. and Mrs. Rhodes would never let her leave. Lucille knew that the house looked like a crime scene and it must remain this way. If they thought she was dead, or gone, they would not ever have to be involved in this or get hurt. It was a stupid plan, but it was the only option. Ivan and Lucille left the house and drove to the camp as quickly as possible.
- Children of Nyx have the ability to conjure weapon out of pure shadows which can be used for combat; however, only one weapon can be conjured at a time and it cannot be bigger than the one who conjured it. This can also be used for other non-combative objects, but within reason, something might be shaped like an iPod, but as shadows do not have any working parts and source of electricity, such as batteries, they would not actually play music.
- Children of Nyx have the ability to conjure a rope of shadows which are bound around an unsuspecting victim; the ropes remain on the person for a short time before vanishing.
- Children of Nyx have the ability to conjure a cloak of pure shadows which will blunt most attacks but slow the movement of the conjurer.
- Children of Nyx can bend shadows around them, concealing them for a short time.
- Children of Nyx are innately strong during the night.
- Children of Nyx can see perfectly in the night as if it were day.
- Children of Nyx have the ability to Shadow Travel, a sort of teleportation; the further the distance, the more is energy drained.
- Children of Nyx tend to prefer the dark.
