Shing Jea Island town and outposts:
- "The name is Lukas of House Vasburg, you seem like a pretty good sort. Why don't you make sure to stay close to me, and you'll learn what it takes to become a legend. That's right, I don't intend to become a mere hero, but truly legendary. Epic, you might say. The crux of the matter, of course, is not just accomplishing your goals but accomplishing them in true style. I will become the greatest of artists and the battlefield will be my canvas. Now, what is it you wanted?"
- "Who wouldn't require the services of a hero such as me? There was little else to do on Shing Jea Island, so I figured I would come here."
- "Can you believe that Danika still refuses to notice me? You would have thought I could get her attention after hiring those minstrels. What was that? You think I've made a mistake? Yes of course! The minstrels were rather droll of me, I think it's time to commission a statue~ or perhaps the writing of a play recounting my great deeds! It's hard to decide, perhaps I'll do both. My thanks for the advice, did you need something?"
- "Can I ask a favor, <player name>? Danika seems to have a lot of respect for you. I still don't understand why she hasn't fallen for me. Do you think you could put in a good word for me? Not that I need it, of course, but every little bit helps."
Shing Jea Island towns and outposts:
- "Who would like to fight by the side of the greatest warrior the world has ever known? That's right don't be intimidated by my prowess!" [sic]
- "You there! You look like a capable sort, invite me to go with you and you too can take part in forging my legend!"
Shing Jea Island:
- "If only Danika were here to see me. In the entire world, only she is truly worthy of me."
- "It is an honor to fight by my side."
- "It's a shame they let Luxons into the monastery. Of course they fight fairly well, but no style at all."
- "You should see how they treat me back home. I don't really like to brag about it, but I am something of a hero. People know me."
- "Sometimes when I go into battle I hear music. Of course I paid a lot to commission those songs about me so it is a good thing that the music is so fetching, it sticks in one's head. A true testament to the subject matter!"
- "We've been through a lot, haven't we? It is times like these that make my soul reflect on courage and loyalty, the sort of bond that develops only between those who have shed blood together. A warrior could never ask for more stalwart followers that I have found in all of you."
- "With my homeland in peril and crying out for a hero to save the day, what else could I do but return?"
- "Another victory for me!"
- "I make everything look so effortless."
- "I'm really left handed!"
- "Poorly done! Let me show you how to fight with some style!"
- "Saints of old guide my sword; if I should fall then guide my soul!" (same as Erys, possibly a House Vasburg battle cry)
- "Sometimes I amaze even myself!"
- "That was a mightily struck blow, if I do say so myself."
- "The poets will write epics about this day!"
- "You will remember this as the day you were defeated by Lukas Vasburg."
- Lukas appears to be wielding a Platinum Blade and a Gothic Defender.
- He wears Warrior Kurzick armor.
