    Magnificent Bastard 
Write a Magnificent Bastard

Intro:

Who is Lapis?

Lapis is the Blue Rose, a Legacy Character who acts as a Phantom Thief that steals from corrupt individuals, only to seemingly return what she takes. In reality, she has a Master Forger make replicas of the stolen goods (who happens to be the previous Blue Rose) which she places. This is because the objects that she steals originally belonged to others who can't afford to legally get them back. She uses French words like "non", "adieu", and "au revoir". Her decision to become a Phantom Thief happened because her parents were corrupt and greedy people who auction stolen goods as a business, making them the exact kinds of people that she'd target. Lapis also lives a double life as an opera singer who had an entire event where she sent a Calling Card saying the Blue Rose would kidnap her (since no one in the event knows her Secret Identity).

Is she Magnificent?

You better believe she is. She isn't even implied to have failed a single heist in the past, and even when she's seemingly cornered, Lapis escapes with her treasure. In her adventurer story, she kidnaps an innocent girl who's the key to unlocking an ancient weapon that attacks her and the main characters, The Hero Euden and The Big Guy Ranzal. They team up to defeat the weapon, and get back to the man who was going to use the kidnapped girl to take and sell the weapon. Lapis uses her skills to disguise Euden as the girl, getting incriminating evidence out of the man and arresting him. The story ends with Euden and Lapis on friendly terms, with the latter saying he can call her anytime.

Is he a Bitch? Too much?

Lapis is a thief, and her heists have made her a wanted criminal. At the end of the story, when Euden asks her to turn herself in, she refuses and leaves with a smoke bomb. Her crimes have caused the current owners of the stolen goods to panic in fear of being screwed over due to their businesses being seemingly endangered. The fact the she was given the option to turn herself in means someone out there doesn't approve of her actions. She's also opposed the heroes at least once in her life.

Any Mitigating Factors?

While you could argue that she's ultimately harmless, a criminal is still a criminal, and she acknowledges that doing things the lawful way won't yield results, so she admits to being shady and unlawful, while no less successful and stylish.

Final Verdict

Easy keeper here. Beautiful, smart, and a Master of Disguise, Lapis leaves her mark on Dragalia Lost as someone who sends Calling Cards should.

  • Magnificent Bastard: Lapis, real name Belladonna and the current Blue Rose, is a thief who steals valuable goods from others and returns them to their original owners. She then has a perfect copy forged and places it where the original piece was stolen from. In The Phantom's Ransom event, Lapis manages to help stop a group of bandits who were impersonating her, raise money for her opera troupe, and bring out Karina's hidden talent in singing all without getting captured. After coming across a kidnapped girl who holds the secret to unlocking an ancient weapon, Lapis teams up with Euden's group to destroy the weapon and arrest the kidnapper. A Master of Disguise who radiates charm and wit, Lapis leaves Euden while offering her assistance in future endeavors.

    potential Gods 

I've come up with a few new ideas for potential Gods:

Dealer, Divine Assemblage of the Gambit Pileup

Stocke, God of Messiah Creep

Petelgeuse Romanee-Conti, God of the Pre-Insanity Reveal

When we first see him, Petelgeuse is about as Ax-Crazy as you can get. During Arc 4, he's revealed to have been normal and possibly even a Nice Guy. It was taking a special power called the Authority of Sloth that slowly corrupted him and an Accidental Murder that made him go over the edge. The scene ends with him doing an Evil Laugh as he leaves with a Greater-Scope Villain.

Radi Jaeger, God of ???

Melchior Mayvin, God of the Lotus-Eater Machine

He can trap you in a mental world full of your great desires, but it's all a trick, and he's done it in the past and in the main story.

Magilou Mayvin, Goddess of Sad Clowns

Even though she jokes around a lot, Magilou is actually really depressed. She only works with the party because she has nothing better to do and is Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life.

Rukorou Rangetsu, God of Kukris

He dual-wields a pair of Kukri knives and hardly ever uses the sword on his back. Despite this, he's strong enough to be The Big Guy of the party.
