(2 Unique)

Gáe Bolg meaning “spear of mortal pain/death spear”, “gapped/notched spear”, or “belly spear”, was the name of the spear of Cúchulainn in the Ulster Cycle of Irish mythology. It was given to him by his martial arts teacher, the warrior woman Scáthach, and its technique was taught only to him. It was made from the bone of a sea monster, the Coinchenn, that had died while fighting another sea monster, the Curruid. This was the first relic bestowed upon Lucas by his father, oddly, as a joke. The spear is a deadly noble phantasm that belonged to Cúchulainn, not Lugh. This originally caused more than a few ruffled feathers but after Lucas’ first few expeditions against evil, Cúchulainn had to admit that for the time being Lucas is the best representative on earth to carry the spear.


Unique Powers:

Gáe Bolg: Barbed Spear that Pierces with Death
(Unique Power ●●)
After an attack, the wielder can do the same damage again by successfully yanking the spear out on a successful (Strength + Melee) roll (against the target’s (Strength + Athletics) if they resist).

Gáe Bolg: Soaring Spear that Strikes with Death
(Unique Power ●●●)
This is the largest and most powerful attack delivered using the spear. It is the “attack that unleashes countless darts at the enemy” that is spoken of in the legends. This attack utilizes the full potential of the lance’s curse, converting all of Lucas Legend into energy and releasing the accumulated power after the spear is hurled, detonating on impact with enough power to blow away a multitude of enemies.

Lucas prepares to use this ability by backing one hundred meters away from his opponent, taking a crouching position on all fours, and accelerating through an approach run by dashing fifty meters before taking to the skies. He arches his back as if drawing a bow and hurls it towards the ground with all his might. It distorts space to create a “tapestry of action” that splits into numerous spearheads that pour down over the enemy.

Rather than dispatching a single foe with absolute accuracy, its focus as a technique is to attack the enemies together with the surrounding area in a carpet bombing fashion to cause massive destruction. Due to being hurled with all of his energy, it cannot be dodged or blocked under normal circumstances. The spear travels at mach two and could circumvent the world.

By spending all legend points and two willpower dots: Lucas’ attack hits all enemies before him (his friends are just as susceptible), doing full damage and bypassing all armor. Lucas may then roll the weapons damage and add all success for additional damage. In addition: single success count for double and 10 counts as three success.
