Luther was born seconds after his brother Ruselt, with his mothers traits. Due to him being second in line, Roarak considered it was unlikely that Luther would ever become king, and instead he was made to enter an education system which would make him popular to the public. Luther had always wanted to learn magic, which his father was quite strongly against as he wanted Luther to keep to his studies. This resulted in Luther arguing with his father a lot. He excelled at school, but was pulled out when the Six Years' War began, where he was taught first aid so he could treat injured soldiers.
During the attack on Savorden, Ruselt and Luther were kept in their chambers. Cetera suddenly came bursting in and took them through a network of secret tunnels which allowed them to exit Savorden. They then drove to an airship (which was disguised as a Canorican trade vessel).
Luther has pale skin and blood red eyes. He has periorbital dark circles due to his insomnia. He had medium length black hair that was parted neatly on the left side, save for a small tuft of hair that hung over his forehead. After his encounter with Morris, he stopped bothering to to keep his hair tidy. He is below the average height, being at least 15 centimeters shorter than his brother, Ruselt. Luther's first disguise consisted of a dark red shirt under a black pocketed long coat that goes down to his thighs, normal black trousers, black shoes and a cap. His second disguises consisted of the same grey flatcap as before, a grimy white shirt, some brown trousers that are rolled up slightly at the ankles, and a cheap black sleeveless vest that goes over his shirt. His left hand and wrist are discoloured.
Luther has a severe lack of confidence in social situations, and initially he had to rely on others (like Ruselt) to speak on his behalf. He will often fluctuate between nervous stammering, blunt answers or complete silence when speaking to people he is unfamiliar with. This social inadaquacy has caused a lack of defenciveness, and over time has lead to Luther becoming incredibly insecure. Luther constantly reassures himself that he not a weak person in order to combat this insecurity, and despite his calm and rational nature, he can get angry when he is called such, as made evident by his opposition to Zurakiel and his outburst towards his alter-ego.
Despite his social insecurities, when absolutely necessary, Luther can be incredibly strong willed. For example, Luther refused to give Curtis and Morris his brother's location, despite the pain he suffered at their hands. After his experience with Morris, Luther has become very keen to avoid being put in a situation where he might feel powerless, and when put in such a situation, he will override his cautious nature and he will fight until he is no longer physically capable, as shown by his attempts to continue fighting Zeo, despite being mercilessly beaten.
A combination of Luther's own insecurity, as well as a general curiosity has resulted in an ambition to make himself as strong as possible, often by learning more and more magic. [to be expanded]
Despite Luther's calm, and occasionally cold tendencies, he is not immune to certain emotional triggers which can cause him to lose his usually high self-control. One such trigger is being called, "Little man." Not only does Luther associate this with the torture he faced under Morris, but he also finds it belittling, and he sees it as an attack on his strength. Luther is also not incapable of feeling remorse after the death of the friend, which is made evident by his despondant reaction to Vulkas dying.
