Lucy Farr (OU)
She's also the protagonist/narrator of We're Shinsengumi Lunatics!
Lucy is something of a delinquent. She's fierce, but most of the time simply comes across as grumpy and antisocial. She gets along well enough with the other members of the Shinsengumi, however. She can appear quite cruel at times, but seems to genuinely care about her friends - though she'd rather die than admit it.
Lucy smokes, and is the only one of the Shinsengumi who does so.
Lucy has an aggressive, animalistic style of combat. Whilst she occasionally incorporates techniques into her style, she prefers formless attacks such random slashing with her Katana and wild, unorthodox punches. She fights with little concern for self-preservation, or any spatial awareness, which often results in her getting heavily injured.
We're Shinsengumi Lunatics!
Lucy is featured in the short story We're Shinsengumi Lunatics!, which takes place before her introduction in the main RPG. She's shown as one of Sefer Yetzirah's bodyguards during one of her meetings with the Neo Ta'har. Afterwards, she's witness to a fight between Cassius Calm and Sefer. Sefer wins, though Lucy inquires as to why Sefer didn't use her Stand, Cruel Angel's Thesis, at which point Sefer reveals its true nature.
Negotiations with the Sahagin
Lucy was introduced as the Kusanagi headed to the Sahagin homeworld of Sapsa to attempt to gain allies. She watched the orbital entry from the Kusanagi's observation deck before walking with Masuta Kira to the bridge. She teased Kira about his crush on Sefer Yetzirah.
After the Kusanagi returned to the orbit of Sapsa, Lucy went to check up on Cassius Calm, who was being held captive aboard the ship. However, he had escaped, and she was forced to battle him, summoning her stand Sympathy For The Devil. The resulting fight destroyed a good portion of the ship, and Lucy was outmatched and defeated, though Cassius spared her life - even going to the extent of preventing her unconscious body from falling into a crater filled with molten metal. She suffered a broken left hand and cracked sternum during the fight.
Sympathy For The Devil
Main Article: Sympathy For The Devil
Lucy possesses the Stand, Sympathy For The Devil. It is an incredibly powerful Random-Type stand, with melee abilities which fit Lucy's "full frontal assault" style of combat. It can control fire and ice.
|“||I've gotta hand it to you - that's pretty bloody evil. Getting thrown in a jail cell for attacking an innocent woman in the streets - well, as innocent a woman as Sefer Yetzirah can be - and then breaking out, to try again? Especially after begging for your life? That's pretty dastardly, I'll give you that. But I'm no saint myself. In fact, I'm regarded amongst the Shinsengumi as being an absolutely irredeemable delinquent. You see, if I ever see someone talking about Neon Genesis Evangelion, I always punch them straight in the face, even if they're just a little kid. And if I even suspect that someone standing near me is listening to vaporwave, I always cut their headphone cables - even, no, especially if they've got a nice set. If I see children misbehaving in public, I'll always shout at them, even if their parents are nearby - and if their parents take issue with it, then I shout at them too. So I guess you've got to ask yourself one thing, scrub - do you really want to fight a prime evil like myself?||”|

|“||I mean, take Sefer Yetzirah. Our boss. She always walks around with this goddamn smirk and her hands in her pockets, like she's the coolest thing out and the queen of the whole goddamn universe. Well the thing is, she could be, couldn't she? I mean, most people who do that sorta stuff - like, people who wear sunglasses indoors or trenchcoats or godawful stuff like that - they think they're all this and that and a total badass, but at the end of the day they're just scrubs, right? But Sefer's the real deal. I mean, she walks around with her hands in her pockets, and she doesn't even need to take them out - like, if she wanted to beat the crap out of someone, she'd just summon her Stand to do it, or teleport them in half with their mind. And she always has that smirk because she always knows what's going on. She really does.||”|

|“||Then there's Lilith. She's not as much as a badass as Sefer, I guess - like, she's all cutesy and girly. Not that you can't be girly and badass, though. God, I've used that word so much it's lost all meaning, right? I suppose what Lilith is, she's cool. Like, she can be all cutesy, and she'll give you a hug if you're feeling down, and if you're ill she'll sit by your bed all day until you get better, but when the push comes to the shove she won't hesistate to cap a guy. I mean, her Stand's this cool railgun thing, and she knows how to use it. I'm fairly sure she blew up a moon once. And that's cool - being able to be yourself, but also being strong enough to protect the people you care about, and having no conflict between those two things. God, I sound all mushy, now. I need more coffee.||”|
—Lucy Farr, on Lilith Heyerdahl
|“||Then, there's Zero. Strong silent type. I mean, too silent for my tastes. I like someone who knows when to shut up, but he hardly ever talks, and if he does, it's only to Sefer. But he's a badass. I mean, anyone who carries two Katanas, and has an eyepatch - I mean, it goes without saying. They're a badass. But there's not much to say about him, really.||”|
—Lucy Farr, on Original Zero
|“||Then there's Kira. For starters, that's a girl's name. Kira. I'm not the only one seeing this, right? And he's the reason I said we're kinda badasses. I mean, carrying six Katanas is cool, but what the hell's the point if you can't use them. He does all those spinny tricks with them but it's just like - well, he could've taken a gun, or just a slightly lower amount of Katanas. Or something. And he has this really, really blatant crush on Sefer. Like, I guess she's pretty hot, but there are far better looking girls and - well, Kira's not bad looking himself, so I'm sure he'd have no problem scoring any of them. But Sefer's just so goddamned evil, I mean, I've no issue being friends with her but I wouldn't be like, "Hey, Sefer, let's smash pissers!" - mainly because I'm not a lesbian, but even if I were, I'd probably go for someone slightly less mephistophelian. But whatever. Different strokes for different folks.||”|

—Lucy Farr, on herself
- Lucy previously appeared in Fight la Fight, another RPG run and played by User:FullFrontal. He felt so attached to the character that he decided to bring her over to BZPB. This is similar to how the characters Nikolai and Amy ended up in the BZPB Multiverse; both of these characters originally appeared in Firegate, a precursor RPG to Fight la Fight.
- Differences between BZPB and FLF Lucy include; FLF Lucy not having a right eye (losing it partway through the RPG), BZPB Lucy being a smoker from the beginning of the series (FLF Lucy developed this trait much later on), and BZPB Lucy being a member of the mysterious and blatantly evil organization, as opposed to being an enemy of it (She fights against the group Sacred World Organization in Fight la Fight). As BZPB Lucy has only just been introduced, the full extent of the changes remains unknown.
- Her name is a reference to the biblical figure Lucifer. In Fight la Fight, it also refers to that version of Lucy being a demon.
- Lucy was originally going to be User:FullFrontal's main character in BZPB, but he scrapped this idea, because he though a ~twenty year old girl fighting ~150,000 year old demigods with a Katana would be a silly idea. He then went and did it anyway.
- Lucy uses the KM2000 combat knife. This is the standard knife of the German Bundeswehr.
- Claymore ships Lucy and Masuta Kira.
- In Fight La Fight alone, she:
- Re-entered the atmosphere, unprotected
- Was stabbed through the chest from behind
- Had her neck stamped out
- Was stabbed through the abdomen with a greatsword
- Had her forearms cut off by her primary love interest
- Was shot in the face, and then had her eye torn out
