Lucia's Outlaw Seadas

Lucia's Outlaw Seadas - Libellula

Lucia was unusual from a young age.

As a child, she highly unimpressed with the stuck up attitude of wealthy Italians.

So, during church services, she would sneak under the pews and cut off the bottoms of wealthy women’s dresses.

The unsuspecting women would only later realize what had happened as they stood to leave church, aghast at their ruined skirts.

As Lucia grew, so did her captivating beauty.

But she staunchly refused any offers of marriage, declaring she had absolutely no desire to rely on men who always seemed so certain of their gender’s superiority.

By the time she was a teenager, Lucia would dress in a flowing cape and mask, arming herself with both muskets and swords.

She consistently terrorized the islands greedy politicians and corrupt soldiers, Galloping the hills of Sardina on her beloved horse Tronu.

She often rode with her best friend Chiara, who was almost as equally skilled at being an outlaw.

Feared and respected as a warrior queen, Lucia amassed a devoted following of outlaws, creating a small army of her own.

She is often compare to Robin Hood; except unlike Robin Hood, she preferred living in a luxurious villa instead of a tent in the forest.

After years of patrolling the island and fighting back against Sardinia’s harsh rulers, her demise finally came when she was betrayed by her maid.

And one of her bandit crew’s meals of choice? Seadas!
