|“||Lucien didn't look at his father, though he stiffened as the High Lord of the Autumn Court approached Tamlin and extended a clenched hand to him.||”|
–A Court of Thorns and Roses
The High Lord of the Autumn Court is a tall, handsome brown-haired man. Lucien resembles him facial-wise and a notable difference between them is their different hair color, the High Lord's is shown as brown while Lucien's is auburn like his brothers, which they get from their mother.
The High Lord watches Feyre's trial and is the first to bestow a piece of magic that turns Feyre into an immortal High Fae.
Before the events of A Court of Thorns and Roses, Beron's youngest son, Lucien, fell in love with a faerie, Jesminda. Beron thought she was an inappropriate match for his son. Lucien said that he didn't care if she wasn't a High-fae. He was certain the mating bond would snap into place and that he would marry her, leaving the Autumn Court to his selfish, scheming brothers. Angered by this, Beron executed Jesminda in front of Lucien while his two eldest sons held Lucien and made him watch.
After that, Lucien cursed him, abandoned his title and left the Autumn Court. He was given shelter by Tamlin in the Spring Court. Without his title protecting Lucien, three of his brothers decided to kill him to eliminate a strong contender to the crown. Two of his brothers were killed, one at the hands of Tamlin and one at the hands of Lucien himself. The third brother escaped and returned to the Autumn Court.
After The High Lord of the Spring Court named Lucien his emissary, he had few dealings with his youngest, although he had never apologized for what he did to Jesminda.
Lady of the Autumn Court
When Beron found out about his wife's affair with Helion, he tortured her and turned her into a shell of what she once was. The methods of torture are not clear, but his wife is described as too thin, pale and subdued. He treats her badly and acts as if she is inferior to him.
