A Mafia boss from the past with a slight temper. Always down for a fight, whether it’s to show-off his own strength or to protect the weak.


  • His mascot is a lion, Augustus, who frequently bites him.
  • Luca was transported to the present when he witnessed an assault and he decided to intervene. It was only after he attacked the assaulter that Luca noticed that the victim had departed and left his bag. Luca wanted to give him his bag back, but it turned out that the man had actually stolen the bag. Mysta Rias was a detective who was chasing the man down, and when he saw Luca with the bag, he accused him of being a thief, and chased him instead. Mysta then was taken away by a mysterious force, and immediately after, Luca was too, transporting both of them to the present day. It is not known what caused this.
