Luke is a playable Monk in the games Shining Force Gaiden II and Shining Force CD.

Background[edit | edit source]

Luke is a young Cypress guard with a proclivity for goofing off. Eric and Jaha have been his inseparable companions since before Shining Force Gaiden II, though they seem to spend much of their time together fighting with each other.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Thoroughly easygoing, Luke is always ready to shirk guard duty and spend time goofing off with his friends. This not a sign of full-blown incompetence, however. Luke devotes himself to his active parts of his duties without complaint, and when the need arises he proves to be a formidable soldier. It is apparently only the "stand here and do nothing" part of being a guard that Luke has trouble complying with.

Still, Luke may be the most reprehensible of the three Cypress mischief-makers. Speaking to him in headquarters reveals that behind Luke and Eric's backs, he is continuously deriding their combat abilities and blaming them for all the trouble the three of them make. He is also unwittingly the comic relief of the trio, as he tends to take plenty of embarrassing knocks in their adventures.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Luke is a solid Monk with generally decent stats. His Attack is particularly good, so don't neglect to use him as a fighter. His spells can be of use, but his main strength is as an offensive fighter.

In Book 3 Luke is statistically the worst of the three available Master Monks; though their stats are mostly near equal at level 20 promoted, Luke ends up with significantly less MP than the others. Because there is so little statistical difference, it is best to choose your Book 3 Master Monk(s) according to which of their spell selections you like best. Also take into account that Luke is the one you must use in Book 4. If Luke is significantly below level 20 promoted when you get to Book 3, it may be best to take him along for the sake of Book 4 preparation.

Powers & Magic[edit | edit source]

Luke can cast the following spells:

Level 1 - acquires at Level 6
Level 2 - acquires at Level 22
Level 1 - acquires at Level 13
