Lucienne is much more attached to reality and what’s practical than Dream; he returns assuming nothing has changed in his absence, but she points out that that’s foolishness, that people and nightmares and other things do in fact change over time. She is forever referencing how things are now to how they used to be, showing that she uses the past as a guidepost to make decisions in the present about the future (Si). She is also far more cautious than he is; she points out that he cannot trust the dreams and nightmares anymore, that it is stable, that the last time he insisted he would be ‘fine’ in the mortal realm, he got captured for a hundred years. She’s decisive and logical, pointing out the facts to him often, relying on what her books tell her about magic, the future, and the people they deal with (if she cannot find them in a book, that means they are out of sync with reality and need found… and that can only mean they are in the presence of one of the missing dreams!). She efficiently handles problems, both with and without Dream, and points out the likely consequences of his decisions, but she is also more in touch with her humanity than he is at times. He’s icy and distant, but she has become soft over time, more responsive to the needs of the situation and pleasant to those she encounters. She feels it’s wrong to forbid a nightmare from dreaming for herself (she wants to be a dream and inspire rather than create terror). She argues that Dream needs to give humanity a chance, and not always assume the most straightforward method is the right one. She even puts him in his place once or twice and risks his wrath in the process. This shows her Ne development over the hundred years of his absence, in that she is willing to look at things from multiple perspectives and be open to change in the belief that everything can evolve and move in a new direction.

Enneagram: 6w5 so/sp

Lucienne is so incredibly loyal that after Dream disappeared without a trace and no one knew what had happened to him, and all the other dreams and nightmares escaped or fled, she stayed in his realm and continued to do his work, waiting for him to come back. She does not like to put herself forward for anything, and goes back to the library after he chastises her for interfering in his business, willing to put up with his condemnation even though she knows she’s competent enough to run his kingdom for him—and has been doing so for a hundred years. She is always cautioning him to be careful, and asking him if he really wants to do that, and encouraging him to take along a raven and/or assistance, in case he needs help, and feels annoyed by his refusal to accept assistance. When a random woman wanders into the library, she greets her cheerfully and warmly and asks how she can be of assistance. She did not put herself forward for promotion, but she takes over in his absence and does a good job with running his realm. She knows way more than he does about a lot of things since she buries herself in knowledge-seeking through her books. She is also able to think outside the box better than he does, in believing there are other ways to solve their problems than the usual straightforward methods.
