Lucien Albus Norvel Coquellin (b. 1 February) is a half-blood wizard of the Cauldwell and Coquellin families, the only child of the late Irish wizard Albus Cauldwell and French witch Sylvie Coquellin. He was named after his father, as well as his mother's late grandfather. After Albus's unexpected death, Sylvie moved back home to France, where she subsequently gave birth and raised Lucien for the first few early years of his life. The pair moved back to Britain when he was five following a large disagreement between Sylvie and her parents.
On his eleventh birthday, Lucien received his acceptance letter to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Upon attending the school, he was Sorted into Gryffindor House.
