|“||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 ACOTAR, The High Lord's youngest son, Lucien, fell in love with a faerie, Jesminda, that he thinks is an inappropriate match for his son. Lucien said that he didn't care that she wasn't one of the High Fae, that he was certain the mating bond would snap into place soon and that he was going to marry her and leave the Autumn Court to his scheming brothers. Angered by the turn of events, The High Lord 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 to join the Spring court. Without his title protecting his youngest, 3 of his sons decided to kill Lucien to eliminate one more contender to his crown. It is then when he lost 2 of his sons, one in the hands Tamlin and one in the hands of Lucien, while the other escaped.
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.
