Lancia has spiked out, slick black hair and dark circles under his eyes. There are two dark lines which may be a tattoo on the right side of his face. He has rarely been seen without his gloves on.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Lancia is kind-hearted and cares for his Family who took him in, dedicating himself as a bodyguard for the said Family to repay their kindness. This experience also made Lancia has soft spot for children and can't be rough on them, as shown when Lambo, I-Pin, and Futa played with him. Upon knowing he had killed his Family while under Mukuro's control, Lancia was driven by grief and regret to the point of being suicidal, Mukuro's control being the only thing that stopped him from killing himself. While under Mukuro's complete control, Lancia hardly speaks or shows any emotion, simply following Mukuro's order. In spite of this, Tsuna still sensed the kindness suppressed deep inside Lancia, which helped Lancia to be free of Mukuro's control. Once free, Lancia returned to his old kind self.
Appearances in other media[edit | edit source]
He appeared along with Basil in the third volume of Secret Bullet: Millefiore Panic. It features Lancia on his way returning to Italy with Basil to make amends for the people of the Famiglias he had killed under Mukuro's control, but then must deal with malfunction of the plane they are riding and must control the plane to prevent it from crash landing.
Abilities and Weapons[edit | edit source]
Lancia is an extremely powerful fighter, skilled in both hand to hand combat and using a large Steel Serpent Ball, which he can lift with little effort. According to Mammon, Lancia is the strongest man in Northern Italy. When he first appeared, he easily defeated Yamamoto with two strikes from his Steel Serpent Ball. Bianchi was also nearly defeated had Tsuna not stopped the attack with his Dying Will.
Despite how Tsuna in Dying Will Mode put up a strong fight against him, reflecting the Steel Serpent Ball back at Lancia, Lancia showed no signs of damage, and then overpowered Tsuna in hand to hand combat, nearly killing him. However, because of how Lancia was not an evil person, and his heart was overcome with guilt, Lancia hesitated and always closed his eyes whenever he attacked his foes, which Tsuna noted, and thus Lancia couldn't defeat Tsuna's Dying Will.
Even after being beaten, he took a dangerous blow from Chikusa's poison needles and still managed to survive, though was nearly killed.
In the Varia arc, when he returned, he singlehandedly defeated all 50 of the Varia's elite squad, who were stated to be second only to the main Varia members. Ken was shocked to see how much stronger Lancia was. Reborn stated that now that Lancia fought of his own free will and not under the control of Mukuro, Lancia could fight without hesitation, and thus became a terrifying force.
Equipment[edit | edit source]
- Steel Serpent Ball: He possesses a large metal ball that is attached to a chain with a ring at the end for holding, making it a mace-like weapon. Due to the ball's snake-like engravings on the surface, it can track and redirect air currents that create a vortex, sucking in whatever is near, giving the enemy the inability to dodge.
Techniques[edit | edit source]
- Senja Reppa - Centers the ball in front of him facing his enemy and hits it with one palm towards enemy.
- Boja Reppa - A more powerful form of Senja Reppa. Lancia throws the ball into the air to give it extra spin and hits it with both palms, adding more power.
- Hija Reppa - The aerial version of Violent Snake Fierce Domination and the carvings from the air into a snake form.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
