Luchist Lasso (ラキスト・ラッソ, "Luchist Rasso", Luka in the English anime) is a fictional character in the manga and anime series of Shaman King. As founder and former leader of the X-Laws, Luchist Lasso is by far one of the more powerful shamans working under Asakura Hao. Luchist acts as the main rival to Marco Lasso. Apparently, the two were close friends in their past. However, when Aaskura Hao intervened, the comrades' lives would be forever changed.
Luchist is a tall and quite muscular man. He has short bowl cut black hair, a short thick black beard around his chin and cheeks and a black Cross fleury tattoo beneath his chin.
He is commonly seen wearing a black cloak, with a large scarf around his neck and a cowboy hat, with a wide shade and with a feather in it. He is also often seen carrying around a holy bible.
Beneath his cloak he wears a black suit and a navy blue dress shirt with an orange tie and brown leather shoes.
Like Marco he has his own battle uniform that he usually wears beneath his casual clothing. It consists of a black pair of leather pants and a yellow vest with a check pattern. The vest has a hole in the back revealing a tattoo, of the X-Laws sign, on his back.. The holster of his colt is worn in a strap and placed at his left chest.
As Luchist puts it, the battle uniform is used to create a stronger spirit, and more perfect conditions for the Over Soul. However it also requires personal acknowledgement and permanent requirements.
He appears calm and confident, and even cares for Marco's well-being, offering him a small boat home, so that he could relax and avoid being hurt and even cried when he believed he was about to kill him during their final battle. During battle he remains calm and analytic, though when things intensify, he can be carried along, but otherwise he seem to constantly smile while fighting someone.
Like the other X-Laws he too, once heavily believed in "Ultimate Justice". However after meeting with and being defeated by Asakura Hao, he came to believe that only the winner will have true justice. Thus he decided to join up with Hao to gain that justice, knowing that no one would consider the ideology of a loser. He greatly respects Hao and in turn Asakura Yoh since he is Hao's little brother.
It is revealed by Marco that he has a love for cars, that no one else knows about. He also believes that, by taking part in raising Iron Maiden Jeanne, it should be him who deals with her at the time they had become enemies.
Abilities and PowersEdit
As a human he does appear with a strong body, powerful enough to wreck a pair of bulletproof glasses. He also seems able to fence with a handgun, as he is seen fighting of Marco with his colt and quickly gaining the upper hand. As a shaman he is not gifted with much more powers than any one else of his level. Like Marco, he can create the strongest condition for an oversoul by using his battle outfit rather than his regular clothing.

His spirit, is that of the Fallen Angel Lucifer(堕天使・ルシファー, Lucifel). It is originally a Lamborghini Countach LP400, that gained a spirit from its importance to Luchist and later evolved into a Seirei-Class giving it the form of an Archangel. It was the first of the Archangels to be created and can change its over soul into its original car form. It uses a bullet, fired from Luchist`s colt, as a medium. Like the other Archangels it has the ability to shatter souls.
Luchist Lasso is a Shaman from Sicily, Italy and is born in 1949.
When Marco Lasso was young, he lost his parents and became an orphan. It was Luchist who would come to be the one who raised him, as he, at that time was a reverend in a Catholic church-orphanage where Marco was brought. Towards the present time Marco is still grateful for his upbringing. It was because of Luchist, who allowed him to take ballet lessons and took him to car shows. He allowed him to go to the university and helped him create his own company. Marco was also grateful to Luchist for creating the X-Laws.
Later when Marco had become an adult he and Luchist, when they came to eliminate Hao, met Jeanne. At that time she was nothing, but and orphan born with shamanic powers. They raised her, turning her into a savior and a holy person, and made her believe she was destined to destroy all evil. At some point, because Luchist loved his "supercar" so much, a Lamborghini Countach LP400, Luchist gained a spirit that was somehow turned into the first Archangel Lucifer, or "Angel Machine No. 000"
At some point, as explained by Marco, Asakura Hao came and destroyed and killed everything and everyone Marco loved and cared about. It was right when he had created the X-Laws that Luchist came upon the chance to fight the still-weakened child Hao. Finding him at the most unexpected place, Luchist decided to take advantage of the situation and attack Hao from behind. However, due to his Reishi (霊視, Reading the Heart) Hao saw him coming and easily crushed Luchist. However, for some incomprehensible reason, he appeared to let Luchist live.
Seeing as he let him live, Luchist began to rethink his belief of justice and realized that Hao had his very own form of justice. As he met the other people who had decided to follow Hao he decided that only the "Winner's Justice" would be real one, and decided to follow Hao to gain that justice.
Although not mentioned nor seen, he successfully passes the test of the Patch Tribe and gains an Oracle Bell. He also successfully passed through the preliminary rounds. He is first seen on the Patch Jumbo Jet talking to Hao about the other contestants, and later, he is seen flying on the Spirit of Fire, with Hao and his other followers, when the Patch dissolved their Patch Jumbo Jet over soul. After that is he not seen again until Chocolove McDonell mentions that there is three strong factions in the tournament and that one of them is Hao and his followers.
Shaman Fights Second RoundEdit
During the first couple of fights in the Shaman Tournament, he acts as nothing more but a background character when Hao watches the fights and is first given a significant role when his team is matched up against one of the X-Laws teams, Team "X-III".
During this time he and Opacho were asked by Hao to step back, and allow him to do all the fighting against Team "X-III". Agreeing, they watched how the Spirit of Fire butchered Meene Montgomery and Cebin Mendel with ease. However when Chris Venstar revealed his plan to use the "Grenade X" to destroy the Spirit of Fire and leave Hao vulnerable, Luchist panicked and started to hammer on the Patch Barrier, calling for Hao to escape. However Hao had been grabbed by Metatron and was unable to move. Luchist watched in horror as grenade exploded only to reveal an undamaged Hao who had survived by transforming the Spirit of Fire into water.
Invading the PlantsEdit
After being transported to the Continent of Mu by the Patch Tribe, Team "Funbari Onsen", Team "The Ren" and Team "X-I" decided to forfeit the tournament saying that none of them was able to face Hao, Luchist and Opacho both agreed to this, thus making Hao the next Shaman King by forfeit.
The three remaining teams watched him walk into the plants led by Lip and Lap, the Ten Patch Priests and Goldva. When Marco, Asakura Yoh and Tao Ren and their respective teams proceeded to follow him a little later, they were all blocked in their path by Luchist who revealed his battle suit and created his Lucifer Over Soul. Marco recognizing the battle suit decided that he would be Luchist's opponent.
Before anything can happen Lyserg Diethel yells to Marco in fear, only for Marco to yell at him not to come any closer and declare that the two had to finish the fight they started, a fight that was only between the two of them. Marco then proceeds to reveal his own Over Soul, his battle suit and yells that "Justice Always Wins".
After Yoh eases Lyserg of his worries and claims that the fight should really be between the two only, Marco and Luchist comes to have a discussion about "Justice" that leads Luchist to reveal how he met Hao and how his original belief of justice changed.
Following the discussion, both fighters attacks each other with Lushist getting the upper hand by quickly destroying Marco's Over Soul at least seven times finally revealing Marco with no Over Soul and properly no Furyoku left. Crying, Luchist aims his colt at Marco and wishes him goodbye, saying that he will see him again in the Great Spirit and watches as Lucifer's hammer shatters him.
Suddenly Marco appears behind Luchist and grabs him while holding his gun to his chin. He says that he had been fooled again and then reveals that he used his glasses as a medium for Michael to create an Over Soul of himself called O.S. "Fake Marco", that was shattered instead of himself.
Marco threatens Luchist not to move or he would blow his head up and proceed to reveal his plan of letting him destroy Michael so many times as a distraction, knowing from the start that he had no chance against him. Marco begins to explain about his justice being that of love, revealing that after his previous fight with Luchist he received the compassionate love of Iron Maiden Jeanne and realized that his justice was wrong. He yells that compassionate love is the answer to everything, even the one he once recived from Luchist. Luchist thinks to himself how much Marco has matured, and how he didn't mind dying.
Wondering if love was really able to defeat Hao's sadness, Luchist makes one final challenge, yelling that he wanted to see how strong love is and makes Lucifer attack them both. But instead of using the club, he uses the bullet medium to kill both of them, but not shattering their souls. As Luchist dies, his life flashes before his eyes and he remembers all the good times he had together with Marco. A minute later is the spirit of himself and Marco seen talking to Yoh, who questions their actions. Both of them says that it is because they do not know how to stop.
When Jeanne is about to hug Hao within the Great Spirit, Luchist intervenes with Lucifer to prevent her from coming to close to the dark hole. When Hao asks if he is there to be killed by him, he denies it and instead pleads for Hao to send everyone back.
Like most of Hao's followers, he has a far lesser role in the anime. His past history with Marco, Jeanne, and status as the founder of the X-Laws is not mentioned. His medium is also not seen and instead of using a club, his Archangel Lucifer uses a spiked mace. Its appearance is also different, resembling the Archangels more, but with huge bat like-wings and is known as "Cifer" in the English Dub.
During the attack on Babylon Gate, he fights and defeats Marco, although their past together is never mentioned. In the final battle, he is defeated alongside Brocken, Turbine, and Hang-Zeng Chang by Tao Ren.
