- "The world will change."
- ― Joshua "Lucan" Bristow
Captain Joshua "Lucan" Bristow (ジョシュアブリストウ Joshua Burisutou) was an ace pilot of the Osean Air Defense Force during the Belkan War of 1995. He was the lead of Wizard Squadron and was very renowned among the Allied Forces, until his squadron's defection to A World With No Boundaries sometime in June 1995. He is rumored to be one of the founders of the organization.
Joshua was born in the Osean capital of Oured in 1959, and grew up to enlist in the Osean Air Force in 1983. An avid reader and fan of literature, he ascended to the rank of captain and assumed as the leader of the Wizard Squadron after its formation in 1990.
Belkan War and A World With No Boundaries
After the collapse of A World With No Boundaries' coup, Bristow returned to Osea to involve himself with underground terrorist movements in an attempt to resurrect his former organization. In 1999, he was arrested by Osean authorities after his followers released incriminating information on him, and was sentenced to an undetermined term at the Land Ford federal prison. In November 11 of 2005, he was interviewed by Brett Thompson of the Osean Broadcasting Corporation as part of the documentary "Warriors and the Belkan War".
- Strangely enough, Brett Thompson mentions in his interview of Bristow that "several years later, he resurfaced as the leader of a terrorist organization." However, he was arrested in 1996, and he hasn't been confirmed to be involved with the assassination attempt on the President of Osea.
- Like Anthony Palmer, his nickname, Lucan, is a reference to one of the Arthurian Legend characters, in this case, Sir Lucan, that is a servant of the King Arthur.
