Lancelot Du Lac or his most common name Lance is the main protagonist of The Magic Knight. He is a Knight born into the Du Lac Family, a family mainly composed of the descendants of Sir Lancelot; as well as the descendant of the Legendary Magician, Merlin Ambrosius. His mother is Gabriel, who is one of the Four Great Seraph making him the grandson of God of the Bible.
Finishing his training in the Chivalric Order, Lancelot eventually moved back to his hometown of Kuoh and lives in his childhood home. He attends Kuoh Academy as a second-year student, he eventually became the president of his own club that he called Knights of Chivalry. Soon he gained his own Brave Saints with him and chose the suit of Hearts.
Lancelot is a seventeen-year-old high school student of average height with unkempt brown hair and green eyes. He has a more toned build due to the training Lancelot went through during the Chivalric Order; following his training with Elaine in Volume 5, he gained a more robust muscular built for his stature. Due to his status as a half-Angel, Lancelot has ten pure white angel wings that grow out from his back.
He is amongst the only people who unlocked his families' innate trait known as the War God, which changes his hair a darkish blond and his eyes a sharper shade of green.
Lancelot has worn various clothes, his most commonly worn is the Kuoh Academy school uniform, which consists of an undone black blazer with a badge representing his status as the official president of the Knights of Chivalry on his collar, a white short-sleeved button down dress shirt with black vertical lines, black pants, and brown dress shoes.
In his training days within the Chivalric Order, Lancelot wore the basic gear worn by trainees, which is a lightweight breastplate, with armor that covers his arms and legs; and a short sword that he keeps strapped to his side. On assignments for the Chivalric Order, he wore a modified black blazer with a white sword/shield knitted on the breast pocket, and a dark colored undershirt, with black pants and sneakers.
At the end of Volume 5, during combat, he switches to wearing a green modified short-sleeved jacket, with the K.O.C President's badge pinned on one of his collar, a black sleeveless shirt with darkish silver lining, black pants with silver lining with a holster on his right pants leg and complete with black shoes.
Lancelot has first shown to be a nonchalant individual with a habit of falling asleep whenever given the chance, he has even been seen daydreaming during his training with a fellow Knight; he prefers to do some assignments at his own pace. He is even known by most as being a smart alec to the point of mocking most of his opponents. As a Knight and heir to the Du Lac family, Lancelot is a very gallant individual who has a strong sense of justice; no matter who the person is he would jump into the middle of a situation to save those in distress.
Lancelot is a very charismatic individual, due to this most would almost immediately follow him into battle or any other danger without hesitation. Because of the time he spent with the children who lived in the orphanage with the Chivalric Order, Lancelot began to think of them as his younger brothers and sisters. Even going as far as to learn how to cook delicious food and desserts for them whenever they wanted. It was soon revealed that he has a weakness when it comes to fighting anyone that he views as being cute, especially when it comes to Nekomata impairing his ability to fight against most Youkai.
In spite of his laid-back and nonchalant demeanor, Lancelot is a very tactical and calm individual. Even when he charges into a situation, Lancelot always relies on quick thinking using whatever tactic he can to win against his opponent, while making it a habit of saving his power so he can use it whenever he needs it. As both a brilliant technician and inventor, he gains a great amount of interest in anything that catches his eye. Despite, how laid-back and intelligent; due to the influence of the War God state, he is susceptible to losing his temper in combat.
During an S-Rank Mission, Galahad Du Lac an eighteen-year-old who had been promoted to Paladin two-years prior was handpicked to be an escort for one of the Four Great Seraph, which turned out to be Gabriel. After their first meeting, Galahad had saved the Angel from being harassed by a number of other males, and the two of them spent almost the entire day just walking around town. Near the climax of their "date", they were suddenly attacked by members of the Old-Maou Faction who wanted revenge for the Great War. The two of them effectively and easily dispatched with the members of the Old-Maou Faction and soon fell in love with one another afterward.
As their relationship with one another developed and deepened, this led to the development of the prototype version of the dimensional barrier that prevents Angels from falling due to their desires. This soon led to Gabriel being pregnant with Lancelot months later within the confines of Heaven. For most of his entire childhood, Lancelot grew up in Kuoh Town attending elementary school together with his two childhood friends; Issei Hyoudou and Irina Shidou. It was during his time as a student in school that it was found out that he was born with the inborn attributes of a Knight, but also the ability to wield the magical abilities of a Magician; making him the first Magic Knight.
During his time with his childhood friend, the two of them spent most of their time playing in the park and playing Heroes with wooden swords. During those times there were also moments when Galahad would send him on "Special Mission" that would entail Lancelot going to the stores to pick up groceries and running into Gabriel by "accident". During the short time that they spent together, Gabriel would hold him in her arms, while flying into the air using her twelve pure snow white angel wings.Once he turned 7, Lancelot was able to officially join the Chivalric Order in order to become a Knight. In his time within the Chivalric Order, Lancelot ignored the looks of disdain that he would get from the older Knights who were annoyed by their being another Lancelot seeing him as just another mistake waiting to happen. Almost days after starting his training as a Squire, he met the adoptive daughters of another Paladin: both Yumi and Jeanne d'Arc, eventually befriending the two of them.
During one of the days where Lancelot was practicing his swordplay when he noticed that he was being spied on by a number of children living in the orphanage. Realizing that they were all watching him, he called them over and started to tell them about what was life like outside of the Chivalric Order; even listened to whatever dream they wanted to fulfill. After his first interaction with them for a number of months, he continued to visit the orphanage causing them to refer to him as their older brother.
Later on, Lancelot learned how to cook so that he could make whatever good food for them whenever they wanted. While working as a Knight, Lancelot was partnered with a Witch from one of the Magician Associations, Grauzauberer, Lavinia Reni, a wielder of one of the Thirteen Longinus, Absolute Demise.
