Lucius Priest

An 11-year-old boy from Jefferson, Mississippi, Lucius has been raised to be fair, nondiscriminatory, and polite. Growing up at the turn of the century, Lucius is filled with the concepts and ideals of rural America. However, when Boon decides to steal the family vehicle, Lucius cannot help but to assist, in that his own passion for non-Virtue is revived. Through his journey to Memphis, Lucius lies, participates in fistfights, hears women abused, and learns much of discrimination, sexism, racism, and heroism. Lucius finds that he himself must learn to make his own decisions about the world around him, and about the characters of those he chooses to associate. While Lucius originally blames the powers of Virtue and Morality for his decisions, he learns by the end of the novel that he himself must face up to and learn from the choices and mistakes he makes.
