Proctor Luciana Pullo was a high-ranking member of the Clockwork Apostles during the mid-Second Era. In a previous life she served as battlemage and a lieutenant in Reman Cyrodiil's army during the Akaviri Troubles and Valenwood annexation. She is said to have burned a whole regiment of snake-men to cinders at the siege of Pale Pass, and earned the Tsaesci title, "Xhiado Kas", the Flame Maiden.[1]

She was teleported to the Clockwork City in 1E 2712, when during the Valenwood campaign, she locked staves with a deceptively powerful Wood Elf spell-eater named Celedith. Luciana conjured a bound sword and cleaved his staff. The flood of arcane energy released from the staff led to a flash of light. Sotha Sil found her gravely wounded on the outskirts of The Radius and used his advanced technology to save her life and deliver her premature son. Luciana would decide to join the ranks of the Apostles and rise through the ranks of Clockwork Apostles and become a proctor as well as raising her son, Marius. Sotha Sil would reveal to her in a prophetic tone that the reason he saved them is because she would one day shine a light. She would later discover her son had a terminal heart defect, a result of the circumstances of his birth. Sotha Sil entered the Cogitum Centralis in 1E 2721, and when Marius' condition worsened, Proctor Luciana forcefully entered the Centralis in 1E 2730 to ask him to save his life. Sotha Sil stated that while he had the power to heal him, circumstances made it impossible and he would not save his life. He then teleported Luciana back to the city and continued his seclusion in the Centralis until at least 1E 2750. Luciana would remain a proctor within the clockwork apostles but would lose her love for Sotha Sil.[2]

Sometime around 2E 582, Nocturnal tried to take control of the Clockwork City. She summoned Sotha Sil's Shadow, who replaced him as ruler of the Clockwork City. Meanwhile, one of the Clockwork Apostles, Chancellor Gascone Dusant, sought to deliver the Skeleton Key, which had been accidentally found by a Factotum beneath the Brass Fortress, to Clavicus Vile, only for the Key to be stolen by the Blackfeather Court. The Vestige, assisted by Divayth Fyr and the Clockwork Apostles, unveiled the plot, but were unable to reclaim the Skeleton Key before it was taken by Sotha Sil's Shadow.

Nocturnal and the Shadow then attempted to seize control of the Clockwork City by using the key to try to unseat the real Sotha Sil from his Throne Aligned, and have the shadow take control of the Throne. The Vestige and Luciana would intervene and defeat the shadow in combat, but Nocturnal intervened and had her shadows envelop the area, attempting to consume the heroes. Proctor Luciana Pullo would not yield, and at the last second would use her shadow-banishing light she learned from Sotha Sil, to keep Nocturnal's shadows at bay. Divayth Fyr also arrived at the last second and kept Sotha Sil alive and constrained the shadow. They bought the Vestige enough time to be able to remove the Skeleton Key from the Throne Aligned and awaken Sotha Sil. Sotha Sil would then reunite with his shadow and banish Nocturnal from his realm.

Luciana would collapse from exhaustion as a result of the fight but fulfilled Sotha Sil's prophecy that she would someday shine a light. Sotha Sil offered the Vestige a Boon for their aid, but it is unknown if they were tempted with acquiring power or chose to save Luciana and delay her eventual death until a later time.[3]
