Lu is a curious and extremely ditzy young woman from the town of Estrise. Lu didn't actually hold much interest in the workings of mechanical devices, often bugging Babbage and Sorensen about them simply because she thought they looked and sounded "kewl". Her propensity for disrupting Babbage's workshop and leaving messes for Sorensen to clean up was quite bothersome for the inventor's assistant.
She would help Babbage, Sorensen and the Prince in their attempts to shut down the Revolving Bridge. Shortly afterwards she actually lost the extremely rare gear from the bridge after trashing Babbage's office while "just looking around". After the Prince found the gear, a grateful Lu joined the Imperial City Recapture Army in gratitude.
While at Ceras Lake, Lu actually became more and more interested in the internal workings of devices and began to work under Babbage, even going so far as to imitate his mannerisms, leaving Sorensen out in the cold. She also seemed to develop a quick crush on Shula Valya that quickly passed.
Her mechanical revolving crossbow was actually designed for her by Babbage and constructed by Sorensen. It's said that the crossbow also has a mechanism built in which allows it to link with her other equipment somehow.
Following the Sun Rune War, Lu continued to work under Babbage as his apprentice, doing a great job while Sorensen was away, with a few glaring exceptions.
