Luc Champion is a French scientist from the d'Urville ice station.
Before Ice StationEdit
Luc and his cousin Veronique often spent time together as children.
In 1999, Luc Champion was stationed at d'Urville ice station in Antarctica, where on at least one occasion he met some of the scientists from the neighbouring American station, Wilkes, such as Sarah Hensleigh.
When d'Urville received a distress call from Wilkes claiming a diving team had disappeared after finding an alien ship, the French decided to send Luc and Henri Rae along with a team of paratroopers to secure the station, and the spacecraft, for the French.
At first, the American scientists and the newly arrived U.S Marines led by Shane Schofield believed him and the other French to be scientist seeking only to help out, but soon the ruse was soon uncovered. During the firefight in the station, Luc and Rae hid, but when the Marines defeated the paratroopers, they were handcuffed to a pole on E-deck.
When Rebound was ordered to get Champion to help the injured Samurai, they found that the young Marine had died in Rebound's absence. However, Champion examined the body and found traces of lactic acid in Samurai's esophagus, meaning that he had not died from his wounds, but had been smothered.
When British SAS troops began to head for Wilkes, Schofield decided to abandon Wilkes, but left Luc, Rae and the ICG traitor Snake behind. When the Trevor Barnaby and the SAS arrived, Luc demanded that he and Rae be released, only to be shot in the head by Nero.
Veronique, mistakeningly believing that Schofield had killed Luc himself, set out to get revenge when she decided to become an assasin. She soon learned the truth and opted to allow Schofield to live. (Scarecrow and the Army of Thieves)
