Lucian Aster is the secondary antagonist of the 2016 Marvel film Doctor Strange. He is a dark, corrupted and highly skilled Zealot.

Lucian was a practitioner of the mystic arts who fell into line with Kaecilius' scheme to bring the world into the sway of the Dark Dimension, ruled by the dark lord Dormammu. He battled alongside Kaecilius at various encounters with the Masters of the Mystic Arts, led by The Ancient One as they systematically worked together to bring about the great downfall of three Sanctums which actually protecting from Dormammu.
Fighting Doctor Strange
Lucian, Kaecilius and another Zealots firstly destroyed the London Sanctum and then moved on to the New York Sanctum where its master; Daniel Drumm shortly blocked their trail of demolition. They were momentarily distracted with the act of killing Drumm by the arrival of the new Mystic Arts Master, Dr. Stephen Strange. However, Strange wasn't match for the trio, but they were delayed in their purpose of destroying the place during the pursuit of him when he ran. Lucian himself confronted Strange nearby some dimensional gateways, but rather than fight, Strange lured him through one of the doors where he was transported to a distant jungle.
Lucian had returned to the Sanctum briefly only to find Strange interrogating Kaecilius who previously had been shackled in a full body of metal restraint. The pair fought each other and Lucian scored with a grievous injury by stabbing Strange in the chest. But, once again the student eluded him with conjuring a portal to the General Metro Hospital ,where he worked before his accident whilst he left the Cloak of Levitation to duel with Lucian in the Sanctum. Unable in extracting himself from the grasp of the cape, Lucian had released his astral form to follow after Strange through the portal and then continued to fight him in the Astral Dimension. The pair were almost evenly matched until Strange's physical body was jolted with a defibrillator, resulting him in an intense burst of energy in the Astral Plane. However, Strange channeled a second much more powerful jolt into Lucian's astral form, ultimately killing him.
