Lucien remained faithfully in Dream's castle after Dream's disappearance. Eventually, he began to share some of his stories, accompanied by a Werewolf named Rover, in a haunted castle in Germany, which was Dream's castle's real-life intersection (as the Houses of Mystery and Secrets had theirs in Kentucky). Dream honored Lucien's faith by making him one of his prime advisors. Merv Pumpkinhead, who fled when Dream disappeared, was envious of this. Lucien continues to run Dream's library even after the original was replaced.
Lucien had been the first raven to serve Dream and Eve, having been, like Matthew Cable after him, resurrected from a man. When Lucien appeared again as a man during Dream's absence, she taunted him when he attempted to flatter her ability to tell stories by buying up copies of the comicbooks that she hosts. He taunted her back about being damned as a witch, while bringing some books from Dream's library through the castle wall.
Eventually, Lucien was again killed in his real-life incarnation when answering the door at Abel's Hallowe'en party. He has not been seen outside the Dreaming since.
