Philip Lucas

Lucia's first husband, to whom she refers as “Peppino” in the Italian manner. It's from him that she gets her nickname1). He was a barrister by trade2) but by the opening of Queen Lucia it looks like he had retired and they were living off their “sound investments”.

2)
“her husband amassed a fortune, respectable in amount as in origin, at the Bar” – Queen Lucia, chapter 1
