Common recruitment method

Go to Scrap and enter the Pub. Lute will be sitting in the lower right corner. Talk to him and you'll have a prompt to allow it to join; say 'yes' (of course) to recruit Lute.

Note: In T260's scenario, if you talk to Lute before going to the Caballero Factory, he will not join you immediately; instead, he will come to find you shortly after infiltrating the factory. Conversely, if you beat the boss in the Caballero Factory before talking to Lute, you will never be able to recruit him.

Special recruitment methods

There are no special ways to recruit Lute.

Recruitable characters in Lute's scenario

Humans

Annie: During the Rune Magic Quest - specifically, in search of the Freedom Rune - go to Koorong and talk to the informant (the man with Purple Hair near the inn). He will tell you that the girl near the restaurant may know about Runes. Go up the stairs and find Annie (the blonde girl in the green) and talk to her. She will offer to help you enter the prison, Despair, to help you get the Freedom Rune. Upon doing so, she joins you.

Capt. Hamilton: Go to Owmi and enter the restaurant. Talk to the girl in the green suit with the hat (That's Captain Hamilton), and she will tell you to 'come to Nelson and see her ship some time' or some such thing. Afterwards, head to Nelson, and you will automatically be allowed to walk around on the ship. Find the Captain's room to talk to Capt. Hamilton, and she will join you automatically.

Emelia: During the Arcane Magic Quest - specifically, in search of the Gold Card - go to Baccarat and talk to the lady in the purple bunny outfit (This is Emelia); When you reach the part of the quest where you follow the gnome into the sewer, Emelia will come after you and ask to join. Say 'yes' to have Emelia join you.

Fei-On: During the Rune Magic quest - specifically, when searching for the Vitality Rune - enter Tanzer. After entering, Fei-On will guide you back to the settlement within Tanzer. When you talk to him, agree to help him protect the villagers from Nomad (although you won't be doing any such thing, incidentally), and he will join your quest.

Fuse: During the Arcane Magic quest - specifically, in search of the Shield Card - go to the IRPO and ask about the Shield Card. Fuse will agree to give you the Shield Card if you help him pick a flower that grows on top of a mountain in Mosperiburg. He will join you temporarily for this quest - You don't get game over if you lose to the boss, and he will leave your party if you do; however, upon completing the quest, he will join your party permanently.

Gen: During the Arcane Magic quest - specifically, in search of the Saber Card - head to Koorong, and talk to a skeleton that you find in one of the shopping areas. He will talk about a man who could cut a rope with a steel pipe, and will tell you that, based on this incident, he must be from Wakatu. THe skeleton also tells you that he's in Scrap.

So, go to Scrap, and enter the Pub. Gen will be sitting in the lower left corner. Talk to him, and he will join you.

Rouge: Go to Luminous; Rouge will be in the port (it might be hard to see him, because he blends in with the background). If you talk to him, you'll be prompted to invite him in your group. Rouge will leave your party if you try to enter the Magic Kingdom; however, you can return to Luminous afterwards and recruit him again.
