-Samuel Johnson

((Anything in green happened as a result of Luke's experiences in the Multiverse with other characters))

Luke has long blonde hair, flowing down to noticeably piercing green eyes. He has a gentle smile and a v-cut jaw, with an honest face that's easy to remember once you've seen it. Youthful and observant, he stands at about 5' 11" with the physique of a toned athlete. He can typically be seen wearing plain, casual clothing. He appears in possesion of no weaponry or armors, and looks to be about in his late teens.

Luke is quiet, typically speaking only when a situation demands it. Compassionate and empathetic, he is deeply compelled to help ayone in need given the opportunity. Conversely, he feels a great disdain towards any form of malice, corruption or evil. Pure of heart, Luke's clear conscience allows him to discern between good and bad. His firm resolve and unwavering sense of truth makes Luke's mind indomitable.

Still, Luke's greatest characteristic remains his greatest strength: courage. Luke's unwavering willpower and righteouss bravery is unmatched by even some of the greatest heroes in the Multiverse. No matter how bleak or dangerous a situation may be, Luke will face it all fearlessly, determined to succeed in the end. Although Luke is only human, having no natural powers or abilities; his silent perseverance and firm dedication often see him through the most desolate of quests.

Luke has no parents or family that he knows of, and has few friends apart from some familiar acquaintances. He wanders from job to job, scraping by on the change in his pockets and the nearest diner.

On one such occasion, Luke stopped at Canti's Diner for a bite to eat after a day of work. But when the diner was robbed by the possessed killer, Klaun, Luke dared to challenge the deranged boy amid the burning inferno that Canti's had become. After a brief duel, Klaun's demon cat: Felix, bit into Luke's arm, poisoning him with his lethal bite. Luke barely managed to escape the struggle, and quickly collapsed in a nearby alley, the dark sickness taking over him. He would have surely died there, or have been transformed into some twisted hell-beast, had not London Jones chanced upon him in that moment. A bard with magic abilities, London drew the corrupting poison from Luke's life-force using the Song of Healing, saving his life. Rejuvenated, the young boy set out to find a way to defeat Klaun and Felix...

Luke's past is unique in the sense that he has little-to-no backround story. His history is constantly being written, made up entirely out of his experiences in the Multiverse and his interactions with other characters. Anything can happen to Luke. Whether he be trained or cast aside, find love or make enemies, Luke is a changing, developing character with only one constant: courage.

So begins...

Luke Varum 's eyes flare briefly as Ari calls out to him. He takes notice of the woman, her pale complexion, her strange scent...something wasn't right. Luke simply couldn't feel at ease looking into the dark eyes of this girl.

Still, it was probably nothing. She seemed to have a job here, that said something, didn't it? Luke briefly looks over an overhead menu, scanning through the myriad of foods and beverages. He looks back down at Ari, "A sandwich would be nice." He nods his head.

Luke Varum half-blinks, slightly biting his tongue in his mouth, there's no hiding the concern in his voice. "You're...alright?" Of course she was alright, she was working, wasn't she? Still, Luke wanted to be sure. Whether or not he trusted this woman, if she was hurt, he hoped there was something he could do to help her.

Luke Varum nods, grateful for the woman's assurance. He doesn't notice Chise enter behind him, else he might have confronted her as well concerning her injuries. He smiles youthfully back up at Ari, touching his thumb to his brow, his eyes glimmer. Curiosity found it's way into his words, "If I could ask, how did it happen?"

Luke Varum says nothing as he recieves his sandwhich. He supposed there was a reason Ari had collected such a debt in the first place. Maybe the money she owed was from an honest agreement. Maybe not. Who knows? That sling on her arm could be well-deserved or a serious injustice. Luke wasn't sure.

Luke takes a bite out of his sandwhich, his lids slightly closing as the food hits his empty stomach. Ah yes...that's better. The meal itself was rather plain, but hunger is the best seasoning. He listens to Gabriella get worked up behind him, and a mysterious patron order a rather large ammount of alchohol.

Luke Varum eyes glimmer with concern as he notices Ally, beaten and injured. What the hell....the girl looked as if she had lost a fight, yet she acted as if she was hardly affected at all! For a moment, he simply looks at her, his brows furrowed, wondering just what kind of woman this was...

Luke Varum instantly notices Arash and Zur'Alswein fighting. The spectatle at first entrances him, before horrifying him. This wasn't right. Human beings...trying to harm eachother, and for what? He notices how Arash seems to want to be left alone, that it was Zur'alswein who persisted. With all the human speed he can muster, Luke leaps off his chair, sprinting to the sparring duo, and places a steady hand on Zur'alswein's shoulder even as she fights, gesturing to her to stop. Luke's eyes are wild and sure of himself. There is no fear in his actions.

Luke Varum looks up from his quiet brooding in a dark corner of the bar. He notices the beautiful Natalia, her steady, forceful entry. When he notices Drakus, a cold shiver runs along the length of his back. His green eyes flare with strange anticipation. Luke didn't trust this man. He watches him carefully from his corner, his fists slightly gripping the sides of his pants.

Luke Varum makes no movement, other then the curling of his fingers into slow, steady, fists.

Luke is at first silent. What do you say to a man whose very existance seems to disrupt the very flow conscience that Luke was so accustomed to deciphering? His eyes flare once more, his brows half-furrow, as if wanting to be furious; but finding themselves unable to justify such an aggression.

He speaks once, firmly, darkly, honestly:

"No."

Luke Varum is at first very startled by the gunshot. He percives Andreis shoot Dexter, the spray of blood, the way his body hit the floor. He starts up immediately, rising to his feet with all human speed, preparing to confront who he percieved to be as a murderer. But as Dexter quickly recovers and the tension dies, he finds himself just standing, his hands in white-knuckled fists, his eyes flared.

Luke Varum opens the doors to Gambit's, a dark hood cast over his flickering eyes. Bruises, cuts and scars all find a home in the young man's battered figure, marring his perhaps handsome face and youthful frame. He makes his way to a quiet part of the bar, faintly aware of the ensuing conversations about him. He looks from patron to patron with seemingly mild interest.

Luke Varum sat at one of the tables in Gambit's, quietly eating a small sandwich; the only thing the young man could afford on the holo-menu at the moment. It was satisfying for what it was worth, and it seemed as if even the most humble of meals here could fill an empty stomach in no time.

His watchful eyes looked up curiously. The bar was considerably quiet tonight, something that Luke was thankful for.

Luke Varum only looked up from his meal, the deep green of his eyes glimmering in faint curiosity...and caution. There was certainly an aura to the woman, and a strange, mischievous energy flowed off of her like rich perfume. She was pretty, no doubt...a fact that Luke couldn't ignore. Still, he felt it best if he not address her directly.

He said nothing. Luke cast his eyes down once more, breathing quietly.

Luke Varum finished his sandwich, swallowing the last of the nibbling bread crumbs efficiently. He looked up once more at Eisengarde as she speaks. Had she been addressing someone else? Of course not. They were the only ones in the bar.

"Hey," Luke responded reluctantly, nodding his head in greeting. He found himself a bit taken back by her purring voice, the sound of which only furthering his curiosity. What kind of girl was this?

Luke Varum glanced up at the flickering lights warily, understanding that perhaps this mysterious girl was responsible for the sudden technical difficulties.

"Cheap food..." he answered plainly, "It tastes too." He leaned forward in his chair, resting his forearms on his knees as he looked up at Eisengarde, his green eyes flickering with youthful amusement.

"Besides, I like coming to Gambit's," he continued, "you always meet the most interesting people here." He smiled warmly, nodding towards her.
