biography born the baby of the malum family, lucas was protected from the world by his parents, and his older sister edith. growing up in the shadow of a protective older sister, was actually pretty nice for lucas. he always had someone to bother, annoy or have read to him. not to mention, edith used to beat up neighboring kids that picked on lucas for being a little over weight for his age. lucas has always looked up to his older sister, she's strong, fierce and doesn't take any lip from anyone. he aspires to be that type of person, and looks up to edith like a mother.
he has always had a sense of wonderment about the world, he sees it through rose colored glasses. lucas will find beauty and a reason to love something (or someone) in it's entirety, he doesn't have hate or malice in his heart, and believes that everyone should do their part to be the reason someone smiles. lucas is in love with the world around him, he's always been fascinated by the idea of not being the 'only planet with life on it'.
upon entering his freshman year was introduced to hockey and lacrosse and absolutely thrived. high school for lucas wasn't the easiest, but somehow he pulled it together and graduated. he likes to thank the tutors his parents got him, his sister for pushing him to succeed, and his own brain. lucas knows that he isn't the smartest being, but he knows his worth, and that sometime you have to give yourself credit when it's due.
upon graduating, he tried (attempted and failed) to go to college for liberal arts, but found that the bustling atmosphere and being out on his own for the first time, was too much. he dropped out after his first semester, much to the disappointment of his family and joined the work force. his first job was at an animal shelter, the money wasn't great - he was barely getting by, but lucas loved helping and making a difference. even if he and mostly every cat he encountered didn't get along.
when his parents passed away, lucas was completely crushed and hopelessly lost. he didn't know how to convey the hurt that he was feeling and took to moping around and hiding out at his sisters place. she picked him up, dusted him off, and set him back on his feet and back into the world of the living. because of this, he holds edith in such high regards and looks up to her more each day that passes. he can't imagine a life without his sister, and would do anything that she asked of him.
he stepped back into the world, and found himself seeing things in a new light. because of how fragile he realized life was, and that death was coming for all of them some day, he appreciated everyone a little bit more. he doesn't hold any grudges, or go out of his way to be mean, rude, or off putting to anyone. he wants everyone in his life to know how much he cherishes and loves them and because of this, asked his sisters ex husband, xander, for a job.
cue his entrance into the real world. becoming the receptionist at the office of the mayor was unreal. he was learning so many new things, like how to use a landline with multiple lines to ring, how to use a copy machine, and that mayor's didn't all have secret sanctums of solitude hidden underground. he wasn't the fastest at his job, or the most qualified, but he was hard working and willing to learn all that he could.
soon, he was able to afford to live in west, village with his roommates, lucas started working out, not eating out so much, and really coming into his own as a person. of course he still relies heavily on the ones he loves around him, but is trying to become the type of man he idolizes and become successful in his own way. he dreams of opening up his own bakery, but that's left for his dreams as of now. who knows what the year has in store for him.
