early 20s; a somewhat built, young Korean American man. Thrill seeker mixed with an addictive personality. Luke has been on his own for a while ever since he ran away from home; an extremely Christian household in which lofty expectations were imposed on him. Living independently as a young kid in a crime ridden area, he turned to dealing drugs which he eventually got good at.
