Early Life and Education
Lucas, an awkward fourteen-year-old, comes across Maggie during one of his insect hunting excursions and eventually becomes her protector. Though Maggie initially rejected his advances, they eventually formed an intimate connection.
He invites her over for pizza and gives her a teddy bear before taking her to watch football; although she chastises him for not wearing a helmet. Later she asks him to come with her to the school dance, but he dismisses her as shallow because he thinks Cappie has more interest.
Later, he finds himself caught up in a love triangle between Cappie and Maggie, seeking to resolve it by correcting Maggie’s mistaken assumption that he resides in a large house; showing her instead his dilapidated trailer living in a junkyard with his alcoholic father instead.
Lucas is currently a senior at Governor Thomas Johnson High School and participates in several clubs such as track team for two years as well as being in YMCA Leaders Club, National Honor Society, and Key Club. In college he plans to major either in law or medicine.
