Luke was originally a Strongman for a circus in the South. He didn't know that there were a number of Solars also involved in the circus, until the Wyld Hunt broke down their door and started gunning for them. One of the any to duck and cover after the initial strike, he watched his co-workers and friends fighting for their lives in a way he could never comprehend, and was awed. However, the Terrestrials kept up with them easily, and when one of his closest friends was struck down Luke acted. Picking up a shattered tentpost, he faced down the one that had killed his ally, and on his first blow Exalted. He didn't notice, striking with ferocity, rage consuming him, until another of the Solars held him down; he quickly realized what had happened. Sad but firm, he took the chance to adventure with the other Solars for a time, before deciding to part ways and seek his own fortune.
