Grew Up… son of Karen Roe and Dan Scott. While Lucas was a child, he and his mother were abandoned by Dan. In the absence of his biological father, Lucas’ paternal uncle Keith Scott stepped in. Raised lovingly by his mom, Karen, and with Keith as a strong role model, Lucas has turned out confident, unspoiled, and sensitive to the pain of others.
Living… with his mom, Karen, in Tree Hill, North Carolina. Beyond his mom, he lives for his friends: Haley, his best friend; and his basketball buddies Skills, Fergie, and Junk, who all hang out down at the River Court.
Profession… junior at Tree Hill High School. Lucas reluctantly joins the basketball team, at the encouragement of Coach Whitey and his River Court friends. He’s not exactly welcome with open arms by the team’s star, his estranged half-brother Nathan. (Dan is Nathan’s father as well, and a daily – and often overbearing – presence in Nathan’s life.)
Interests… basketball, reading, and writing. Though charming and skilled in basketball, Lucas is a thinker at heart. He cares about Haley and his friends, but perhaps his closest companions are the authors he reads.
Relationship Status… single, but interested in Peyton. Unfortunately Peyton is currently Nathan’s girlfriend, as if Nathan needed another reason to dislike Lucas. Lucas doesn’t go out of his way to impress Peyton, but he can’t help finding himself in her company.
Challenge… navigating a rather complicated high school experience. Lucas would be perfectly content playing hoops and reading books, but now he’s thrust into a rivalry with Nathan that’s complicated by the fact that they share a father. A father, moreover, who abandoned Lucas as a baby. Toss in a love triangle and you have a great formula for teenage angst. Fortunately, Lucas is often his own best source of advice: “Sometimes it's easy to feel like you're the only one in the world who's struggling, who's frustrated, or unsatisfied at barely getting by. But, that feeling is a lie and if you just hold on, just find the courage to face it all for another day, someone or something will find the way and make it all okay. Because we all need a little help sometimes, someone to help us hear the music in the world.”
Personality… stoic, honest, and kind. Perhaps more than anything, Lucas is thoughtful. In part from life experience, in part through his reading, Lucas has turned into a wise young man. He’s a thinker too: “What's more important? What we become, or how we become it?”
