Biography[edit | edit source]
Early Life[edit | edit source]
Luke was born in the fantastic vacation town of Isla Paradiso to a very prayerful family. His father, Jason Coll was the mayor of the town and his mother, Megan Coll (née Jana) was a stay-at-home mom; along with his older sister Virginia Coll. Although Luke and his family seemed to be the perfect family outside the house, it was not the same on the inside of the house. His mother was a constant drunk who would have her butler bring her drinks from the local bar every night and would drink until she passed out, while his father would always be cheating on Megan by local prostitutes almost every night. Both parents would not pay attention to either Luke or Virginia and their only company were each other.
Megan would usually have her lovers brought over to the mansion where they lived to drink with and when Megan would pass out from drinking the lovers would usually rape Megan and beat on Luke and Virginia, along with threatening to kill them with a gun. The first time this happened Luke was 7 and Virginia was 12. This went on for years and by the time Luke was 12 and Virginia was 17 this was normal for them and every time Virgina would do her best to protect Luke from the constant beatings by Megan's lovers. At age 16 for Virginia a trend began where she would also be the victim of rape from her mother's lover and every time it would be in front of Luke who wold desperately try to stop, resulting him in getting beaten even more than usually.
On Luke's 13th birthday (which both parent's either forgot or ignored) Megan became drunk once again and attempted to harm him, but Virginia protected him. This resulted in Megan fighting with Virginia; while at the same time their father was woohooing around in the master bedroom with a prostitute. During the fight, Megan was able to get a hold of a knife and began to stab Virginia. Helpless, Luke banged on their father's door only to get one reply, "GO AWAY! I'M BUSY!" Eventually Megan killed Virgina with about 20 stab wounds and was bleeding out across the living room carpet. Luke tried to revive her but was already long dead. Megan passed out from the drinking and Luke was forced to stay with his dead sister and passed out mother until their father emerged from his and Megan's room. Eventually Jason appeared and was shocked by the discovery. Not even trying to comfort Luke, he pushed the prostitute out and paid her §1,000,000 simoleons not to say anything about what she saw. Jason pulled Megan into the master bathroom and forced her to take a cold bath. Then dragging Virginia's dead body into the basement for the time being. He had the butler's clean up the blood, only explaining that they had spilled some wine. Jason threw Luke into his room and yelled at him not speak about anything on what had just happened or he would kill him. In the middle of the night Jason dragged Virginia's body into the forest and threw a rock at her head to make it look like a homicide.
That morning (Megan was sober at the time), Jason called the police reporting that his daughter had been kidnapped. Luke was forced to go to school that morning and not to say anything about what had happened that previous night. The police searched across the entire town eventually finding the body 3 weeks after she had "vanished" from the mansion. The family attended the funeral, with Megan crying (it is unknown if she really meant it or it was a show), Jason not saying a word and standing strong over the casket, with Luke balling his eyes out with tears. The police report stated that an unknown intruder entered the house, kidnapped Virginia and murdered her by stabbing her and blunt-force trauma to the head by a heavy rock and that an investigation would begin to find the killer. But Jason was able to close the investigation early stating, "We do not want any more pain by rubbing the salt in the wound by facing the killer in the face." Luke was now all alone.
Teen Years[edit | edit source]
After the death of his sister Virginia, he had to deal with all of the abuse of his mother's lovers. It was horrible! His father continued to sleep with prostitutes all over the town and his mother would still drink and bring home men from the bar who would abuse Luke since both of his parents didn't care. Luke would lock himself in his room and hope for the best, but his mother's lovers would still burst through the door and abuse him. He would constantly walk into school with a broken arm or cut forehead and his father forced him to say that he fell down a steep staircase at their home. Every day after school he would walk to the cemetery where his sister was berried and would just wish that she was still alive, but to no avail. He finally decided to speak up and talked with the guidance counselor at his school and the police were called. Jason and Megan were brought to the school by the police and they were told that an investigation would be taking place at their home and until further notice Luke would be placed into the care of his paternal grandmother, who lived in Hidden Springs. Jason protested stating that there was nothing wrong at their home and that Luke had always been a joy and pleasure to be around at home.
Brief stay in Hidden Springs[edit | edit source]
Luke was sent to stay with his grandmother in Hidden Springs and he loved his grandmother so much. His grandmother's name was Lucy and she always believed that something had been going on at there home back in Isla Paridiso. While staying in Hidden Springs he was enrolled into the School of the Gifted where he had excellent friends and made very good grades. Lucy was a retired teacher from the school and was able to help Luke do his homework and study for quizzes that were coming up. One of his best study partners was one of his best friends' sister Sarah Georgia. He wouldn't know it at the time but he had met his future wife. At his 3rd month staying in Hidden Springs he got word from Isla Paridiso that the investigation had ended and that both of his parent's weren't charged with anything and no evidence was found of abuse at the home and that Luke would be returning back to his parents. This was one of the worst news' that Luke had ever heard because he knew that he would be dead meat as soon as he got back home.
Return to Isla Paridiso[edit | edit source]
Dead meat he was. The night that he had returned Jason really abused him beyond any other abuse that he had gone through before. While punching 13 year old Luke his father would scream, "YOU GAVE US BAD PUBLICITY!! HOW DARE YOU!! YOU'RE GLAD THAT I PAID OFF THE CHIEF TO END THE INVESTIGATION!!" After about 3 weeks of returning home, everything went back to normal. His father ignored Luke and messed around with the prostitutes again and his mother returned to drinking and bringing home lovers that would abuse Luke. He would never speak at school and had no friends, the teacher's hated him but yet he got amazing grades; straight A's. On his 15th birthday Jason requested that his wife's lovers not hurt Luke to bad, this time... This continued for years upon years. He would go back to his sister's grave site every day and would pray that she would return to him.
At the age of 16, his mother became very ill. She would have constant black out's, throwing up, having rapid change in behavior, and would have seizure like episodes. Her lovers would just sit there and tell Luke that his mother was going to die and then abuse Luke, even at the age of 16 Luke was in no way capable of fighting back. 3 days later his mother wouldn't wake up from her drunken state, her lover left the house in a rush and after discovering her, Jason called the ambulance. She later died about a week later from alcohol poisoning, but Jason put out to the public that she had died of cancer. A funeral was held and she was buried next to Virginia which made Luke sick since Megan was the one who killed his beloved sister. Now that his mother was no longer around, her lover's could no longer abuse him. His broken bones and scratches and scrapes began to heal. But still his father constantly ignored Luke and would still mess around with prostitutes.
At age 17, Jason began to use drugs and after playing around with his prostitutes would beat upon Luke in his unstable state. The abuse had once again started and Luke could barley stand it anymore. He thought that his life would pick up after his mother was gone but he was wrong. One time, Luke tried to fight back against his father, which only resulted in Jason throwing Luke down a flight of stairs breaking his arm and leg. Luke wouldn't dare speak out after what happened when he was 13. But he did plan to leave as soon as he turned 18 and move to Hidden Springs in hopes of finding his grandmother.
As soon as it turned 12:01 AM on his birthday, Luke packed up his things and left the house.
Escape to Hidden Springs[edit | edit source]
As soon as Luke packed up his things, he sneaked into his father's room and stroll 3,000 simoliones and was able to sneak back out without his father noticing him. After Luke was able to get out of the house he headed for the Isla Paridiso International Airport where he was able to purchase a ticket to the only place where he was ever happy, Hidden Springs. The one thing that he wanted to do when he got there was to find his grandmother who had cared for him while his parents were under investigation for abuse charges. But when Luke got there he headed to Lucy's old house (where Luke had stayed with her) to find that it had been apparently bulldozed. Luke then headed for the city hall to find any records on where his grandmother was living. But the only thing he found was her death certificate that stated that she had died only about a year after Luke had left back to Isla Paridiso from heart failure. He was very upset, he had no where else to go and he knew almost nobody in the town since almost all the people he knew when he was there as a child had moved or died.
Luke purchased a house on the poorer side of town and was able to get a small job at the City Hall. He wanted to become a politician and be a much better one than his father was as mayor of Isla Paridiso. But while he was on the streets of Hidden Springs headed for the City Hall he bumped into a woman that looked very similar to a girl that he had meat when he was staying in Hidden Springs as a child; but he realized it was her, Sarah Georgia. They quickly became friends once more and about 2 years of being in Hidden Springs they began to date and he moved into Sarah's small house. She was not thrilled with him going into politics as her past had scarred her for life as she had a bad life where she witnessed her father who had just won the title of Mayor of Sunset Valley being shot and her mother going crazy and abusing her until she was able to escape back to Hidden Springs. But they were able to work out the problem and he was now able to run for political office.
They were able to get more money, not a lot, but a good amount so that they were able to have their basic needs. Around the time Luke won the seat on the Hidden Springs City Council the town helped them with their financial problem and they were able to get married and both of them were able to agree that they were going eventually have children but it had to be when they had enough money to support children since their income was very low. Fast forward about a little more than a year and Luke was now governor of the SimNation and that he had found a genie lamp at a campaign event. When he returned home in front of his wife he rubbed the lamp and a genie appeared and gave them three wishes, the first was wealth, they were able to get 100,000 simoliones and were able to move to a bigger house where in the next week after they moved his wife Sarah announced that she was pregnant with their first child, a boy named Sebastian.
Luke was then put on the ballot for being Vice-President of the SimNation which made him and his entire family thrilled that he has been so successful with his career. Sarah announced a day after it was announced that Luke was going to be on the ballot that she was once again pregnant. She later gave birth to another boy that they named Erin.
