Lucas Grant was born October 7, in Neighborhood/Harlow to working class parents Joseph and April Grant. By the time Luke was 4 his father had started to enter the late stages of a debilitating genetic disease. Thanks to modern medicine Joe was able to continue to live albeit not comfortably, nor happily. Luke grew to be a strong, intelligent and sensitive young man with an appreciation for literature and history. Due to his father's condition he worked many odd jobs throughout high school to supplement his mother's income, never getting to play football as he always wanted. After high school Luke managed to attend Harlow University where he attained degrees in Political Science and History.
