Buffy the Vampire Slayer Edit
Luke was an old and powerful vampire who belonged to an organization known as the Order of Aurelius. He was the right-hand-man to the Order's most distinguished leader, a vampire known only as the Master. Luke was well-versed in the prophecy concerning the Harvest, which he believed would one day pave the way for the return of the Old Ones.
Very little is known of Luke's early years save that he was active in Madrid around the year 1843. During this time, he had an encounter with a noted vampire hunter who managed to catch Luke while he was sleeping. The two fought one another, but the hunter managed to survive; one of the few to battle Luke to ever do so. This seeming failure caused Luke some level of embarrassment and he never forgot the incident.
By the late 1990s, Luke and several other members of the Order set themselves up in the underground ruins of a buried church in Sunnydale, California. It was here that his Master slept inside of a pool of blood, trapped inside this house of worship. In 1997, Luke awakened his Master and they prepared for the coming Harvest. The Master hungered and sent Luke out to find him "something young". What he found was a vampire Slayer named Buffy Summers. Luke fought with Buffy inside of an old mausoleum, but she managed to escape, making her the second combatant in Luke's life ever to survive a fight with him. He returned to the Master and told him of his defeat. The Master instantly recognized her as the Slayer and set about baiting her into a trap.
