Outskirts of London, UK
Dog walker/sixth former

- bone-idle, conformist, lonely, weak-willed, indecisive
If 'true neutral' were a person, he'd take the form of Lukasz. An amateur filmmaker and total film buff, he'll capture the perspectives of others, but rarely state his own... entirely out of fear of alienation. Hell, half of his sixth form don't actually know who he is.
He could talk for England, and you'd be fascinated by what he'd have to say, but eventually you'd come to the odd realisation that you know nothing about his life. Nothing below surface level.
LIKES: The Cure, Fleetwood Mac, dogs, 80s culture, films, surrealism, junk food, beer
DISLIKES: spinach, sport, Conservatives, vodka, rom-coms, bad facial hair, man buns, grass stains
- Mother and father are amicably separated.
- Not closeted but has never bothered with 'coming out': while not disrespecting openly camp queer people, he is adamant that it isn't for him: if someone asks, he'll tell them. ("Truth be told, it's nobody's fucking business.")
- Like Becca and Faye, he's not used to having a solid friend group/support system: he's had friends but never felt particularly attached to any of them.
- Meets Eli after escaping prom. Instantly enthralled.
- Makes documentary on LGBTQ teens and the potential closure of Spectrum. Can be seen with a camera.
- His first kiss with Eli (and with anyone) turns into a drunken make-out session, after a game of Spin The Bottle. Eli calls it a mistake, and they agree to let it go. Romantic tension, five months of pining and bad poetry ensue.
- When the group split up, Lukasz takes matters into his own hands and publishes the documentary, sending it to them (as if to say "grow the fuck up, a valuable community resource could shut down if we don't keep going"). Along with uploading it to YouTube, he sends it to the council and local newspapers... not only does this work in reuniting them, but he lands himself an agent.
- Though ambiguous, he and Eli appear to receive a positive ending. Eli apologises for leading him on, Lukasz apologises for being a love-lorn fuckwit and the two make sure to kiss while sober. Whether it's a goodbye kiss or a reunion kiss is up to subtext.
- Lukasz takes melatonin tablets for his insomnia.
- His real best friend is his nine-year-old Labrador/Golden Retriever hybrid, Kirk. Why did he call him Kirk? Nobody knows.
- Lukasz reluctantly acts as peacemaker between his friends, for fear of having none.
- His favourite filmmakers are David Lynch and Wes Anderson. He studies Media Studies, Graphics, Law and Politics.
The Cure hold a special place in his heart, having been raised on their discography.
