"What's more important? What we become, or how we become it?"
– Lucas Scott, The Birth And Death Of Day
Lucas Eugene Scott is the son of Karen Roe and Dan Scott. He was the main character in this series from season 1 to season 6. He was abandoned by his father and raised by his mom and paternal uncle Keith Scott. When Lucas and Nathan both started playing for the Ravens, Nathan began making Lucas' life more difficult everyday. Lucas had a passion for basketball and played at the River Court with friends such as Skills, Fergie, and Junk. His best friend, Haley James, fell for Nathan which eventually drew Nathan and Lucas to become close companions and, eventually, brothers. Lucas also began writing and had his first book published about the people of Tree Hill, during his college course. In high school, Lucas often bounced between relationships with Brooke Davis and Peyton Sawyer. In later years, he became engaged to his publisher, Lindsey Strauss, but she eventually broke this off and he married Peyton, who gave birth to their child, Sawyer Brooke Scott, and the young family left Tree Hill.
Lucas Eugene Scott was born in 1987. He always bonded with his father's brother, Keith Scott. For example, at the age of six, Keith took Lucas on his first camping trip. As they did, Lucas hooked his thumb which started bleeding. Crying, Lucas was soon cheered up as his uncle got out his own pocket knife and stabbed his thumb. He pressed his thumb against Lucas' thumb and told him that now they are blood brothers, making Lucas stop crying.
Lucas' best birthday memory was when he was 12. He was given tickets to see a Duke basketball game for himself, Karen and Keith. They travelled there together and made a weekend of it. As they did so, he enjoyed it so much as it was the first time they'd been a real family. Later in his life, Lucas finds he would give anything to have that birthday back. Also during Lucas' childhood he'd played football and was featured in the local newspaper as his team's MVP.
Lucas only found out that Dan was his father after attending a basketball camp were his half-brother Nathan also attended and was teased about being Dan's bastard son. After returning home, Lucas asked his mother if Dan was really his father and she denied it but that very day, when Lucas came home, he saw her locked in her room crying. Henceforth, he decided to quit the team so his mother won't have to see his face.
Season 1EditLucas is a normal boy living with his mother and always helps his uncle Keith in his garage. He finds out that he has a half brother named Nathan when he attends a summer basketball camp which Nathan also attends. Nathan calls Lucas Dan's bastard son. The rivalry between the brothers continues to grow as Lucas defeats Nathan for control of the river court. Nathan finds a weak spot in Lucas which is his best friend Haley. He befriends her and they start a relationship but Nathan has to stop harassing Lucas in order for their relationship to continue, but he keeps harassing Lucas. Lucas has a huge crush on Nathan's ex-girfriend Peyton. After a while both the brothers become good friends. Lucas kisses Peyton when Brooke dares her to. While crossing the street in a car Lucas gets caught in an accident with his uncle Keith who was drinking at that time. Lucas finally wakes up days after but he sees Brooke caring for her and they start a relationship. Meanwhile, their relationship ends when Brooke sees Lucas and Peyton kissing in her room on Peyton's webcam. Lucas also has a one night stand with Nicki who is ex-girlfriend of Jake Jagelski, and Jenny's mother. Brooke then tells Lucas that she is pregnant with Lucas's child which happens to be a lie because Lucas was also lying to her. When Whitey needs to have eye surgery, Dan takes over as coach of the Ravens and he pushes Lucas and the team over their limits. Lucas is stressed out and he vomits because of his accident. During a game, Nathan has a clear shot to score a basket but he passes to Lucas, who is unable to throw and misses because of his injury. Dan is frustrated and takes out his anger on the team. In the season finale, Nathan and Haley marry and Lucas and Keith leave Tree Hill. They find out about Dan's heart attack. They decide to come back. When Lucas comes back he lays on the River court. Nathan walks up to him and asks him questions and Lucas finds out about how Nathan and Haley are. Nathan jokes and says, "Well she didn't kick me out yet." Lucas laughs at the joke. Lucas sees Brooke and Peyton they didn't look too happy with him.
Season 2EditIn Season 2, Lucas and Keith return to Tree Hill after Dan has a heart attack. Lucas tries to make up for his behavior with Peyton and Brooke and becomes friends with both of them. He also starts seeing a new girl named Anna Taggaro, but they break up amicably when Anna is confused about her sexuality. Lucas realizes that he has romantic feelings for Brooke and begins to focus on building on a relationship with her, even though she is seeing Anna's brother Felix. Lucas discovers on and decides to avenge all of Dan's victims. He finds a stash of cash and an incriminating ledger in the attic at Dan's dealership and plans to expose Dan's illegal dealings, but ultimately fails as Dan has also incriminated Deb. Dan then reveals that the whole thing was a set-up to test Lucas's loyalty, which Lucas failed. As a result, he loses Dan's college fund for him (which Dan had been saving since Lucas was a baby) and even his heart medication. Nathan also ends his friendship with Lucas after discovering that Lucas had planned to bring Dan down and visited Haley behind his back in an attempt to patch up her and Nathan's marriage. Lucas does, however, kiss Brooke in the season finale and confesses that he wants to be with her, but she still leaves for California to spend the summer with her parents. Ultimately, it is just Lucas and a broken-hearted Peyton (after boyfriend Jake left her) for the summer and the last shot is of the two of them sharing a meaningful hug on the beach.
Season 3EditIn Season 3, after the summer, Lucas remains at odds with Dan, who accuses Lucas of starting the fire at the dealership that nearly killed him. Dan tries to strangle Lucas on the basketball court, but Peyton, having learned the truth from Lucas, tells Dan that Lucas actually saved him from the fire. Lucas also protects the true arsonist: Deb. Lucas and Nathan continue to argue over Nathan's treatment of the returned Haley and have a public fight after Lucas accuses Nathan of being just like Dan. Lucas struggles to pay for his heart medication and steals money from his mother, which Haley sees, forcing Lucas to tell her about his condition. He begins a non-exclusive relationship with Brooke and uses Rachel Gatina to make her jealous, but a series of events leads Brooke to sleep with Chris Keller, tearing them apart. Later, he forgives her after she gives him the 82 letters she wrote to him during her vacation but did not send. He and Nathan gradually become friends again. Keith returns, and he and Karen finally get together and become engaged. Keith also plans to adopt Lucas. Tragedy strikes when Lucas's former friend Jimmy Edwards brings a gun to school and fires it, accidentally hitting Peyton and causing a lockdown ("With Tired Eyes, Tired Minds, Tired Souls, We Slept"). Lucas saves Peyton and is devastated by Jimmy and Keith's eventual deaths. After seeing the effect of Keith's death on his mother, Lucas decides to finally tell Whitey, Nathan, and Karen about his heart condition and quits basketball. He goes on a university tour with his mother and realizes that he wants to become a writer. He is also Nathan's best man for his second wedding to Haley. He and Brooke break up for good during the wedding when Brooke learns that Lucas kissed Peyton back during the school shooting.
In Season 4, Lucas tries to get Brooke back, but realizes it is not what they truly want and is not what is meant to be. He saves Peyton from an Internet stalker "Psycho Derek" who pretends to be her brother but when he really is not,Lucas finds out the truth about Derek and saves Peyton from "Psycho Derek".He also helps Karen, who is pregnant with Keith's baby, and plans on going to the University of North Carolina when he graduates so that he can be close to home in case she needs him. Dan also helps Karen with her pregnancy, wanting to make amends for Keith's death. After talking with Dan, Karen persuades Whitey to let Lucas play 15 minutes a game, so as not to let him miss out on something he loves. Brooke and Lucas try again but realize they are over, prompting Peyton to confess her feelings for Lucas. Lucas then discovers that Nathan is planning to throw the state championship game because of his debts. Lucas plans to prevent this and deliberately fails to take his heart medication in order to play better, but Nathan is inspired by learning that he is going to have a son and they win, with Lucas making the winning shot.During the celebration, Lucas, after receiving Brooke's blessing, sees Peyton and tells her that she is the girl he has been meant for. The two then share a long-awaited kiss. They become a couple at the after-party, but their happiness is short-lived when Haley gets hit by a car and Lucas tries to tell the paramedics what happened only to suffer a heart attack. As he is in the hospital, Lucas dreams that he is visited by Keith, who shows Lucas what life would have been like if he had been a lesser person.

Season 5EditIn Season 5, four years after high school graduation, Lucas, now 22, suffers from writer's block and is under pressure from his editor/girlfriend Lindsey. He also tries to help Haley with her son, James Lucas Scott. When Peyton comes back home, she reveals to him that she did come to the signing, and then inspires him by repeating his quote: "Your art matters". When he tells Peyton that the bartender she is flirting with at the Clothes Over Bros store opening is not good enough for her, it becomes obvious that, despite his relationship with Lindsey, he still loves Peyton. After remembering the night he proposed, he goes straight to her house, though she is not there. When Peyton begins to antagonize Lindsey, he goes to confront her, but things escalate into a verbal fight about their break up. A little bit later, after Peyton confesses her feelings and kisses him, he kisses her back, passionately, but later proposes to Lindsey, leading Peyton to tell him that she will bury her feelings so that he can be happy. He then wins his first game as the Ravens coach, although the female counterparts miss it because they were locked in the library. He soon has to go to Dan's parole and speak up in order to have him stay locked up. He decides to have Nathan as his best man and then fuses his bachelor party with Lindsey's. He also gives Haley his new book, and she tells him not to marry Lindsey after reading it. Lucas proceeds with the wedding, but Lindsey stops him after realizing his book is about Peyton. She leaves him, and when he chases after her, he sees Lindsey's bags packed. After a confrontation, she leaves him, saying, "People always leave, Luke. You know that." (A reference to one of Peyton's famous lines, also featured in his first book.) Lucas flees to stay with his mother and Andy after the failed wedding. Andy convinces Lucas to go after Lindsey, prompting him to go to her and tell her that one day she will come back to him. She comes back to Tree Hill for Jamie's fifth birthday, but tells Lucas that it was really over. He then helps Brooke cope with having baby Angie around. After Lindsey calls him to tell him she is seeing someone, he blows up, eventually getting suspended from coaching. He becomes heavily drunk and tells Peyton he hates her when she comes to his help. He later apologizes to her after being confronted by Haley. He tells her that it was hard to let her go, hard to see her and that it remains difficult for him, making apparent his love for Peyton. Lindsey comes by to tell him his book is over and he can e-mail her the dedication. When he does, she reveals by phone that she still loves him. He then decides to go to Las Vegas and calls someone to get married. Brooke, Peyton, and Lindsey are all shown answering the phone, and the viewers are left hanging as to whom he decides to propose to.
Season 6EditIn the first episode of the sixth season, the audience discovers that Peyton was on the receiving end of Lucas's phone call. He waits to see if she actually arrives, and moments later, he finds her through the crowd, making her way toward him with bags packed. They share passionate kisses, Peyton glowing with happiness, and then board the plane on their way to Las Vegas. When they get there, they spend the night in a kinky Vegas hotel room. The next day, they go to the wedding chapel, but the tackiness of the place convinces them that this was the wrong decision. Instead, Peyton takes Lucas to the hotel room where he first proposed to her and they do it all over again, but this time Peyton says "yes" before he has even asked the question. With the upcoming release of his new book, Lucas travels to New York to meet with Lindsey, and eventually tells her about his engagement to Peyton. He soon starts his book tour, but it fails quickly and is cancelled, so he returns home to Peyton. After the two resolve problems and fears of moving in together, Lucas is offered a movie deal by Julian Baker. Julian asks Lucas questions about Peyton before she gets there, and after she runs into Julian near the bathroom, it is revealed that he is her ex-boyfriend. For three weeks, Peyton fails to tell Lucas about Julian, and Lucas is angry when he discovers their past on his own. Although he is initially angry, they patch things up, and Peyton
convinces Lucas to continue taking a part in the making of the film, despite his reluctance to work with Julian. The film is to be shot in Tree Hill, North Carolina. He also learns Peyton is expecting their first child. Though they initially have problems with Peyton's pregnancy, the fact that she may die if the baby is born, the two are eventually married by the lake where they first met, and have their reception at Tric. They soon have a healthy daughter, Sawyer Brooke Scott, which Peyton names after her best friend Brooke (similar to the naming of James Lucas Scott), and the two ride off into the sunset.
For Season 7, Mark Schwahn, the series' creator, said Lucas and Peyton are traveling the world; they are spending time with Karen and her husband Andy, and Lucas is writing a new book. In the season opener, Jamie celebrates his seventh birthday, his second without his uncle. Lucas sends Jamie the basketball which was given to him by Keith on Lucas's seventh birthday. In the card, Lucas says he and Peyton miss Jamie every day. In the later half of the season, Jamie asks Nathan about his relationship with Lucas. Nathan tells him that although they were not close when they were younger they became more like real brothers as they got older, saying "Having a brother is a lot like having a best friend, he helped make me the man I am today."
In the first scene of the eight season, Haley can be seen writing a letter to Lucas. She writes him that she still is missing him and that the river court is missing him. However, it is said that Lucas stopped writing and hasn't kept in touch. Lucas and Peyton are unable to attend Brooke and Julian's wedding due to Sawyer being sick.
Season 9EditLucas comes back to tree hill after an absence in all of season 8.
Karen Roe (Mother): Karen was a single parent after Dan Scott left her and decided to bring up his younger son Nathan. Karen had the support of Dan's brother Keith in bringing up Lucas.
Dan Scott (Father): Dan and Lucas did not have a good relationship. Dan abandoned a pregnant Karen to go to college. When Lucas joined the Ravens basketball team, Dan made Luke's life a living hell and often put him down in order to prop up his other favourite son, Nathan. Although in season two, Lucas chooses to move out of Karen's house and into his fathers. You would presume with good intention but it is, however to try and bring him down.
Nathan Scott (Paternal Half-Brother): Nathan and Lucas had a troubled start to their relationship thanks to their father Dan. Nathan started to date Luke's best friend Haley and as a result the two boys had to be in each others life and that lead to them becoming 'brothers'.
Lily Roe Scott (Half-Sister/Paternal First-Cousin): Lily was born after Keith died leaving Karen as a single mother once again, therefore Lucas helped look after her when she was a baby. Lucas tried to follow his role model Keith and do what Keith had done for him, help raise him. Karen and Lily left Tree Hill with Andy who said he loved both of them.
Keith Scott (Uncle): Keith was more of a father to Lucas than his uncle. He was the parental substitute for Lucas in the place of Lucas' biological father, Dan. Lucas loved Keith a lot; Keith was going to adopt Lucas in season three but tragically, he was killed before they could make it official.
Haley James-Scott (Best Friend, Sister-In-Law): Lucas and Haley were best friends since childhood. They were close long before she started dating Nathan. Originally, Lucas was against Nathan and Haley being a couple at first as he did not trust Nathan due to their checkered history. However, as he and Nathan's relationship grew stronger, he became much more supportive of the relationship between Nathan, his paternal half brother and Haley, his childhood best friend.
James "Jamie" Lucas Scott (Nephew/Godson): Lucas promised Haley while she was pregnant that he would be just as good an Uncle to her son as Keith had been to him. When Luke was asked to be Jamie's godfather, he decided he would go to college with Nathan and Haley to help look after baby Jamie.
Romantic LifeEditLucas has loved Peyton Sawyer since childhood, and begins to get to know her after she breaks up with his half brother, Nathan Scott. However, after he declares his love for her, she tells him "why couldn't you just leave it alone", meaning she'd rather have a fling than a relationship. Lucas is heart broken and begins to get to know Brooke Davis, whom he eventually starts seeing and loses his virginity to. He is still with Brooke when Peyton tells him she wants to be with him, and they passionately kiss at a motel. They begin a secret affair, with Brooke eventually finding out and Lucas breaking up with her. After Brooke ending her friendship with Peyton, however, Peyton decides to end things with Lucas, putting her best friend before him. Lucas, seeing no point in staying, tells his mom he wants to leave Tree Hill. Lucas soon returns to Tree Hill after his biological father, Dan Scott, has a heart attack. He wants to make amends with Brooke and Peyton, and once again becomes good friends with them. He begins seeing Anna Taggaro, a new girl, but they eventually break up after he discovers her confusion over her sexuality. Lucas then begins to develop romantic feelings for Brooke, despite their sketchy past relationship and her current one with Anna's brother, Felix Taggaro. He does, however, kiss Brooke in the finale, and tells her he wants to be with her. She leaves for California for the summer never the less, and Lucas is seen comforting Peyton on the beach where the share a very meaningful hug. Though Lucas grows closer to Peyton after he confides in her that he saved Dan from the dealership fire, Lucas becomes set on winning Brooke back. When she tells him she wants a non exclusive relationship, he pretends to be satisfied with that and begins using Rachel Gatina to make her jealous. This drives Brooke too far and she sleeps with Chris Keller, abruptly changing Lucas' opinion of her. He declares his love again, though, when she gives him the 82 letters she wrote that summer. Their romance is short lived though, when Jimmy Edwards takes a group of students, including best friend Haley James Scott, hostage and accidentally shoots Peyton in the leg. Lucas discovers Peyton and looks after her, where she is scared and tells Lucas that because she's lost a lot of blood, she wants to tell him she loves him. The two share a brief kiss, and Lucas promises to save her. Despite this, Lucas remains with Brooke, and agrees with Peyton, who begins to love Lucas again, not to tell Brooke and forget about the kiss. He and Brooke break up for good during Haley and Nathan's wedding, when she finds out about the kiss. Lucas intends to win Brooke back, but realizes soon that they aren't meant to be. He grows much closer to Peyton, who is in love with him, and eventually saves her from Derek Sommers, who nearly attacks and rapes her. After Brooke tries and fails to win Lucas back, Lucas tells Peyton, "I realized tonight that it was over between me and Brooke", to which Peyton responds, "I love you Lucas" and he replies "Oh." After the state championship, however, Lucas realizes Peyton is the one he wants, and with Brooke's blessing, kisses her. After his heart attack, he and Peyton rekindle their relationship, briefly fighting but eventually making love for the first time. In the end of the season, they are seen still happy together. It is revealed that while Peyton was in Los Angeles, Lucas came and proposed to her, but she said it was too soon, so he assumed it was over and went home. Shortly after he met Lindsey Strauss, his book editor, and started up a relationship with her. Three years later, Peyton returns to Tree Hill, throwing Lucas and Lindsey's relationship into disarray, after hints that Lucas still loves Peyton, such as kisses shared between the two. After they kiss though, Lucas proposes to Lindsey, much to Peyton's heartbreak and Lindsey's joy. At the wedding, Peyton prepares to sit through the love of her life getting married, and Lindsey realizes Lucas' new book, The Comet, was about Peyton all along. This discovery effectively ends their relationship, though the two still love each other. On a drunken rage, Lucas tells Peyton he hates her, driving her to lock herself up in her own misery. Meanwhile, Lucas grows much closer to Brooke while they bond over her fostered baby Angie. In the finale, he tells Peyton he in fact doesn't hate her. In the last shot, we see Lucas phoning someone, either Peyton, Lindsey, or Brooke, and asking the receiving person to get married in Las Vegas. It is revealed to be Peyton, the one he phoned and proposed to. She rushes to the airport, where they are once again united for the final time. Though their relationship is thrown into turmoil by the arrival of Peyton's old boyfriend, Julian Baker, their plans to get married are still intact. After stomach pains and a cancer scare, Peyton discovers she is pregnant with Lucas' baby, and shares the joyous news with him. Not long after, they discover if Peyton has the baby, she could die, leading Lucas, in his fright of losing her, to tell her to give up the baby. She refuses, causing a rift between the pair, ending with Lucas saying he'll have this baby with her. Another problem between the two occurs when Lucas finds out Peyton has been making a just-in-case death video for their unborn child, in case anything happens to her during the pregnancy. The two eventually decide to get married sooner, at the lake where the two met for the first time. After the wedding, however, he discovers Peyton lying in a pool of her blood and rushes her to hospital, where she is given immediate caesarean and falls into a coma. Lucas is then left looking after the unnamed baby girl, breaking down and begging for Peyton to return to him. She eventually wakes up, and they name the baby Sawyer Brooke Scott, after Peyton's maiden name and Brooke Davis, Peyton's best friend. A smiling Lucas also returns Peyton's car and the three drive off to live somewhere new.
After high school, Lucas' first book, "An Unkindness Of Ravens", was published. With the help of Julian Baker, Lucas wrote a screenplay version of his novel and started filming a movie. However, the film was never released. For a long time he struggled to write a second book, but eventually managed to write "Comet", a book that was influenced by how he met Peyton. He is currently travelling the world writing his third novel.
Lucas returned to Tree Hill High where he also worked as the coach of the Ravens alongside close friend Skills. However after a phone call with Lindsey Strauss he started a fight with a player of another high school team's player, resulting in him being suspended from coaching the Ravens. He later returned but after the death of Quentin both he, Skills and Nathan Scott quit.
