Name: Lucas Carter
Age: 16
Appearance: Rusty copper hair that he always wears in tall spikes. Bright blue eyes. Big smile, tan skin. He is built like a soccer player and is about 6'1". He has a burn scar up the inside of his left arm (wrist to elbow) because of a childhood accident.
Things you know about the character so far: He is Caoimhe's best friend (and maybe more). He's been by her side for all these years as her family and his plot against the Long family, trying to bring them down and save Caoimhe's twin, Cadhla. He's a pretty happy guy and sometimes just smiles or chuckles for no apparent reason. He likes to make people happy, but he won't compromise himself. When he needs to be, he knows how to be serioues (mostly) and he is very dependable, even if he doesn't always seem to be. He is totally in love with Caoimhe, but she's kinda oblivious for the most part. He gets frustrated by that but he doesn't burst..often.
Things you know about the character's past: His family has been closely tied to the Tadghan family for ages. As in, centuries. He was 'friends' with the twins when they were all just infants. Then, when the Long family (a long-time enemy) attacked and wreaked havoc on the Tadghan and Carter family, he got closer to Caoimhe. They were practically inseperable after Cadhla was stolen. Most of his past is just normal childhood stuff and little "missions" where he and his siblings (along with Caoimhe's other siblings and she) learned surveillance and other skills related to espionage.
Where you think the character will end up: Finally telling Caoimhe he likes her because he's too impatient to wait any longer. Injured and taken by the Longs and their allies (I plan this to be at least two books, so that would be the end of the first).
What you want help with: Everything he needs. Quirks, flaws, all that.

You know...that would actually fit Lucas very well.
