Detective Spencer of the Port Charles Police Department
is the first child of Luke and
Spencer. Though his intentions are honorable, evil seems destined to cross his
path. Lucky has his father's sense of adventure and his motherís
sensibility. Although his relationship with his mother is stable, he has a
rather tumultuous history with his father. Much of his early life with his
parents was spent on the run from mobster Frank Smith.
Lucky has two siblings: an older half-brother, Prince Nikolas Cassadine,
and a younger sister, Leslie Lu Spencer (known as Lulu). Nikolas and Lucky
met when their baby sister needed a bone marrow transplant. Before that,
Lucky did not even know that he had a brother. Immediately, they
became entangled in the Spencer/Cassadine hostility. Over time, they grew
close and agreed that the feud would end with them. Later, Lucky found
out that he had another brother, Ethan, from Luke's affair with Holly. Ethan
is a good person but not as clean cut or honest as Lucky. He's more like
Luke: a con artist and thief.
After moving to Port Charles when he was still pretty young, Lucky was
good friends with Robin Scorpio and
Emily Quartermaine. His dog Foster was dating
Emily's dog, Annabelle, and they had puppies. He was also friends with his
cousin Sly Eckert for a time.
Elizabeth Webber has been the love of Luckyís life. As teens, friendship
grew into love as Lucky helped Elizabeth recover from rape. They pledged
their lives to each other in an abandoned church. Their love survived
separation, such as when Lucky was thought to be dead. It survived while he
was kidnapped and then brainwashed by Helena Cassadine.
Over the years, Lucky was romantically linked to Sarah Webber, Summer
Holloway, and Emily Quartermaine. Lucky and Elizabeth managed to remain friends
until they fell in love again while planning Nikolas and Emilyís wedding. Lucky
and Elizabeth were married, and Lucky is step-father to Cameron, her son with
Zander Smith. Later, Elizabeth had Jake, who was really mobster Jason's
child, but they raised him as Lucky's so that no one would target Jake. Later,
Elizabeth had another child, Aiden. They though it was Nikolas' son, but
eventually they figured out that Aiden is Lucky's son.
Lucky has had his share of difficult times, such as when he was near
death after having been shot while saving Emily. He severely injured his
back while trying to save Elizabeth. After his surgery ,he became addicted
to pain killers. His actions caused him to lose his family and friends. He
completed rehabilitation and was reinstated to the police force. He took up
with Maxie for a time, and that's when Elizabeth had her one-night stand
with Jason. Later, she also had an affair with Nikolas, which broke up their
Lucky and Elizabeth consoled each other when their son Jake was killed in
a tragic accident. They clearly still had feelings for each other. Lucky got
hooked on drugs while undercover, and Elizabeth helped him get clean again.
He was engaged to Siobhan, but she was murdered. Even though they
still had feelings for each other, Lucky left town in 2011.
Lucky is strong, loyal, usually trustworthy, and a good person. He seemed to
be the opposite of his father, Luke, who has no trouble breaking the law, lying,
drinking, or doing whatever he pleases. Luke was very disappointed when
Lucky joined the police force because he does not trust cops. Lucky seemed
to take more after this mother, Laura. It wasn't until Lucky's drug
addiction that less admirable characteristic came out, such as lying, cheating,
and stealing. He was basically the archetypal good guy until then, and
then he returned to being the good guy later on.
Lucky and his father had a huge fight after Jake's death when it was
discovered that Luke had run over the toddler. Lucky tried to get Luke to
admit that his drinking was the cause. Luke didn't really admit it, and
instead he left town. He did cut down on his drinking, though. Luke and
Lucky managed to mend fences after a while.
