Lesley Lu "Lulu" Spencer by
Lulu (AKA Lesley Lu) had a very troubled childhood. Her parents were together when she
was very young, but they split up not much later. Lulu had a deadly
bone marrow disease when she was a baby, so her brother
Nikolas had to come
to Port Charles for the first time, in order to donate bone marrow and save
her life. This gave them a great bond to start with, and they have had a
great relationship ever since. Lulu's mother, Laura, had mental
illness and went into a catatonic state when Lulu was still very young, so
she grew up without her mother. Luke, her father, was not very good at
parenting and had a very difficult time with Laura's death, so he did not
really raise Lulu but left her with Laura's mother, Lesley (her namesake).
Lulu's brother Lucky was the only constant in her life besides her
grandmother. Later, Lulu found out that she had another brother, Ethan.
As a teenager, Lulu became hard for Lesley to handle, so she
dumped Lulu with Luke, who was living at the Quartermaine mansion.
Luke still did not want to be a father, but he was forced into being one
more than before. His wife Tracy has helped him as much as possible
for her (she's not a very good mother figure, either, but she and Lulu came
to an understanding eventually). Lulu was a bit of a trouble maker at
first because she fell hard for Tracy's son Dillon, even though Dillon was
already in love with Georgie. She manipulated the situation so that
Georgie would catch her and Dillon having sex and break up with him.
However, Dillon loved Georgie and not Lulu. Lulu found herself
pregnant. Knowing she was not ready to be a mother, she had an abortion.
This was after talking with everyone and thinking about it a lot on her own.
She was sad about it for a while, even though she knew it was the right
thing to do, but eventually she moved on. She has had quite a few
young guys chasing after her, so she is more confident.
Laura woke up in
November of 2006 for a brief period, so Lulu did get to speak with her
mother and get to know her a little bit before she went back to being
catatonic, so this also helped her grow up. Later on, Laura did wake up for
real, so Lulu got to spend some time with her before she left town to
continue her medical treatments. Lulu and her brothers keep in touch with
her. All of Lulu's brothers have left town now. She thinks right now that
Ethan is not really her brother because Luke lied that
Robert is really his
Lulu has had many friends,
including Maxie, Georgie, Dillon,
Jason, and Spinelli. She also is
close to Elizabeth, her ex-sister-in-law. Her aunt
Carly is her confidante
and has given her advice. Her father and "step-monster" Tracy have also
helped her with advice. Lulu attended college and matured, but she
still sometimes headstrong and acts without thinking. Lulu has
sometimes gotten involved in other people's adventures or messes, especially
Luke and Maxie.
Lulu killed Logan Hayes by
accident one night when he was attacking Maxie and she went to help her. She
briefly had a drinking problem in 2011.
Lulu took up with mobster's son
Johnny for a while, but he
broke it off when he felt that he was putting her in danger. They even went
on the run for awhile, like her parents Luke and Laura did. She finally met
the love of her life, cop Dante. They were married in 2011 and have mostly
been very happy. She is working at the PCPD with him. Lulu worked with
Maxie for a while at Crimson, but it was not her dream job. She seems
to enjoy helping Dante solve crimes.
