He also plays a role in Danganronpa: Infinite Despair 0/2 -Death & Rebirth- as a main character.

He wears two broaches on his suit that are the Lowell Mobster family insignia and the Amano Mobster Family insignia to show his loyalty to both families.

During his time at Hope's Peak Academy, he wore the standard uniform which consisted of a blue blazer, red tie (as he was a second year student during -Death & Rebirth-) and a pair of navy blue pants with black dress shoes, he was the only one out of his entire class to wear his uniform properly.
Lucas is around 18-20 years old in Danganronpa: Infinite Despair 2, while in Danganronpa: Infinite Despair 3 -The Final Fall of Despair- he is confirmed 21 years old.
Lucas in contrast to the more serious Patrick is more easy going when he's not on a hit, Lucas will often joke around and try to lighten the mood, he is also fairly flirty towards females as he usually hits on Rose Belnades or other female students during his time at Hope's Peak Academy, Lucas is also a very loyal friend and hates traitors. As he believes that they are worse than scum.
Like Patrick and Pete, he believes that people can build talent if they work hard enough and he considers himself proof that talent can be built up.
When he's on a hit however, he is a cold killer and won't let anything come between him and a target as he was on an assignment he is willing to leave behind anyone if they are hindering him and doesn't mind if innocents are dragged into the conflict although he does try to keep them out if he can.
Lucas is greatly respected and feared in Hope's Peak Academy and in the Hope's City Liberation Front.
Skills and Abilities
Super High School Level Hitman
As a Hitman, Lucas is skilled in the art of the kill and can handle various weapons, like Patrick and Pete he is able to clean up a body and make it look like no one even existed in the first place, he is fairly athletic and he can easily outrun his opponents when security or their guards come for him or he will pick them off one-by-one in a 'game'.
Because of his title, he is greatly skilled in stealth and often hides from his targets before going in for the kill, his combat skills allowed him to stand against both Mukuro Ikusaba (when she tired to attack him before The Tragedy started) who was the Super High School Level Solider and Peko Pekoyama the Super High School Level Swordswoman (who attempted to kill Patrick and Pete).
Before The Tragedy
Lucas (birth name: Makoto) was born into the Amano Mobster Family as the group's last hope to rise from the ashes after it was nearly destroyed by the Kuzuryuu Clan in the late 1980s and early 1990s, as his father Genji who was the mob's leader faked his own death and moved to America with his family with help from his old friend Adrian James Lowell the leader of the Irish Mob in Boston, and his grandfather became the butler to the Lowell Family as payment for the safety of the Amano Clan even though Adrian declined his offer many times.
Growing up, Makoto was in a stable home and was told who his enemies were and was trained by his father in basic combat and martial arts so he could assassinate the heir to the Kuzuryuu Clan and rebuild their mob. However around the time he was eleven he had caught wind of his grandfather being the butler to the Lowell Family and before his father could explain why, he went to assassinate the heirs to the Lowell Family for revenge as he thought they enslaved him.
As he was about to strike Patrick James and James Peter Lowell with his hidden knife, he was disarmed by Patrick and tackled to the ground and restrained by the larger boy, as Pete ran to get their father and Patrick was about to kill Makoto, he was stopped by Adrian and Makoto's grandfather who revealed why he was acting as the butler to the Lowell Family, after this, Patrick, Pete and Makoto became friends as Adrian and his grandfather decided to train him to become the acting bodyguard and personal hitman to Patrick and Pete and to help him gain his revenge on the Kuzuryuu Clan.
He shed his name as Makoto and chose the name Lucas in honor of Patrick and Pete's great-grandfather who started the Lowell Mob Family in the 1920s and in order to fit in Boston, Lucas was made Patrick's 'Consigliere' or advisor.
Events of Danganronpa: Syndicate:
Around the time he was fifteen along with the Lowell twins, Adrian departed to Ireland for a family meeting, a Yakuza Clan, a rival mobster family, a criminal syndicate and three street gangs toppled the Lowell Family and removed them from power. Patrick, enraged by what happened gathered his family, friends and displaced citizens of the city to fight back against the invaders,
Lucas helped his friends kill the leaders of the rival gangs and managed to restore the mobsters back into power just before Adrian returned home, this allowed Patrick to be scouted as the Super High School Level Mobster- a title that was shelved since the 1940s- as part of Class 65 of Hope's Peak Academy while Pete became the Super High School Level Prankster, Lucas himself became the Super High School Level Hitman after successfully preventing an assassination attempt by Peko Pekoyama on Patrick's life.
His school before attending Hope's Peak Academy was St. Francis Academy, a private school and a prestigious school that is well known like Hope's Peak Academy which he attended with Patrick and Pete.

In his second year of Hope's Peak life, during the meeting of the Student Councils, Lucas accompanied Patrick as he was his bodyguard and he would act as a translator for the American and Japanese councils, he was later attacked by a disguised Mukuro Ikusaba who would later attack Patrick as well. After the meeting was cancelled due to the hostilities the European Student Council had towards the Japanese Branch and the disappearance of the Japanese Student Council, the North American Student Council returned home, following that two major events occurred, first was the attempted Mutual Killing game of the North American Student Council which he wasn't part of and the decisive Massacre of Hope's Peak Academy, an event he was thrown in as he was in the old school building along with Patrick and one of their friends Laura Ayanami.
After that, The Tragedy started and he joined Patrick to kill the 'Source of Despair' and save the world. The two would be accompanied by many survivors such as Hajime Yamada, the younger brother to Class 78-A's Hifumi Yamada and his friends, Hiroshi Nobu a survivor who managed to escape before the Mutual Killing Game of Class 78-B began and a group of other survivors. They also came into conflict with the Remnant's of Despair, he and Patrick would fight Fuyuhiko, his mobster monokuma men and Peko where Lucas declared he would kill Fuyuhiko in the name of the Amano Family and he was nearly close too killing Fuyuhiko and Peko with help from Patrick.
