Season 2

CH (226)

Luka is first introduced in "Captain Hardrock". He first meets Marinette when she stumbles into his room, carrying a message from his mother to get him ready for the music festival. He startles her by accident and instantly finds this amusing, teasing her for her stuttered reaction. However, upon seeing her embarassment, apologizes for doing so and claims that he "often makes more sense with [his guitar]". She is marvelled by his musical talent and he lets her keep a one of his Jagged Stone guitar picks. Luka takes an immediate liking towards Marinette. Luka and Marinette establish an instant connection, which lasts throughout the episode; they repeatedly glance at each other during band testing.

Luka tests his guitar by strumming a note, but the speaker volume was so loud that it caused damage in the city, hence alerting the police. Officer Roger ordered them to turn down the volume, but Luka's mother refused, insisting that the band be allowed to play any way they wanted as it was the music festival. When he refused, she was akumatized into Captain Hardrock. Both Luka and Juleka were shocked by their mother's akumatization. Luka, along with the other members on the ship, refused to obey her orders, resulting in being chained and held prisoner in the ship's cabin.

With the help of Tikki, Marinette successfully broke the chain restraining her and Luka, setting them free. Once again, Luka is impressed. Upon hearing the captain's footsteps approaching the hold, the two set up a scene: Marinette hid in the drawer of a sliding bed, while Luka acted as bait to lure his akumatized mother away and was recaptured. Later on, he asked a now-transformed Ladybug about Marinette's whereabouts, to which she replied that Marinette was safe and the one that alerted her. Hearing this, Luka compliments Marinette, calling her "unbelievably brave".

After the defeat of Captain Hardrock, Adrien is granted permission to attend the music festival. He trips over a keyboard and gets excited after learning its model number, claiming that he can play it. Luka introduces himself to Adrien and the two forge a friendship.

In "Frozer", Luka accepts Marinette's offer to accompany her to the ice rink with Adrien and Kagami. Once there, he consistently looked after her and guided her on the ice. He appears to be skilled in skating, being able to keep balance while lifting Marinette with ease. The two share a happy moment together despite Marinette's watchful eye over Adrien and Kagami. At the end of the episode, after the akuma was captured and they all had to go home, Luka was not fazed when Marinette wanted to confront Adrien. In fact, he encouraged her to speak with him, despite his obvious feelings for her.

In "Mayura (Heroes' Day - Part 2)", Luka took part in the Paris Rebellion in effort to help Ladybug and Cat Noir defeat Scarlet Moth.

He and everyone left for the studio to reason with him, but when Bob Roth refused to negotiate let alone at admit the truth and worst of all threaten Marinette. Luka got so angry that he was akumatized by Hawk Moth into the titular villain, then took XY's voice away and had his eyes set on Bob. Marinette tried to reason with him and not go after his target in the name of revenge. Before Silencer left, he declared his love to her, soon he came across Ladybug and due to Bob's interference, he took her voice too.

Upon searching he admitted that Bob was good at hiding but knew how to flush him out, once he tricked Officer Roger into bringing Bob to him Silencer took his voice away as well. After backing him into a corner, Luka set everything up but was interrupted by a mute Ladybug and Cat Noir and fought against the hero until he noticed that Bob was gone.

Upon, hearing Cat Noir believe that he lost Ladybug, he used her voice to lure him out unaware he was playing into the heroes trap by activating the heroine's Lucky Charm.

But Luka went on stage he was asked by Marinette if he really meant what he said as Silencer, Luka answers that he doesn't remember and yet hoped he didn't say anything bad. When she replied that he didn't; Luka was relieved and unknowingly said the same love confession he admitted to her when he was akumatized before leaving to perform with his band.
