Luke Callindor was born to be a hero.  At least that’s what he was told since he comes from the famous Callindor lineage.  Since childhood, he has been trained in combat, tracking, monster lore, and various wilderness.  By the time Luke turns eighteen, he has made up his mind to become an adventurer.  Running away from home with his loyal dog, Stiletto, he has no idea what he is getting himself into.  A famous name can only get him so far before experience and skills can finish the job.

Being the first hero who appears in the Legends of Windemere series, Luke is shown at the beginning of his adventurers.  He is cocky, stubborn, and still working with the idea that destiny is in his favor when he lies to get his first adventure.  Pitted against a demonic assassin and under the suspicious eye of a famous mercenary, Luke quickly realizes that he may have made a mistake. It doesn’t take long for him to learn that trustworthy friends are the key to his survival.  This is only his first lesson and he continues to grow as his story progresses alongside the other destined heroes.

Throughout the series, Luke Callindor relies on his courage and ability to think on his feet more than being tactical.  He is spontaneous and unpredictable to both his enemies and allies, which has managed to keep him alive even in the most challenging situations.  Luke is also a very quick at learning new skills and adapting, which is an ability that he is not entirely aware of.  He works off instinct when backed into a corner or he sees someone in danger.  Growing up with dreams of heroism, he will routinely risk his life to save his friends or even total strangers from danger.  As admirable as this is, his enemies know that this can be used against him.
