Luis is the child that helps Celeste breathe easily and know that she isn’t a horrible mom. The exact opposite of Gabby, Luis is the quieter chid but still just as smart as his sister. Out of the two of them, he’s probably spent the most time with his mother and when he isn’t glued to his video games or comic books, he’s accompanying his mom to events and learning more about her world. While he has zero interest in politics, he likes experiencing what it is that makes his mother so busy and it gives him a good glimpse of what she’s passionate about, the kind of work that made her able to to have two kids as a single mom and still hold down her job. 

When it comes down to it, Luis is simple. He likes video games, food and weed. With those three things he never feels like he needs to be bothered and keeps his head down to do his work and whatever else is necessary. Sometimes it causes him to have a lack of ambition, something that his mother has started to lecture him on. But if he had it his way, he would get paid from sitting on his ass and critiquing ever single superhero movie ever made.


Gabriella Mendoza - The best person he knows besides his mom, of course. He loves annoying her but also knows that she could probably kill him with a look.
