Sir Stephen Luke is a Draculian micronationalist and statesman, serving as the current Vice President and a Major in the Air Corps. of the Commonwealth of Dracul. On 25 September 2017, Luke helped establish the Commonwealth of Dracul with Co-founders Dmitri Howie and Mark Millner.
Stephen Luke was born on 13 February 1991 in the City of Zimnicea, Romania as the only child. At six weeks old, Luke was adopted by Americans, who brought him to their home in Galveston, Texas for a better life. Luke began his interest in politics and history, while attending High School in Friendswood.
Luke began his interest in Micronations in 2016, while watching YouTube Videos and reading forums. It wasn't until the end of 2017 when Luke proposed to founder Dmitri Howie, about the idea of creating their own micronation.
When Luke started Dracul in 2017 with co-founder Dmitri Howie, Luke decided that he'd rather work behind the scenes, before serving in a higher position. Throughout most of his time as VP, he led Dracul as "Acting President", since Howie mostly remained inactive. In 2020, Luke decided to run in the 2021 elections as a Presidential Candidate, with his running mate Whisper Williams as his Vice Presidential Candidate. After some negotiation, Luke eventually decided, at the end of 2020, to run his campaign on the Dracul Conservative Party ticket after having been asked to by party leader Charles Ross.
2021 Presidential Candidacy
Luke announced his 2021 Presidential Candidacy in 2020, stating he would "Jumpstart Dracul for Good", due to a high level of inactivity on the part of Government Officials and Citizens. Although his plans haven't fully been announced, Luke saw his Vice Presidency as a true success.
Outside of micronationalism, Stephen Luke spends most of his time working in nonprofit organizations and storm spotting for the National Weather Service. Currently, Luke works as a security guard at a shopping mall in Houston, Texas.
Stephen Luke planned on becoming a police officer since high school in 2010. In 2011 and 2019, Luke attended police academies to complete that goal. Unfortunately due to health reasons, Luke resigned before graduation.
U.S. Coast Guard
Stephen Luke served in the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary from 2011 to 2013. He mostly worked as a public affairs member, teaching water safety and vessel inspections to the general public.
