According to Marvel’s announcement, Lincoln is “a charismatic Inhuman… who has an important part to play in Skye’s understanding the true extent of her transformation”.

“With the revelations surrounding Skye’s true identity in the Winter Finale, we knew we’d be introducing more Inhumans as our story progressed,” says Executive Producer and Marvel’s Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb. “The charming energy Luke brings to the role that will make him a character to watch as we continue our season.”
