[edit] Biography

Luka Hzujak is an archaeologist, a college professor, and an antique-collector. He is described as having a goatee beard, and is good friends with antique-dealer Victor "Sully" Sullivan. Luka has a daughter named Jadranka, more commonly known as Jada, to his first wife, who died of lung cancer while Jada was a child. Luka later remarried to a woman named Olivia, an employee at Phoenix Innovations.[1]

[edit] Uncharted: The Fourth Labyrinth

In October, Luka was found murdered in New York, decapitated and stuffed into a steamer trunk that arrived from Connecticut on a train. Following this, his daughter Jada contacts his friends Sully and Nathan "Nate" Drake to solve the mystery surrounding Luka's murder.[1]

It becomes apparent that for some time, Luka was researching labyrinths alongside Norwegian businessman Tyr Henriksen, the CEO of Phoenix Industries. However, when Luka made a startling discovery he broke away from Henriksen and began working with his peers Dr. Maynard Cheney and Ian Welch. Using research collected while working with his peers, Luka located the third ancient labyrinth crafted by Daedalus, and also deduced that there was such a thing as a mythical fourth labyrinth.[1]

However, this work threatened the mysteries of the ancient labyrinths, and Luka was soon murdered by the Protectors of the Hidden Word, an enduring society set up to protect the very secrets that Luka was trying to solve.[1]

Eventually, Jada, Nate and Sully are able to complete Luka's task, as they visit the third labyrinth on the Greek archipelago Thera and locate the fourth labyrinth in Nanjing, China. After solving the mysteries of these labyrinths, all three attend Luka's funeral back in New York.[1]
