Luke O'Neil (ルーク・オニール Rūku Onīru?) is one of the two main characters in Time Crisis 5. As a next-generation V.S.S.E. agent partnered with Marc Godart, he is supported in the air by Catherine Ricci.


Luke has blonde shoulder-length shaggy hair covered with white baseball cap and green eyes, and has tattoos on both his arms and hands.

Luke wears a gray tanktop covered with a red sleeveless zipped vest that has a white skull picture and V.S.S.E. logos. He wears white shorts with pale gray color addition. He wears green and yellow socks and a pair of red sneakers. He also wears a two pale-colors beaded necklaces, a brown handband with white spikes on right wrist and a brown rubbered handband on left wrist.


Luke and Marc are well-known in the V.S.S.E. for having superhuman speed. To ensure newer agents are capable of meeting more stringent challenges against tougher enemies, Luke and Marc are issued with gas-actuated pistols (a V.S.S.E.-modified IMI Desert Eagle Mark XIX) carrying 9 .50 AE rounds per magazine in addition to the required battery and aptitude-oriented Crisis mission training.

Luke and Marc were at a hotel to help their direct officer, Robert Baxter retrieve a silver briefcase (under possession by Wild Dog) left behind by a murdered V.S.S.E. auditor three months prior to the events of the game. When Luke and Marc attacked the drudges, their cover was blown, and the agents had to fight Wild Dog throughout the air and land with helicopters and motorcycles. Wild Dog ejected the briefcase out-of-range before blowing himself up for the fourth time.

The briefcase was retrieved by Keith Martin in a deserted island containing Wild Dog's factory as one of its facilities, and its contents are data revealing that their superior Robert is the traitor among the V.S.S.E.. With Keith taking over as the partners' direct officer, Luke and Marc eventually put a stop to the now treacherous Robert's madness as they send him falling off a cargo plane ready to fire a drug-filled missile, but not before Robert shoots the plane's engine to send it crashing down into the ocean. Before stopping Robert, Luke and Marc had to fight Wild Fang, who is armed with a modified right leg which can fire missiles and solar generators attached to his back which can create a solar energy orb, inside a cave.


As the youngest of the franchise's protagonists, Luke tends to be impatient and talkative, often showing excessive desperation when showing willingness to complete his task at hand given to him from the directorship, surpassing Evan Bernard's. Keith didn't like Luke's impatience, as evidenced in a scene during the True Mastermind expansion of Time Crisis 5. Luke tends to be attached a bit too closely to Catherine, but in spite of his impatient demeanor, Luke is up to any challenge he and Marc are given.

  • Luke is currently the only V.S.S.E. agent who does not wear a jacket or coat.
  • Luke is also the only protagonist in the series with tattoos.
  • Luke's vest and the skull symbol resemble that of the 1988 TAD Corporation video game Cabal (published by Taito in Japan and Fabtek in North America and Europe) because the protagonists of Cabal wear vests and the skull symbol is the symbol of Cabal main menu screen.
  • Luke and Marc, like Keith and Robert, are dispatched with only handguns while obtaining other weapons from the enemy. Unlike Keith and Robert, Luke and Marc kept their commandeered weapons throughout the mission (the former two agents only used the submachine guns against wheeled armored vehicles).
  • Luke's English voice actor is Dominic Allen, who was previously the voice of Eric Morgan (the player 1 character) from Deadstorm Pirates.
