Lucas Sinclair: Spy

Lucas Sinclair was made to be a spy and here’s why.

Who else on the show climbed into a tree to see what the shady people at the Hawkins National Laboratory were doing? No one. Only Lucas. Sure, he got caught, but he quickly analyzed the situation, got on his bike, and zoomed his butt out of there to get help.

Also, he already has skills using convert communication systems. His whole group of friends communicates via walkie talkies for goodness sake.

He’s also great at keeping secrets. His family has no idea what he’s been getting himself into. Yes, he told Max what happened to them all the year before, but that just shows his ability to know who to trust. He knows when to lie and when to tell the truth, and while at the moment that only applies to his friends, that could be adapted as he grows older.

He has helped kill multiple monsters and no one besides his friends are aware of any of it. He would be the perfect spy. He could have a normal life during the day and then be protecting government secrets at night.

He can even bust out his signature camouflage bandana while on missions. His spy buddies will ask him the story behind the bandana, and Lucas will look at them with a straight face and say “If I told you, I’d have to kill you.”

He is also naturally wary of new, different things. He was the most suspicious of Eleven when she first arrived and didn’t trust her until he was sure she wasn’t dangerous. He’s also logical and not prone to fantasize or be dramatic about events. He’s a realist and that will take him a long way as a spy.
