After he and his father, Jonas, moved from Louisiana and settled in Mystic Falls, both Jonas and Luka took a strong interest in Bonnie, by her being a witch too.

After they are acquainted with one another, they later meet again at the Mystic Grill, where Luka introduces his father, Jonas. However, Bonnie soon becomes frightful of the Martins, after Jonas asks her about her Salem ancestors. It is later revealed that Luka and his father are male witches, also known as warlocks. Excited to meet another witch her age, Bonnie and Luka begin spending more time with one another, they had likings for each other: teaching and training each other about magic and their witch heritage.
After Bonnie discovers that Luka and his father are agents of an original vampire named Elijah, Bonnie kidnaps Luka in order to perform a spell that would force Luka into telling her his reason for working with Elijah. He reveals how they desired to kill Klaus, after he kidnapped his sister. Desperate to break the curse, Klaus has forced generations of witches to finding a way to break the curse without the doppelgänger sacrifice.
In The House Guest, he and his father perform a spell that allows him to project himself in an astral form in order to resurrect Elijah, whom Damon, Stefan and Elena had previously killed. But before he could accomplish his goal, Katherine stopped him, and Damon set him on fire, by torching him with a flamethrower.
