The relationship between siblings Luke Baker and Becky Baker began in December 1996 when Becky was born. They were originally from Florida, but moved to Canada so Luke can play hockey. They used to be friends but their friendship ended due to Luke sexually assaulting a drunk Zoë Rivas.
In Come As You Are (1), Luke and Becky transfer to Degrassi from Florida. Becky, when introducing herself to Clare Edwards and Eli Goldsworthy, mentions how they moved so her brother could pursue hockey.

In Never Ever (1), Becky finds Luke sitting outside and she proceeds to complain to him about the musical and how Degrassi isn't right. Luke tries to convinces her to leave it and upon Becky's refusal, he tells her to just to speak up because she is loud.
In Scream (1), Luke and Becky attempt to take down Romeo and Jules. They are working on signs to use during their protest of Romeo and Jules when Dallas walks in. He wants to take down the play, but in a different way as he finds the signs homophobic. Becky doesn't want to be part of a different plan, but Luke is interested.
In Scream (2), when Adam is wondering where Tristan is, he confronts them about their homophobia and calls them out on spreading it to the school. As he leaves, Becky accuses Luke of being the reason Tristan is gone and demands to know if he did something despite Luke denying kidnapping him. He is also confused about Becky defending the play, as she originally was against it.
In Building A Mystery (1), when Becky hugs Adam, Luke witnesses the intimacy between them and approaches Becky as Adam walks away. He comments on how he thinks Adam likes her, making her happy, but warns her to end whatever is going on between then. When Becky demands why, he reminds of what their parents would think if they start dating, conflicting her. When Becky invites Adam over to have dinner with the family, Becky tells her parents positive things about Adam while Luke tries to out him. Despite his attempts to out Adam as a transgender, Adam easily avoids his attempts and becomes a hit with their parents.
Conflict HistoryIn Unbelievable, Luke helps Becky with her Degrassi TV segment on teenage drinking and alcohol after Miles' party. She asks him if she's clueless when noticing people won't answer her questions about whether or not they drink or have been drunk. Luke is amused and gives her advice about how to do her story. He starts talking about the photos from Miles' party and mentions how drunk "that Zoë girl" was. Luke tells her to confront Zoë saying that she has proof of her drinking and to not give up until she has answers. During the rape investigation discovered about Zoë, Luke comforts her when she becomes overly stressed and tells her to send the cops to him if they give her any problems. They share a hug.
Later, when Becky finds out that Luke and is friend, Neil were responsible for Zoë's rape, she is devastated. She is in short term denial over it, but is forced to face reality when she borrows his cell phone, telling him that she needs to call their mother, she sees the many photos and videos of him and his friend raping her. As she watches, she is brought to tears. As her brother tries to convince her that Zoë liked it, she brings up how Zoë was too drunk to consent and refused to give the phone over to him. When he questions her loyalty, she says she hasn't decided whose side she is on yet.
Later on, when Zoë confronts Luke publicly in front of the school for raping her, she stops Zoë and says she has proof that he raped her and is handing it over the police. When Luke tries to come up to her, stunned, a group of boys gang up on him instead as Becky walks away in tears along with a distraught Zoë.In How Bizarre, the Bakers have an silent dinner until Becky becomes upset that no one talks to each other anymore. Becky says that she feels trapped, which causes Luke to angrily rage about his ankle bracelet and how he might go to jail and she's worried about "dinner conversation". He yells at her to "get real" before storming off, and his parents follow him to check up on him, leaving Becky alone at the table.
In My Hero, Becky yells at her mother that she and her father have been acting like Luke is the only one going through something, and confesses that she feels like it is all her fault. Mrs. Baker apologizes and tells her that they need to stick together as a family, but says that "sticking together" means that Becky has to testify for Luke at his trial. She asks Becky if they can count on her to do that, and says that they both know that he "didn't do anything wrong", revealing that Mrs. Baker fully believes that Luke is innocent of his sexual assault charges. Becky looks uncertain at her mother's words.
In Believe (1), at school, Becky is upset because everyone is calling her brother a rapist and watches from inside during class the massive reporters digging for details on the upcoming trial. When she calls to attention about what Mr. Simpson is going to do about the reporters and how she's upset her brother is branded a rapist, Clare takes offense and bluntly reminds her that he is titled a rapist because he raped a girl. When their teacher tries to move past the subject, she asks Becky is she is condoning what he did. Becky says he never actually raped the girl and Clare asks how she could possibly defend him. Becky says how Luke is her brother and can't just abandon him.
Back at home, Luke's lawyer drills Becky on how to answer the questions for her testimony in court to make Luke seem innocent. During court, Becky leaves when Luke is on the stand because she can't handle it, despite the fact she was scheduled to testify. She returns to school, and later confides to Drew that she is conflicted about the decision to lie for her brother or not. He says how Luke made a mistake and she can't just give up on him because she loves him and could not believe that he raped someone. He says how Adam never gave up on him and he won't judge anyone for "trying to keep their brother around".
In Believe (2), Becky is found by her mother and a park ranger after getting lost in the woods. When asked why she tried to ditch court, Becky says how she didn't know what to say on stand. Her mother tells her to tell "the truth", which is that her brother would never hurt a girl. The two hug despite Becky continuing to look uncertain. At the courthouse, Becky talks to Luke and says how he must be really scared. He says how he is terrified. He then reminds her about how when they were kids and she dropped their grandmother's ring down the sink that he covered for her. He says how this is like that and he needs her right now. Becky reminds him that she confessed to their grandmother the next day and she can't forget the video he had on his phone. He insists how the video only tells "half the story" and that Zoë wanted to fool around with him and Neil. She asks if Zoë said yes. Luke tells her that Zoë didn't, but that "a guy can just tell". Becky replies, "So... it's no big deal". Luke says how he knew he could count her. They hug, but Becky once again looks wary.
On the stand, Becky answers the lawyer's questions and when asked why she reported the sexual assault to the police, she brings up the video she saw on her brother's phone. She is asked to give details about the scene in the video. She says how Luke was on top of Zoë, kissing her and feeling her up. She is asked if Zoë was conscious during it, and she says she isn't sure. When asked if her eyes were closed or open, she answers closed. She then answers no once again if the video ever showed verbal consent given on Zoë's part to take part in the sexual relations between Luke and Neil.
Luke's lawyer then comes up to Becky on the stand and tries to insist how since the video was only 3-4 minutes, then Zoë could have consented prior to it. Becky says Zoë could have... but she didn't. The lawyer says Becky wasn't present at the party and asks her how she could possibly know Zoë didn't consent. Becky, with tears in her eyes and she stares at Luke, reveals how Luke told her that morning that Zoë never said yes. During the verdict, both Luke and Neil are found guilty of child pornography and sexual assault. As Luke hugs their parents and is sent off, Becky is crying the whole time.
