Lukáš Banik is a character in the interactive AAR "A Federation of Equals".
Born into a middle class Slovak family, Lukáš’ family was involved with the Slovak independence movement with his father, Mikoláš, having been a member of the Slovak Provisional Assembly during its brief time of existence in 1854. After graduating from the University of Vienna with a degree in law, Lukáš ran for a seat in the Slovak Parliament in 1864 and won, subsequently serving until 1872 when he became a Councillor for Slovakia, which he has been since. As a more moderate member of the RU, Lukáš looks to see the passage of further social reforms while also supporting the maintenance of a strong military.
