Lincoln Saxon Cole was one of the only two children of a single mother who worked hard and played harder most of their childhood in London, England. There was no doubt about the fact she would have only had one if she hadn't gotten two for the price of one with Lexie and then Lincoln who followed 2.5 minutes later. Because of their mother's wild ways, the twins found themselves more frequently in the care of their grandmother. Still, without a consistent parental figure beyond Nana, they learned to fend for themselves quickly and both had a reckless streak a mile wide. Lexie was headstrong and rebellious, wanting to figure life out by experiencing it for herself. Lincoln was very much an independent soul too who played by his own rules and wouldn't take shit off anyone. He grew into his fabulous bitch side at an early age, and both twins, having an extremely close relationship, would kill to protect each other. Lexie tried weed and booze for the first time at thirteen, with her mother, but despite the fact that she wasn't the most responsible parent, there was no doubt that her mom loved her kids. She worked herself to the bone to try and provide for them, and partying was the one thing she did for herself to try and relieve some of the stress. Miraculously, she never got pregnant again, but she was close to Lexie growing up, who was treated much more like a friend than a daughter. In the end, she fell in love with an American businessman, married him in a quickie wedding and uprooted the herself and the twins to live in LA.
It didn't last. It was never going to last. He went back to his ex-wife and she couldn't ditch her partying habits. The upheaval affected the twins in different ways. Lincoln was always a handful. He was diagnosed with ADHD at a young age, always getting into everything. He settled when he was medicated for it, but once he hit his teens and realised the world was his oyster, he ditched the meds and replaced them with weed and cigarettes. In a rude twist of fate from The Powers That Be, Lincoln's first attempt at hard drugs was either a bad cut or he had a severe allergic reaction and landed in hospital in the ICU the first bender he went on. Needless to say, he couldn't easily be the party animal his mother was...
Lexie, on the other hand, loved to party but didn't want to end up in the same messes her mother got herself into. Without their nana on hand to help out, Lexie stepped up into the parental role to take care of Lincoln. She became the adult in her family in her teenage years, while her mom continued to live like a teenager and her brother's existence was hanging out with mates getting high, sleeping around, fast cars, and dancing up a storm at gay bars. Lincoln came out to Emily when he was fourteen when he lost his virginity to an 18 year old guy he hooked up with. It wasn't long before Lexie realised she was a lesbian, with absolutely no sexual attraction to men at all. She was definitely a boobs type of girl.
Lexie made the conscious decision to get her grades up in school with an aim to going to college. She didn't exactly know what she wanted to study in college, but she figured she would cross that bridge when she came to it. It was her senior year of high school that would ultimately set her on the pathway to her future career. She met a guy called Quinn and a close friendship developed. Quinn was gay and closeted, and Lexie was the first person he came out to. Guilt would eventually cripple her for ultimately encouraging him to come out, telling him she and Lincoln had both done it and it was exhilerating freedom. Quinn wouldn't have the same luck as the twins. His conservative family disowned him and a friend of his father's hunted him down one night and bashed him within an inch of his life for being gay. Quinn never really recovered from the ordeal and struggling to be 'out', took his own life by driving his car off a bridge. The tragedy stuck with her and she began to fear not for her safety, but Lincoln's. She didn't apply for any colleges in LA, instead deciding she had to get out of the place that destroyed her best friend and ended up receiving an offer to study social and criminal justice, with aim of becoming a cop.
When Lexie went to New York, her twin brother just followed her. Luckily they were very close because she didn't really have a choice in the matter. He had no intentions of hanging off her like a bad smell while she was trying to live her life. In fact, Lincoln was the sort of guy who seemed to land on his feet whatever he did and planned to just see what way the cookie crumbled in the Big Apple. He crashed with Lexie very briefly when they first arrived in New York, and just three weeks later, he was "discovered" by Modelling Agent, Charlotte Davison. She told him he had the right look she was searching for, and very soon after, he was in a Calvin Klein campaign with Emilio Alvarez. With that, he was thrust forcefully into the glamorous, hectic and often scandalous New York and beyond fashion world.
Now, he has just been signed as one of the newest faces of Rian Ambrose's label, Ambrosiere. He has met crazy amounts of people and connections through his job and never actually had to strive to get to where he is today. He's still a bit of a wild child, but he's in good company in the industry. He remains extremely close to Lexie, even if his work as a model and her job as a Private Investigator keep them apart and often in different countries. They never lose touch, and Lincoln has even gotten savvy with aliases and disguises himself so he can catch up with her when she's away on jobs. By default, Lincoln struck up a very close friendship with Lexie's work partner and now insta-husband, Clint Chevalier. They've slept together numerous times, and Clint, along with his cousin, Lorenzo and Lorenzo's best friend, Jude, are his closest friends in the whole world (who he, early in the piece, nicknamed the "Fabulous Foursome"). He's slept with Clint and Jude, often both of them together, but Lorenzo was always the more reserved and in a committed relationship.
After a world tour showcasing the latest Ambrosiere line, Lincoln is back in New York and about to get a sharp dose of reality when he hears everything that has gone down with his sister and his friends in his absence.
I'm so fierce that it's so nuts
I live, to be model thin
Dress me, I'm your mannequin
J'adore Vivienne Habillez-moi
Gucci, Fendi et Prada.
Valentino, Armani too.
Merde, I love them Jimmy Choo."
