"Lucas Bankole, born 29 April, 1980, in Nyack, formerly New York State. He's alive. Please June. Write him something."
          - Flores to Offred [1]

Mr Flores is the assistant of the Mexican Ambassador Castillo

In the TV SeriesEdit

When Offred is left alone with Mr Flores, the ambassador's assistant, he informs her that Luke is alive, whereas Offred had assumed he was killed when they were captured at the border (though she did not witness his death, she heard shots being fired and never saw him again). Mr Flores knows Luke's full name, birthdate and birthplace, and also knows Offred's real name prior to meeting her, implying that what he says may be true. Mr Flores offers to help Offred to contact Luke by sending a message to him.[1]
