Luke Ross and Zuri Ross


Brother, sister

Portrayed By

Cameron Boyce and Skai Jackson

Luri (L/uke and Z/uri) is the platonic brother-sister pairing of Luke Ross and Zuri Ross. Zuri can be Luke’s partner-in-crime (mainly in crossways of Ravi), as seen in many episodes, but sometimes she chooses to be independent, leaving Luke to fend for himself. These two siblings seem to spend the least amount of time with each other due to that cause. Also, whenever Zuri starts to panic, she tends to blame it on Luke, so that she'll be out of the problem, but doesn't know that Luke is unaware that she's usually the main root for all accusations turned against him. Same goes with Luke. If he gets himself in a bad situation (as seen in Why Do Foils Fall in Love?), he only occasionally blames Zuri for his mess, due to him (and Ravi) panicking.
