|~ Biggs rationalizing molesting children|
Lucas Biggs is the main antagonist of the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode "Quarry". He is a serial child molester and murderer suspected of murdering seven-year-old Jeffrey Ronson.
He is portrayed by John Savage, who also portrayed Rudolph Ransom in Star Trek: Voyager.
Lucas Biggs is a pedophile who preys on adolescent boys, and lures them by coaching a Little League baseball team. He is also a Minor League player, traveling all over the country to play ball - and molest boys. In 1980, he molests and rapes 13-year-old Deacon Brinn, warping the boy's mind and turning him into a pedophile. Brinn later rapes seven-year-old Avery Shaw and rapes and murders Avery's friend Jeffrey Ronson. A few years later, Biggs is arrested, convicted, and sentenced to death for killing one of his victims, and suspicion falls on him for Jeffrey's murder.
In 2005, Biggs loses his last appeal, and is set for execution. A week before he is to be put to death, he is visited by Special Victims Unit detective Olivia Benson, who had received an anonymous tip about Jeffrey's murder; Benson thinks that Biggs sent it in hopes of stalling the execution. Biggs denies it and also denies killing Jeffrey. Benson later searches Biggs' old storage locker and finds hundreds of boys' baseball caps, souvenirs of his victims. Benson brings the caps to Biggs, who identifies each of the caps' owners by their smell, instantly recalling the exact date and place where he abused each boy. Benson then presents him with Jeffrey's cap, but he once again denies that he ever molested or murdered the boy; he does admit to abusing Brinn, however.
Later, after Brinn is murdered and Benson discovers that he killed Jeffrey, she visits Biggs one last time to interview him about the stalker who had blackmailing Brinn shortly before his death. Biggs identifies Shaw as Brinn's former victim, which eventually leads Benson to discover that Shaw sent her the information about Jeffrey's death, and that Brinn was actually murdered by his wife as retribution for molesting their son. During the interview, Biggs admits that he was molested as a child, and bursts into tears as he finally understands what he did to his victims. Soon afterward, he is executed.
