Brief Character History

Brook Lynn Ashton was named after Brooklyn, New York, where her mother and father had spent many happy times together. However, at the time of her birth, Brook Lynn's parents were estranged. Lois had returned to her family in Bensonhurst after she realized she didn't want her daughter growing up around the Quartermaines. Her feelings were cemented after Ned failed in his attempts to make Lois and their recording business his first priority. He returned to ELQ, and Lois returned to her family. Lois took Brook Lynn to meet Ned a few months after she was born. Although Lois claimed she hadn't shown up to reconcile with Ned, it was clear Lois and Ned were still in love with each other. But after she overheard him blackmailing his cousin Justus Ward, Lois left town with her daughter.

Ned saw his daughter on birthdays and introduced her to Chloe Morgan when he was married to her. Brook Lynn adored Chloe and was not thrilled to learn several months later that Alexis had become Ned's new love. She later grew to like Alexis, but she couldn't understand what was happening when Alexis left her father at the altar.

In early 2004, Brook Lynn returned to Port Charles calling herself "Lynn." After haunting L&B's studio with her talented singing voice, she became friends with Georgie Jones and Dillon Quartermaine, who was unaware that he was Lynn's uncle. Impressed by her voice, they persuaded her to record a demo tape, but Lynn remained adamant that she only sang for the joy of it and didn't want to profit from it, which was something her mother wanted her to do. Lynn's true identity, and ties to the Quartermaines were revealed when a man claiming to be her father attempted to take her home to her mother. She escaped by stealing his car, but Dillon reported the incident to the cops, and they wound up back at the Quartermaines'.

Lois had hired the man to retrieve her daughter because she wanted to take Brook Lynn back to Bensonhurst with her, but Ned persuaded her to let Brook Lynn stay. Ned invited Lois to stay in town too. Lois repeatedly tried to convince Brook Lynn that she should sing professionally, but each time they ended up in a fight. Seeing how hard Brook Lynn fought her mother, Ned took a different approach. He persuaded Brook Lynn to sing with him just for fun. Brook Lynn agreed, but she remained strongly opposed to singing professionally. She was even willing to let Sage Alcazar sing one of her songs rather than sing it herself.

Mother and daughter had the same idea of delivering roses to Edward Quartermaine after Lila Quartermaine passed away. Each of them regretted the fact that Brook Lynn had never gotten to know great-grandmother better before Lila's death. Brook Lynn finally sang for a crowd at her great-grandmother's funeral. Later, Brook Lynn misinterpreted the situation when Lois tried to convey how proud she was of her daughter. Believing that Lois wanted to capitalize on the event, Brook Lynn yelled at Lois, who took off, hurt by her daughter's words.

Brook Lynn's relationship with her mother continued to deteriorate when Lois became involved with international arms dealer Lorenzo Alcazar. Brook Lynn hated that her mother would date a thug when Brook Lynn was always told not to. In an attempt to give her mother a taste of her own medicine, Brook Lynn began getting cozy with Diego Sanchez. Diego had made his desire to work for mob boss Sonny Corinthos obvious to anyone who would listen, and Lois wasn't a fool. Diego and Brook Lynn grew closer when Brook Lynn walked in on her mother and Lorenzo in bed together. Enraged, Brook Lynn ran away with Diego, where the two escaped to Mexico to find Diego's sister, Maria.

Georgie and Dillon accompanied Diego and Brook Lynn, and the four were arrested when Maria denied knowing Diego and let her fiancé arrest the group of teenagers. Later, Maria had them released and warned Diego to get out of Port Charles. Brook Lynn and Diego made it their mission to discover why Maria didn't want Diego in Port Charles. Working together, they determined that Sonny must have killed Diego's father, and Diego decided to find out why. Dressing as a delivery girl, Brook Lynn attempted to divert Sonny's loyal bodyguard Max Giambetti's attention while Diego attempted to break into Sonny's apartment. Sam McCall caught the two before they could enter the apartment. Jason Morgan agreed to help Diego find out if Sonny had had anything to do with the murder of Diego's father.

Diego was revealed to be the son of Luis Alcazar, Lorenzo's deceased identical twin brother, but Diego and Brook Lynn didn't last long because he soon developed an interest in Maxie Jones. After graduating from high school, Brook Lynn enrolled at Port Charles University -- and ended up having Maxie as a roommate. After being drugged at a party, Brook learned there were nude pictures of her circulating on the Internet and elsewhere. She began to suspect that Diego might have been responsible, but he kept giving all the right answers for every one of her questions. Ultimately, Brook Lynn was right: Diego had indeed been stalking her as payback because he blamed Brook Lynn -- and others -- for his cousin Sage's tragic death during a power outage when the teens had locked Sage in a freezer and made her easy pray for serial killer Mary Bishop.

A short while later, Brook Lynn decided to leave Port Charles and join her mother in New York so that she could pursue a music career.

In 2010, Brook Lynn was cut off from her trust fund because she had gotten in trouble for credit card fraud. Brook Lynn refused to turn to Edward and her grandmother, Tracy Quartermaine, for help because they wanted her to enroll in college and study business, instead of pursing a music career. When Carly Corinthos caught Brook Lynn hustling people for money in the park, she offered Brook Lynn the opportunity to make quick money in exchange for seducing Dante Falconeri away from Carly's cousin Lulu Spencer.

Carly hired Brook Lynn to sing at Metro Court Restaurant as a cover story to explain their meetings. Dante and Brook Lynn were friends for their days living in Bensonhurst, and Lulu was immediately jealous of their friendship. Carly arranged for Brook Lynn to move in across the hall from Dante, which increased Lulu's insecurities. Brook Lynn made herself at home in Dante's apartment, and she reminisced about the "old days" in Bensonhurst with Dante and his mother Olivia Falconeri.

Although Brook Lynn planned to seduce Dante, she was interested in Johnny Zacchara and flirted with him. Johnny was involved with Olivia, and Carly warned Brook Lynn to stay away from him. Carly demanded that Brook Lynn make progress with Dante, and the two women staged an argument for Lulu's benefit. They planted the idea in Lulu's head that Dante was destined to cheat because, as Sonny's son, cheating was a part of his DNA.

Brook Lynn arranged for Dante to find her locked out of her apartment, wearing only a towel. When Dante did not make a move despite Brook Lynn's obvious interest, Brook Lynn realized that he truly loved Lulu. Desperate to hold up her end of the bargain, Brook Lynn resorted to drugging Dante's drink, and she arranged for Lulu to find them in a compromising position. Lulu was upset with Dante, but she quickly realized that he had been drugged. Brook Lynn knew that she had been caught, so she told Lulu about the deal with Carly. Things backfired for Brook Lynn when Carly was able to turn the blame back onto Brook Lynn.

Alone and broke with a damaged reputation, Brook Lynn almost turned to the Quartermaines for help. However, a chance encounter with Nikolas Cassadine provided her with another option. He hired Brook Lynn to be his date for business functions. She moved into Wyndemere and accompanied Nikolas to various events. They also attended Luke Spencer and Tracy's wedding together, as well as Brenda Barrett and Sonny's wedding.

Just as Brook Lynn began to develop romantic feelings for Nikolas, Liz Webber made it clear that she was also interested in a relationship with him. Nikolas and Liz had had a child together named Aiden, and Liz used their son to get closer to Nikolas. Every time Nikolas and Brook Lynn started to get close, Liz interrupted them. When Liz arranged a special dinner for Nikolas, Brook Lynn conveniently got a flat tire in front of Liz's house. Nikolas thanked Brook Lynn for causing his evening with Liz to end early.

Eventually, Nikolas and Brook Lynn admitted they had feelings for one another, and they made love. Liz walked in on an intimate moment. Furious, Liz decided that Aiden could not spend time at Wyndemere if Brook Lynn was present, but Nikolas stood up for Brook Lynn.

When Liz's son Jake was killed in a tragic hit and run, Nikolas knew that he needed to focus on helping his brother Lucky Spencer and Liz grieve their loss. Nikolas encouraged Brook Lynn to pursue the offer that she tour with a Latin band. Nikolas and Brook Lynn both wished the timing and circumstances had been different, but they parted as friends. Brook Lynn moved out of Wyndemere and away from Port Charles to pursue her music career.

On June 15, 2015, Kyle Sloane blackmailed Brook Lynn into signing over her shares of ELQ when he discovered Brook Lynn babysitting Leo Falconeri, Olivia's newborn son who had been presumed deceased. Olivia had feared for Leo's safety because of his mobster father, Julian Jerome, so she had faked Leo's death. To protect Leo, Brook Lynn had given into Kyle's demands.

On November 18, 2019, Brook Lynn turned up in Charlie's Pub owned by none other than Julian Jerome. After Julian abruptly closed the bar, Brook Lynn stayed behind and struck up a conversation with him. They didn't exchange names, but Julian ended up confiding to Brook Lynn about his troubles in very broad terms. Brook Lynn offered Julian some advice, but he insulted her when he thanked her by handing her some money because he had overheard her on the phone earlier with her ex-boss. Brook Lynn told Julian to keep his money then stormed out.

Later, Brook Lynn turned up at the Quartermaine mansion. Grumbling about the shabby condition of the estate, she entered the house through a patio door then stopped short when she saw her father, Olivia, and Sonny gathered in the parlor.
