Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Grew Up… in Barstow, California without a father around to teach him how to live. Brian had to learn everything on his own through an education on the streets.

Living… in Los Angeles. Brian, an undercover cop, is good at living a double life. Being a police officer is a bit like being an actor. As he puts it, “Even the cops in Hollywood are Hollywood.”

Profession… undercover cop working for the FBI. Brian has been investigating a series of truck robberies in Los Angeles. He has had to go undercover in L.A.’s street racing scene, where he befriended Mia Toretto and her brother Dom. 

Interests… cars. It’s easy for Brian to fake his way into the world of extreme racing because he’s been popping cars since his teenage years. By working part time at The Racer’s Edge body shop, he’s beginning to earn Dom’s respect.

Relationship Status… involved with Dom’s sister, Mia. Brian flirts with Mia in order to gain access to Dom and his crew, though what began as simple police work is starting to get emotional for Brian.

Challenge… finding and arresting the thieves while remaining undercover. Brian has successfully infiltrated the street-racing scene and has even found a few prime suspects. He just hopes his new friends weren’t involved with the robberies.

Personality… brave and tough. Brian is not your average cop – he’s been on the other side of the other side of the law enough to understand what drives people to become criminals. His hard-boiled persona is what earns him Dom’s respect. As he announces at his first street race, “If I lose, winner takes my car clean and clear. But if I win, I take the cash, and I take the respect.”
