Who is almost eighteen and hung up on revenge..revenge for the killer of his dad and revenge for the sake of his mother who was deceived and lied to by his father; and his little sister who didn't deserve any of it. He's angry about being forced to give up a promising career in AFL and forced to move states, and he's angry about being forced into witness protection, often, disrupting his schooling his family and his life. And he's fierce and won't put up with any ones shit including the schools stud Cohen and his taunts. He gives off a piss off attitude and is usually left to himself. Until he meets Charlie who looks as lonely as he is. And alone. And, even though he totally doesn't expect to be is drawn to her and allows her to penetrate his walls. Charlie is a breath of lightness in his dark world and although she's troubled; she brings hope - that there is something in life that matters and it gives him purpose - he feels a strong need to protect her and to fight his own personal demons for; and she brings a softness that he hasn't felt inside him for a very long time. Tyler however finds himself on the run, narrowly avoiding the risk of imminent danger, and as he falls steadily and hard for Charlie she is implicated and is pulled along with him on the run; at first kicking and screaming and then in love and loyalty, until he almost dies and is at risk of loosing her the only good thing in his life.
