Tupac Evans was the naive gang member involved with; "The Whitetails". Tupac was taught to play basketball by Kingi (Te Kohe Tuhaka) and ended up saving him and Tania Jeffries (Faye Smythe) when they were kidnapped by gang members. Tupac returned months later when he was in bootcamp with Daniel Potts (Ido Drent). The two initially clashed but ended up good friends and Tupac stayed with Daniel when bootcamp finished. Daniel's step father TK Samuels (Benjamin Mitchell) took Tupac in and taught him to box but Tupac's cousin Magic (Kurt Stowers) introduced Tupac to underground fighting and Daniel nearly died as a result. Tupac became involved in security work but when he began to guard Kieran Mitchell's (Adam Rickitt) brothel, Kieran's brother Sean (Thijs Morris) framed Tupac for faulty drugs that nearly killed a girl and Tupac ended up in jail.
