Brian O’Conner is born and raised in Barstow, California. Growing up under a violent and drunk father, Brian came to resent his father. He was taught by his mother how to drive, consequently causing a four car pileup on his first driving lesson. During his teen years Brian worked by stealing or boosting cars and selling them to chop shops. He was arrested and spent 2 years in juvie, where he met Roman Pierce, who became his best friend.

In the first film, The Fast and the Furious, Brian is working as an undercover detective with the LAPD, who assigns him the task of solving a series of semi-trailer truck hijackings by street racers. While investigating the street race scene, he meets Dominic “Dom” Toretto and infiltrates his crew while getting involved in a relationship with Dominic’s sister, Mia Toretto. He allows Dom to escape arrest at the end of the first film and leaves Los Angeles after to avoid his own arrest.
