Johnny went to New Town High School to learn English. He wanted to become a lawyer, a director and an artist. The language was hard and learning was slow; nevertheless, he gave up all his dreams that …Author: Johnny Tran
During the day, he tunes performance vehicles out of the auto shop behind his family’s grocery store which is run by Mia. At night, Dom and his team participate in illegal street racing in and around downtown LA. When they’re not racing or working in the garage, the team performs precision hijackings out of three black high-performance Honda Civics, targeting container semi-trucks on LA freeways transporting electronic merchandise valued at hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars.
LAPD police officer Brian O’Connor infiltrates the group while working undercover, using the alias of Brian Spilner and the guise of a new racer eager to participate in high-stakes matches. Brian ultimately loses the race, and a subsequent run-in with Dom’s rival Johnny Tran leads to the Eclipse’s destruction.
The result places Brian in debt to Dom for an equally capable vehicle that can run a quarter-mile in ten seconds. Over the following weeks and months, and much to the chagrin of Vince, Brian works closely with Dom and his team to restore a Toyota Supra in time to participate in Race Wars, a legal racing event held in the desert outside of LA that attracts hundreds of participants. Dom ultimately discovers Brian’s identity when Brian is forced to expose himself to save Vince after their final daytime hijacking goes awry.
Vince, having sustained physical trauma from the endeavor, is bleeding out, forcing Brian to call for medevac and announce himself as an LAPD officer. This deception infuriates Dom, who immediately departs with Mia, Leon and Letty.
By the time Vince is loaded onto the medevac, Dom is speeding away in the last remaining Civic with the remnants of Dom’s team. When Tran and his cousin Lance attempt a drive-by shooting on dirt bikes as revenge for an earlier dispute, Brian and Dom pursue them in separate cars. Dom, in his late father’s Dodge Charger, manages to incapacitate Lance while Brian pursues Tran in his Supra and kills him after shooting him in the side, causing him to crash at high speed on his motorcycle.
Dom then challenges Brian to a race, pitting the Charger vs. The two engage in the high-speed drag race ultimately against an oncoming train. Barely surviving the train, Dom immediately collides with a semi-truck pulling out of a side street causing the Charger to flip multiple times. Brian, rushing to his aid, understands Dom’s plight and fulfilling his commitment to give Dom a ten-second car, hands over the keys to his Supra.
Dom departs as the sound of police sirens approaches, leaving Brian to answer for his failure. In a post-credits scene, Dom is seen driving a Chevrolet Chevelle in Baja California, having eluded capture. In The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift he makes a cameo appearance at the end of the film as an old friend of the now deceased Han. During a talk with Brian, Dominic recalls his happy childhood with his father and Mia. Hobbs and Elena become allies to Dominic after his team saves them from Reyes’s men.
With the help of his team, Dominic’s heist is successful, and goes into hiding with Mia and Brian and starts a relationship with Elena. He is approached by Hobbs, who asks him to help take down Owen Shaw, whose second-in-command is revealed to be an amnesiac but still-alive Letty.
With Elena’s support, Dominic regroups with his team and tries to talk to Letty to remember him and her former friends. Through numerous actions, he eventually gains Letty’s trust, and defeats Shaw. His group is given full pardons from their crimes, and they return to the United States. Elena becomes Hobbs’s new partner so that Dominic can be with Letty and start anew. In a post credit scene, he would later get a call with a threatening message from a man related to Owen Shaw. In Furious 7 he is seeking revenge on Owen Shaw’s brother Deckard, who is revealed to have deliberately caused the crash that had killed Han in Tokyo Drift thus leading to Dom’s cameo in the third film and also destroyed Dom’s home.
While he pursues Shaw he is recruited by mysterious government agent ‘Mr Nobody’ to rescue Ramsey, a hacker with a device known as ‘God’s Eye’ able to locate anyone on Earth, who has been captured by Mose Jakande with the promise of help in finding Shaw after Ramsey is safe.
Dom and his crew save Ramsey – who is revealed to be female much to the surprise of her rescuers. Shaw and Jakande ultimately team up to kill Dom and the crew but they are defeated after a lengthy and violent battle. After this Dom bids an emotional farewell to Brian, who is retiring from the fast-paced, dangerous life to be with his son and the pregnant again Mia.
He helps her steal the “God Eye” and all the equipment for her plan to start a war. On Cipher’s plane he learns he and Elena had a son while they were in a relationship. After nearly losing the nuclear warheads to Letty and the team. In the film it is later revealed that throughout he made a deal with Deckard Shaw’s mother to have Deckard and Owen rescue his son from Cipher by helping Deckard fake his death.
Once Deckard rescues his son, he turns on Cipher and helps his team stop her plans. Dominic is tough and street smart. Dominic Toretto is portrayed by Vin Diesel. As part of his investigation into a string of hijackings that have resulted in millions of dollars in electronic merchandise being stolen, Brian is charged with infiltrating the Los Angeles street racing scene, as the evidence suggests the culprits are talented racers. However, Brian re-engages them later that night when he lays the pink slip for his Mitsubishi Eclipse down as a wager in a high-stakes race near downtown LA.
Dom accepts, but is unable to collect when an LAPD raid leads to the frantic dispersal of all the racers. Dom abandons his car in a parking garage, and is rescued by Brian from being captured by an LAPD patrol officer.
Fleeing the police, the duo accidentally enter into the territory of Dom’s rival, Johnny Tran, resulting in the destruction of Brian’s Eclipse. Due to the earlier terms of the race, Dom holds Brian to his debt, but lets him into his inner-circle. Brian presents a totaled Toyota Supra as payment, proposing that if they restore it that it will meet Dom’s demands. As they restore the car Brian becomes closer to both Dom and his sister Mia, whom he begins to date.
Both his friendship to Dom and romance with Mia upset Dom’s best friend Vince. Under pressure from his superiors with the LAPD and FBI, Brian presses Dom harder to understand where he gets the money to pay for such high-end upgrades to their vehicles. Dom implies that if Brian proves himself at a big upcoming racing event called Race Wars, then he’ll reveal his secret.
During the event, Dom and his crew depart in the middle of the night to hijack a semi truck. Brian reveals his identity to Mia and coerces information out of her to help Dom. The two of them subsequently pursue the crew near Thermal , and find them in the middle of a hijacking gone wrong.
Vince, stuck on the truck and wounded by the armed truck driver, is rescued by Brian after Letty is incapacitated. Brian is then forced to reveal his identity to Dom as he calls for an emergency medevac to airlift Vince to safety. Infuriated, Dom leaves with Mia, Leon and Letty. Brian pursues them to the Toretto household, but Leon and Letty have already fled to avoid arrest. At that same time, Johnny Tran and his cousin Lance perform a drive-by shooting over an earlier dispute, prompting Brian and Dom to pursue them in separate cars.
Dom disables Lance in his Dodge Charger while Brian kills Tran by shooting him in the side, causing him to fall off of his dirt bike at high speed.
Dom then challenges Brian to a quarter-mile drag race on a stretch of road that has a railroad crossing as the finish line. The two finish in a tie, narrowly beating an oncoming train, but Dom immediately collides with a semi truck advancing from a side street, causing his vehicle to flip multiple times. Running to Dom’s aid, Brian understands Dom’s dilemma, and not wanting to send him back to prison, hands over the keys to his Supra so that Dom can escape capture by the police.
He goes on the run in a red Dodge Stealth, earning money via street racing. Losing the Dodge when he’s forced to abandon it after police officers recognize the vehicle, he replaces it with a used Nissan Skyline that he repairs and restores with money he earns from subsequent races. In the second film, he is living in Miami as a street racer, but gets caught by U. Customs agents. He and childhood friend Roman Pearce go undercover as street racers to track down the apprehend the ruthless drug lord, Carter Verone.
In the fourth film, after having his crimes pardoned, O’Conner becomes an FBI agent and is given the task of bringing down Arturo Braga Ramon Campos , a known drug trafficker. O’Conner, as well as Toretto, both infiltrate Braga’s crew. While Braga is eventually apprehended, Toretto is arrested and sentenced to prison as well, resulting in O’Conner, Mia, and members of Toretto’s crew intercepting the prison bus to free Dominic from custody.
In the fifth film, O’Conner and Toretto get caught in a crossfire with corrupt businessman and ruthless drug lord Hernan Reyes in Rio de Janeiro and plot to steal all of Reyes’ money to buy their freedom. He is often worried that he will behave in the manner that his father did, but Toretto reassured him that he won’t because he will keep an eye on him if he does. O’Conner had been in juvenile detention with Roman before he became a cop.
O’Conner has also rekindled his relationship with Mia, and she becomes pregnant with his child. After successfully questioning Braga and returning to London, O’Conner starts to feel guilty for letting Letty go undercover, which led to her amnesia and subsequent work for Shaw.
The group captures Shaw and convinces Letty to side with them. O’Conner apologizes to Letty, who says that she might not remember him, but if she did work for him, she would have done of her own free will. Shaw reveals that he had captured Mia, leading to a high-speed chase after Shaw’s airplane, where Mia is rescued and Shaw is crippled and put into a coma. Hobbs then grants the group’s amnesty, and the entire crew move back to America, where Mia, Toretto and O’Conner have decided to reside in the old Toretto home.
In the seventh and final film as a main character, O’Conner is in Los Angeles, where he is getting accustomed to life as a father. When Dom’s house is destroyed, he joins Dom’s crew in a series of missions to find and capture the bomber Deckard Shaw. The missions include an airdrop over the Caucasus Mountains to ambush Jakande’s convoy; he jumps onto the bus to rescue the hacktivist Ramsey. At Abu Dhabi, he and Dominic break into a billionaire’s apartment room to recover the flash drive containing the God’s Eye program.
He joins Dom and Mr. Nobody, along with a covert ops unit, to try to capture Shaw but is ambushed by Jakande and his militants, who have allied with Deckard. When Jakande goes after Dom’s crew in Los Angeles, he is part of the driving team carrying Ramsay, but after his car is destroyed, goes on foot to restore the cell tower connection so that God’s Eye can be hacked.
Following the defeat of Jakande and Shaw, he and Mia return to normal family life by playing with their two children Jack and Gisele at the beach. When Dom leaves, he notices and pulls up beside Dom’s car in his white Toyota Supra, asking Dom “You thought you could leave without saying goodbye? Roman suggests Brian be called in to help. But Letty refuses reminding him that team agreed to keep Brian and Mia out any conflict they are a part of.
Dom later names his son after O’Conner. He is very interested in tuners, especially Nissan Skyline models. She is also a highly skilled street racer and mechanic. In The Fast and the Furious , Letty expresses some concern about Dominic’s carjacking scheme, but goes along to back him up despite her concerns. In the end, during a botched highway robbery, she rolls her car and is injured, but survives. Several weeks later, Mia calls Dominic to tell him Letty has been apparently murdered by Fenix.
In the post-credits scene of Fast Five , Luke Hobbs receives a file regarding a robbery, in which Letty’s photograph is attached, revealing that she is still alive; Fenix did not, in fact, kill her, and instead involved her in the robbery of a German military convoy.
