Fast & Furious Fans Now Understand Dom's Backstory
Whether you're a Fast and Furious fan who needs a refresher on how Dom went from living his life a quarter mile at a time to thwarting acts of terrorism, or someone who has never watched a Fast film but is curious to learn more about the franchise's central character, we've got you covered.
Dominic was one of three Toretto children that we know of, alongside his sister Mia and brother Jacob. He grew up in Los Angeles, where his family owned and operated Toretto's Market & Cafe, while his father also worked as a professional stock car driver.
Along with his love of cars, Dom also inherited his father's religious faith and devotion to friends and family. When Dom was young, he helped his father rebuild a 1970 Dodge Charger RT, which he would continue to drive and cherish well into adulthood.
At some point, Dom's father was killed during a race, after being run off the track by a driver named Kenny Linder. Dom witnessed the accident, which killed his father instantly and traumatized young Dom. A week after his father died, Dom assaulted Linder, which ended Linder's racing career and sent Dom to prison for two years. Even after he was released, Dom couldn't follow in his father's footsteps, since he received a lifetime ban from the racetracks following the attack.
Dom and Letty Ortiz met when they were children, around the time Letty was 10 years old, and formed a friendship around their shared love of cars. As teenagers, they began dating, and remained together until the first Fast and the Furious film. Letty worked with Dom stealing DVD players and other high-end electronics, and also participated in his illegal nighttime street races. By the end of that film, Dom and Letty have to split up when the police are made aware of Dom's criminal activities and he's forced to go on the run. Keep watching the video to see that Fast & Furious fans now understand Dom's backstory.
