Yaman is a clever young man who grew up in a troubled family and lived in Tozludere, which is one of the poor neighborhoods of Istanbul. He gets a second chance when he meets the Serez family and becomes a part of their lives. At first he has hard times showing his feelings because of his pride, but later he starts to have strong bonds with the family, especially with Mert, the socially withdrawn son of the family. He cares about honor, loyalty, brotherhood and justice he acts as a protectionist to the women around him. This characteristic is probably one of the reasons why Mira, the girl he just met, is attracted to him.
