Topher's biological father, Doyle, was one of the many police officers targeted during the infamous White Night incident. He had no choice but to hide with his younger sisters, Emma and Rosie, in a closet while their parents were brutally murdered in the next room by Seventh Kavalry foot soldiers. While his sisters were able to hold onto their innocence, Topher in comparison became traumatized by the incident.
During a classroom presentation, a student in Topher's class aggressively asked his adopted mother, Angela Abar, if she used "Redfordations" to help subsidize her bakery. Enraged by this comment, he violently tackled the classmate to the ground.
