Tyler Stuart is a small guy. But what he lacks in height, he more than makes up for in physique. His body is lean and his muscles are taut and strong. Tyler has jet-black, thick hair that is short on the sides and long at the top. He looks — and feels — as though he is still in his twenties, even though he's in his thirties. Tyler also likes to think of himself as a ladies’ man. Well, in fact, he is. His nickname in the office is Live For The Weekend, because he’s always complaining about work and getting out on the weekend so that he can go and pick up a girl from a bar or a club or a restaurant. 

Tyler uses his charm, quick wit, and ruggedly handsome looks to help him sweep women off their feet. 


Born and raised by his dad and brother, Tyler got himself some pretty bad habits early on. After he turned eighteen, he and his brother would go to the races or the casinos or the betting shops along the high street and piss away whatever money he had. The majority of the time, he would lose it all. Soon, he wrapped himself up a massive debt, which he is still paying today. He doesn’t like to tell anyone about his financial issues, or that he is having sleepless nights about it. In many ways, sleeping with as many women as possible helps him take his mind off it, even if he is digging himself an even deeper hole by paying for meals and drinks and other luxuries. 

Tyler joined the Metropolitan Police Service when he was twenty-five. He needed the money, and after his brother was killed in a gang incident (his brother was killed as collateral — he was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time), Tyler thought it was the best way to get some sort of justice for his brother’s passing. Tyler’s first role in the MPS was within organised crimes, gangs, getting right into the heart of the criminal underworld. He even came face to face with the man who killed his brother. 


Women. Tyler’s one main like/love in his life is the opposite sex. He grew up in a family of boys — his dad and older brother — who were always finding solace and courtship with women. Tyler was surrounded by it all at such a young age, it became engrained in his mind. He learned everything there was to about women from his brother and dad: all of his pick up lines, excuses to get them out of the house the morning after, and the best ways to pleasure a woman. 

When Tyler isn’t being a man-whore, he enjoys watching football at the pub with some friends he’s made along the way. Other than that, Tyler has a very simple, lonely life. He has few friends within the force, save for Jake who is his best friend, and ever has been since Jake joined SO15.

What was his most embarrassing moment? Easily one of the funniest, most embarrassing moments of my life is when I was in a pub one time, talking to a woman. She was similar age to me, and she worked in finance. She had just been stood up and she was vulnerable. So I swooped in and made her feel better. We got talking, the laughter was flowing, and so were the drinks. But then the bartenders changed their shifts. And then there she was, one of the other girls I had slept with and hadn’t called back. She was serving us. Needless to say, I’m sure you can imagine what happened next: the old flame told the new flame what sort of person I was like, and completely ruined my chances of sleeping with the new flame. I got a drink thrown in my face — twice — and I had to get my suit dry cleaned. It’s safe to say I won’t be returning to that bar any time soon. 

What’s his greatest strength? My greatest strength is talking to women. I feel confident when I’m around them. I feel like I’m a different man. I feel so much more comfortable talking to them than I do men. I see men as competition. 

What’s his greatest flaw? Not knowing when something’s good for me when I have it. So, there was one girl, a long time ago that I fell in love with. But it didn’t work out. I was too young and stupid. I cheated on her and she broke up with me. I loved her so much, she tamed me, she kept me under control, and we could have gone far together. We could have been married by now, maybe have started a little family together. 

Proudest achievement? I’d have to say my greatest achievement is putting the person who killed my brother behind bars. Trust me, there was a lot more I wanted to do to him before that, but I was in uniform, and I wasn’t allowed. 

Biggest secret… I’ve never my mum before. She died giving birth to me. Perhaps the lack of mother figure in my life is the reason I sleep with so many women. Perhaps it’s because I constantly look to the women I sleep with for answers, for help. Perhaps. I don’t know.
