“What win I, if I gain the thing I seek?Topaz Rahim Kama is the youngest son and child between Zircon Kama and his former lover Fairuza Najjar, and is the younger brother to Jasper and the older paternal half-brother to Rhiannon.
A dream, a breath, a froth of fleeting joy.
Who buys a minute's mirth to wail a week?
Or sells eternity to get a toy?
For one sweet grape who will the vine destroy?
Or what fond beggar, but to touch the crown,
Would with the sceptre straight be strucken down?”
― William Shakespeare, The Rape of Lucrece
Although initially presented as enjoying his popularity (as he is the captain of the Rugby team and the boyfriend of Queen Bee Mini Pretorius) and the perks his good-looks give him, as the series progressed he revealed that those things didn't make him happy.
Throughout most of the series, he is content in his popularity and his loveless relationship with Mini. However, things begin to get complicated when he falls for Mini's best friend Livia start an affair with her. Added to the fact that his brother Jasper starts a relationship with Livia causes more problems, with both his relationship with Mini and the rest of the gang.
Although not initially liked by the rest of the gang, Jasper convinces them to include Topaz in multiple gatherings. By the end of the Series, Topaz has been fully integrated into the gang, content to shed his Rugby status to be friends with the "outsiders".
In the series, Topaz has patched up his friendships with Mini and Liv and a lot closer with Jasper. However, their relationship gets complicated when Nick begins to have feelings for Jasper's girlfriend Lisbeth Schade.
