Morena is introduced to the show when his mother, Tumi, drops him in Refilwe at his father's house. His mother paints him as a troublesome teenager who does not listen to anyone. She sounds fed up with his mischief.

During the drop-off, Tumi mentions that Morena stole from Mam’Flora, a family friend of the Mokoenas. She also states that he bunked classes and joined a group of boys who engaged in drug abuse. The root cause of his unruly behaviour is traced to his upbringing; he grew up without a father figure to guide him, a story that most people relate to.
