Biography

Power Book II: Ghost

Season 1

Artist by day and up-and-coming drug lord by night, Dru has no desire to be part of the Tejada drug cartel but has no choice since it has been in the family's DNA since his parents got married. After including Tariq has the family's new business partner, Monet sends Dru to Stansfield to get information on where Tariq stores their product. Dru visits Tariq's dorm and gets no information out of it. Instead, ends up joining Tariq's art class and partners with Zeke's basketball teammate Everett, who starts to get romantically involved with him.

After the homecoming basketball game, Lil Guap tries to shoot Zeke in the knee but misfires after Dru tackles him and nearly beats him death. Dru then grabs Lil Guap's gun to kill him until he sees Everett shook after learning Dru's true identity. This happened after the failed attempt to kill Tariq under orders of Cane and Lil Guap, resulting in the death of Barz. As the Tejada family finds out, they disown him.

Dru hears Rico pull up at the bar with the drop, but knows it's a trap the moment he realizes the drugs haven't been shipped yet. Dru tries to get a weapon to fire back at the shooters but ends up wounded in the shoulder, Cane arrives after the shootout and rushes Dru to the hospital. Dru managed to survive after he was taken into surgery.

Season 2

Dru is still recovering from being shot and his arm is in a cast. He tries doing some drawing but can't even manage it and seems frustrated about it. Cane takes him to a gun range and they do some shooting practice, when Dru's arm starts to feel slightly better. Dru mentions about them being ripped off on their last supply by Rico, without knowing it was Cane, and Cane says he can help with that.

A reporter asks Zeke questions outside of the Tejada house and when the reporter mentions Lorenzo, Dru punches him. He faces assault charges but Davis seems to have sorted it out. Dru is also still in a relationship with Everett, who tells him the truth about mentioning his name in an investigation but Dru isn't too annoyed at him. Everett later says that he will stay loyal to Dru.

When Lorenzo is released from prison he wants to make Dru head of the Tejada family in terms of the children as opposed to Cane. Monet disagrees with this but Lorenzo claims that he is smart and can make good decisions. Dru kills Kino as he is a threat and the threat needs to be eliminated. Lorenzo also kills a female witness and says that they can't have any loose ends. Everett mentions to Dru about Ramirez's badge being found in Tariq's dorm room and Cane later fights with Dru about this.

He almost shoots Everett because of his betrayal but gets a text from Everett and suddenly changes his mind. Dru helps with the plan of using GTG to rob Mecca in Drug Related, and he strangles Lil Guap to death for what he did to Zeke in Season 1. Lorenzo is later annoyed with Dru about this as he needed Lil Guap for business, but he makes up for it by taking drugs from Stansfield. He gets into a fight with Carlito but Cane arrives to save him.
