Miko's the first drug dealer Shaka works for after he leaves home at age fourteen. Miko acts like an older brother to Shaka at first…but when Shaka steals some drugs from him, Miko follows the code of the streets and lets his hired muscle beat Shaka up. This betrayal is one of the things that pushes Shaka towards violence.
