Amal is the uncle of Navid Shirazi, who was involved with Omar Shirazi in his porn distribution business. He later offers to help Navid with money once Navid's mother moves to Switzerland and leaves him living with Leila Shirazi. He later lends Navid money after Navid wants to bribe Leila's bad-influence boyfriend, Darius, to leave his sister alone. Amal later has Navid doing jobs for him and reveals that he is running a stolen car ring out of Shirazi Studios, which has Navid's name on the ownership contracts.
After Navid tells Amal that he is done, Amal threatens to harm Silver if he doesn't comply with his demands. Navid later approaches the police and works with Kat to help bring Amal to justice. In order to do so, Navid has to work for Amal for a while, being tested in various ways before being fully trusted. After Navid gets in over his head, Omar Shirazi returns and turns himself in, thereby giving evidence against Amal in order to protect his son.
