Tyler King is the step-father of Aria King, the husband of the late Melanie King and the owner and King's Diner a chain of restaurants all over the world. Unlike most step-parents, Tyler and Aria get along great and like any father, Tyler is very protective over Aria.

After three years of dating, and Aria saying her first word to Tyler, Melanie knew he was the right one. Before she married Tyler, Melanie did gain her degree, in Business Management, and began to help Tyler with his restaurant. They married when Aria was five years old.

After Melanie was killed in a car crash when Aria was ten, Tyler vowed to continue taking care of Aria. Their relationship grew even more to the point where Tyler just tells people Aria is his daughter, not his step-daughter.
