Brady Black is the son of John Black and deceased Isabella Toscano. He was sent to private school and returned on a college break, not returning home. He resented John for dating Marlena so soon after Isabella's death and treated her disrespectfully, even though Marlena was the one who basically brought him up. Marlena was convinced Brady was trying to kill Belle and when Belle was injured in a train accident, she blamed him, though he is the one who saved Belle. Roman shot Brady by accident and Brady was paralyzed from the waist down. Brady started getting the use of his legs back, but he was determined to get back at Marlena and get her out of his life. After a time, the two were able to see through their differences and they forged a relationship. Isabella came to him in visions and guided him through life and issues with Philip, who was dating Chloe Lane, with whom he cared for. Chloe and Brady finally got together and Chloe found out she had leukemia. She fought and the disease went into remission and she left for Europe.
Brady moved in with Victor and turned to Nicole Walker for support and they became close, but NIcole showed her true colors soon and when Chloe returned from Europe, he knew he still loved her. Victor "died" in the Salem Stalker storyline, and Chloe, he thought had died in a car accident overseas, but when he found out Victor was alive on an island, (Melaswen) he was one of those who went to save him. Nicole and Brady were still together until he wound up in hospital and found out that Chloe was really alive, but hiding because of a scar on her face. He eventually married her and they left for a honeymoon and to Europe to live. Chloe returned to Salem November of 2007, without Brady, and it was found out that Brady had turned to drugs - and divorced her. Family blame Chloe for getting Brady into drugs, because her friends were into that. He has been through rehab and is now on his way back to Salem, November 2008.
Brady returned sober and made amends with family. He and Chloe, now divorced, remain friendly. He is currently working at Titan and interested in Arianna Hernandez, a waitress at the pub. They dated and had an on and off relationship with much turmoil before finally calling it quits. Brady attempted to get together with Nicole, but found she was lying to him. His demons returned and he started drinking. He learned that Vivian was going to lock Maggie into a sarcophagus, because Maggie and Victor are interested in one another. Brady put a stop to that and turned the tables on Vivian. He kept her in the sarcophagus several days. Nicole, Victor and Kate caught on. Eventually, Vivian got out and threatened to take revenge on all of them, but ended up quitting and leaving town. Brady and Nicole attempted to get together again but that didn’t last.
Brady met Madison James, the owner of MadWorld Cosmetics, who came to Salem to get into business with Brady and Victor and Titan Industries. They started seeing each other. Meanwhile, John and Marlena came back to Salem and after John was accused of stealing retirement funding from his Basic Black employees, he was proven innocent and used all his assets in an effort to pay back his employees. Brady decided to leave Titan and convinced John to work together to rebuild Basic Black. He happily proposed to Madison and while awaiting her answer, found out that she was still married to a man named Ian McAllister. Furious, Brady told Madison to leave him alone and they are on the outs. This didn't last and soon, Madison explained that she has been trying to get away from Ian for some time. The pair continued to date and Ian finally agreed to a divorce. Brady and Madison became engaged and were to marry when the "Daysaster" struck and the gas pipes in Salem blew. She was killed in the explosion and Brady found it difficult to move on. When Kristen DiMera returned to town, he hated her on sight, because of her murder attempt on Marlena some fourteen years earlier. Eventually, he came to see another side of her - as she manipulated him - and they got together. Marlena, John and the rest of the family were furious with him for dating the enemy but he defended Kristen and though she has been playing him, he does not yet see it.

Melanie starts to cry, thinking about how it would have been growing up with her parents. Maybe she wouldn't have been so screwed up. Maxine says she has turned her life around.
Anne barges into Theresa's room asking how the mother of the year is. She saw Tate and says he has Theresa's eyes. They giggle about how she is the mother of the grandson of the richest man in the country. Brady arrives. He says he has to step out. He has something personal to do. He goes and her mother, Kimberly, arrives. Theresa's annoyed. Kim tells her that her father, Shane, isn't with her because he's trying to get her record expunged. She wants her daughter to come home with her. Theresa's jaw drops.
Brady arrives at Melanie's. They smooch and Brady gets down on one knee. Melanie gasps and clutches at her chest. He produces the ring and asks for her hand in marriage.
Theresa wakes up in the hospital after surgery. Brady's at her side and tells her the baby's doing well. He thanks her for going through this for their son. She tells him it's a real game changer. She did something for someone else without getting paid for it. "I helped someone that I love and it's not a bad feeling." Brady goes to find out when they can hold their son again and runs into Daniel outside. Melanie shows up shortly thereafter with a hug for Brady. He tells her he needs time alone with her and they need to see his son. He brings her into Theresa's room. Theresa feigns being happy to see Mel. She tells her that if their son was a girl they'd have called her Melanie so in honor of how cheerful she is, they decided to call him Tate. Melanie looks touched and she and Brady leave the room to make plans to meet later. Once Melanie leaves, Brady takes a huge diamond ring from his pocket and smiles. Meanwhile Serena drops by Daniel's office where he asks what the deal is between her and Xander. Serena says she doesn't dislike Xander but is uncomfortable with discussing this. He should ask Nicole, who is with him right now!
