Skai Jenkins was born to a cab driver, dad and a non-working actress, mother who was irregularly going on acting auditions. He was energetic and displayed unusual athletic ability early on with Blue eyes. Growing up on the streets of Hollywood he usually found himself, on his own, requiring an ability to defend himself if he was put in that situation which was often. By age seven, he was getting in fights with middle school age kids that would try to pick on him.
Skai celebrated his eighth birthday with only his dad. After years of rejection of acting auditions his mother left Hollywood and her family. She was never heard from again. Skai could sense how devastated his surprised dad was to find all her things gone the day before his birthday. So Skai did whatever he could to make his dad proud. His father would regularly take his wild, son on walks in the Hollywood Hills discussing his future and staying out of trouble. Skai tried but typically let his juvenile, hot head get in the way of that.
