"Ladies and gentlemen, I'm merely resistant to insanity."
Kai was born under the name "Eskay", son of Ivory Ellen Amarin and Dylan Jameson -- who would later separate after his younger sister, Alli, was born. For the first ten years of his life, he and Alli lived like any other kids, going to school while preparing to become Trainers early through teaching from their mother. Eskay's starter, a Skarmory named Skye, entered his life when she was found with a broken leg near Ecruteak City, and his next Pokémon -- Jazz, a shiny Ekans (now Arbok) -- was found near Vermillion City, during the family's first time exploring the other side of Kanjoh.
In 2007, Ellen was attacked and killed by a Toxicroak. Although in the aftermath they were given the opportunity to live with their grandmother, they instead chose to try their best to live on their own as Trainers after Alli received her starter from Lance. In the following years, the siblings caught a couple more Pokémon -- in Eskay's case, he caught
Amphibidax and Kong Ria and Banjo, as well as a Houndour named Tartarus, who later ran away due to disagreement on the whole concept of Pokémon training.

Alli is his sister.
Skye is his cousin via Mew messing with one of her ancestors. Being her starter, she is also one of his best friends. He's even said he considers her "almost like a second sister".
He dated Psyche up until the Ranger-2 arc, when they realized it wasn't going to work out.
He considers Pallad to be a sort of father-figure, being her mom's Starter.
He is incredibly close friends with Sakura due to their similar personalities. Eskay considers her one of the kindest people he's ever met, if not the kindest.
He was closer friends with Lucius than with anyone, the two having helped each other through tough times again and again since they've met. He had a one-sided crush on him up until Lucius's death, but refused to let that impede their friendship.
Ren is his 3rd cousin through Ren's mother and Eskay's father.
In the AU
The AU version of Kai is currently in a retcon-induced limbo. The retcon in question has yet to be clarified.
In the Otherverse
Rather than Eskay adopting Skye, Ivy did. It wasn't until he found Jazz when he caught his first Pokemon. Due to her shininess, Eskay believed he was meant to be a Poison-Monotype Trainer, much like how his mom was a Steel-Monotype Trainer. Eventually, Skye fended off the Toxicroak which would have killed her in the OU and AU - but she was still poisoned by it, and was in the hospital when Alli received her first mon. The incident left him with a similar phobia of Toxicroak, but not nearly as crippling as in other 'verses.
