     Malachai "Kai" Parker 

Kai Parker

Played by: Chris Wood
"Brother, promise me this if you don't promise me anything else, Protect my baby."

When Kai grew up, his true nature as a siphon was revealed, and his parents isolated him from the rest of his siblings, and called him an "abomination." After the death of his youngest sister, Kai has been raising his only niece, Elizabeth for fourteen years. Finally he met a woman named Katherine, and soon married her.

When their biological daughter, Isabella grew up, she realized what was around her and was eventually possessed by Kai's angry mother as revenge. To save his daughter, Kai had the spirit of his mother placed in him. After this event happened, Kai's memory seemed to have been completely erased.
