Kyle is a product of an experiment done by a group of scientists who aimed to test the effects of extending natural pregnancy by implanting human embryos into surrogate human mothers. Also a child born out of a successful experiment, Adam Baylin, moved on and created Kyle using his own DNA. Adam developed a chamber which served as the womb where Kyle developed.

He was later taken under the care of the Trager family, who willingly helped him uncover the mystery of his identity.
