Skye's parents were Jedi who fell in love and secretly married in spite of the rules forbidding such a thing. When Skye was conceived, her mother left on a "meditative retreat" to Isatrine until the birth. During this time, she became good friends with the family who ran the neighboring farm.
Skye was born shortly before the Clone Wars broke out, and her mother reluctantly left her with the neighboring family and then departed to rejoin the Jedi in their fight against the Separatists. Before leaving, she gave Skye a necklace with the Jedi Crest. The symbol is made of chromium with a small, translucent precious stone set in the center of the symbol.
She and her husband would return when they could, but the visits were few and far between. When Order 66 took place in 19 BBY, the family presumed that the girl's parents died with the other Jedi, as they lacked any specific knowledge of their fate.
The couple continued to raise the young girl as their own, Skye and their biological son, Cyrus, becoming inseparable companions.
They keep Skye's lineage secret from everyone, including her, to protect the family from the Empire. They don't know the significance of the symbol on the necklace, but even if they did they would be unlikely to take it away from her because it is all she has from her mother.
Skye only has faint memories of her parents, and believes what her adoptive parents have told her: that her parents were unable to raise her, and gave her to them. Then they were killed by pirates on one of their trips. The proof they offer of this is a specific ship that is listed as having been destroyed with all hands shortly before the end of the war.
As she grew older, she discovered that she could feel other people's minds. Not enough to know what they were thinking or feeling, but if she pressed hard enough, she felt she could influence them. She has always been fascinated by animals, and has tried to use this ability on them. It usually results in a squall, groundrat, or other small creature scampering away in terror, but she hopes to be able to develop the ability enough to really connect with an animal.
As she grew older, she enjoyed exploring her surroundings, travelling farther from home on almost every excursion.
She now operates as a freelance scout and guide, taking jobs to explore areas or guide surveyors and mineral analysts looking for new mining sites or ore veins.
She is eager to learn more about her past and about her powers, and she loves exploring, finding new places and things.
