Jai Fernandez moves to the bay to reconnect with Miles after the Boxing Day tsunami.
Jai Fernandez moved to Summer Bay after having a complete turnaround in his life. His adored family died in Phuket, leaving him unscathed on the outside and tortured on the inside. Miles was his only friend during this vulnerable time, but as Miles began to break down from his own problems, he scarred Jai even more leaving him feeling abandoned and in a darker place than before. As time moved on, Jai only reinforced his emotional apathy and now considers the world a cruel heartless place. His computer is his best friend, since people only let you down.
Jai is an instant misfit in the Bay, as his demeanour sets him apart from the crowd, from his old school walkman to his less than apathetic take on fashion, but these are not expressions of individuality, rather as indifference. He was moved from foster home to foster home, school to school, gradually spending more time in youth group homes than with families and has sunk into himself, barely communicating with the outside world by the time he reaches Summer Bay. Though Jai developed an unusually fluid friendship with Annie.
Jai slowly made friends at Summer Bay High, only to face another death when Axel was killed after they were riding a motor scooter together.
He has now begun his first relationship with Annie Campbell.
Relationship status: Jai is dating Annie.
Family: His immediate family died in the Boxing Day Tsunami in Phuket. Miles is the closest thing to family that he has left.
Friends: Annie and Ruby.
Living arrangements: Living in Summer Bay house with Miles, Kirsty, Ollie and Alf.
