As the evil twin of Vampire Diaries character Jo Parker, Kai was introduced in the previous series' sixth season, killing his pregnant sister on her wedding night before casting a sleeping spell on Elena.

Kai's return to the series' setting Mystic Falls has been hinted to from the very beginning; two of the main characters -- twin sisters Josie and Lizzie Saltzman -- Kai's nieces. In addition to preparing for a ritual that would pit the siblings against each other, the Saltzman twins discovered the Ascendant, a relic from The Vampire Diaries capable of summoning someone lost, potentially hinting at Kai's arrival to meet his nieces.
