Indio Fairn is the middle son of Harry Fairn and Miriam Wild, born September 4th, 1990 in the Fairn family home in Anaconda, Montana. He has an unknown middle name. His twin is Joy. His brothers are Caleb and Jesse. Wynter is his half-sister. He meets Xay Morant in 2015.
Indio is a good friend to Jesse but has a poor relationship with older brother Caleb due to his resentment of Caleb taking an authoritarian role in the household when they were growing up. Indio was frequently in trouble through his teenage years, culminating in a felony assault charge at age 17 when he beat up a boy at school and went to Highvale (juvenile rehabilitation) for 15 weeks. His problems stem from his mother abandoning the family when he was six, taking his twin with her.
Indio is a talented artist and musician. He studied graphic design at Ohio State, transferring to Portland State to complete his degree. His first love is music, and he is the lead vocalist and guitarist in his best friend Turk's college band Blunderbelly before becoming the lead singer and guitarist for his siblings' indie rock band Rule212 (04 Lost Melodies). He is also stage manager and art director for the band. He has done session work for well-known musicians in LA and London (05 Distortion), and currently works as a freelance graphic designer.
He dates his high school crush, music major Jenny Leung, in 2014 (06 Natural Harmonics). Other (often brief) relationships include Frances Feeney in high school, Turk's girlfriend Piper, pink-haired groupie Eleanor, Christian singer Charity Thorne, Anke the German backpacker, English schoolteacher Claire, and Bonnie. He later develops an interest in Quinn Lacey (10 The Beat Goes On).
After connecting with Wynter over music, Indio develops a very close relationship with her. Although their feelings help them both heal from past hurts, this closeness disrupts their other personal relationships.
