Kenyte was a nomadic tribe active in the middle of the desert. At one point, a large wormhole in the sand ate up half of the settlement, killing Fox's parents. Fox was then raised by his honorary Uncle, Copper, who was then killed by a fellow tribesman who wanted what little property Copper owned. As punishment, the tribe of Kenyte killed the murderer in retribution and raised Fox communally.
