Miles Lydon is an infamous hacker and core member of the Rising Tide.
At some undetermined point in the past, he trained Skye to become a hacker as well, and the two developed a romantic and sexual relationship. Lydon taught Skye many computer skills that she has used in her quest to find the truth about her parents.
Conflict with S.H.I.E.L.DEdit
Lydon remained in contact with Skye when she infiltrated S.H.I.E.L.D. hoping to find evidence about her parents' identity. Skye received an anonymous text message asking her status in "0-8-4" which may well have come from Miles. When a hack of his brought him to S.H.I.E.L.D.'s attention, Skye warned him away with a text. Skye soon joined him in his Austin Texas apartment.
Lydon was surprised to hear that Skye found S.H.I.E.L.D. to be less monstrous than they had imagined. However, after a brief romantic interlude, they were found out and detained by agent Melinda May.
Brought back to the Bus for interrogation, Skye tried to defend Lydon to her team as they flew to Hong Kong. However, the truth then came out - Despite their shared ideals, Lydon accepted payment of one million dollars from a woman named Raina for information that was later used to endanger the life of a man named Chan Ho Yin.
Despite Lydon's insistence that he only did it so they could build a life together, Skye was horrified that Lydon would abandon his ideals like that. Realizing that he wasn't the man she thought him to be, Skye broke off their relationship.
Lydon later aided Agent Phil Coulson's team when their extraction mission went bad, and after it was over Coulson offered Lydon a choice - a cell or a monitoring bracelet that would prevent him from using electronic equipment. Coulson then left him in Hong Kong without any money (as Coulson donated the money from the information about Chan to the family of slain S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Kwan Chen, who died on the mission) or any way to return home. Seemingly, Miles is still restricted by the bracelet, and therefore unable to freely pursue his former profession. Within the series, Skye has not been in contact with him since this incident, nor has his name come up again.
