I really like Buck, and know how he was introduced with Mr. Scint, his guardian. What do you think happened to his parents, and how might he have found Mr. Scint?

Ok first: THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR STARTING THIS TOPIC.
Second: As many know I am a huge fan of Buck and all his awesomeness. I've devoted way too much time studying his character and have theorized about this issue many times and have narrowed the possibilities down to my favorite/most likely one:

Buck's father was killed in a car accident by a drunk driver. He was in the car as well but suffered no injuries. (A traumatic situation like this would explain why Buck sometimes gets a bit jumpy at strange times: When Mr. Skint wakes him up and he's strangely and suddenly frightened or in Old Tricks Katrina says his name and again he resonds well, suddenly frightened.) After the accident Mr. Skint, a witness to the crash, falls in love with this oddly mature and brilliant 7 year old and takes him in after getting to know him during the death of his father. He goes to live with Skint for about 6 years. During this time, Mr. Skint raises him, embedding knowledge about everything from con artistry to guitar lessons, into his absorbent mind. And well, the rest we know.

I have two theories.
1. There was a fire,and both Bucks parents died. He was two little to remember much. Mr. was a adopted him and took him on the road with him. He taught him all the things he knew.
2. Buck lived kinda "hill-billy" with his parents, till he was around 10. His parents die in a car accident. Mr. Skint is Bucks only remaining relative, a distant cousin, and takes Buck and cares for him.

Great topic by the way! And great theory PennyBasset!

Thank you. Yours are great too! The only problem is that Buck said in GRC that his mom died when he was w baby.

Woops, I didn't remember that, so maybe he lived with his dad for several years, before he died!

My theory is that Buck's dad was drunk, and got killed from a car crash, Mr. Scint, a traveling con artist for the circus, finds Buck and raises him to be his heir

I find it hard to imagine Mr. Skint adopting Buck unless he was getting something from it. Maybe Buck was living homeless in the streets as a kid and stealing things to get by. He stole something from Mr. Skint, and Mr. Skint thought that Buck had a bit of a skill for it, and realizing Buck had no parents, decided to take him in and train him to be his assistant in crime.

It wouldn't surprise me if Buck's true past was very similar to Oliver Twist, with Mr. Skint similar to [censored].

Did the team ever come out and say that they were trying to make an Oliver Twist reference with Buck's surname, or did I just make that up in my head?

I'm almost positive they did. I mean, literally in-canon Penny said Mr. Skint looked like [censored]... So it's nearly obvious that is where Buck's last name came from. And Buck came from their money-themed names. BTW, is Buck normally a nickname or an actual name? o_0

It's an actual name. Just not a very common one.
