Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/BioShock2'': We hear nothing about Eleanor Lamb's biological father and the circumstances of her conception and birth. This is odd because a woman like Dr. Lamb being a single parent in 1950s society is unlikely to have gone unremarked on. For her part, Eleanor looks upon Subject Delta as her replacement father figure, even going so far as calling him Father.

** The only thing known about the father of Samara's three children is that [[OneGenderRace she]] was an asari. ''Lair of the Shadow Broker'' mentions a memorial sphere of her among the belongings that Samara gave up when she became a Justicar, implying that Samara's bondmate died some time before their daughters were diagnosed as Ardat-Yakshi.



** What little James Vega mentions about his father doesn't paint their relationship in a good light. As the Reaper invasion means Shepard has a lot less time to sort out their teammates' personal issues, whatever caused the falling-out remains a mystery the whole game. The Homeworlds comic shows what happened.
** Kaidan Alenko previously stood out from the rest of Shepard's squad for the fact that he had two living parents and no particular problems with them, but when the Reaper War began, Kaidan's father reported for active duty and went MIA and was presumed dead.

* In ''The Escape'' (1997) the main character Clayton (Patrick Dempsey) is an escaped prisoner [[MiscarriageOfJustice wrongly convicted]] of murder for killing two men in self-defense. He hides out with Sarah (Brigitte Bako), revealing in a touching conversation that his father was a trumpet player who [[ParentalAbandonment abandoned him]] and only showed up once, playing a song for him. It's implied this lack of a good role model likely contributed to his downward spiral into prison.
