Added DiffLines:

** EDI does ''not'' have abandonment issues from being on the other side from the Illusive Man, who she does ''not'' see as a father figure. This comes up because Shepard noticed the pattern and specifically asked.

** Two of the three possible origins of [[PlayerCharacter Commander Shepard]] involve parental abandonment: in one (Colonist), both of Shepard's parents were killed when slavers raided the colony they lived in, and in the other (Earthborn), Shepard grew up on the streets of Earth and never knew his or her parents at all. Averted with the Spacer origin -- both of Shepard's parents are alive and well, and a sidequest in the first game even involves having to call up your mom.

* ''RuneFactory3'' nearly takes this UpToEleven. ''No one'' has two parents, and most of the cast has none whatsoever, and there is absolutely no explanation. The missing relatives are as follows: Raven, Gaius, Pia, Kuruna, Oromis, Zaid, Daria, Shara, Monica, and Marion have no parents. Sakuya and Karina have no father. Sofia, Evelyn, Colette, and Rusk have no mother. To the best of my knowledge, the only character who actually acknowledges the fact that she has no living family is Raven. [[spoiler: The hero's father gets one line of dialogue in a flashback, and the hero calls for his mother in the same flashback, but otherwise they never appear.]]
