- Eric and Kitty's real parents are missing.
- Eric mentions that his parents had died in a carnival accident.
- Even though we see Kitty's parents, they are androids. We don't know what happened to Kitty's real parents, it's most likely that they are killed, abandoned her when she was a baby or both. She mentions that she has a a cousin who is 100 years older than her. This could mean that her family had suffered the same fate as her parents.
