Some of my characters have terrible family backgrounds and some of them I consider more being extremely human and having faults.
Echo's father loved Echo very much, but he didn't know how to help her through her problems. Through Echo's eyes in Pushing the Limits, he seemed extremely tough, but at the end, she realized that he did love her.
Haley in Take Me On has fantastic parents, but her father has hit a tough spot. We're just witnessing Haley during this difficult moment.
