So an extremely common trait amongst main characters in superhero stories is being orphans and/or only children, almost always with at least one missing or absent parent.

In the cases it is not there is a pattern that is almost always there:

Twins

Twins+usually absent other sibling (or thought dead), who is typically a younger

Two siblings of same gender but different ages.

So how about your character's?

Well, his mother and father aren't missing, but don't really stay in contact so it's up in the air on that one.

His adopted younger brother is trying to track down both him and his parents.

Doc was abandoned but was taken in by a tough yet fair man. However, that man died of age. Now, he has found his childhood friend.

Katrin doesn't have any parents. Her sister prototypes are all deactivated and her "father" (Dr. Peters) is recently deceased of natural causes. There ware rumors of one more Valkyrie unit but Kat doesn't believe them.

  • Two parents. Both are alive.
  • Considers Abigail Aensland a sort of bigger sister, and her Butler Alastair as a sort of Uncle figure.

After being hunted down and easily captured by the Black Dog, Amani stays away from any immediate family, believing herself to endangering everyone around her.

This is a super cool thread, I approve. Great way to learn more about different characters.

Kaede:

Both parents living. Father (Toshiro Mitsuri) owns a telecommunications company based in New York City. Mother (Madeline Mitsuri) does pseudo-jobs as a member of various boards, mostly involved in telling people what to do. Oldest sister Kanna (18) is finishing high school and expects to be attending college in the fall. After getting her degree, she expects to work with her father's business. Other sister Kirin (16) is a junior in high school, currently mostly interested in Boys, Socialization, and Driving her Little Sister Crazy, not necessarily in that order. Twin brother (Toshiro) killed in a car accident when he and Kaede were 7.

Kaede's parents know about her abilities, her siblings do not. Currently Kaede is away from home on the public premise that she is attending a private boarding school. In truth she is training with the Teen Team, though she is not sure what ends she is training towards, precisely. Kaede is quite fond of the Teen Team members, who seem to have more or less adopted her as their surrogate little sister. She's pretty happy about that, as the Teen Team girls make good sisters.

Nathan Gray:

Born Nathan Graie near Minneapolis, Minnesota. Ran away from home at 16 with his girlfriend Saikea. As far as he knows, his parents and younger sister Alison (omg spoilers!!) are still living in the Minneapolis area, but he hasn't had any contact with them in 12 years. Girlfriend is still living in Some Unspecified Location, where she is happily working as an Evil Overlord / Mad Scientist.

Tristan's mother was murdered by his father, who lately died of a heart attack (definitely NOT caused by Ace, nope nope nope). His young cousin Liam is in the asylum right now, and Trist plans to file for adoption after the Ice and Faerie event. Ace and Ann are brother and sister (a blog post in the more or less near future) and are considered family by both Liam and Tristan.

You all make your bios depressing. ;P

- Parents are still alive and well, although his father is a police officer and engages in dangerous situations. His mother is a doctor and works in a local hospital.

- Has no brothers or siblings.

And that is all I'm giving since I have not completely finished my bio.

@admirallogic

Paragon has no siblings. Keira's mother is the CEO of Hawke Industries, her Dad is the owner of the Ace of Clubs in Metro City.

Superion has no siblings. Both parents are still alive.

Sarah and Lara are twins, both parents still alive and well. The twins hardly ever talk to each other anymore and they used to be close.

Theron King's family is dead but he has an adopted daughter.

Warrior Angel has a large family considering she's a Knightfall. Both parents are dead, though, and no direct siblings. Just cousins, aunts, uncles, etc, she doesn't even know or met.

Hal Knight has a sister and they work together in the reporter business. Both parents still alive, Uncle is dead.

Lucas Knight (no relation to Hal). His entire family is dead.

Renegade here has parents and a brother who want nothing to do with her because she's a mutant. She hasn't seen them in years.

Nemesis has a father but he was murdered.

Zephyr has no siblings, mother is dead I believe and her father is a sadistic villain bent on destroying her.

Elite can't even remember if she has a family.

Kat McCloud has a family but never speaks of them.
