Straker's Father

Does anyone know if there is any mentioning of Ed's Dad in the series? I don't remember anything at all so it's probably a wide open field.

Thanks,

Matt  Smiley

It is.  Nothing was said of either of his parents except that one small reference in ESP when Croxley gets mad because he's thinking of his mother.  It's impossible to tell from the comment whether she was living or dead at the time.  So, yes.  It's wide open to any interpretation you want to give it.  Go for it!  Cool

His father is not mentioned but I imagined him as a Former Military man who had seen too many horrors and became embittered  and descended into the horrors of Alcoholism, alienating his family which explained why Ed was teetotal

I always felt that Ed was teetotal because he was a control freak,and alcohol makes you lose your inhibitions.. something he never did!
ALthough your idea about his father being an alcoholic is good.

OMG!  Shocked  I just had a thought!  What if Straker lost his inhibitions?  Not just sexually -- like Dragon did it -- but altogether?  Shocked  Wouldn't THAT be the story to write?  Cheesy

Former military would work well for what I have in mind. And the alcohalism aspect makes seense as well. Something to mull over. I just wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything significant from the series.  Smiley

Sounds like Denise is cooking up another good story! Wink
Can't wait to read it.  Smiley
