The inofficial Worst Father of the Realms contest
Who makes the worst father of the Realms? Here is a quick rundown of my candidates:
Cernd: After getting his wife pregnant, but before he learns this (yeah right!), he runs off to serve nature. When he finds out he has a son, he hurriedly runs off to rescue the child - and leaves him with other druids while he goes off adventuring again! The rest, as they say, is history.
Coran: Runs out on his (pregnant and married) mistress. When he later learns that he has a daughter, he goes only so far as to save her life, before leaving the infant with the (now widowed) mother.
Keldorn Firecam: Leaves his family for extended periods of time to go adventuring. After almost losing them all because of his negligence, he ... goes adventuring again!
Cor Delryn: Out to prove that alcohol is a dissolving agent, Cor uses alcohol to dissolve not only his business but also his entire family.
Shandalar: Will forget that you murdered his three daughters after you bring him his magical cloak. (If you only burgle his house, he will even make this a polite request.)
Farmer Brun: Living in the middle of an Ankheg colony, this simple farmer doesn't teach his son that Ankheg hunting is a job better left to reasonably seasoned adventurers.
Entar Silvershield: The richest man in Baldur's Gate apparently can't afford a proper upbringing for his daughter Skie, such as teaching her not to go adventuring with the worst womanizer, spouse abuser, and charlatan on the Sword Coast.
Charname: Gorion's Ward chooses to become a god rather than face the life of a family man - leaving Aerie and little Quayle to fend for themselves.
Bhaal: Fathers a multitude of children shortly before his (long anticipated) death - hoping that they will butcher each others as fuel for his own rebirth!
