So, what do you think then? All - the father, David....
List them out.
I doesn't care, do I?

What does that even mean?

List all your hypothesis on this subject. Everything - your ideas on the location of the father, why David didn't tell Main.... everything.

There isn't enough info on the father to even guess his location.

My hypothesis on why David didn't talk: Craig didn't want to side track the story of the Hero and David's reunion by having David cry about his parents.  Plus, it allows the Nameless One to reveal a secret that ties the games together.

No, that he IS the TRPG1 and TRPG2 main, and his parents died when he was young
Currently tied with Zack for the title of Master of Light!

He can't be. TRPG1 and 2 Hero is intentionally gender-neutral.

Close, but not exactly.  I think there is also a good chance of the Nameless One being David.

He can't be. TRPG1 and 2 Hero is intentionally gender-neutral.
The Nameless One has also remained gender-neutral.  Can you prove that he/she is a man/women within the dialogue?

Haven't we been over this?

Would you call a woman an "old codger"?

I wouldn't call anyone "old codger", because it is a rude term for the eccentric elderly.  It still seems like a genderless phrase to me.

Guys, you're going off topic. Anyway, my thoughts:

1. The father could be the Nameless One.
2. I think 'old codger' is a bit tilted to male.
I doesn't care, do I?

Except David said that the Hero is the last of his family.

Well done completely ignoring my small input.

I doubt the father is the nameless one. Not only is it disregarding the phrase 'We're the only ones left', it is extremely unlikely, given the age that he would likely be.

I recall Craig saying that the time between TRPG2 and SoG are 20 years. David couldn't be the Nameless One.
