Characters which are Parents, regardless of age or even if the child is still alive. For Kim and Company's generation, the story must implicitly state them as parents. Applies to both genders; do NOT make Mothers and or Fathers.
- Example: "Nana" Possible even though her children are grown with their own kids.
- A character, usually Male, need not know they have a child, but it must be stated in the story. Example: Zita keeping secret from Ron he is the father of her newest "little brother".
- Does NOT apply to miscarriages and stillbirths. The child must be born.
- For now includes Grandparents and more as well.
