- "I always understood your brother, Barry. But as much as I loved Jay, I never loved you any less."
- —Henry Allen to his son, Barry[src]
Henry Allen is a retired police officer of the Central City Police Department. He is the husband of Nora Allen, the father of the late Barry Allen and the late Jay Allen, and the grandfather of Shawn Allen.
As a father, Henry was particularly close to Jay and took every opportunity to praise him, especially when his son entered law enforcement as well. However, Henry was distant from Barry as he grew up, to the point that Barry felt that Henry had failed as a father. Ultimately though, Henry loved both his sons equally.
