The man presumably had a good relationship with his daughter, Siobhan Smythe, as she grew up. However, when Siobhan was 17, she caught her father having an affair with his personal assistant. The next day, the man tearfully apologized to his daughter, claiming that he was sorry, really loved her mother, and would end the affair. While Siobhan believed him, this betrayal created a permanent rift between them.
Years later, the man was discovered by a now adult Siobhan to have been a platinum member of Diamond Discretions, an infidelity website, which exposed his lies and further destroyed their already fragile relationship.
The man's affair greatly affected his daughter, making Siobhan believe that friendliness and compassion were just lies, partly contributing to her self-centered attitude.
Behind the scenes
- In the comics, Siobhan's father is Garrett Smythe. He murdered his own son Tommy when Siobhan refused to follow his in footsteps. After his supposed death, he became the villain Black Banshee.
