Connor never knew his father. As a child, he entertained himself with made-up stories where he and his dad somehow found each other, and went on palaeontological expeditions and had wild and dangerous adventures together. In his imagination, his father was always handsome, brave, and intelligent. He was a hero.
In his imagination, his father wanted him.
Connor understands about paternal role-model substitution. He tries not to think about it too hard, especially when every word of praise or approval, every smile, every touch from Cutter reminds him of those childhood fantasies.
He suspects Freud would have a field day.
