In the game, players are allowed to customize the Avatar's appearance to their liking.
In the comics, the artists of the issues tailor the Dad to their own interputation of the customizable character. In "Much Abird About Nothing," the character is red-haired, fair-skinned man with a beard, a mesomorphic build and blue eyes; in "Dream Ad-y," the character is dark-skinned, blad with dark eyes and a mesomorphic build.
The Avatar's biography is revealed within different parts of the game and is tailored to how the player decides their character should be. Prior to the starting events, you were partnered with Alex and both agreed to care for your daughter Amanda Ann. Upon taking her in, there was a minor car incident that leaves the Avatar panicky. There is no exact moment when Alex passed away; the Avatar, however, continues to care for their daughter through the years.
Twenty years later, the Avatar and Amanda are packing and moving to a new house in the Maple Bay cul-de-sac, where the player can have a choice in venturing the neighborhood or staying home to unpack.
