Who were Connor's parents?

So we have no idea who Connor's parents were... Does anyone find it strange that he initially has the clothing style and haircut and younger looks of King Graham? He's almost a twin of Alexander's appearance in KQ5.

Could there be a connection? Was the young knight Sir Graham a bit errant in his younger days?

Could he be a prince and not know it? Kind of like a certain Arthur he's based on? Could Alex and Connor be step-brothers? Rosella his step-sister?

His mother may be dead, maybe she is the only one that knew!

  • Conor's parents were a condor and a lemur. It's odd when they mate.

    I don't think so, considering Roberta thought of the idea of a love triangle between he, Rosella and Edgar...Would be pretty awkward if he was her half brother.

  • Worse has happened in Arthurian legends (which Connor was based on)!

    How do you think Mordred came into being? Arthur and his step-sister Morgause!

    Besides it didn't have to go anywhere or that far, because more than likely Edgar would have won the triangle!

    Somehow I don't think Roberta was heading in the direction of a Lucas-esque incest subplot....Why does it matter who Connor's parents are? We only know who Graham and Valanice's parents are from the KQ companion.

  • Technically we knew some about Graham's father, and grandfather from Hoyle: Book of Games, Volume 1!

    BTW, haven't you realized that Love Triangle, is one type of 'soap opera' plot! Also overly used cliche in anxty teen drama!

    Soap Opera plots are one of the things you have a problem with in TSL right?

    It it could easily come off being similar to a Lancelot vs. Arthur adultress kind of love triangle...

    It's also interesting to note that in some of the earliest versions of KQ8, Connor's parentage was more important... As he was going to be the 'son of a poor fisherman'!

  • I've got to wonder if anybody cares about the insignificant minor minutia of King's Quest lore like Baggins does. I don't CARE who Connor's parents are.

  • Keep in mind this topic isn't completely serious ;)...

    In the earliest versions of the story;

    The backstory: Twenty years before the time of the game, a magic mask analogous to the Holy Grail exploded into seven pieces which - surprise - were scattered hither and yon on the cosmic winds. In this newest King's Quest installment, we meet Conner, the son of a poor fisherman, born at the instant of the momentous explosion and marked, figuratively and literally, by a piece of the enchanted shrapnel. In the present-day of Conner's 20th year, a horrible chaotic spell sweeps across the land - never mind why, it just does - turning all mortals to stone except the auspicious Conner. His only hope to restore the pebbled populace of Daventry is to locate the seven fragments of the mask...-Gamespot, May 1, 1996

    So this is who Connor's dad would have been;

    So this would have been his 'mother';

    The 'poor fisherman' and his wife from KQ4!
    ;)
