The Giver

He is a Nurturer at the Nurturing Center in his Community, and the father of Jonas and Lily, as well as the care-taker of Gabriel. In The Giver, he was seen releasing a newborn twin without remorse or second thought. However, this may be because like all of the other citizens apart from The Giver and Jonas, he doesn't have emotions.


Though he does not appear formally, Jonas mentions that he had people whom he called Mother and Father, while explaining to Gabriel why he has no parents.
