Maternal/Paternal Protagonist

Recommended Posts

What story and gameplay possibilities would open up, having a protagonist whose character is oriented around being a parent? I suppose the most obvious thing is a "scorned" sort of idea where the parents lose or are in danger of losing their children, but I was trying to consider other avenues; the relationship between husband and wife, divorce, raising a teenager, etc.

It might be more interesting to make the character the 'parent' of some unusual creature, a colony/settlement, or even a species. Parenting is good for exploring conflicts like protecting the child vs. teaching it self-reliance, micro-managing the child vs. allowing it independence, figuring out what way it is desireable for the child to mature and how to get the child to mature in that way, and defending the child from external threats.
