    Gene's Mother

    I haven't actually read the manga yet (looking forward to someday), so my apologies if this is addressed therein (in which case, this would probably belong in the manga forum, not the anime but I digress): Do we know anything about Gene's mother? We see he is clearly fond of his father, and his
    separation from his dad at an early age
    clearly affected him profoundly.

    I can see that it may not have been very relevant to the story for the sake of pacing (the flashbacks involving his father are scant, and used only for dramatic effect due to Gene's last interaction with his father being so traumatic), but still there is not one mention of her in the anime. Why? Do we ever get any insight into this? Or is it just meant to be a mystery?

    If it is currently unknown, I suppose that leaves room for healthful, innocent speculation. What do you think happened to Gene's mom? Deadbeat parent? Passed away? Incarcerated? What could it be? (Is she where he gets his red hair from???)



    Btw If you know, please use spoiler tags!

    It's a good question, and you're right about her not being mentioned once in the anime. I don't know about the manga yet but I've seen no mention on the Wikia. On the other hand, we're told much less about Jim's dad than Gene's, but we know he was a famous hacker dubbed the Computer Wizard. Jim only mentions his mother very briefly once in the show.

    I have a feeling we'll learn more about all of this from the drama CD, or at least gain more of a basis for speculation...
    Gene: "Have faith in me guys, enjoy the ride—you're in good hands. I can handle this. I can do it!"
    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    Oh, I got it! Gene's mother...was a powerful caster of mana, old magic, and left Gene's dad because she was too preoccupied with quests, and a tall, blond love interest, and...and...umm...

    I swear I was serious when I actually started this thread. Honest!

    Slayers, eh? Your thread was an inspiration for my Gwen's Day article, so I'm glad you made it!

    Jim: "How do you know?"

    Slayers... that's one that did not age well for me.
    Awkward pacing I think, but I dunno.

    STILL! Luv them Lina fireballs!
