This unnamed man was the father of Hilary.
When his daughter Hilary was twelve years old, she developed a serious heart condition. The man took her to the hospital and watched over her closely by her bedside. According to Tessa, he had no other relatives left.
One day, through miraculous means, Hilary recovered and the man was excited. He told Hilary that they were going to go on a vacation. That night, before they had left the hospital, the man dozed off and woke up to find his daughter dead.
Much to his sorrow, the doctor could not revive Hilary.
