Father figures were never apparent in Eva Luna. Consuelo never knew her father. she would say, "That a Dutch sailor had set her adrift in a rowboat."(pg. 2). Eva Luna never quite had a father figure either. She had Professor Jones who never really liked kids and Riad Halabi who she ended up having an affair with. Rolf Carle and his siblings never had a solid father figure either. Lukas Carle would mentally and physically abuse his kids along with abandoning them.
