He is more than willing to make his father proud of who he is as a person since he feels that there is no one else he could look up to. He also has trust issues with women, due to his dark past where they either used him as an object, abandoned him or straight up treat him horribly.

Gerald and Tori started off as a happily married couple that worked in the same agency, G Headquarters. However, as the years went by, Gerald's and Tori marriage life became weaker. Whenever Tori would call out on Gerald for his mistakes, he would lash out on her and start abusing her. She knew she had to stay strong for her son, who didn't know what was going on at the time.
After her son injured himself outside, Tori uses this as an opportunity to escape the household by taking him to the hospital in her car. As Tori drove her way to the hospital, she started recording a video of herself on her phone to describe what a despicable person Gerald is and how she plans to raise Brandon by herself as a single mom and continue to make his life happy. She then sends the video to a few of her friends. Gerald then manages to catch up to her by speeding illegally. Gerald then caught up to her and tried to stop her with his car, resulting in Tori crashing her car in the forest near a pond. They both ended up in the hospital. Her son recovered fro his injury, but she had lost her memory completely.
Many years later, Gerald and Tori had divorced. Tori started living her new life independently, while Gerald continued to raise Brandon by himself. Till this day, she is still seeking the truth about her past and how she ended up losing her memory.Gerald
