If anyone is wondering, Ash’s father Einar is completely fictional and isn’t based off of anyone in my own life (certainly not based on my own dad, who seldom drinks and tends to be quite conservative in his personal life). While I can’t say there’s one definitive source of inspiration for the character, I can say that at least part of it is inspired from the dark comedy TV show “Titus” that aired in America close to 20 years ago. Specifically, the father character Ken Titus who was played (wonderfully) by Stacy Keach. It’s not easy to find on DVD, but as of the time of this post it is still available to watch on YouTube. If you like somewhat dark, twisted humor and aren’t easily offended, I highly recommend seeing it.
