- "My father comes from a world where a man is measured by how many tackles he made in high school or how many beer cans he can crush against his skull."
- —Sylvester about Kenneth
Kenneth Dodd is the father of Sylvester Dodd and a retired Army Colonel who specialized in unconventional weapons.
He loved Sylvester since birth, but never knew how to show it as he couldn't understand him. He traveled a lot, searching for unconventional weapons, and never spent much time with his son.
- He may have a brother, or a sister who married, or a brother-in-law through his wife as Sylvester mentioned he has an uncle, but never said from which side and whether it was through blood or marriage.
