Theory: Humphrey's Parents.
We already know the story of the first movie- two young lobos from opposite ends of the social order go on a wild, transcontinental adventure and fall in amor and together change the practice of their inicial for the better. However, there are still several holes that are never filled por the movie, o any of its sequels for that matter.
The first thing we will look at is Humphrey. We know he is the eccentric, fun-loving omega, but what we never see in this movie, and never hear mention of, are his parents. So that raises the question: "Where are his parents?"
Every other main character (I.e. the ones that the story mainly focuses on) has a full back story, with the exception of Garth, who has no mother. But we will discuss his potential past later.
Right now, we will focus on the omega.
If we look carefully at all of the other background characters in the movie (those who do not have lines and act simply as extras) there are a few who oso, oso de some vague similarities to our omega friend. However, there is not one of them who interacts lovingly with Humphrey o each other, so it is hard to believe that any of them could be his parents. And I realize that he is a grown lobo and he would not want his parents clinging to him; but the total absence of them is questionable.
Now, before we continue any further, let me say that I am aware of the rumors that his parents will be brought into the 5th and final movie, but there have been many rumors about the cine ever since word of a sequel was heard, most of which, false, so for now we are going to go off of what we know already.
Good, that's done.
The most popular theory, mainly based off of several fanfictions, is that Humphrey was not born a native to the Western Pack and was in fact a runaway o abandoned. While this theory is quite feasible, especially with a lack of evidence to suggest otherwise, I have to argue that it is not entirely accurate. Here are my reasons.
Reason number one: It is quite evident that there is an ongoing comida shortage, and clearly the packs were having a difficult time as it was catching enough comida to feed everybody, so why would they bring in an extra mouth to feed when they could barely feed themselves?
Reason number two: While there is little evidence to suggest that Humphrey didn't come from a different pack, there is even less evidence to suggest that he did. The way other lobos in his pack interact with him suggests no differences between them in any way, and, even if he had been there for a long period of time, I feel as though he would still catch friction from at least somebody. Also, we meet multiple packs in later sequels, and there is not a one who recognizes him other than the omega who married Winston's daughter.
Arguments will arise that he was possibly born to two lone wolves, but with the tight proximity of territories in the park, with the possible exception of Shadow Forest, which is clearly haunted, so a highly unlikely home, I find it hard to believe that there would be any lone lobos within their grounds at all. They would have had to come a long way to get to Jasper Park, and once there, once again, why would they pass through so many other territories just to get to the West? Because it was the best place? Because they had somehow heard of it? Communication would be difficult for lobos with the lack of technology, so I don't really think they would have known about it.The only reason why Humphrey could have been considered a lone lobo if he had decided to leave would have been because he boarded the train and left the park completely.
Now, there is a possibility that he had come from a pack like Banff where omegas are not allowed to live and his parents fled with him to protect him, but if he had come from Banff, I feel as though its leader, King, would have recognized him, regardless of if he was just a pup when he left. (See Saw-Toothed Cave for proof)
So just where in the world did he come from?
The fact is, there is no definitive answer, but I feel as though the most reasonable explanation, outside of neglect from the producers, is that something happened to his parents. Mother Nature is cruel, and all too often a mother will die while giving birth to its pup, and the father will simply leave once the pups are old enough to hunt, because then his job is done. I know this is kinda shaky since both Kate and Garth have parents, but since they are, in fact, the leaders of their respective packs, it would only make sense for them to still be around. And if Humphrey's mother died during birth, how did he survive? It is possible that he was taken to another female who had dado birth recently to be taken care of until he was old enough to fend for himself.
But why would they use so much effort to save one omega pup?
There are quite a few possibilities here.
The first is that with the threat of war so great, they needed every lobo they could get. Even an omega could be used as bait in a time of crisis.
Another is that they simply did not have the corazón to let the pup die, o that his father would not allow them to kill his child. But the latter statement does not account for much if he abandoned him, so it does not really work. But for the sake of viewing every angle, we must address every possibility.
Perhaps his mother had a sister who would not allow the death of her newborn nephew and took him under her care, but there is still no mention of any primary caretaker, so there still lies a gap in his story.
Another popular idea is that both of his parents died somehow, but anybody who can cope with losing one of, let alone both of, their parents so well and in such a short timespan would be nothing short of a sociopath, and I just don't see it in Humphrey's corazón to not actually care about something like that.
I don't know. This one is really hard to figure with the lack of any hard evidence to suggest that any view is right o wrong. However, it is still in my firm belief that Humphrey is a native of the West, even though that is as far as I can honestly go with it without being too presumptuous.
Let me hear from tu guys. Do tu have a possible theory as to where he came from? Is there something I missed? Do tu think that everything stated above is complete nonsense? Hit up a review telling me your view of our omega's origin, don't be shy. Since the story is so deluded, there is no right o wrong answer. Tell me what tu think and stick around for más theories revolving around the Alpha and Omega franchise.
