  • Kenneth DiLaurentis - Kenneth DiLaurentis is the patriarch of the DiLaurentis family. He is the father of Alison, the adoptive father of Charles/Charlotte, as well as, the legal father of Jason. Kenneth was distant and harsh toward his family, which lead to him being distant during his children's childhood. After adopting Charles, Jessica became pregnant with a boy, Jason. Kenneth believed Jason to be his son. A few years later, Kenneth noticed that Charles was portraying feminine qualities and identified more with female associated activities. He condoned the behavior, but it wasn't until Charles almost drowned a baby Alison in the bathtub that Kenneth insisted Charles be put in a mental institution. Jessica disagreed seeing as Charles didn't mean to harm Alison, he was just trying to soothe her. Charles was later admitted upon Kenneth's insistence. He then removed all signs of Charles from their lives and acted as if he never existed, and focused his energies on expanding his real estate company. After Alison went missing, Kenneth divorced Jessica as she served as a reminder of the daughter he lost. He remained distant until Alison reappeared, which was when he returned to Rosewood and appeared to care for her. After the revelation of Charlotte, Kenneth distanced himself from his daughters and presumably, hasn't spoken to any of his children in years. He did not attend Charlotte's funeral. It is also unclear when, how, or if, Kenneth ever found out Jason wasn't his son.

Mary's sister, Jessica and her husband, Kenneth, adopted Charlotte into the DiLaurentis family and legally changed her name to "Charles DiLaurentis". Charles lived with the family including her siblings/cousins Alison and Jason until she was seven-years-old.

When Charlotte received word that her enemy from Radley, Bethany Young, was planning to escape Radley and kill Jessica, Charlotte decided to kill Bethany to protect her mother.
