Chell daughter of Cave Johnson theory put to rest

Discussion in 'Portal' started by Resonance_Gamer, Sep 25, 2014.

  1. This theory is very incorrect because of how the Half-Life/Portal timeline is set out:

    Late 1980's (so 1986 - 1989): Cave Johnson dies
    200X (presumed to be 2003 due to Raising the Bar): Bring Your Daughter to Work Day, Rise of GLaDOS, and Black Mesa Incident
    2010: Portal 1

    Based on the science project for BYODTW made by Chell seen in Portal 2, she was about 10-ish in 2003.

    2003 - 10 = 1993, 7 - 4 years after Cave Johnson's death.

    Thus, Chell is not related to Cave Johnson whatsoever.

    EDIT: Also, Chell's race

    She's Brazilian/Japanese, Cave is American

    I didn't even know this was a theory... but what an awful reality this theory suggests... you company runs out of money sooooooo you put your own daughter as a test subject!? And you know all the terrible crap your own company does.
     
  3. Chell was adopted by a staff member of Aperture (who presumably died during GLaDOS' rise), and taken to work during "Bring Your Daughter to Work Day". She wasn't brought in as a test subject. GLaDOS herded up the survivors and put them in test chambers for backlog testing.

    No I'm talking about in the "cave johnson is chell's father theory." No need to correct me, I made it clear that I didn't believe that by saying "That theory suggest that"
    I was just trying to point out that Cave didn't seem like that bad of a dad.
     
  5. Woops, sorry, I think I read it in a wrong context or something XD

    Nice catch. Never really thought about that myself. I would think Valve knows their own timelines, lol.

    Although he died before her birth doesn't mean he couldn't have impregnated Chell's mother first.
     
  9. A 4 - 7 year pregnancy? I seriously doubt that.
