Bastian's father is a dental technician who works in his home laboratory. When Bastain was young his father would tell him stories and play with him, though he is described as becoming distant when his wife (Bastian's mother) dies unexpectedly and an "invisible wall" appears around him. He buys Bastian whatever he wants and spends time in his presence though rarely speaks to him, making Bastian feel neglected.<blockquote>''"[Bastian] couldn’t talk to his father anymore. There was an invisible wall around his father, and no one could get through to him. He never found fault and he never praised. Even when Bastian was put back in school, his father hadn't said anything. He had only looked at him in his sad, absent way, and Bastian felt that as far as his father was concerned he wasn’t there at all. That was how his father usually made him feel."''</blockquote>In the final chapter when Bastian returns home his father listens to him explain his adventures in the Neverending Story and they reconcile.
