I believe some of us have used characters who are atoning for their sins. ut right now, I'm in a bit of trouble on how it would end up in the end.

I mean, what are the chances that the atoner has been forgiven? Or when atoner was not forgiven.

My idea at first would be a father atoning at his son for not being with him when the son needed it the most. Yet in the end, the son never forgave him for the damage of the hurtful past cannot be repaired
