"Don't forget to drop the key off at the Myers place."
―Morgan to Laurie Strode[src]

Morgan Strode, is a character who first appeared in the original Halloween. He was simply referred to as "Father" in the credits of the first film, with the novelization identifying him instead as Chester Strode. A deleted scene in Halloween II finally gave him the name of Morgan Strode.


Morgan Strode was the father (adoptive father in all timelines that consider Halloween 2 canon) of Laurie Strode and the husband of Pamela Strode. The owner of Strode Real Estate, he asked Laurie to drop off a set of keys to the derelict Myers house. Unbeknownst to him when he told Laurie to drop off the keys it would unleash a series of events that would involve Laurie coming face to face with Michael Myers [1] Later that night, Morgan and his wife went to a Halloween party. It is unknown what time they got home as the hospital kept trying to call them as their daughter was there.[2] They eventually learned that their daughter Laurie had been attacked by Michael.

H20 Timeline

Morgan and his wife were forced to tell Laurie of her true lineage and this caused a strain between them and their daughter. On Laurie's birthday, Morgan had bought her a new car but she did not accept the gift and only wanted them to leave her alone. Pamela tried to tell her husband to give their daughter more time as Laurie was still angry over the lies.[3]

When Laurie's graduation came, the relationship was still strained as they attended her graduation but she still did not want them there.[4]


It is currently unknown what had happened to Morgan and his wife, as neither of them have made an appearance or have been mentioned after the graduation incident.
