Dr. Daniel Stinger is the biological father of Kirsten Clark on Stitchers. He is also the father of Ivy Brown. He is portrayed by C. Thomas Howell in Season 1 and by Jonathan Emerson in Season 2.


Daniel Stinger was one of the creators of the algorithm that makes stitching possible. When his wife fell into a coma after being in a car accident, he attempted to use the technology and his young daughter to bring his wife back. He was unaware of the consequences of stiching into a person who wasn't deceased, and as a result, his wife died and left Kirsten sufferring from Temporal Dysplasia. Shortly after this incident, he left Kirsten in the care of Ed Clark, a family friend. 

He also left his other daughter Ivy Brown when she was very little, as well as Elizabeth Stinger.

His current whereabouts are unknown.
