|Portrayed by|| John Scarangello (1976) |

Colin Blake is the father of Sarah Blake.
After his wife died when Sarah was 13, he went on to raise her as a single father. In 1976, he was convicted of a crime and imprisoned, his plan to have Sarah stay with her aunt to finish school. But she stood by him every step of the way.
With nowhere to go and nobody else to turn to, Sarah found solace in the Jackals, a notorious and dangerous motorcyle gang. Tragically, she was murdered by Jackals' leader "Shameless" in 1976..
Upon hearing about his daughter's murder, Colin tried to break out of prison, injuring a guard in the process and getting his sentence doubled.
In 2009, after his release, somebody had slipped a photo of Sarah on the back of a motorcyle branding the name "Jackals", the photo dating back to the 4th of July in 1976. He then took it to detectives, hoping to find out what had happened Sarah.
He also knew Burke, a member of the Jackals. The Jackals had sold him out to protect their drug trade; Colin was the only one who ever helped him so in return Burke gave the detectives a lead on Sarah's murder.
After Sarah's killer is revealed and arrested, Colin is finally given peace. He and Lily then "see" her at the lot where she died as he lays down flowers and her picture.
