Sven Karlsen was the fictional father of Jerome Valeska created by Lila Valeska.


As she loved her son very much, in an attempt to give him a better father, Lila told him that his father was a man named Sven Karlsen, a sea captain who died while out in the sea. Paul Cicero later revealed this, when he admitted that he was in fact Jerome's father, while the two were being interrogated about the murder of Lila Valeska.[1]
