Empyrean- Can you save ----? (Spoilers?)

Is there a way to save your father in Empyrean (without siding with him)? I know he was a jerk but I really wanted to avoid killing him. I made life hell trying to keep him alive when I had a bunch of chances to kill him, just to have him die in the end anyway. I mean, I know he was kinda messed up but… He’s my father!
