Might depict what has arisen in your life out of relationship with father. Or the dream might depict your relationship with authority, or a view of how you use power of authority. See conformity.

An authority figure in dreams can suggest many things, depending on the theme of the dream. So it could indicate your own best sense or intuition; a know it all attitude, which might be ‘I am right and you are wrong because I am the authority’. Or it can be about dependence and wanting someone to tell you what to do and where to go.

Useful Questions and Hints:

Am I the authority in the dream?

Am I in a passive relationship with the authority?

Am I learning or teaching anything?
