My Hero Academia chapter 426 reveals the conclusion to Endeavor’s character arc, as he retires from being a pro-hero in order to focus on redeeming himself and doing everything he can to restore his family mental state to normalcy.

Dabi is going to die pretty soon so Endeavor may as well spend most of his time with him. With the others, he needs to make sure they’re settled mentally. For instance, Fuyumi quit her job, but the mother of one of her students found her a new one. Natsu says that Endeavor has already taken responsibility and can stop now, but he says that he intends to pay and apologize for his crimes for the rest of his life, hence the retirement.

Endeavor retiring means he has put his goal of surpassing All Might to rest and changed it into serving his family. I mean, it’s the least he could do, to be honest, after all the trauma they had to undergo just to make him into a “hero”.

Crunchyroll describes Season 1 of My Hero Academia as follows:

Izuku has dreamt of being a hero all his life—a lofty goal for anyone, but especially challenging for a kid with no superpowers. That’s right, in a world where eighty percent of the population has some kind of super-powered “quirk,” Izuku was unlucky enough to be born completely normal. But that’s not enough to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies.
