A “carrier” is someone who can potentially pass on a gene containing variant(s) associated with a condition; but he or she does not actually suffer from this condition. Condition only occurs when both parents pass on a gene with variant(s) to their child. If only one parent passes on this gene, child (carrier) does not suffer from this condition.
