What about you?
Did you already figure out what this is all about?

Perhaps Tarik is under the (mistaken?) impression that Jade is a blood relation to a certain Sir Arthur C.?

Yup, that's kinda what's going on in Tarik's head! ^^

How mistaken is Tarik's assumption though?
Sir Arthur C. of course was British, while Jade's family are Americans who have been living in Anvil Flats for quite a while. (You'd have to ask lirvilas when exactly they're supposed to have immigrated.)
But I think if there's any relation, it ought to be only a rather distant one...

uh yeah, mistakes and lies are totally fair game, but any distant relationship with Sir Arthur is definitely not canon

On Christmas and New Year's Eve we'll see where Tarik's little delusion (Or self-delusion? He isn't stupid, after all.) will lead to...
Damoinion (Guest) edit delete reply
Given that particular delusion, I wonder if he considers there to be a Moriarty equivalent around?

Haha - no, Tarik isn't that delusional! :-D
(Though him actually trying out being a detective for realz is something on my list of plot ideas...)

Also, this world's Moriarty us clearly Dr. Ashton, for she's a mad scientist who already (almost) killed one of the Doyles...
