Do you think John Boddy and Josephine Scarlett are cousins?

Post by Jonathan Green »

In Miss Scarlett's bio for the 2000s games, it's hinted that she is the love child of Sir Hugh (Boddy's uncle) and her mother Mrs. Peacock.

Do you think their actually related? 'Cause I do.

I like to think that we live in a nice world and not the one you just created. Sure there may be suggestions that Peacock and Black were "special friends" around the same time Miss Scarlett came to be, but going as far to say that Scarlett and Boddy are cousins would leave some negative connotations. It would put all the advances Scarlett gave to Boddy under a whole new light which I'm sure Hasbro was not going for. I mean it's a kids game after all. But in the end, who knows? Only those who have the complete bios of the suspects.

I believe that John Boddy found out that he and Josephine were related after Sir Hugh's death. He found a old note to his uncle which basically said
"Hugh, the baby's yours."

Boddy recognized that handwriting was from Mrs. Elizabeth Peacock Scarlett (Now Mrs. Peacock), the only woman Sir Hugh show any affection for after the death of Mrs. Rose Black five years prior (Boddy's aunt). Mrs. Scarlett had one daughter, Josephine, who shared a lot of similarities with Sir Hugh Black. Both have blue eyes and dark brown hair.

He asked for a private DNA test to be done between Hugh Black and Josephine Scarlett; the results came positive.

Since then, Mr. Boddy had treated Miss Scarlett like a little sister. Sure Scarlett flirted with Boddy, but Boddy payed no mind to it.

He thought he should tell her the truth on his thirtieth birthday, which may or may not lead to his death.
