Detective Biography

"I am not apologetic for the way I was raised. Why should I be?"

***

“When I was younger, a member of my family was murdered and Barry Grant was hired to solve the case. When the case was eventually solved, I was forever indebted to him and, thus, had to warn him when I came across some information that I believed put him in danger.

I broke into the War Department’s hospital, a classified facility, and warned Barry. I had heard Mr. Frank Georges, noted criminal mastermind and previous owner of the Marquee Theatre, threatening to kill Barry. Later investigations and prying -with the help Christopher Keller and other friends including Ran, Yoyo and Dr. Harrelson- revealed that Frank Georges had intended to end my life all along rather than Barry’s.

It turned out that due to linguistics, I misunderstood my name for Barry’s when it was uttered. I also discovered that Aisha Georges, the Arab wife of Frank Georges, is my birthmother. Though I was devastated, it explained a lot. My mother was always a little harder on me than she was on my siblings. I had always believed that it was simply because I was the only girl in the family and she had favoured the boys. Of course, that could still be true, but I will now always wonder if it is.

I disappeared shortly afterwards, leaving my good friends behind in Shanghai. I never heard from most of them again.

I went to Shangri La and spent months there, meditating and calming myself. I re-emerged composed and at peace with myself and all others. Of course, I never wanted to see the likes of Frank and Aisha Georges again, but I managed to somehow wish them well.

I returned to London.

As my train reached Victoria Station, there was a huge explosion and a woman who sat opposite me throughout the journey was killed. My detective instincts kicked in and with the help of my good friend Yoyo, I started investigating her death and the train explosion at Victoria.

This was followed by a series of unfortunate events: my brother Leopold lost his job due to his leaking of information that I needed from the Yard. My father, Sir Albert Parr, was taken ill. I stopped working and retired as a detective and started living off my savings. Leopold lost his London apartment and moved in with me. I kept all this from my parents and my savings are now supporting the both of us."
