Name: Andrew Farkas
Sidekick: None, I am a lone Farkas.
Arch-Nemesis: In one particular case I had to hunt down the goddess Nemesis (seems she likes to take justice into her own hands), and she is now my arch-Nemesis. Her curse on me was, when answering who my arch-nemesis is, I am asked, “Who is your arch-nemesis,” and when I reply, “Nemesis,” my questioner hears a question mark at the end of my response, as if I were deeply pondering the question, never to give an answer, some parody of a Freudian psychologist. “Are you just saying the last word I say?” “Say?”
Fights Crime In: The Future Time
Notable Collars: Nemesis?
Other Notable Collars: Carmen Sandiego
Crime Detecting Mobile: Goodyear Blimp
If Bafflingly Murdered Would Want Investigation Led By: C. Auguste Marlowe. He would brilliantly deduce what had occurred, and then down a Scotch and finish with a wonderfully hardboiled one-liner.
You Didn’t Really Catch Carmen Sandiego, Did You?: Yes, in the United States and in the World. In Time, she eluded me.
Did Your Dad Help You Catch Carmen Sandiego?: My dad helped me catch some of the members of the Rogue’s Gallery, but somehow I caught Sandiego on my own both times.
Did You Run Around Acting As If You Had Accomplished Something Great, Looking for Someone to Celebrate with When You Caught Carmen Sandiego?: You bet. Alas, no one was home either time.
How Did You Celebrate?: After finding I was alone both times, I stared at the screen with a look that can only be compared to a Clint Eastwood stare, and pondered the fact that, whereas other people in the world may have been performing grand feats at the same time, for that one moment I felt as if no one had ever accomplished anything as great as I just had. And I have to say, now, when I finish a story I am particularly happy with, I have that same feeling. That same feeling I had when I apprehended Carmen Sandiego.
