Tansy Lavande and familyHidden in the text there is the detail that Bennett was born in Grass Valley, CA. Perhaps we can assume that he lived on Bennett Street.

…I did in fact use some blocks of lorem ipsum for the text, but hey, a few more bits of Genuine Canon Information: he went to Dartmouth College (same as the fictional Colbert); his wife’s name is Phoebe (?!); he’s a Leo.

Also: Bennett’s mom, a geology professor, has a suspiciously similar vibe to Tansy Lavande, notable mom/geologist from Leif & Thorn. Is this a known character type? Am I subconsciously riffing on anyone in particular? A mystery for the ages.
