"I think we need a vacation...."
The young cousin of Indiana Jones spent several summers with the archaeologist throughout the 1930s.
Biography[edit | edit source]
In 1933, the boy was sent by his parents to spend the summer vacation with Jones. When he arrived, he found his Cousin Indy had been given an assignment to recover an artifact known as the Ebony Dove from an island in the Coral Sea named Malekula, also known as "Horror Island".
Five years later, the boy was eager to join his cousin on another adventure. While his parents disapproved following the events of the previous journey, Indiana wasn't keen on the idea either and had kept refusing for months before eventually he decided to simply give his cousin a fun trip to Venice, Italy instead. However, the excursion became another adventure for the two when Indiana's old friend Giacamo Andrini lured them in with the chance to discover the gold hoard of Genghis Khan.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Indiana Jones' cousin was one of the main characters in the Find Your Fate Adventure role playing books, where the reader would be placed as a protagonist alongside Indiana Jones. As such details about the character were kept intentionally vague, including his name. In placing the reader as Jones' cousin, however, it does present the question of who his parents are in relation to Jones. Whether he is the younger brother of Frank, a child of Pete or an unintroduced sibling of Henry or Anna Jones has yet to be confirmed.
