The Sargeant family are a married couple living in Twinbrook. It consists of Bobby Sargeant and his wife Scout Sargeant. Both are adults 14 days away from ageing up. Bobby is employed as a Squad Leader in the Military career, while Scout works in the Vice Squad in the Special Agent branch of the Law Enforcement career. While Scout is on track to complete her lifetime wish of becoming an International Super Spy, Bobby might want to switch careers to the Investigator track introduced in Ambitions, in order to fulfill his wish to become a Persuasive Private Eye.
The relationship between the two is not particularly high, though they are friends. They are both friends with Wei Keane, and share three common enemies: Wei's housemates Lang Gwydd and Justin Kayes, and Anna-Liza Riddle - who is also Wei's enemy and Justin's best friend. How this web of animosity developed is never explained, and is up to the player's imagination.
"Sargeant" is a rank used in some form by most militaries, police forces, and other uniformed organizations around the world. Its origins are the Latin serviens, "one who serves", through the French term Sergent.
A common diminutive nickname for "Robert", which is a German masculine name meaning "famed", "bright", or "shining".
A unisex nickname that is not particularly associated with any given name. It comes from the English vocabulary word meaning "one who gathers information covertly", which in turn is derived from the Old French word "ecouter", meaning "to listen". Its use as a female nickname is often a reference to the narrator-protagonist of Harper Lee's 1960 novel To Kill A Mockingbird.
