In chapter 6 of SotG when Bean is starting to interogate Volescue in Fortress Rowanda, V says, in referring to returning to Hegemony Compound, "How is my sister and her husband?" to bean. I think this might be a mistake... Shouldn't he refer to his brother and his wife? (i.e. Julian Delphiki, Sr. and Elaina) We know nothing about a possible sister of Volescue and, even if we did, she has no connection to Bean, does it?

Seems like it was Bean's father that Volescu was related to.
Welcome to Hatrack, by the way.

It's not a bug, it's a feature. Volescu is, um, showing old-fashioned courtesy by putting the lady first in the sentence; and she is his sister-in-law, which naturally he shortens to just 'sister'. [/fanboy spin]
