The Darling Mermaid Darlings were a famed synchronized swimming duo that have performed at many major county fairs and other bodies of water. Hence their name, they would often do their routines in mermaid getup, complete with tails. The duo consisted of sisters Lily and Vivian Charles.
Lily and Vivian have performed synchronized swimming routines ever since they were in their teens. They would still hold onto their fading glory many, many years later.
The Charles sisters' lives would soon change. While cleaning the cat litter box, Lily got dirty cat sand in her right eye, causing her to lose her right eye. Both sisters claimed that this was the reason why the Darling Mermaid Darlings would swim no more, but it was recently revealed by Vivian that that wasn't the real reason. As of the seventh episode, the actual reason for the Darlings' retirement is unclear. Both Lily and Vivian became shut-ins and retreated behind a fence in Coeur d'Coeurs and lived with their niece, Charlotte Charles.
Return of the Darlings?
After the death of Charlotte, Lily and Vivian had a home invasion by the Shiny Shoes Killer, whom Lily defeated. After which, they had a briefly renewed interest in the outside world and announced a potential comeback tour to support Honey for the Homeless, Charlotte's charity organization, was originally in the works. However, they had an emotional relapse after they got a postcard from Charlotte that was delivered late from her cruise that said "Wish you were here." Therefore, their comeback tour was cancelled.
