EDNOTE: An interesting thought indeed. NB that  "Baron Klim Avidov" (Vladimir Nabokov) is the presenter of the soothsaying Scrabble game.

Here is a little suggestion: in English *temnosiniy* (dark blue) is consonant with Darkbloom, and Vivian Darkbloom is a famous anagram of *Vladimir Nabokov*. VN seems to have hinted at his authorship of the entire clan. Or is it too far-fetched?
(I apologise if this has already been noted.)
