Red Handed is not the only quest involving Doctor Varias and his father. The senior Professor Varias was a researcher with the Red Hand (hence, Red Handed). Both of Doctor Varias’s other quests involve the Red Hand. Additionally, two item quests in the zone and the dungeon the Facility also relate to the material from Red Handed.
