Just hear me out on this;
-Armando's surname is Torres. This suggests that he is some way related to Elizabeta Torres.
-Henrique's surname is Bardas. This suggests that he is related to Mallorie whose surname is also Bardas. Yes, Henrique is Dominican and Mallorie Puerto Rican, but that doesn't mean they are not related.
-Niko is introduced to Elizabeta through her cousin Mallorie.
-Therefore, if Henrique is related to Mallorie, Mallorie is related to Elizabeta, and Elizabeta is related to Armando, that would suggest that Armando is a distant relation,or at leat connected to Henrique.
