The player arrived in the lush city of Royal Lake and were greeted by RLPD chief Georgia Bennings who introduced them to one of two partners - the jovial Allision Weary . Allision made fast friends with the player who also met weapons expert Michael Donovan and lab chief Patricia Dowes.

Allision suggested the player accompany her to a 4th of July barbecue being held by new arrivals to the Summer Creek district -Richard and Nora Keye . The player accepted and that night,accompanied Allision to the Keyes' home where they met the odd couple .
