—Case Teaser

An Arrow in the Quiver is a case featured in Criminal Case as the twenty-ninth case of the season. It is featured as the fifth case set in the Misty Isle district of Aurelia.


The team were looking for the hidden crypt when they encountered hunter Axel Cobrabacker, who told them of a body in his shack. There, Silvano and the player collected the body of survivalist Lucille Banner. They soon interrogated Axel before going on to find clues to ask her brother, Brice Banner and adventurer Ina Nelson. Soon they were informed by Brice that someone had attacked him inside his hideout. There, the detectives found clues to interrogate property developer Brooke Carmichael and author Iris Redwind. Soon after, Lydia asked for assistance after Axel was found to be practicing his archery on a target of the victim. In the end, the killer was revealed as Brooke Carmichael.

Brooke confessed to the kill, insisting that Lucille looked where she shouldn’t have. The murderous property developer explained that Lucille had discovered the location of the Dead Man’s Crypt and planned to head there and take the treasure. Infuriated by this as Brooke wanted the treasure all to herself, Brooke attacked and tortured Lucille for the location before stealing Axel’s bow and arrow and piercing Lucille’s skull, neck and chest with arrows. Finally, Brooke dumped Lucille’s body in Axel’s shack to frame him and fled the scene. She was sentenced to life imprisonment for the sadistic torture and murder of Lucille Banner by Evelyn Rodriguez.

After the trial, Brice informed the player and Silvano that he had a map to the tomb in a tube in his hideout and directed them to its location. After searching the hideout, they found the tube empty with no sign of the map. Eventually, it was discovered that Ina had stolen the map for herself in order to find the treasure. The pair confronted and fined Ina for stealing the map before searching the camping site and finding the map torn apart. Upon piecing it back together, it revealed the location of the Dead Man's Crypt.

Meanwhile, Callum asked the player to accompany him in asking Axel to make a statue for his mother, Edna. The duo searched Axel's shack and found a half-finished statue that required work before it could be gifted to his mother. Eventually, the pair finished the statue and gave it to Edna, who was thankful for the gift and hugged her son gratefully. Finally, the team prepared to head into the jungle and to the Dead Man's Crypt...
