—Case Teaser

Anchors In A Storm is the fifth case of the Criminal Case collaboration The Lone Enemy. It takes place in the region of Nefarion in the country of Halcyon.


To try to avoid the upcoming storm and still on the lookout for a cure to the epidemic, Diana Hudgen sent the player and Kaitlyn Ahrens to the cargo ship of a company called Diomede Kane, which had a machine that could be used to stop the artificial storm through electromagnetic radiation. However, what the player and Kaitlyn found first was not the machine but the dead body of a woman called Isabelle Guanesse. They soon found out that Diomede Kane also had a machine that could help them stop the epidemic, but they would have to pay large amounts of money to use either of the machines they wanted.

During the investigation, five suspects were interrogated. John Siffore (an engineer that was the team's contact in the ship), Andrea Orian (the actress that had been involved in previous cases), Rose Tennessee (who created a machine to find antidotes), Mr and Mrs Santiago (a rich couple willing to buy the same machine the team wanted) and Jane Parsons (who was the victim's supervisor).

The player and Kaitlyn found a scientific report about the artificial virus that had caused the epidemic in Nefarion, so they asked Rose Tennessee for help with her machine. She said that the machine needed an actual sample to work but she might eventually come up with an antidote herself if they gave her time even though viruses can't technically be killed. Besides, the team needed to buy the machine to stop the storm before Mr and Mrs Santiago bought it; they wanted to stop the storm but their location wouldn't prevent the hurricane from entering the continent. This meant that the Resistance needed to but the machine as soon as possible or they'd risk having the whole country at the mercy of The Enemy's storm.

They shortly found out that the first storm front from the big hurricane would hit the sea base the next afternoon and the ship needed to leave by midnight. This meant that if the case wasn't solved by then, the crime scene would disappear and the ship would leave into the sea again.

The team finally went to arrest Jane Parsons for the murder of Isabelle Guanesse after all the evidence pointed at her. She denied it at first but then escaped from the room and went to the ship's deck. She said that she wanted to destroy Diomede Kane because the company ruined their employee's lives and only cared about money instead of helping people. Since she thought her life was already ruined and wouldn't get any better in jail, she jumped into the sea only to drown and later be taken away elsewhere by the hurricane.

Before midnight, the player and Kaitlyn returned to the ship and got the antidote from Rose Tennessee, which they later had to spread to cure the people from Nefarion from the disease caused by the artificial virus. They also went to buy the machine but unfortunately the Santiagos seemed to have won this time since John Siffore told them the machine had already been sold. They couldn't find the Santiagos anywhere but they found a note from them to John Siffore, which was written in some code. They asked Gordon Briscoe to decipher it before midnight so that they could get the machine at any cost. They finally bought it and activated it to prevent the first storm front from reaching Nefarion.

The team said that they would have to take care of Nefarion Carnival, an event taking place the following week at Nefarion Park, since the Enemy could get the chance to strike at such a massive event.
