—Case Teaser

Behold Thy Mother is a case featured in Criminal Case as the forty-third of the game. It is the first one that takes place at Wellness Fortress in New Cresthill.


Following the trail of Golliat Sept to Wellness Fortress to learn more about Raduga Shest, Evan and the player went to Cathedral of Naruer at the approximate time that Golliat used to go. In order not to interrupt the few people who were praying, they both sat on the benches near the door and waited. A few hours later, Golliat didn't arrive and there was only one nun lying on the transept that had been there since they both arrived, so they went to check if she was okay. As they approached, they found Sister Samantha Badaloni with a bleeding head and full of bruises. Priscilla revealed that Sister Badaloni was hit several times with a statue of Virgin Mary in the head and was left bleeding. They questioned priest Gary Haskins, Golliat himself and, goth fashion designer Elysium Van Porcelaine. Soon after, while Evan and the player returned to the station, they saw a couple of mimes representing a murder very similar to Samantha's.

Both interrogated the two mimes that were representing the murder, Shawn Wright and Mikey del Rio. Since Shawn was mute, Mikey told them that they had both taken out the idea of a videogame but that the two had moved away from the Church years ago. They as well suspected of male entertainer Hyun Park and discovered that Gary blamed Samantha for the death of his cats just because she was the last to see them since she was responsible for their care. Also, they discovered that Goliath and Samantha had constant discussions about the former's criminal past and the nun's mentality about criminals paying their sins in hell despite recanting them. Back in the cathedral, Evan and the player found Elysium tied to a wooden cross and several old women accusing her of being a witch and threatening to send her to hell. Evan and the player arrested all the women for attempted murder and released Elysium. She revealed that she had met Samantha at the jewelry store while looking for an engagement ring for Rachel. Due to her retrograde mentality, Samantha began to insult her but Elysium left, threatening to bewitch her which Samantha told several women who frequented the cathedral. In addition, Shawn sent Samantha the head of a lamb to scare her because she claimed that his silence was a punishment from God for bleaching his hair and, Hyun was stealing the alms because both Samantha and Gary considered him impure to step on their cathedral. Finally, they arrested Shawn for the crime.

With Mikey leaving him to his fate after being confronted with the evidence, Shawn confessed using text-to-speech software that he had been investigating Raduga Shest at the request of his girlfriend and that Samantha knew what they were planning, but refused to reveal Shawn all due to his "sinner" status. Knowing that Alleria would be disappointed in him for not getting information, Shawn tried to force Samantha to speak by threatening her with the statue of the virgin, but by only receiving insults and prejudices he ended up beating her to death. Judge Blanton sentenced him to fifty years in prison with mandatory psychological counseling.

Post-trial, Evan and the player went to ask Golliat if Raduga Shest had been responsible for releasing him; however, he mentioned that he had nothing to do with Frederic and could prove it. In the cathedral, Golliat had kept a cup that was handed to him by Warden Berkley at the request of the person who paid his bail. After finding a binary code engraved on it, they discovered that it was Alleria who paid their bail. When they confronted her for it, she revealed that she had seen Golliat change while visiting the prisoners during the festivities and didn't want him to end up being killed in prison. Confused at this, Evan asked her why she would save him if she was the one who caused the prison massacre with poisoned stewed cabbage to which Alleria replied that she was blamed by Raduga Shest.

Meanwhile, Ian Butler came to the station to ask for life guarantees after he received a threat in his office. Chief Galdwey and the player recovered a terrifying garden gnome that held a pumpkin carved as Ian's head and a sign that said: "Join us before we pay you a visit." Inside it, they found a GPS locator that had Preston's DNA on it. After Rogelio altered his code, he indicated some coordinates of an apartment complex about to be destroyed. There, they found and arrested Preston, who was calm at all times and even handed them a reservation card for a fancy restaurant. Restless about Preston's confidence despite being arrested, Selena thought that maybe she should go to the restaurant where the reservation card came from at the indicated time accompanied by the player because of the risk that it was a Raduga Shest trap.
