—-Case Teaser

Cranial Scalpel is the second case of the Criminal Case collaboration The Lone Enemy. It takes place in the city of Nefarion in the country of Halcyon.


After the whole team arrived at the Nefarion Medical Hospital, they witness the death of Adrian Lorenzo, who died in the middle of the road due to brain trauma. They also believe that this wasn't an accident, since they found a few evidence that suggests that it was a murder.

Later on, Jessica, the coroner of GR, discovered that his cause of death came from a lethal drug called pentobarbital. She believes that the enemy created it since its chemical formula and its molar mass was very different from the original atom.

A few moments later, Brant received an incoming nuclear alert coming from the Scotch River. He warned the team that the storm the enemy planned could be striking the city in any moment now. Diana ordered Thom and the player to finish the case as soon as possible to stop the impending strike.

During the investigation, four suspects were flagged: the rich young man Daniel Martin; the normal citizen Zoe Benson; the sister of Francis, Quinn Entela; and the famous actress Andrea Orian, who all have connections with the victim.

With all the evidence they collected, they arrested Quinn Entela for Adrian's death. Confessing to the murder, Quinn said that the enemy told her to murder Adrian. She also admitted that the enemy will start the storm in the next 4 days. After these events, she was brought to the courthouse and Judge Alice Bautista sentenced her to 9 years in jail.

Following Quinn's arrest, the team are now starting to stop the incoming strike from the Scotch River. With no way to stop it, Diana decided to find someone who could help them stop the storm.

At the end of the case, Diana said that she found someone that could help them stop this disaster. However, Jessica interrupted them saying that a dangerous disease is now spreading around the city.
