Heart of Lion is the ninth case of Police World Tour and the second one of the South Africa Region, taking place in Harare, Zimbabwe.

Case Background

Carmen and the player did a morning routine exploring the jungles of Harare, Zimbabwe. Carmen, angry and exhausted, called Chief Zaira about why she sent them to the jungles. Zaira was disappointed for Carmen's lack of adventurous spirit, but she told the team's true matter. Chief Zaira got reports of disappearances on the outskirts of Harare, various witnesses saying they got kidnapped and brought to a hidden village in the deep jungle. After running a lot through the jungle, the team found a fence that led to the village... with an human head placed on one of the posts.

The victim was an African wizard: Akili Akif, which operated in the village as the people's seer and magician. After investigating his wizard settlement, it was discovered that a message was sent to the victim by another magician: Mireya Copenhague, the local witch doctor. Mireya told the team that Akili always had negative revelations about a possible incoming apocalypse in Africa, much to Mireya's disgust since his predictions were very negative unlike her positive predictions which she always had in order the keep the village calm. It was also found some dog tags in the village which belonged to Ma'aza Quansah, a female warlord who returned to her native village after a successful war campaign in Eritrea. Ma'aza, who was concentrated more in her war techniques rather than the team's interrogation, said that she did not knew much about the victim. During the end of the chapter, Yolanda, the secretary, approached the team, telling them to go to the Mana Pools Park, as some evidence confirmed that the victim was present there hours before his murder.

During chapter 2, the team investigated the Mana Pools Natural Park. After restoring a pamphlet they discovered that the park's owner, Michelle Bradley, wanted to renovate the whole park, which she meant by destroying all its nature and turn it into a big commercial center. Michelle said she hated Zimbabwe's environment, including the insects, and wanted to do a modern tourist attraction in order to turn the place into a "more lifelike place". She also claimed the victim always opposed her with protests and damaging her stuff as he did not wanted the park to be razed to the ground. The team almost ended up with an arrow in their faces after they restored an animal trap made by a village poacher named Mike'ele Sobapele. Mike'ele sarcastically apologized to team for almost killing them and also told them he disliked the victim since he always spent more time with the citizens (which Mike'ele called "the Enemies") rather than with the jungle village's people. After investigating the wizard house again, two revelations came into light. After restoring a broken doll that resembled a researcher named Leslie Humberts, it was known that Akili was helping her with her research, researching the cure for AIDS. She knew Zimbabwe was the country with the most cases of AIDS in the world and decided to make a cure, so Akili decided to help. The team also found a photo of the village, destroyed and set on fire with a message that readed: "Aliki, if you continue this will be your future". Aleksey determined that the photo was made using Photoshop and belonged to Mireya. Mireya said she wanted to scare Akili so he would stop telling everyone his catastrophic predictions. So, she sneaked to the city and using the computer knowledge she acquired from her "visions", she made a Photoshop image of the village in chaos so Akili would be afraid and would stop telling everyone that the apocalypse was going to come. During the end of the chapter, Yolanda came to the station telling the team to go the Mana Pools ASAP as the villagers had captured Michelle Bradley and they were going to burn her at the stake.

During chapter 3, the team managed to rescue Michelle before the villagers could turn her into a pile of ashes. Michelle, who was furious, claimed she was captured by a multitude of angry villagers after she brought a construction team to raze the park. It was also found Mike'ele sent a death threat to the victim calling him a "traitor" for helping the "white people". This was proven after the team found a photo of Akili inside some testing tubes. The team confronted Leslie about doing such experiments on Akili, but she defended herself, telling them she was researching a worse sickness than AIDS and Akili agreed to be part of the experiments to find the cure since he wanted to prevent the "apocalypse of his visions". The icing of the cake was that the team found a photo, belonging to Akili, that showed Ma'aza training children for the war. After confronting her, Ma'aza did not denied she was training kids for participating in the war back in Eritrea. She affirmed than she needed every type of cooperation into her goals and that she did not regret it. After finding the final clues, the killer was put into custody.

Mireya Copenhague was found guilty for the homicide. Mireya laughed at the team as she already knew the "upcoming apocalypse" that Akili mentioned was real but she didn't wanted anyone to know about it. When she was interrogated in court, Mireya said that the "apocalypse" was going to be the glory for the "tribal people," saying that they would stop being trapped in the deep jungle and that they would ascend to "victory". Chief Adaku thought Mireya was delusional, so he sentenced her to 25 years.

Mireya was interrogated post-indictment and she said that it was too late for the police to prevent the upcoming hit that the South African region was going to encounter, however Mireya did not reveal further details. The team also checked up on Leslie, who revealed to them that she was researching a very dangerous virus recently found in Africa called "Chinkunzika," which the known symptoms are fever, red eyes and a heavy cough. Leslie also claimed the the sickness is terminal and very deadly, but promised to the team she would find a cure. During the chapter's end, Chief Zaira happily congratulated the team and sent them to Madagascar as a royal meet-up was going to happen there soon.
