Hidden Meaning is a case featured in Criminal Case as the fifth case of the season as well the fifth overall. It is featured as the fifth case set in the Energy Port district of Parinaita.


Henry and the player head to the Winds of Justice house, Gluber house, when they found a puzzle waiting for them. When they solved it. They went inside the building and found the crushed body of Amy Wells, who was last seen when the team investigated the murder on the boat. They send her body to the lab and they carry on with the investigation and files French artist, Corentin Charpentier, the victim's sister and KIASIL'S CEO, Helen Hall-Elber and Fitness trainer, Martyn Windgood. They went to Duncan and he confirmed that the victim died from a gargoyle falling and stabbing her in the heart and in her guts as well. After that, the team recapped until they were interrupted by the chief who said that he thought he found something in the maze outside. Strange black lighting.

They ran to the garden maze to find a dairy which lead to the Neohuman, Jeb Kindson, He explained that the black lighting was him teleporting in. They left him to carry on and they investigated some more as they talked with MI17's secret agent, Jennifer Winston, After that, the team returned to the building to recap when they heard a horrifying scream and the body of Helen managed to the point where she wasn't unrecognisable. She was dead.

After collecting Helen's body from the grand Hall, the same place where her sister was murdered. They found a note on her body that revealed that Helen killed her sister because of a "Problem with the Winds of Justice". The team thought that she did it under duress and that it had something to do with the Winds of Justice. They chose to investigate Helen's death now and talked to the 3 suspects left before arresting Corentin Charpentier for the murder.

They went to interrogate Corentin about the murder but he got mad and said that it wasn't him who killed Helen. He kept saying this and tried to get away with it until he snapped and revealed that he killed Helen and planned the murder of Amy because their father broke the rules of being the Winds of Justice. Henry was left amazed and asked him to repeat himself. Corentin repeated what he said and revealed that the Winds of Justice needs to die after they hand in their resignation letter but Amy's and Helen's father didn't. Therefore, and at this point Corentin pulled out the "Winds of Justice rules" and read, the Winds of Justice's family must be wrapped out and murdered in horrifying ways. He admitted that he enjoyed the screams of both Amy and Helen when they were murdered and then he laughed evilly. He laughed even more and said that if the team wanted to get to the Winds of Justice. They would need to look far and wide. The team arrested him for the murders. At the courtroom, Judge Williams was angry about this wild goose chase that the Winds of Justice was leading them on and sentenced Corentin to 75 years in prison. At the police station. Henry and the player were talking about the case and how weird it was. At that point Samuel Goldlane came in and reported that someone witness something scare at the house and that they should get over there right away!

After arresting Corentin, the chief told the team to go and talk to Corentin about what The Winds of Justice has in store. Henry and the player talks to Corentin about The Winds of Justice's plans but he refused to talk and just mentioned a "Light tower", the team then went to find clues as to what they could be planning and found out that Graham was released from prison for "Him feeling scared for his own life", in his own words. The team then investigated the Garden maze and found The Winds of Justice rule book and a safe. After examining them both. They talk to Louis about the "Return". He told them that there was the weird return of "The Winds of Justice". After also analysing the rule book. They were stuck until the Chief told them go to the Grand hall. They did so and found proof that lead to a witness to something weird, Queenie Shush. They questioned her about what she witness and then was interrogated by the killer and Winds of Justice from 1888, Samuel Calington. They questioned him about his plans with the Light tower and how he was still alive. He only answered the one about him still being alive. He told the team that after he "drowned". He time traveled to the year they were in...judging by his clothes. He had just done it but then he went out to the lake and the team followed, hiding from Samuel at all cost. After saying something to the water. ALL the Winds of Justice, from 1588 to 2010, came out of the water looking as good as they did when they "Died". He had woken them up. After a long speech. He told them to go to the light tower and "Finish the job".

After the team got back to the station. They told the chief everything and they asked what to do next but before he could reply. A loud and almighty boom came from the streets and people were heard screaming. They ran outside to see a Laser tearing through the streets and destroying everything in it's path and the laser was coming from the Light tower. The chief told them to get to the tower and to arrest The Winds of Justice before they destroy the town!
