Rome, Open City is the sixth case of World Edition, as well as the sixth case to take place in Europe.


After the events in Greece, Rome was the best bet for Idole de Lavanda to be. There, Hakam and the player found the corpse of a poet known for the secular subjects in them named Maddalena Moretti. She was found outside the Sistine Chapel with a wound in her heart. Autopsy reported that the killer used a sharp projectile to murder Maddalena. Later, the spear was found with Josefine Katz's fingerprints on it. Not only that, but Cedric Aegros was abducted. Eventually, a tourist named Harriet Rose was incriminated to be Maddalena's killer.

Harriet initially denied the murder charges Hakam pressed. She denied each and every piece of evidence Hakam and the player provided until Meghan ran into the interrogation room and gladly revealed that the mayor of Rome allowed Meghan access to security cameras across Rome. Because of this, she was able to view something that was a surefire sign that Harriet was a criminal: a picture of holding an unconscious Cedric.

The Canadian tourist knew that she had been backed in a corner where she could not escape. As the player found out during the events of Lucas Turnau's murder, they learned that she had been paid to steal a page at the Pretty Lecker restaurant. She revealed that the one who owned the Idole de Lavanda account had mixed up Isabell's and Harriet's roles in Germany; Harriet was to assassinate Lucas while Isabell was to steal the page. Hakam was curious as to why Harriet was affiliated with Idole de Lavanda in the first place.

Harriet revealed that when she was young in Canada, she had spent so much time working for her future that she would never spend time with her parents. One day, the two of them died in a car crash in Vancouver. She then started traveling in order to escape her past. She soon heard by a man in Greece that time is money and that money is power. Since she had heard that saying in Europe, she would often rob places in her travels in the aforementioned continent. One day, she was caught after robbing an Italian bank. She revealed that the owner said that she would either be indebted to them and have her give the shop's money to the owner or he would kill her and steal all her money. She chose that being in Idole de Lavanda's debt would be a better fate.

Despite how much money Idole de Lavanda had, or power as she saw it, her life just seemed to be fading before her eyes. With Idole de Lavanda's help, she was able to identify the man who told her the maxim as Cedric Aegros. She was going to strike in Greece, but the Supreme Police were busy investigating Aleksander's murder. Spear in hand, she arrived in Italy before the TSP could and found Cedric at the Sistine Chapel. She lured Maddalena away and killed her. When she returned, Cedric was missing. Luckily, since she had tea with Josefine in Germany a few weeks ago, she planted her fingerprints there. Soon, she found Cedric in Venice, only to knock him out with her sleeping pills. She then dragged him to her lair and said she would reveal no more. Hakam then shipped her off to trial, where Judge Anthony Dean Rosenbloom sentenced Harriet to life in jail with no chance of parole.

In the aftermath of Harriet's trial, the Supreme Police knew they had to identify Cedric's location. The matters were complicated further after Yumi revealed that a fight had ensued between Stefano Aldebrandi and Valentina NotaroChief Oakley sent Yumi to deal with the fight, a conflict that was easily fixed thanks to a security camera at the hotel.

Hakam and the player went to apologize to Josefine, who actually enjoyed being placed in custody. She suggested them to visit the murder scene again. Outside the Sistine Chapel, they found a duffle bag belonging to Harriet. In there, they found a storybook with skin cells that Luna Terranova (who was excited to be back in her home country), attributed to be those of Cedric. Harriet refused to reveal anything about Cedric's location except for what she had already revealed: Cedric was in her lair.

After all that had transpired, Bodhi organized a meeting. He said that he had taken an interest in the storybook that Hakam and the player had found in Harriet's duffle bag. Bodhi informed the rest of the Supreme Police that Cedric had scribbled a poem at the end of the book where a man was disemboweled in a mysterious land named Shipiana. Bodhi was able to determine that Shipiana was an anagram for Hispania, a former name for Spain. This could only mean one thing: Harriet's lair was in Spain.
