—Case Teaser

Shiver Me Timbers is an case featured in Criminal Case as the twelfth case of the season. It is featured as the sixth and final case set in the Cascade Cove district of Aurelia.


Following the robbery of the map to locate the king’s lost treasure located in the mythical Azaria Triangle, Lydia with the player ran to search for the pirate crews by the coast. Just as they were about to board a rowboat to get aboard The Black Mercy, they heard a cannon blast and ran for cover. However someone wasn’t lucky as the duo soon came out of their hiding spot and discovered buccaneer Yvonne Malstaire blown to pieces. Dominic was able to confirm that Yvonne was blown up by a cannonball blasted from her own ship. They then suspected pirate captain Ricky Harris, bar owner David Carraway and scuba diver Megan Hearst following Yvonne’s death. Soon, the detectives discovered from the news that the Azaria Triangle had been found.

Lydia and the player then sailed out to the mysterious island where they found out that socialite Penelope Wilson had paid Yvonne to take her to the Triangle so she could see it for herself. Later they found the cannon hidden away on Yvonne’s ship as well cafe owner Adelaisa Grimaldi before Ricky told the detectives to scram off as he would find the treasure before they did. Soon despite Ricky's interventions into the investigation, the killer was unraveled as socialite Penelope Wilson.

The popular socialite soon confessed to killing Yvonne but stated that the pirate turned her back on her years ago. Penelope admitted that she was the child that Yvonne and Ricky had put up for adoption almost twenty years ago. Penelope confessed that she searched tirelessly to find out who her real parents were and upon meeting Yvonne and explaining that she was her daughter, Yvonne rejected her and told her that she wanted nothing but the king’s treasure. Feeling hurt and rejected, Penelope fired a cannonball at her estranged mother, killing her instantly. Penelope, who got angrier and angrier, confessed that she also had planned to kill Ricky as well for the ultimate payback. But since she was caught, she was handed a lifetime sentence by Judge Rodriguez for the murder.

After the trial, Lydia and the player tracked down the lost map and then traveled to the Triangle, where they found the chest filled to the brim with pirate treasure. However, when Ricky and his crew came to forcefully take the treasure from them, Lydia shot Ricky in the arm twice and told him to retreat. With success the team took the treasure back, where they gave it to Cascade Cove’s museum in honor of Yvonne’s memory. Meanwhile Silvano and the player helped Adelaisa with looking into a disappearance. They went to the shore where they found a train ticket to Utopian Peaks, where Cal also noted several disappearances in the region. As the team knew that their lab chief Thomas Wilford grew up there, they went to see Thomas, who explained that he worked for one of the tech companies in the technological home of Aurelia before coming to the ALEA. Seeing that the disappearances could be connected to a scheme, the team headed to Utopian Peaks.
