Events of Criminal Case

Dmitri became a suspect after the player and Carmen found he owed the victim money. He confirmed that he occasionally played cards with the victim, and was not worried over losing money to Mikhail due to him being a billionaire. When informed of Mikhail's murder on his estate he felt it was like being in an old Russian novel.

Dmitri was interrogated again regarding some invisible ink found on a playing card at his estate. He confirmed the team's suspicions that the victim was cheating, and that he lost the estate and everything in it to the victim by betting it. He was furious when he found out Mikhail won by cheating, and intended to challenge the victim to a duel at sunrise, though Mikhail never showed up.

In the end, it was revealed that Dmitri was responsible for Mikhail's murder. Dmitri was eager for Carmen and the player to reveal the evidence leading to him, but yet defied being the killer. As Carmen laid out the pieces of evidence that included his caviar and his green eyes, Dmitri told the truth about him killing Mikhail. Dmitri claimed that he killed the notary not for his estate, but rather, for honor – the honor of protecting Duchess Anastasia. Dmitri explained that he could not contain himself when he found out that Mikhail tried to blackmail the duchess into marrying the notary because he loved her.

While Dmitri claimed that Mikhail deserved that blow to the head and a lot more, Judge Adaku disagreed; the judge explained that while Mikhail was a paper-pusher that wielded the little power he had to ruin people’s lives, he did not deserve to be killed. As a result, Dmitri was sentenced to 25 years in prison.
