Events of Criminal Case

Meeting Maddie

In The Darkest Hour, Armand Dupont asked the player to find his great-grandfather Charles Dupont's notebook, where Charles had narrated his adventure with an agent who happened to have much the same characteristics as the player. Dupont, on his deathbed, then entrusted the notebook to the player.

In the notebook, the story began with Charles, accompanied by Maddie, welcoming the aforementioned agent to the city of Concordia in the late 19th century.


After the arrest of Madam Xiang, her mother Eileen arranged a marriage between her and some Dr. Arnold Wharton. Since Wharton was too old for her to stand, Maddie asked Charlie to be his fake betrothed and fool Eileen out of her plans, eventually succeeding. After that, Charlie let her keep his grandmother's wedding ring, hence becoming closer with Maddie.

Little Murder on the Prairie

After Maddie helped Charlie find his milking machine, they gave it to Adaline Galls. As they were leaving the Galls' farm, Maddie expressed her admiration towards Charlie, while Charlie complimented her back. The two then agreed to go on a romantic date.

Death Comes to Lunch

After the arrest of Francine, the player and Charles tried to speak to Maddie, who was still hungover from her bender after prohibition had been lifted. In pain, she asked them to get her some Ginger Storm, a fizzy refreshment that would cure her hangover. After curing her hangover, Charles then asked Maddie if he could move in with her, to which she agreed. Maddie then helped the player and Charles look for his gift to her. The player was able to fix Charles' key rack, symbolizing the two becoming roommates.

Talk of the Town

After the arrest of Hector Harvey, Eileen demanded that Charles propose to Maddie to spare her from scandal. However, Maddie rejected Charles's proposal and berated him for allowing her mother to get into his head. Maddie, Charles, and the player then went to confront Eileen for her interfering behavior. Maddie then told her mother that Charles was to move from the spare bedroom to hers, before the two kissed, causing Eileen to leave in a huff. Maddie and Charles then invited the player to join them at the hotel pool.

Turn for the Worse

During the murder investigation of Lynn Hart, Charles accidentally made Maddie disappear. She was soon released thanks to the help of Evie and berated Charles for his reckless actions. After arresting Lynn Hart's killer, Charles learned some magic tricks in order to ask for her forgiveness. His attempts worked and Maddie forgave him.

Tipping the Scales

After the arrest of Samson Drake, Charles and the player discovered (per Viola) that Maddie was pregnant. When the two talked to her about it, she revealed that she had known about it for a while. She explained that Dick had told her that she wouldn't be able to drink for a while, so she went to the Rochester warehouse to break her last bottle. The two then assured each other that they would be excellent parents and hoped that their baby got the best out of both of them.

A Study in Pink

After all the events, Maddie said that she and Charlie were engaged and that they were to be married soon.


The player may choose Maddie to join the investigation of each crime scene (in any Mysteries of the Past case she teams up with the player) and provide hint bonuses. She is available as a 1-hint partner.
