Heartless Eastern Promises

Payback is a case featured in Criminal Case, appearing as the sixty-eighth case of the game and the twelfth case of Pacific Bay. It takes place in Inner City, a district based in Pacific Bay.


Amy was late to work due to her brother asking her to run some errands for him. Chief Marquez asked Amy to come to her office the next time she had to be late to work but on the other hand, Chief Marquez wanted Amy and the player to investigate a murder inside a Jewish delicatessen down Parks Avenue.

Once in the deli, an ex-convict named David Breitman was found dead due to wanton blood loss from a deep throat cut. According to Roxie, he was burned with hot tea, and then slashed in the throat with a pocket knife, resulting in blood loss. In a shocking twist of events, the killer turned out to be Chinese herbalist Yuan Wong.

Three decades prior to the events of the case, Yuan and David were burglars and the latter came to retrieve a cut from a robbery Yuan owed him, but instead Yuan used the money she received from various robberies to fund Yuan's Garden (her herbal business), feeling that any money she and David seized from past robberies were better spent for her business's maintenance. David did not like Yuan's change of life and asked her for money she owed him from 25 years ago, but Yuan did not like the idea of having to fund an con man-turned-beggar. To protect her family's honor, Yuan bumped into David at Myriam Miller's delicatessen one day and blinded him with hot tea. Once David was stunned, Yuan slashed David's throat, and knocked him out with a menorah (a Jewish candelabra), personally believing she had no other choice but to resort to murder.

Judge Dante decided thus to hold Yuan liable for killing an ex-convict for loot she kept for 25 years, and opted to label Yuan as a burglar at heart. Despite her attempts to build an earnest life, Yuan was handed a 25-year jail sentence for grand homicide and for robberies outstanding. Amy did not like how Judge Dante started the verdict but felt certain pasts were meant to stay resident in certain personas forever.

There were a couple of moments following Yuan's arrest ranging from Inner Chaos's vandalism of a synagogue to a railway fight in which Hannah's girlfriend Heather Valentine got involved. Amy kept wondering why Chief Marquez requested the team to refrain from telling Hannah anything about the return of the anarchist organization; reasons to this were revealed in the case after.
