Events of Criminal Case

Behind the Mask

After discovering George Buchanan's killer, Maddie and the player needed to help with his and Charlie's machine for the World Exhibition coming up soon. After fixing it, Charlie told them to tell Dick they were ready for a test run. Though he was mad at Maddie for interfering, he requested they find a sample of material for which they could run DNA from, an anonymous sample to be precise. So Maddie and the player decided to return to the pool to see if they could find an anonymous sample for them to test with.

Blood Bath

After arresting Vinnie Costa's killer, the team got into a firefight with Vittorio Capecchi. Once it was finished, it was revealed that Evie got shot in the midst of it. Hoping to save her, the player and Diego went to Dick in hopes he could help. Although he ran out of anaesthetics, Diego said there was some in the saloon's rooms, in case a fight breaks out. While Dick started to treat Evie's wound, Diego and the player went to search for any anesthetics, and fortunately they found a bottle of morphine which they sent to Dick. He said he was able to extract the bullet without her feeling much thanks to the morphine, and that it did not hit any vital organs. Suddenly, Katherine Woolf showed up hoping to check on Evie after hearing she got hurt. But luckily Dick said she would be fine and they all went to check up on her.

A Study in Pink

After arresting Barbara Coldwell's killer, Rose and the player asked Dick to test their bulletproof vest. He thanked them for the opportunity and told them that being shot was one of the items on his bucket list. After Dick survived being shot by Rose, he asked them if they could do that every morning, before Rose concluded that the vest was successful.

Best Laid Plans

As usual, Dick performed the autopsy during the murder investigation - in this case, the victim was Mayor Lawson's right-hand man, Inspector Jaubert of the Justice Corps. Later, while Isaac and the player were in Lady Highmore's manor arresting Giulietta Capecchi for the murder, the Corps stormed the airship, having gotten a tip-off from Officer Smythe that the Squad was sympathetic with the resistance against Lawson's regime.

Having heard their arrival in the morgue, Dick hid under sheets like a dead body in order to avoid arrest. He also convinced Charlie to hide, telling him that he would only be able to save Maddie and their son if he avoided arrest. During the incident, they heard Viola getting knocked unconscious and that the Squad were going to be taken to the dungeon under the town square to await their execution the following day. He took supplies from the airship before escaping to the manor with Charlie to inform Isaac and the player of the developments.

In the manor, Dick asked Lady Highmore to supply some medicinal supplies so he could concoct a painkiller to administer to Viola and any other injured members of the Squad. Highmore and the player found a vial of acetaminophen, which Dick was able to make the painkiller out of. Reconvening, Dick suggested that Isaac sweet-talk prison guard George Blanton to admit them into the dungeon. After doing so, he and Dick then posed as Charlie and the player's prisoners to get into the dungeon, where they promptly broke the Squad free. He also administered the painkiller to Viola, who was still unconscious.

Analyses

As the Chief Medical Examiner (Coroner) of the Concordian Flying Squad, Dick's responsibilities center around carefully examining and analyzing each murdered corpse, and informing the team of such results after a certain amount of time or a speed-up process using Criminal Case Cash. His task-wait rates vary depending on the difficulty of the task, but they all cost 1 Criminal Case Cash per 30 minutes.
