Events of Criminal Case

Yan was Walter Fairbanks' mechanic.

Yan was called into the investigation after Walter's plane crash landed on the scene of the crime (wedding party). Jones and the player felt that Yan was the one who sabotaged the plane, but Yan double-checked the plane to make sure it was in working condition—which made Yan a strong suspect but he was unaware about anyone flying out of his radar, but Yan would never transgress as it would damage his career as an aviation mechanic.

Yan was interrogated for the second time when the team found a flight recorder which fell from Walter's plane, extracted the data, and found the voice to be Yan's. The team wanted to know as to why Walter and Yan were fighting via radio broadcast. Walter even went so far as to accuse Yan of sabotaging the plane, and told the team that all Walter wanted to do was to use planes to flirt with women as if Walter has lost interest in the aviation industry.

In an act of cooperation, Yan told the team about Molly Mocard's suicide attempt at the West Bridge, in which the team intercepted Molly before she succeeded. Yan was found innocent upon Esteban Vallez indicted for Walter's murder in spite of Yan's excessive differences with Walter.


  • Yan seems to have been inspired by French actor Jean Gabin.
