Events of Criminal Case

Burning Bridges

Beatrice came to the airship to talk to Viola about her parentage. Viola said she confirmed her suspicions that her father was not her biological father, but Beatrice insisted that her father was her "real" father. She then said that there would be no further talk about it.


After arresting Abner Milton's killer, Viola and the player tried to ask her about the identity of Viola's real father after they found a cup bearing his DNA. However, she insisted that she stop digging around for clues, saying that if she brought up the topic with the father who raised her, it would break his heart. She then said she would speak no more of it.

The Heart of the Matter

After arresting Deputy Mayor Sandra Hwang's killer, Maddie and the player helped Viola confirm that Horatio Rochester was her father. Viola and the player then talked to her mother Beatrice, who said that he had impregnated her when she was a maid in the Rochester household. After finding a document backing up the claims, the two confronted Horatio, who welcomed Viola with open arms upon finding out that she was a part of the Squad.
