Events of Criminal Case

Graveyard Shift

Callum became a suspect after Isaac and the player found his hip flask at the scene of the crime. He explained that he had gotten drunk with his friend, Edgar Woe, resulting in Isaac and the player realizing that Edgar was the victim. Callum explained that the two had gone to The Stake and Garlic to drink, but didn't know how they had ended up in the cemetery; he had passed out and fled when he heard a wolf howl. This prompted Isaac and the player to investigate The Stake and Garlic.

Callum was spoken to again about a sketch he drew of Annabel Leigh, the victim's muse. He admitted to having feelings for Annabel and said that Edgar was only dating her to rub his superiority in his face. He said that the victim bragged about everything; tired of his attitude, he got his comeuppance by sending Edgar to break into Count Blutsauger's castle, hoping the Count would set his dogs on him.

Callum was found to be innocent after the team incarcerated Annabel Leigh for Edgar's murder.

A Study in Pink

Callum became a suspect again after Isaac and the player found his flask at the Pistols & Petticoats office. When informed of the murder, he asked who could have killed her and revealed that he had gone to school with the victim's daughter, Verushka Coldwell. He then told them that after what happened in Grim Chapel, he decided to head to Ivory Hill where the victim had hired him to be an illustrator for her magazine.

Callum was spoken to again about a bust of the victim that he had vandalized. He revealed that his job was nothing like what he thought it would be, drawing beefy bimbos and moonstruck maidens instead of detectives, monsters and robots. He then said that he defaced the bust in order to get revenge on her, claiming that it was some of his best work. He later made a scene at the airship when he begged Isaac and the player to lock him up, believing that he was cursed.

Callum was found to be innocent again after the team incarcerated Verushka Coldwell for Barbara's murder.
