Events of Criminal Case

Blood Bath

After arresting Vinnie Costa's killer, the team got into a firefight with Vittorio Capecchi. Once the first one was done, Evie approached them with a bullet in her chest. While Maddie took her inside, Diego and the player went to Dick to see if he could help her. After grabbing an anaesthetic for her, Dick reported that the bullet was removed and did not hit any vital organs. Katherine Woolf even showed up to check on Evie, and once Dick said she would be fine they all went to check on her. She had just woken up, and was feeling odd due to the high sensation of morphine she was given to subdue her pain. She was especially glad to see Katherine there, saying she had a feeling of butterflies in her stomach when she was around, though Katherine claimed it was just the morphine.

Bridge over Troubled Water

After arresting Thomas Boyd's killer, one of Rose's guns was stolen. Viola identified Evie as the thief. Evie confessed to the theft and admitted that she wanted to learn how to shoot to confront her fears. She said that she didn't want to hide behind the team any longer and wanted to show courage. Rose told Evie that she already had strengths, consoling her and offering to make her a drink.

Stick to Your Guns

After arresting Edna Owens' killer, Evie came to the player to talk about Diego, who decided to obtain more information about the Italian gang. But according to her, it had been a few hours since Diego last contacted her, and she begun to worry something happened to him. They decided to investigate the police station, where Diego was last known. They found a threatening note from the Italian gang, saying they got Diego and he would not survive the night. After taking a sample from the note, they sent it to Viola, and from it they determined he was in the dissused baths the player investigated earlier. But then Rose came in saying she had a plan to save Diego, but despite Diego being her friend, Evie was not allowed to come. But Rose assured her they would bring Diego back alive.

Apprehend Me If You're Able

After arresting Jade Carnegie's killer, Evie asked the player to help her clear Diego's name. They then found a set of ink bottles in his apartment, which, per Viola, were commonly used to forge Chinese inkwash paintings. However, Diego promised them that he was not using the inks for forgery and urged them to reinvestigate his apartment. There, they found a portrait of Maddie and Charles. Diego then explained that he painted it for the two to hang in their home. Evie and the player then realized that Diego had turned over a new leaf.

The Swan Song

After arresting Marta Ulanova's killer, Evie asked Maddie and the player for their assistance. She revealed to them that someone had stolen the Rochesters' bill, which, if passed, would abolish free press. When Maddie asked her if any of the Rochesters had recently been to the airship, she remembered that Viola had told her that she had been to dinner with Horatio Rochester, but they had gone to the opera cafe. This prompted Maddie and the player to head to the cafe.

A Study in Pink

Evie became a suspect in the murder of Barbara Coldwell after she confessed to Isaac and the player that the victim had been to her library the morning before the murder. She apologized for her scatterbrained character and said that she felt sick with nerves all morning. She then allowed them to investigate her library in order to aid their investigation.

Evie was spoken to again about a printing plate that she had made for Pistols & Petticoats that had her positioned as the new editor-in-chief. She explained that the victim thought of the magazine as her pet project, but she did not take it seriously enough to make it a real contribution to the literary world. Evie, on the other hand, believed that she had the gumption to take Pistols & Petticoats in a new direction. She then told them that she had showed her printing plate to the victim when they met, but Barbara had broken it in a fit of anger.

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

Resistance Is Fatal

Evie showed Isaac and the player the barn the resistance against the oppressive rule of Mayor Lawson was using as their headquarters, per the request of Katherine, who was a member of the resistance. There, she, Isaac, and the player found the body of Dylan Mitvok, crushed by the printing press inside. Not used to seeing dead bodies personally, Isaac told her to leave the scene.

Later, resistance member Mildred Takakura, niece of the late Judge Takakura (who was also a resistance member), held Evie at gunpoint, saying that she did not trust the team to be against Lawson because they had set his killer free. Isaac, Evie, and the player convinced her that Takakura would have wanted her to be free from the death sentence that was awaiting her. After she backed down, Mildred set Evie free.

Evie later informed Isaac and the player that the resistance headquarters were compromised, meaning that their financial backer—who had been sending money via a scarecrow in the farm—would not be able to contact them. Isaac and the player then helped the resistance out.

One Dead More

After arresting Albertina Thenard's killer, Evie told the team that Katherine had gone missing. She said that they were supposed to meet at the airship, but Katherine never came. She feared that she was caught by the Justice Corps for being a member of the resistance. She directed the team to the riverbank, where Katherine was last distributing flyers.

Later, her suspicions were confirmed when Maddie and the player found out that Katherine was arrested by Inspector Jaubert, who had caught her distributing her flyers. Even worse, they also found out that there were arrangements of a mass execution of Lawson's political prisoners being planned.

Best Laid Plans

On the day of Katherine's execution, Jaubert was murdered, postponing the mass execution. Later, while Isaac and the player were arresting Giulietta Capecchi for the murder, the Corps stormed the Squad's airship, having gotten a tip-off from Officer Smythe that they were sympathizing with the resistance. While Charlie and Dick escaped, Evie and her other colleagues were arrested and thrown into the dungeon under the town square to await their execution along with the other political prisoners the following day. Luckily for Evie, the Squad were thrown in the same cell as Katherine.

Later, the four cops not arrested by the Corps were able to break in the dungeon and free Evie, Katherine, the Squad, and the other political prisoners.


As the Archivist of the Concordian Flying Squad, Evie has the responsibility of analyzing physical objects and/or clues that require research from the city archives, and to inform the team of such results after a certain amount of time or a speed-up process using Criminal Case Cash. Her task-wait rates vary depending on the difficulty of the task, but they all cost 1 Criminal Case Cash per 30 minutes.

The player may choose Evie to join the investigation of each crime scene (in any Mysteries of the Past case) and provide hint bonuses. She is available as a 2-hint partner. (This feature is only available in the mobile variant of Criminal Case.)


  • Evie is one of the characters to appear as a quasi-suspect five times.
  • Evie is one of the main characters who are flagged as a suspect for plausible reasons.
  • Evie draws her back to hug Diego during the events of Stick to Your Guns, making her one of the few characters to do such at one point in a cutscene.
  • In Blood Bath, when Charles is supposed to be sent the charred cans for analysis, it is shown as being sent to Evie instead. This is most likely a developer oversight.
  • Despite being billed as five feet in her first four quasi-suspect appearances, Evie appears to be 4'10" in her suspect appearance. This is likely a developer's oversight.
