Events of Criminal Case
Meeting High Commissioner Delacroix
Mid-investigation, Carrie, Hugo and the player met High Commissioner Delacroix when he was mid-argument with Nadia after she accused High Commissioner Delacroix of questioning her tastes. When Hugo asked what they were arguing about, High Commissioner Delacroix explained that Nadia did not believe in tampering with the classic recipe of Paris-Brests, revealing that he had bought a box of cinnamon Paris-Brests from Café Le Froufrou, which Nadia disagreed with. Hugo recalled that the killer ate cinnamon Paris-Brests; after High Commissioner Delacroix praised the team for their impressive sleuthing skills and telling the player that he was looking forward to getting to know them, Hugo and the player went to investigate Le Froufrou.
After arresting Béatrice Sanchez's killer, High Commissioner Delacroix tasked Enzo and the player with organizing a party to welcome both Carrie and the player to the Parisian Police Squad. He told them that fashion designer Charles Pilsnerfeld had allowed him to use the Chior rooftop for their party. He then asked Enzo and the player to make cocktails for the party.
At the end of the investigation, High Commissioner Delacroix and the rest of the team surprised Carrie and the player with the party, officially welcoming them to the team.
