Events of Criminal Case
José became a suspect after Gwen and the player were brought to him by Tiffany. He explained that he lived on the Island of the Dolls with Tiffany, his granddaughter. He revealed that the dolls kept them company and that he had built a shrine to honor them. José denied knowing about the murder and then invited the team to join them for tea.
José was spoken to again about his offerings of forgiveness in the doll shrine. He explained that Marigold had made the dolls angry with all of her selfies and was worried that bad things were going to happen because of it. He then urged the team to leave the island.
José was found to be innocent after the team incarcerated Tiffany for Marigold's murder. Later, Ben and the player demanded answers from José about Tiffany being an enchanted doll. He revealed that, in his loneliness, he began to talk to the Tiffany doll. Then one day, Tiffany came to life. He revealed that he knew that Tiffany was dangerous, but he loved her anyway.
