Events of Criminal Case
After arresting Lucy Winters' killer, Gwen told the player that she had seen someone during the investigation who had caught her eye. At the crypt party, they found the skull badge that Gwen had seen her crush wearing. Per Ben, suspected vampire Roxanne Vega had come into contact with the badge. This prompted Gwen and the player to see if Roxanne was dating Gwen's crush. After identifying the mystery man as Pierce, Roxanne scoffed when she realized that the team thought that she was dating him. She then agreed to set Gwen up with Pierce.
Later, at the cemetery, Gwen and the player found a box with Gwen's name on it. They found an orchid inside the box; soon after, Pierce appeared and took Gwen on a date. At the end of the investigation, Gwen told the team that Pierce was everything she had dreamed of and revealed that they were meant to be.
After arresting a bigfoot's killer, Gwen and the player encountered vampire Fabien de la Mort during their search for missing teenager Mina Reynolds. During his interrogation, Fabien brought up Pierce, telling the team that he had mentioned Gwen during their gatherings at US vampire coven leader Dr Aculus' mansion. This led Gwen to realize that Pierce was a vampire, shocking her.
At the end of the investigation, Gwen revealed to the team that she had broken off her relationship with Pierce.
Pierce became a suspect after Gwen and the player found his vest at the werewolf hideout. After Gwen rejected Pierce's invitation to Dr Aculus' upcoming vampire ball, she told him about the murder. Shocked to learn about the identity of the victim, Pierce revealed that he used to hang out with Danny and werewolf Zander Stark, and commiserated Danny's death.
Pierce was spoken to again about him disabling the security camera at the crime scene. He revealed that he used to tease Danny about how being a werewolf was easier than being a vampire. Annoyed, the victim invited Pierce to see what happened when the werewolves unwillingly transformed at full moon. Since he did not want there to be evidence of him being at the prison, Pierce disabled the security camera. When he saw Danny transform, Pierce freaked out and ran away.
Pierce was found to be innocent after the team incarcerated Serena Kwame for Danny's murder.
Prior to the case, Pierce invited Gwen to Dr Aculus' deathday ball. Pierce then became a suspect again after he ran into Gwen and the player at the crime scene. After Gwen reminded Pierce that they were no longer together, he told the team that if he knew who had killed Dr Aculus, he would have ripped their head off. He then told the team that he had faith that they would solve the murder, and suggested that they looked for clues in the mansion garden.
Mid-investigation, vampire Bathsheba approached the team and savagely bit Gwen. After Gwen brandished a wooden stake at her attacker, Pierce pleaded with Gwen and promised that he would keep Bathsheba under control. Ben put Gwen on bed rest, telling the team that she had not been turned into a vampire. Luke assumed the role of the player's partner.
Pierce was spoken to again about his plan that Dr Aculus had not approved of. He admitted that he had told Dr Aculus about his plan to seduce Gwen at the ball. However, Aculus told him that theirs was an ill-fated romance, annoying him.
Pierce was found to be innocent again after the team incarcerated Eric Zwart for Dr Aculus' murder. Later, Pierce told the player that he wanted to check up on Gwen. After Gwen reminded him that they were over, he asked her for a dance back at the mansion.
Once Gwen (per Priya) found a suitable dress, she joined Pierce for a dance. However, when he saw her blood, he tried to bite her. Gwen brushed him off and explained that she would never feel safe around him. Reluctantly, Pierce admitted that she was right and told her to take care of herself, officially breaking their relationship off.
