Events of Criminal Case

Back to the Future

When the team returned to 2029, they were shocked to discover that they had returned to an alternate time stream in which Shabaka ruled, alongside Ramses XLIII.

After arresting Chief Scott's killer, Jack and the player dug into the history of the Ptolemys. They discovered (per Orlando) that the Ptolemys were direct descendants of Cleopatra and Mark Antony.

Rebel Without a Pulse

After arresting Storm Huxley's killer, the team attended the 5th of July celebrations at Anubis Square. There, spokesman Eugene Donkin announced the return of Princess Nefertiti, the daughter of the Pharaoh and Queen Shabaka. The team suspected Nefertiti to be Nebet in disguise, but they later learned that her true identity was Nefertiti.

Fool's Gold

Shabaka became a suspect after Amy and the player found her draft speech to announce the murder of her husband to the public. She told the team that her husband's murder was terrible, but it did not weaken the regime. When Amy suggested that the murder was a political attack, Shabaka reminded the team to remember their place.

Mid-investigation, Shabaka ordered a palace guard to instruct the team to investigate the secret hangar where their time machine was being kept as her husband would often frequent the hangar. Later, she gave a speech at Anubis Square where she promised her people that the resistance and the Pharaoh's killer would be executed at sundown.

Shabaka was spoken to again about her vandalizing her wedding portrait. She revealed that her husband would sleep with the slaves and act like it was okay, prompting her to vandalize the portrait. She then said that she was the real mastermind behind the Pharaoh, but despite how she felt about him, she would ensure that his death was avenged.

Shabaka was found to be innocent after the team incarcerated Nefertiti for Ramses' murder. Shocked by the fact that her daughter was capable of such violence, Shabaka sentenced Nefertiti to manual labor on the island of Wolaniu. She then attempted to sentence the team and the resistance to be executed at sunset, but before she could do so, an explosion from the prison cells forced her and the palace guards to chase after the escaping resistance members.
