Events of Criminal Case

Suleiman became a suspect after Nebet and the player tracked him down to the palace's library. He informed the team that the victim was his oldest friend and his greatest confidant. When asked who could have wanted him dead, he revealed that he had shared many enemies with Ibrahim due to their power.

Suleiman was spoken to again about the victim's attempt to betray him. He informed the team that he knew that Ibrahim was a traitor as he wanted to become the sultan in his stead. He admitted to planning to punish the victim for his betrayal, but he had not killed him.

Suleiman was found to be innocent after the team incarcerated Serap for Ibrahim's murder. The team presented Serap to him, who banished her from the Ottoman Empire for two years, but allowed his concubine Roxelana to bid her farewell. Later, Penelope asked the team to help clear musketeer Alexandre Devereaux's name when Suleiman accused him of stealing his Halime stone. After they found the stone, Jack and the player returned the jewel to him. They explained that the jewel had been found at the thermal baths and that it had been simply misplaced. He then ordered Devereaux's release.


  • In Pride Comes Before the Fall's sticker album, it is noted in the suspect list sticker that Suleiman is 6'0" when he appeared as 6'3" in his profile. This is most likely a developer oversight.
  • Outside the Criminal Case universe, Suleiman the Magnificent was the tenth and longest-reigning Sultan of the Ottoman Empire from 1520 until his death in 1566.
