One day, Connette Rozaic went to Lowgate Cemetery and dug up the body of the dangerous serial killer, the Professor. The man was forced to hide his identity because he was Japanese, yet Rozaic took a mold of his face for the "Hall of Terror" display of her future wax museum. After having trouble with the jaw, she realized that the man wasn't actually executed. The gravekeeper notified the chief justice, Hart Vortex, about her who made a deal with her to allow a wax professor if she never took off the metal mask, which can only be opened with a key, nor reveal any of this to anyone. She also read a Daily Circus newspaper article about a grave robber named Enoch Drebber encountering the Professor rising from his grave. So she went to Drebber at the London University lab, heard about what happened from him, and paid him five pounds to take a wax mold of him for the display as well as the camera he had with him.

On the day of the London World's fair, Connette Rozaic officially opened her wax museum. The special Professor exhibit helped the Rozaics gain star status. But suddenly, her Professor wax figure was stolen. There was a ransom in the exhibit telling her to have two hundred pounds ready in two days. She called the police but the man who came to investigate fell asleep next to a wax figure of officer John Clay, he received the superintendent general award three times last year so Rozaic made a sculpture of him. A middle-aged man tried to steal Clay's arm but Rozaic fought back for it and knocked him unconscious, people were always trying to steal her figures of wax. Sherlock Holmes also came to investigate the Professor kidnapping but he also got a job to pretend to be a wax sculpture to earn more money.
Ryūnosuke Naruhodō and Iris Watson came to the wax museum during their investigating regarding the death of Elyder Meningen. They mistook Holmes for an actual sculpture until Iris kicked him. Connette Rozaic then arrives who calls Holmes restless and threatens to turn him into an actual wax figure. The detective wants money but Rozaic refuses to pay him until he performs his famous deduction. He does so, but he mistook Clay for actually being here and the patrolman as a wax figure instead, he came to the wrong conclusion that she sold the Professor sculpture and it's currently at the Scotland Yard. Rozaic is furious that Holmes called her a criminal, Naruhodō manages to correct Holmes and Rozaic is impressed. She and Holmes tell Naruhodō and Iris about the Professor killings and she leaves. The next day, Rozaic got the figure back. But unknown to her, the figure was still missing his head.
At the Witness Stand Edit

He is very surprised that she knows of the Professor's identity, she is currently working on a Sherlock Holmes mold, she says she also has a figure of Meningen in the "villains corner". Although Vortex's deal made her forbid telling the court about how she found out the Professor was buried alive, using the knowledge of Rigor Mortis, Naruhodō finds out something from Rozaic's testimony: the coroner who ruled the Professor dead, Courtney Sithe, botched the autopsy. When Enoch Drebber yells at her to be quiet about what happened with them ten years ago, Barok van Zieks tells him that is no way to treat a lady.
Eventually, it was revealed that Sithe kill Meningen as revenge for him finding out about her secret and blackmailing her about it. Drebber attempted to get his revenge on Meningen for making him drop out of school, the Professor figure was used to get revenge on Scotland yard. After everyone left, Barok van Zieks borrowed the key to the mask from Connette Rozaic to show Naruhodō and Susato Mikotoba the face of the "Professor". This made his son, Kazuma Asōgi, regain his memories and slice the wax figure. Though later it turns out that Asōgi's father was actually framed for the crimes.
