Something amiss?[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Professor Killings
Everyday Mittlemont is the husband of Anna Mittlemont and father of two boys. He used to work as chief jailer of the Berkly Prison in England. One day, during a secret trial where a Japanese man named Genshin Asogi apparently killed chief prosecutor Klimt van Zieks and four other nobles while being called the Professor, Mittlemont was put in charge of looking over him. He had gun but noticed he had a piece of paper with scarlet writing, he assumed it was his will. Then, when he was being hanged in the next room, he waited while the executioner and coroner confirmed his death. He was supposed to check on the corpse, nail the lid on Asogi's coffin and sign off on it. But the night Mittlemont went to check on the coffin, he found something odd: the lid had already been nailed on. He didn’t think too deeply about it, he just assumed the vice-chief had come and checked it already, so he signed off on it. But the truth is that Genshin was alive in the coffin, he was supposed to have sent back to Japan but was later shot dead for real by Seishirou Jigoku after a grave robber dug him from plot 139 first. A few nights later some detectives from Scotland Yard arrived at the prison. In the watch tower, Chief Officer Harry Barricade told Mittlemont that he was being fired from being Chief Jailer upon being suspected of helping the Professor escape. In despair, Mittlemont attempted suicide by jumping out the window of the tower, he survived but lost his memories of the incident.
Running Away[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Twisted Karma and His Last Bow
Everyday Mittlemont couldn't bring himself to tell his family about losing his job, so he decided to find a new one. That's when he took on a new identity as "Hugh Boone" and began to sell stories on Fresno Street, people called him "Gossip". He became acquainted with a firecracker seller nicknamed "Venus" and an information giver nicknamed "Sandwich". Tobias Gregson eventually found him and began to use him by giving him his police ID and asking that he make a scene where he was directed to go to by proclaiming that the detective is here to investigate. In exchange, Gregson paid Mittlemont a lot of money, which allowed him to continue his ruse, this was all for Gregson to better hide his movements.
Tobias Gregson sent Mittlemont out to be a decoy with the "Red-Headed League", a small-time scam of Maurice de Quilco and Marco di Gicho in the park on Lime Street. The two nobles captured Mittlemont and locked him in the inn room next to the one they were renting out. He tried to escape through the window but de Quilco caught him and put him back, this gave him a large mark around his neck. He was released the next morning and returned to Fresno, but soon he heard a loud bang nearby. He, "Venus" and "Sandwich" went to the secret room he rented out, the door knocked over the detective's board of case information and Gregson was discovered as a corpse. Klimt's younger brother, Barok, was there. Mittlemont fell to his hands and knees in fear, his right hand got into a pool of blood and print was made on the back of the board. He was forced to go to the secret trial as a witness and was unable to contact his wife without risking revealing his secret.
Cross-examining the Red-Headed League made Ryunosuke Naruhodo realize that "Hugh Boone" was Everyday Mittlemont. He got his memories of the Professor Killings back but then passed out and was taken to St. Entre-Deux Hospital. Afterwards, he says he'll be arrested for impersonating the detective, but he assures Naruhodo and Susato Mikotoba that he did not help the Professor escape ten years ago.
Resolution[edit | edit source]
- Main article: The Resolve of Ryunosuke Naruhodo
Eventually, Seishirou Jigoku was revealed to be Gregson's killer. He reveals that "Hugh Boone" was his intended scapegoat, van Zieks only took the fall because he was investigating Gregson.
Everyday Mittlemont was summoned back to the witness stand with Harry Barricade to discuss the jailbreak plan, Naruhodo believed that's why Genshin Asogi accepted the guilty verdict despite evidence just proven to be false. Barricade was revealed to be in league with the plan, but he says was just following orders from the prosecutor's office. Mittlemont spins around when Barricade suggests the killing gunshot was the final part of the plan, if they wanted Genshin dead the could've just went along with the execution, it makes no sense. Barricade gets angry and keeps grabbing Mittlemont but he won't be fazed even the slightest by him anymore. Soon, it was revealed that Mittlemont saw the will of Klimt van Zieks, the Professor's supposed final victim. Naruhodo suggested it contain a confession that he was actually the Professor himself, but was also being blackmailed by the current chief justice Mael Stronghart, that's why Genshin referred to it as a weapon.
In jail, Everyday Mittlemont still refers to his "Gossip" personal and is visited by his wife, Anna. He plans on making a fortune with Maurice de Quilco and Marco di Gicho when he's released, his wife couldn't be more proud.
