Jury duty and testifying Edit
- Main article: The Memoirs of the Clouded Kokoro
Upon hearing Decargo Mieterman saying that William Petenshy's gas meter doesn't have any coin despite it being depleted of gas, president Valve Altamont's wife sent Mieterman to question Petenshy about whether or not he was stealing gas. Unfortunately, they couldn't find any evidence to confirm their suspicions.
Mrs. Altamont was called as a Juror No. 4 for the trial of Sōseki Natsume for Petenshy's attempted poisoning. She wanted the trial to end quickly because she had an executive meeting at 10 A.M. During the first closing argument, she revealed her identity as the gas company's president's wife and their investigation of Petenshy's gas thefts. With the potential of being a gas thief in mind, Juror No. 1 changed his verdict. Juror No. 5 is the only male juror who didn't follow suit since he wanted to leave as soon as possible, so Mrs. Altamont changed her vote instead. When Decargo Mieterman was going to testify about Petenshy potentially gas thefts, Altamont decided to take the stand as a supervisor.
She revealed that the new gas meter the company developed measures the size, shape and thickness equally so that it would only take three pence coins. Ryūnosuke Naruhodō figured out that Petenshy is indeed a gas thief, he was making coins out of tea using soap and poked a hole in the meter to let the melted liquid out.
The next day, Mrs. Altamont said William Petenshy's death is sympathetically inevitable. During the second closing, she said gas cost money to go around town and keep it safe. She wouldn't stop talking about gas due to all the criticism it was getting. She also revealed that the company has its rival companies that don't even have their own gas, they secretly steal it from the Altamont Gas Company by connecting pipes to houses with their own contracts and profit. So the company has people ask the customers if they encountered any dishonest companies during the fee collecting. This makes Juror No. 3 remember the other night when he was visited by an employee. He revealed a tactic where the companies blow into the pipe upsetting Mrs. Altamont, but the juror said everybody knew about that so it wasn't a secret. So she revealed if you blow hard into the end of a gas pipe, the low pressure will temporarily drop causing every connecting lamp to waver, therefore the company can tell whether or not the gas was stolen if a lamp in some other house flickers despite not having a contract with the same company. This helped Naruhodō realize that Petenshy was doing that to Sōseki Natsume and did it before to a previous lodger.
Mrs. Altamont is hardworking, unironically, wearing a bee-striped outfit, mild-mannered until a point and mostly caring about gas and her company. She is mostly using her hand fan to think or to giggle while she's using her umbrella when displeasured. When being a juror, she is mostly staying on topic until she's starting mentioning that about William Petenshy trying to steal the gas without actually paying for it, she also usually wants to be secretive about the company's secrets that are told by others or accidentally by her. When angry she usually threatens Petenshy with lawsuits or with a heafty explosion. As she states she has no evidence, she has a foundation which she places her claims as she tells Decago Meterman to testify and herself as a supervisor as she needs to talk about the ethnics of her company.
She also made an effort to design a "Pretency Special" with an unbreakable lock, but that didn't work either. She is also described as having the fire of a managing director's wife as when the technique that Petenshy used been revealed, she didn't believe it as she's been confident in the design of the gas meter. She also doesn't like when people talk negatively about the gas to the point that she tells Naruhodō to defend against any argument like that which she later prises for.
- "Altamont" is the alias of Sherlock Holmes from the Sherlock Holmes short story, His Last Bow.
- Her husband's name, "Valve", is named after the device of the same name, as referencing his occupation as gas president.
