Tears of Themis Episode 8 – Bloom of Sorrow Investigation and Trial walkthrough

It's tragedy over tragedy in the glamorous cruise ship glittering in the seas.

Tears of Themis' Main Story Episode 8 takes you onboard the invite-only cruise ship called the Pluto, where the world's most coveted goods make their way to the hands of the elite few. Your target is Lowe Lear, a doctor who Tyson Turner has ordered to produce an "immortality drug." But as a stream of manipulation forces the cruise ship to descend into chaos, it's ultimately the pawns who have to pay the price. In this Episode, Vyn Richter will accompany you for on-field investigations.
