In the introduction of the the first case of Syleria, Chief Yumi Torakawa welcomed the player to the Syleria Crime Investigation Force and introduced herself. She then notified the player that Kazato Chihara and Haruko Hanami were assigned to be the player's partners in the investigations, and continued that Haruko is still in private training, implying that Haruko is inexperienced. The Chief then called Kazato to greet with the player, only to start flirting with her. Because of this, the Chief introduces him instead and asked Kazato to take the player to go sightseeing. He departs with the player to Twilight Slopes as it is his favorite spot to go. Suddenly, they found a body near an isolated tree and begun their first murder investigation together.
