The prosecution may call its first witness of the day.
I call Bucho to the stand.
Please state your name and occupation for the court record.
My name is Bucho. I am head of security for Gambino family.
I see. So you were in charge of security on the night in question?
Affirmative. That night, master Gino ask me to open mansion doors for celebration in honor of his late father, Johnny K. Gambino.
You were also in charge of the investigation following the mansion's burning?
What did you find?
I have security camera footage of defendant.
~The prosecution submits Exhibit A.
What is it that we are looking at here?
It is Ian running away from scene of crime.
And how is it that you can tell it is the defendant, Ian?
As can see, I have magnified parts of feed and it is clear this is Ian. Look at funny hat with leaf and look clothing. It is unmistakeable that this is Ian.
While I am inclined to believe you, what with being head of security for over 10 years, might you have any forensic evidence? I mean, what if someone were to masquerade as Ian? though I highly doubt it...
I also find evidence inside of mansion which proves Ian was there.
~The prosecution submits Exhibit B.
And what is it that we are looking at here?
We recovered burnt bottle of pills.
And how does this bottle of pills prove that Ian was there?
On bottle, I find fingerprint matching the defendant, Ian.
Interesting. And where did you find these pills?
Inside of mansion, near back exit.
Was that part of the mansion opened up to the public that night?
Negative. Guests were only allowed in mansion hall. No one was supposed to be there.
So are you saying that Ian somehow gained access to the mansion where he was not supposed to be? And was later seen fleeing the crime scene?
So you run the Gaia Guild Registry? I take it this means that you are very aware of what's going on in the Gaian community?
Um ... of course.
You said it yourself, you run the Guild Registry in your SPARE time and yet you expect the jury to believe that you are intouch with the community when you spend all of your time patrolling Barton?
Well ... um, yeah.
Can you please tell the court what "G-Team" is?
Um ... I'd rather not talk about it. No one is supposed to know about that.
Well then, let me explain it for you. This G-Team is a little club you run with two other washed up old men as you masquerade as "superheroes" trying to save Gaia.
Well, I ...
And so here we have it, Leon-- a full-time Barton Patrolman, a part-time Guild Registry Manager AND a full-time SUPERhero?! Come now, Leon. Do you honestly expect us to believe that you have any time to really get to know anyone in the community?
Were you EVEN aware that there are tons of anti-Ian threads all around Town? Did you know that there are anti-Ian guilds in the registry?
Well, no... not really.
NOT REALLY ... is what you say. NOT REALLY, indeed. I have no further questions.
