Stage Entry
Initial "The vice principal seems to have lost his notebook, and he seems desperate to find it again. I'de like to help out, but it's be easier if I knew where to start."
1 After speaking with Vice Principal Heinrich a second time:
  • He mentioned something about dropping it when he was on the roof of the main building...
2 After investigating the rooftop:
  • It seems as though the vice principal was facing out in the courtyard at one point, but moved toward the academy field with his notebook in hand. So maybe...
3 After investigating the Academy Field:
  • Apparently, a group of students found something next to the field and headed off somewhere quiet to look at it.
4 After investigating the male students:
  • Rex and his group of friends gave me a black leather notebook. I should return this to the vice principal a.s.a.p.
5 After returning to Vice Principal Heinrich:
  • I gave the vice principal his notebook back and learned all about Rixia Mao!
