The Dinsdale Building

Jack, Paisely, Harriet and Sakura April lived in different suites on the middle floors of the building. The top floor was an observatory/occultarium, with the bottom floor being a standard office for recieving clients. The underground housed "The Vault," which is a massive room shielded from spacetime, where Jack keeps suspicious items and recovered artifacts from cases.

On June 6th, 2011, the building was destroyed by an unknown adversary.


Investigation 1: The Book of Spirits


Jack Dinsdale, looking to secure $5,000,000 in funding for his new investigation team, is hired by Michael Sunnyside to raid the great archives of Soul Society's Shinigami Research Institute, the objective being to uncover information pertaining to the manipulation of Spirit Particles.

After gaining the location of a Senkai Gate from Furu L. Amoros, Dinsdale and his team breached the security of Soul Society and found the requested information, which Sunnyside put to use in his Project: PHOENIX. While in Soul Society, Dinsdale was forced to face and come to terms with the spectre of the love who abandoned him, who appeared as a thirteen-armed Asura. Sakura April confronted the spectre of her creator, and, in defeating her, finally learned that she had a soul, and broke her programming. Noriko received a premonition of her own death, but did not reveal this to anyone.

Having secured the funds, Dinsdale began construction on the Dinsdale Building and formally started his business.

Investigation 2: In Deadly Dream


Contacted by a frightened young woman constantly besieged by nightmares, Harriet Weinberg referred her to Dinsdale, who discovered that every night, she was being drawn into another dimension populated by the Great Old Ones, wherein a mad scientist, Doctor Hugo Strange, who had learned to penetrate the Spiritus Mundi, or Collective unconciousness, was hoping to use their power in order to drive world leaders to war. The investigation crew was able to stop the scientist's plot, but he continues to lurk in the Dreamscape and the crew journeys there frequently to track him down.

Investigation 3: The Rat Pack


The crew is hired by The Stabateur to find Legendary Pokemon Mew Two ostensibly so that the members of Stabateur's organization can "make peace with it." Neither Jack nor Paisley believe this motive in the slightest, but seek the Pokemon anyway, hoping to stay one step ahead of the Organization's true plans...
