Proscott Cormic is the candidate for a new judge in New Ashos. He wants to make gambling illegal which doesn’t sit well with Lawrence Lexington who runs the ‘Lion’. So in response Lawrence sends someone to ensure Proscott’s demise.
If Proscott was not killed on the first attempt on Bright Beach and managed to get away he will later be taken care of in his home. To make it appear to have been a burglary gone wrong the Cormic House Crest, a precious item will be taken and then thrown into the sea.
