|Jezail Brett||Image Gallery|
Ann Sasha (mostly known under the pseudonym Jezail Brett) was an English assassin covering as a foreign exchange student attending Teito Yuumei University in Japan during the Meiji period. She was dining at the "La Quantos" restaurant along with her teacher, John Watson, shortly before his murder. She appeared as a witness during Ryūnosuke Naruhodō's subsequent trial for the crime.
An unexpected assassin Edit
In spite of her demeanor, Ann Sasha actually worked as an assassin. London's Chief Justice Hart Vortex hired her to eliminate all defendants who escaped Guilty verdicts in Barok van Zieks' trials to make it seemed like he was cursed. After a while, Vortex decided to have her kill John H. Watson to prevent him from talking about an autopsy report regarding a serial killer nicknamed the "Professor," while someone else went to London to handle a separate individual who was also involved. So Sasha took on the name "Jezail Brett" and was sent as exchange student from Great Britain. She worked in Dr. Watson's research faculty in the medical block. She was studying a poison called "curare" that is only known in Europe and America.
Final hit request Edit
- Main Article: The Adventure of the Great Departure
Brett was dining with Professor Watson within the western themed Japanese restaurant, La Quantos. It was there she saw her chance to murder him swiftly and without notice, by use of poison in his drink. However, her plan almost fell apart when she and Watson were approached by another patron, a young man who had the intent of introducing himself to the visiting professor.
When the professor had succumbed to the poison, his body began to fall so she used the chair to support the body. She dropped one of her handguns that she had hidden under her dress so that the young man would be blamed for the murder. She then fired her second handgun to make it look like Professor Watson died from blood loss. As the waiter shoved the young man in to the supply closet, she made her escape. However, the young man soon remembered her as he went to face trial.
At the Trial Edit
Brett was soon called as a witness in the trial of the young man she had encountered before. She first spoke English even though she knew Japanese because she thought the language was unfit for her to speak. When the defense found out that there might be poison in the carbonated water that was at the scene, she grabs the bottle and drops it causing the rug to soak it up. By revealing Taizou Uzukumaru stole Sanmon Sonohigurashi's koban as separate incident, the defense finally proves that she is guilty. She is dragged around the courtroom by the swan on her hat and fully acknowledges her crime but does not reveal her motive AKA anything about Vortex's program. The British government called for the right of consul and Japan became unable to try this British woman in their courts. So she would eventually sent to Shangai to stand trial as there is a consul office of Great Britain's there.

Despite killing John Watson, Jezail Brett was allowed to continue research. Close to her extradition date to Shanghai, she asked that her last memory of Japan be at the beach, with a detective assigned by the government allowing it. Heita Mamemomi, a journalist working under author Sōseki Natsume, came into her beach hut to interview her about the crime she committed. However, Brett just made fun of him, calling him a "monkey" who didn't know the difference between peeking and journalism. Unknown to her, Mamemomi slipped some poison he secretly got from a previous interview into her drink.
After he left, a girl named Haori Murasame approached Brett to return the poison that was currently in her stomach; Murasame thought she stole the poison. Heita Mamemomi was behind the beach house and realized he would get caught since the poison had some specific side effects and only someone outside of the lab would use it. So he secretly stabbed Brett in the back hoping that would kill her before the poison does. Haori Murasame was arrested for Brett's murder, but "Ryūtarō Naruhodō" exposed Heita Mamemomi in court. Satoru Hosonaga lamented that the world will never know why Jezail Brett killed John H. Watson now that she was dead, or so he thought...
At first glance, Brett appears to be calm and collected exuding an aura of innocence and grace. However, this no more than a facade, as she is in reality cunning and malicious. This is shown by her attempts to pin the murder on Naruhodō, such as dropping a handgun and firing a second to make him appear to be the murderer, blatantly accusing him of murdering Watson, and even stating that his punishment should be extended when his innocence was not yet proven and the trial had not even ended yet. The only benevolent trait about her is her love and devotion of the British Empire, citing English as the most beautiful language.
Brett is also shown to be very calculating and intelligible. She knew to use a poison that the police in that country had no idea existed, and spontaneously came up with an elaborate plot to frame Naruhodō for Watson's murder after her intended plan was disrupted. She also believes to believe Japanese culture to be barbaric, as shown in the game, she avoids speaking Japanese because she thinks it is unfit to be spoken by her and calls the police force to be undeveloped. She acts calm and collected until her breakdown in court.
