Forensics

From Delta-V Wiki

What leaves evidence?

  • Body parts inherit their owner's DNA
  • Implanters upon injecting or drawing
  • Syringes upon injecting or drawing
  • Hyposprays upon injecting
  • Medipens upon injecting
  • Cans and Food upon consumption
  • Cigarettes/Cigars/Pipes upon putting in your mouth
  • Blunt/Slashing/Piercing melee weapons on hitting someone
  • Puddles of blood
  • Touching items, doors and any equipment

Most interactions will leave some sort of "trace" that someone was there; either your fingerprints and fibers or your DNA itself.

Fingerprints

Many interactions with and between crew members, items, doors, machinery, and many other things leave behind fingerprints, which can naturally be traced:

  • Picking up and using items
  • Operating computers and other machinery
  • Bumping into or clicking on doors to open/close them
  • Pulling objects or bodies
  • etc.

Fibers and Gloves

If you aren't given a fingerprint on the Forensic Analyzer, you can still help identify suspects with fibers.

It is to note that fingerless gloves leave fingerprints AND fibers.

Evildoers: How to get rid of evidence?

It is possible to wipe off fingerprints/DNA/fibers using soap or a rag, should you need to clear your tracks. Rags will leave a fiber, and soap will leave a residue, to hint that the object was unusually cleaned.

The main barrier between you and a clean get-away, will be the Detective, who's Forensic Scanner is the main tool to discover left-behind forensics.
