Misc Facts: Since returning from overseas Ema has developed an
obsession with fried dough cakes (Japanese snacks, called karintou) and

Ema's not all that happy about being a detective, and complains often that

SL-9 and case 1-5). At the end of PW:AA, Ema left to study forensics
She only just recently returned, and took up a position as a detective
when she failed her proficiency test to work in forensics.
