From my understanding, here is a basic outline of the plot:
-Inga kidnaps Maya so that he can use her as a bartering chip to get the Founder's orb.
-Dhurke tries to rescue Maya, just because he's a cool dude.
-Inga shoots Dhurke, runs away, and then later comes back and puts his body in the coffin after he dies. I don't think the game really specifies whether he hides the body before or after Maya channels Dhurke and escapes.
-Dhurke-Maya goes to Japanifornia, partly to find the orb and partly just to see Apollo.
-First half of the case happens.
-Team Apollo return to Khur'ain to save Maya, who unbeknownst to them is already safe.
-Inga arranges a hostage transfer meeting with Dhurke, EVEN THOUGH HE ALREADY KNOWS FIRSTHAND THAT DHURKE IS DEAD AND BURIED IN THE TOMB. Inga thus establishes himself as the stupidest villain in the entire series.
-Around 2:00, Gar'an kills Inga in the tomb, while dressed as Dhurke. Amara is channeling some random spirit at the time for a foreign official.
-Around 2:30, Amara (somehow knowing that Inga is dead) runs into Inga's quarters, chased by Shah'do.
-Amara channels Inga and runs to the tomb.
-Dhurke-Maya is already in the tomb, but does not see Inga's corpse because it is behind the sarcophagus.
-Inga-Amara sneaks up behind Dhurke-Maya and exorcises Dhurke
-Amara then channels Dhurke, sets up the scene to make it appear like Maya is still kidnapped, changes clothes with Maya (whose robes the game even lampshades as having come out of nowhere), burns the old clothes, then waits in the tombs until the guards come in to arrest him-her.
-Amara apparently does this with little to no coordination with Dhurke, as Apollo had to convince her to trust in Dhurke.
So, my issues/questions here:
-What the hell, Inga? You literally buried Dhurke in a coffin, to which only two people have the key. You've married into a family of spirit mediums. You know damn well what this situation means. And apart from that, how is it even possible that you did not notice that Maya, your hostage, was missing for several days, while "Dhurke" was in another country? Even if we're to assume he never checked up on Maya at all during that time, the moment Dhurke spoke to him on the phone, he should've gone to the tomb straightaway to make sure that his bartering chip was still there. And then when he found that she wasn't, he should've called off the hostage transfer, because it could only end poorly for him. Inga should of course have known at that point that "Dhurke" was really Maya. This guy is a freaking idiot. How he became Justice Minister is beyond me.
-If Inga killed the hated enemy of the regime and had the corpse to prove it, why would he not publicly announce the death? The rebels go on about how Dhurke's death would mean the end to the rebellion, so it seems to me like this would have been the smart thing to do in Inga's position. Heck, even if we're going the "murder is still murder" route, he's the frigging Minister of Justice. He could've easily pinned the crime on somebody else. Instead, we're just left to assume that only he knew Dhurke was dead, and maybe Gar'an, and apparently also Amara for some reason.
-Dhurke says he's leading a bloodless rebellion. Sure, the game wants us to sympathize with the rebels and I'm okay with that... But I guess "bloodless" doesn't include when Datz was totally prepared to stab Phoenix with a machete if he hadn't held the right ideals.
-How does Amara even know that Dhurke is dead? The entire plot hinges around her channeling him. Yet Inga shot him and the only witness channeled him and escaped to a different country. Are we to assume that Inga was bragging about the murder to her or something? This also only works if Dhurke getting shot by Inga and channeled by Maya was part of Dhurke's plan.
-The whole "frame Dhurke for Inga's murder" thing seems way more complicated than it should be. Gar'an is literally the queen. No need to get her own hands dirty. She could just have some mook smother Inga in his sleep. Then plant evidence suggesting Dhurke was at the crime (if she knows Dhurke's dead, that's even better, since she can continue to use him as a mystery scapegoat forever for propaganda purposes). Her regime has already been established as framing people for various crimes, so this kind of thing should be child's play for her.
-Amara was being blackmailed by Gar'an, so she went along with the plot to frame Dhurke. And yet when she channeled Dhurke in the tomb and set up the crime scene to make it look like he did it, that was not Amara acting... it was Dhurke. Another point on that, Amara channeling Dhurke was part of Gar'an's plan... She KNOWS it's really Amara. So what's she gonna do if there's a guilty verdict? They've announced a public execution, so... execute Dhurke-Amara and kill the only spirit medium in the kingdom? Doesn't her whole plan revolve around the fact that she's not able to channel spirits and needs Amara to do it for her?
-Up until the trial, the Khur'ainese public only saw Rayfa as being Gar'an's daughter. So if Gar'an followed through on her threats to harm Rayfa, it would hurt her own public reputation. She already has a rebellion on her doorstep and now she wants to be known as the woman who executed her own kid? And what happens after that? If Rayfa dies, both Nahyuta and Amara have no reason to follow along with anything that Gar'an tells them to do.
Basically, any threats that Gar'an makes to hurt the Khur'ainese nobility are entirely empty.
-The game says that Rayfa will become queen now and Nahyuta will act as her regent. But... why? They just proved that Amara is still alive.
