A confession

[…] She doesn't know where the huge jewel is, but she is certain it is real. […] a man […] charmed her twin […] with expensive glim jewellery. […] When […] tracked her sister down, she was both pregnant and quite insane. […] singing inhuman songs […]

Player summary:
The Fading Music-Hall Singer believes that the huge jewel is real. It was mentioned by a man who charmed her sister. Later she found her sister pregnant and insane (singing weird songs), and then thugs began to hound her to try and silence her.

She called on you because she believes you could help get that huge jewel. She does not tell you yet the name of the man who started all this.
