TFR/Off-Season 3[edit | edit source]

A resident of Cope Island.

Married Kiryu Kazuma and had a son called Jackson "Chinman" Kiryu.

TFR/Season 8[edit | edit source]

Jill was raised in Steven Sonozaki's institution, Sunflower Orphanage, where she became a close friend of Kiryu Kazuma and Matou Kariya, the former of whom she would fall in love with. Though she was initially distant, Matou Sakura would convince her to open herself up, resulting in her becoming closer with the other orphans. At 19 years old, she begins working as a bartender.

Kiryu and Kariya buy presents for Jill for her birthday. However, Kariya would go on to kill Sakura's mother, and Kiryu volunteered to take the blame. The trauma of causes her to lose her memory, and she disappears from the hospital shortly after being admitted. Eventually, her son Jackson is born, and she regains her memories, placing Jackson in the orphanage, and goes into hiding, working in a different bar under a hidden identity, and visiting her son occasionally.

After Kiryu is released from prison, Jill goes missing again and is suspected to have the key to the keyboards operation. Kiryu tracks her down, and she is able to be reunited with Jackson and Kiryu at the top floor of the Millennium Tower in the bar, where she admits to Kiryu that she always had feelings for him since she was young. There, Kiryu and Kariya have one final battle with Kiryu emerging the victor. At this point, Sudou Tatsuzou arrives and attempts to kill Kiryu and Jackson, but Jill takes a keyboard shot for them, saving their lives. Sudou and Kariya then die in an explosion Kariya triggers that destroys the keyboards hidden in the tower.

She then dies from her wounds in front of Kiryu and her son, who cries out for her. She is buried alongside Kariya in the same cemetery.

Although, somewhere far away... maybe someone still continues to watch over Kiryu and her son...

Episode 11: Mystery at Club Vesuvio[edit | edit source]

Screaming again, Artie Bucco wonders where The Bartender had been, but she tells him to sue her if just washing hands is against the rules now. She asks if he thinks the guy will work out, but he's exasperated since he lacks any idea of how "this" works and throws it back at her, so The Bartender points that he's pretty tall compared to Tohno and Matou and not dressed too shabby, so Artie gives the go ahead. The Bartender turns to Battler, and says that he gets points for making her job easier since his outfit is good enough. Next she asks if he's alright with talking to older women, which he addledly nods to since he's 'talking to her right now after all', which instantly has her take away the bonus points. Either way, all their clients are pushovers, so even if he's a wet towel personality-wise, his looks will carry him. Until he's called, The Bartender tells him to wait in the locker room and bleed his lizard or whatever he needs to do to freshen up. Ignoring the strange remark, Battler moves on.

Part 2

From outside the locker room, Artie calls 'Nanaya', Shiki's stage name, up, and next The Bartender calls the "new guy", leaving Shinji in complete disbelief and outrage.

The Bartender warns him that the customer this time is a first-timer―just like himself. Normally they'd put her with a more tenured guy, but she seemed pretty nervous and The Bartender absent-mindedly mentioned putting her with a new guy, which she seemed receptive to. As advice, the women here just want to feel young again, so treating them like a girl his age will do the trick. With a confident expression (yet not demeanor), Battler rushes to say <G-Good evening, madam.> and compliment her looks tonight as soon as he feels the presence of the client arriving without paying attention, and the client likewise nervously introduces herself, until... Battler and his aunt Rosa find themselves face to face. After a prolonged shock where they stutter at each other, Battler tries to get up so he can ask the Bartender for a different host, but Rosa suddenly screams for him to stay, under the reason that "it's both their first time she doesn't want to cause him nor the club any trouble". In his mind, Battler just yearns for death at this complete nightmare scenario, vowing to kill Shiki for the exact case he feared happening coming true. In a nervous way that is "different" than the other party, Rosa wonders how Battler ended up here, and he explains that a friend from the wrestling promotion clued him into this place. Since he brought it up, Rosa remembers Rudolf mentioning one thing or other like that last they spoke, but truthfully she always imagined wrestlers as middle-aged muscle-bound ogres... suddenly, Rosa fervently asks if he's doing stuff like grappling with other young boys without shirts and stuff, and although Battler claims he uses his normal clothes, he must still get sweaty and stuff, and then go into the back and take a shower together, right!? Rosa's breathing becomes ragged as she wonders if she was wrong for yelling at Maria for watching that stuff after all... Battler tries to cut through the awkwardness by asking how's Maria, but Rosa replies that who cares.

Somehow, Battler survived the slotted time and didn't die of embarrassment. He sends Rosa away with <See you again. Have a nice day!>, but she lets out a small laugh as she says he wouldn't get away with something lame like that if he weren't so handsome, and replies with her own <See you again.> since she'll come back for sure. Even The Bartender wonders what the hell did he say to make that go so well, but Battler remains silent, leaving her confused

Part 3

As he goes into another meltdown, The Detective explains to Artie that someone has been buying Google Play Cards, utterly untraceable technology, using the customers' credit cards, but they've traced the transaction to the locale's computers. Artie shouts that he's not closing up so he can conduct an investigation without a warrant, but the Detective is just giving him the chance to solve this in-house because, from the way the culprit has it set up, they're splitting the customer's transactions between his club and these cards, so it's only him being defrauded. Optionless, Artie calls Yukari to gather everyone for a meeting, even thought she was just about to leave.

Battler can't believe things are going so wrong in just his first day. Most of all, Artie is flabbergasted that after being so good to them, they PAY HIM BACK WITH NONSTOP ASSRAPE!?!?!? Emiya tries to calm him down since it must be a misunderstanding, but the Detective cuts him short since it's traced to the club's network for the past several weeks, so it narrows it down to some employee. His best course of action, he suggests, is to put the person with an impregnable alibi to lead the investigation―Artie of course suggests himself first, but to his dismay Togusa says that he's not necessarily free of suspicion. Battler decides to speak up to say that it's his first day not only working but visiting here, as strong an alibi as it gets, and that he'll "do it". When asked if he has any experience, he mentions he's read a bunch of detective novels and was part of the "Elite Enigmas", prompting Yukari to say that they're saved now that "Sherlock Holmes" is here after reading trashy books while on a wrestling gimmick. Either way, the Detective says the important thing is his alibi, and that he'll be waiting if he gets stumped. He's ready to begin his job as "Battler Ushiromiya: Ace Detective", but Yukari thinks it's more appropriate to call him "Faggler Ushitromiya: Stupid Faggot Little Cocksucker"!... he wonders if she's related to any bald guys perchance, but she just yucks. The floors is his', but the Detective outlines that he should concentrate on interviewing everyone and investigating the club itself, as his two cents.

For a first day on the job, The Bartender bets Battler wasn't planning on taking her testimony, but this is actually therapeutic after what happened earlier, which Battler doesn't even want to think about. Since they never got properly introduced, Battler asks for her name, but The Bartender claims names are for friends and this one has nothing to do with the investigation, so he can keep using 'Bartender', 'Barkeep', or 'Mama' like everyone else. From her name, he can safely tell she's in charge of the bar (real detective observation right there, she adds), but obviously her responsibilities don't end there. Indeed, it's easier to ask what she DOESN'T do, considering Artie's no good beyond cooking, which is of little importance in such a place, so the business-side falls mostly on her shoulders. Since that's the case, Battler asks for every employee's role, which she amiably obliges. Emiya's job is in the kitchen, but he also takes care of cleaning and tons of other things. Especially oddjobs and fixes which he usually carries out before anyone's even noticed the fault, to the point they've never had to call an electrician or repairman. Yukari's the real polite and cordial receptionist... to the paying customers, she doesn't take any bullshit and quickly deals with any drama; over-attached customers, angry husbands, jealous imoutou, and whatnot (Battler's real glad Ange is too young to know this kind of place and prays Rosa stays silent). Other than reception (and of course processing a few of the payments), she helps Artie or the barkeep bring food to customers, and lately's begun to be taught basic book-keeping and accounting to offload her some resposibility. The hosts (including Battler), of which a few are still on vacation, are self-explanatory enough, but at closing time or slow business they'll be asked to help out Emiya. Most are pretty amenable about it, but Shinji always throws a hissyfit, so she has to whip him a bit for him to fall into line (he can't tell at all if she means it literally). Artie's the owner, but he's more of a layabout that occasionally cooks; he used to chat up the customers, but she got him to quit since women that come to escape middle-aged men don't want to be hit on by one. Then there's... The Bartender herself. On paper she just runs the bar, but in practice she runs the club itself (save the kitchen); she scouts and interviews talent (although Tohno did that instead today), which Artie will sometimes pretend to be involved with, but he's got no idea what women want to see. And unless someone suddenly crawls out of the vents, that's everyone. Since she mentioned she's more-or-less in charge of business, Battler asks if she wouldn't be the first to be in notice of the profit discrepancy, but while she's aware in a day-to-day basis, only Artie himself is privy to budget and profit (and if she was, this club wouldn't be in such a state). Battler thanks her for explaining all that.

Investigation

Everything that could be turned up was done so, so he approaches The Detective, but there's just one thing left to check... everyone's hands. Not bad for a kid, the Detective notes, and calls everyone over.

The Bartender's are a good deal cuter than one would expect, and perfectly clean, as you'd expect that from a bartender.

Evidence Present[edit | edit source]

Without further ado, Battler's ready to present his conclusion. First of all is the most crucial piece of evidence: the Google Play cards. Naturally everyone is shocked, but more so Emiya as the red coloring means it really was one of them, not in the sense Shiki thinks at first, but rather that he hoped none of them present was the culprit. But if Tohno got here after the cake was cleaned up, and she herself never goes to that smelly lockerroom, Yukari deduces herself and Tohno are officially innocent (although Tohno bickers that she couldn't know the smell if she never enters)―yet while Battler doesn't want to halt the banter, he has to say neither are enough to exonerate them: Shiki could have smeared the cards from the dumpster, and Yukari could simply have had an accomplice dump them in the room for her. Yukari protests that the accomplice would have ratted her out by now, but Battler thinks that they'd be too worried about casting suspicion on themselves.

Stopping the sidetracking, The Bartender summarizes it that, in all likelihood, it was someone who had been here before the cake got cleaned and thrown away, and also been in the locker room. Now it's Battler's time to present one more piece of evidence, and this is the one that will open the path to accuse someone. He chooses...

...the red-stained keyboard (which scares Artie as someone used to deal with organized crime). The Bartender, Emiya, and others are confused at what does that prove, until Yukari mentions her hands were dry before using it and only noticed the stains after they got done cleaning, assuming some cake just flew into it... awfully late to bring it up, says Shiki. Before Battler can say another word, The Bartender stops him since she figured what he'll say next and calls it a leap of logic: he was about to imply that because the cards were stained, they must have been redeemed on the stained computer―but that's a leap of logic―just because the person got the cards stained doesn't mean the keyboard would necessarily also be stained; they could have stained the cards on accident, and then redeemed them later. That's pretty logical, Battler agrees, but she's making a critical mistake: entertaining the 'how' and ignoring the 'why'. First, Yukari's scenario is pretty unfeasible, considering how through they were, and second, why would someone use the computer with west frosting? Yukari starts saying there's no way they wouldn't have noticed if someone had–––but stops herself before finishing, owning it to a bad cramp (leg one!). The conversation was cut short and Battler didn't get to make all his points, but it's finally time to point out the culprit―or he was going to, until Yukari decided to steal "mr. cumbreath"s thunder to announce it herself―it's Shinji. While "Sherlock Homo" was out, they had nothing to do but stare at the walls... or each other, and the faggot gloves stick out like a sore thumb. After forcefully taking them off, he's, quite literally, red-handed; Emiya nor Tohno can act surprised, and Artie burns up as he shouts that he took him in despite being one of "them". Of course, Shinji claims the bitch Yukari is setting him up and is probably the culprit. The Detective gets next to Battler and laments having to put him on the spot, but he's gotta pick a definitive before it gets out of control.

Naturally, Battler... claims he's innocent; he already knew about his hands. So why waste their time, wonders Yukari? Because his guilt has nothing to do with what's being discussed right now. In fact, calling him innocent might not be correct, because he's guilty... of knocking over the cake. However he did it, he rushed in to change his clothes at the locker room (staining the locker in the process), and then put on gloves when he couldn't clean the stains. In that case, Yukari thinks it makes her argument even stronger, proving he did it on purpose: he got the icing on the cards, and used the gloves to redeem them in the bar computer. However, the gloves only serve to hide his stained skin as he could've washed the wet icing off by then, and more importantly, Battler has two points that prove it can't be Shinji. First, the Google Play Cards are composed of the card itself and an envelope, one should be able to handle them with stained hands and then take the card itself after having cleaned up, but both parts are stained, and moreso he can't imagine a reason to open the envelope ahead of time yet keep it around; the envelopes were being opened as cards were redeemed―and in that way, the keyboard got stained as well. The only keyboard that makes sense as being used is the reception one, which brings about the other point... did anyone see Shinji entering the room? In order to be the culprit, two conditions must be fulfilled: having wet icing-stained hands, and using the computer with those hands. It's possible he could have done all this before anyone stumbled upon the scene, but's it sounds highly unlikely for Shinji to not flee the scene as quickly as possible, fearing getting yelled at over the cake and completely ignorant of the greater goings-on, before taking refuge in the locker room to sequester himself until the cake was mostly forgotten about.

While Shinji certainly appreciates being exonerated and all, he doesn't really have to make him sound so pathetic, but Artie tells him to zip it since he still owes him a cake. Either way, the culprit must have redeemed the cards in plain sight, so Battler asks the ones who were cleaning... did they see anyone using the computer?

As they remain silent in doubt (or culpability), it's now time to reveal the one who has their hands as stained as Shinji, but in guilt rather than red, and stained hands are to be cleansed. Battler takes the opportunity to reveal the culprit... The Bartender! Yukari suddenly tries to get Battler to not "gloss over" Shinji just because it's unlikely, but he throws back that she herself said the first time she saw the stain was when the club was about to open. Yukari screams up in frustration, but while The Bartender appreciates her sticking up for her, she's confident she can take it, and tells Battler she assumes the accusation isn't without some kind of evidence.

That evidence is... her hands. Completely spotless. While it's par for her job to not end the complaint subject of chatty Cathys and Karens, Emiya was unable to get it off after cleaning dishes all night. So she claims she used something else, but still, why didn't she tell Emiya and Yukari? Picking up the subject of the claim, Yukari props up Artie whose hands are clean, much as he protests that they obviously aren't (which Emiya whispers isn't good to shout for a cook), which Yukari says is obviously because he does everything half-assed, but he still could have totally used the computer while the others were cleaning.

There's two things Battler has to address here. First, what Yukari said about him is exactly right... he's lazy (at first agreeing, then almost shouting, Artie can't decide if it's better to disagree or not); he helped out a little, so his hands are a little dirty. Then... the final piece of evidence: A half-empty Moonshine, kept on display, and not on the list of drinks bough in the day, with its seal in the trash despite Emiya taking all trash out before opening. Emiya's also been saying before the night even begun that rubbing alcohol might be able to get rid of the stains. Yukari still wouldn't put it past Artie to drink on the job, who admits he might here and there but isn't so far gone to drink moonshine like a hillbilly―a conveniently timed inappropriate outburst, as Battler gets to ask where he gets the drinks for the job. Since Artie can't form a coherent word, Emiya answers for him; he used to sneak stuff from the bar, so The Bartender started to charge him whenever so much as a single drop went missing, and soon enough learned to bring his own flask. With Battler's impression that The Bartender wouldn't miss a beat when it came to her 'domain' confirmed, it begs the question how half a bottle went missing; if she's the kind of person to charge for even the smallest missing merchandise, then wasting half a bottle of a drink on something trivial like replacing rubbing alcohol is out of the question... without a reason. But just like her responsibilities, that logic doesn't stop at the bar; everyone agreeds she basically runs the club, except for herself who said a portion of the finances were outside her control, while Artie actually claimed the opposite... it wasn't clear who was lying, until now. Now there's just one last question, that Yukari already answered, but needs to be verified by everyone else. Battler asks Emiya directly: when he was cleaning up... someone got up to use the computer, didn't they?

Indeed, it happened. Emiya didn't pay it attention since it didn't seem unusual. The Bartender said she needed to take care of some reservations before the club opened, that she'd then be right back to helping. Battler also says that Yukari cut the conversation earlier because at that moment she had figured it out, and has been trying to cover for her since then, but Yukari's only response is telling him to not talk to her.

Now, I think it's obvious to everyone. The culprit of this defrauding scheme... is you, the Bartender.

Confession

Finally, she gives up. Not like she was gonna get out of this, even if Battler didn't figure things out, The Detective's smug look proves he had this figured out since he walked in the door. For stringing them all along despite being fucked from the start, Shinji calls her the rotten miserable excuse for a woman he always knew she was, and for once Shiki agrees with him (on the first part only), but asks why. She thinks, maybe she was hoping Battler fucked up so bad even The Detective would get caught up, or... maybe she'd rather be slowly ruined by a young guy than unceremoniously destroyed by an older one (The Detective not appreciating much the innuendo since he's a married man).

The only thing that Battler's missing is 'why'―the true reason too obviously, but after weeks of getting away with it, why today? The answer, is the single piece of evidence Battler couldn't have found, and why The Detective knew all along: The customer who called the police to report the defrauding, who also called the club first, and spoke with The Bartender herself. She guesses when she called the police, she mentioned who she spoke with. Of course, The Detective mentions, he didn't bring that tidbit up in case it wasn't a solo work. She was trying to convince the woman not to call the police when the cake incident happened, the final proof Shinji was nothing but a pain in her ass (and he agrees the feeling's mutual).

She panicked, time was running out, the cops could drop any time. It would have been smarter to just dump the cards... but she couldn't just throw that money away. The truth is, she has a son. A lot of things happened, very long ago, and she lost the privilege of calling herself his mother. In that way, Shinji's remark was completely right. The person taking care of him now is a man―a REAL man, probably only one she's known to exist. He started an orphanage, and she thought, even if she lost the right to be a part of both their lives... she could still support them, anonymously. But couple of weeks ago, something terrible happened. Jackson, he... on the news.... he got in some trouble... and he needed her help more than ever, so... The Detective tells her that's enough, and she doesn't owe it to them to say anymore.

Even if they don't know the specifics, Emiya argues she could've asked for help and they'd all have chipped in, even Shinji (who tries to protest but is interrupted), and Shiki understands why she'd resort to stealing, but their money problems are insignificant compared to what rough she has it. For once even Yukari agrees with everyone. Thought their words are kind and she thanks them all, The Bartender couldn't afford to put that onus on any of them, and believes she has to carry her sins and burdens. Maybe that's right, but Battler says that doesn't mean she can't be lent a shoulder―and if she's too proud to lean on, maybe they ought to pick up and carry her instead! Battler turns to The Detective, and wonders if since it's a criminal case, he's gonna find out exactly where she's been sending the funds... normally that information isn't made public, he says, but maybe something slips through the cracks every now and then.

Still, The Detective says hates to interrupt the mood, but he's still gotta take "Ms. Stingray" to the station... a crime's a crime. He can't see the club doing gangbusters, so he guesses it's not enough for her to do any real hard time. Yukari tries to appeal to everything she confessed, but The Detective puts down that rules are rules... still, he'll make sure the judge and prosecutor take it into account. The Bartender apologizes to Yukari, and asks her to take care of the place and keep the boys in line, who promises to do her best while holding back tears.

The Detective approaches Battler, patting him for a good job and wondering if he ever considered the force; he wouldn't be a plainclothes off the bat and make even less money than he does now, but he got a real knack for it. Battler's a little beyond himself as The Detective explains that, while he started with more information, the kid filled the blanks and even figured things he probably couldn't have. As Battler thanks him profusely for the praise, The Detective motions to get going, and if he's ever by HQ, to ask for Togusa, which Battler replies with a positive "I will!". As The Bartender walks, Artie can barely muster to ask how she could do this to him when he loved her, but The Bartender throws back that he'd fall for anything with two legs and a hole between them fresher than his wife's―which is why it was so easy to steal from him. He has a complete breakdown...

You... YOU CUNT! YOU EVIL BITCH! YOU ROTTEN FUCKIN' WHORE! DON'T LET ME EVER SEE YOUR FACE AROUND HERE! AND DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT TRYIN' SOMETHING LIKE THIS AGAIN! WE'LL FIND OUT, WE ALWAYS DO! WE LEAD THE WORLD IN COMPUTERIZED DATA COLLECTION!

Seeing her beyond herself with grief, Battler tries to console Yukari one last time, only for her to tell him to shut up and never talk again. Tohno comes running with how amazing Battler was and that The Detective even put him over, but after a short laugh, Battler admits he still finds kind of bad, after all it was his first day at the place and he basically tore its heart out. He's being a bit melodramatic, Shiki thinks, and while everyone liked her (even Shinji although he'll never admit), it wasn't his fault. Most of all though, Battler laments giving Yukari an actual reason to hate him. Shiki gets she's hot and all, but he also thinks of the nicest way to put this, so he just says she's "kind of a cunt"... Battler's expression lightens slightly, Shiki can't believe it... he can't really have a thing for girls like that, can he...?
