Ever since the appearance of a new phantom thief, there had been countless heists that resulted in media attention and the thief getting away. Most of these cases were assigned to the same detective, Shuichi Saihara, as he was regarded as one of the best and likely one of the only people capable of catching this thief. He was determined to catch them as well, even if he only knew that they had purple hair and wore a white outfit. The rest was a mystery, and it was impossible to know his true identity.
However, it almost seemed as if the thief knew that they were assigning the same detective to chase him, as more heists occurred, happening almost daily now. Was he trying to wear the detective out so he could get away? That seemed to be the case, although it remained unclear. With how many teasing comments he would make towards him, it was likely that he was trying to bother the detective until he eventually gave up on catching him. Whether that was because of the comments or due to the inevitable exhaustion was unclear, but it seemed like his motive was getting the detective to give up.
As another report came in, he sighed to himself, although he was unsurprised by the fact that there was yet another heist. That was the fourth one in a row, and the detective had already gone three nights without sleep because of this. The chases didn't usually last most of the night, but he found himself unable to sleep after most of them for one reason or another. By this point, he was running purely off his desire to finish his job and caffeine. It wasn't exactly a good thing, but he couldn't give up just yet.
Upon arriving at the scene, he immediately saw the thief standing there. It was likely that he was expecting his arrival and wished to tease him. That tended to be how those encounters went, and then there would be a chase until the thief eventually got away. With how much he was exhausting the detective, this was likely to occur quickly, but not without some teasing first. He made his way to the purple-haired thief, waiting for him to make a comment.
