Character's Name: Jing Feihu (精 飛狐)
Japanese: Sei Hikitsune
Occupation: Unemployed (Former Prosecutor)
Brief Physical Description: With messy red hair of an improbable cut, Fei is
174 cm tall, relatively slender and athletically built. He keeps in shape
and dresses in a manner that offers both comfort and confers an advantage
for hands on investigations or running away. He is almost always seen
dressed ready for take-off, goggles and all. Although many believe he
dresses like this to taunt those who cannot kill or capture him, as yellow
is a highly visible colour.
He has many scars on his body, several stab wounds on his torso and a
gunshot wound in his leg. There is a word in the language of Zheng Fa carved
into his chest, but he always keeps it hidden. He will only let it be seen
by those he trusts.
Brief Personality Description: Fei comes across as being carefree and
eccentric, often saying things he doesn't mean or completely opposite to
what he means. He is not overly expressive, and has a tendency to feign
feelings, manipulating or tricking others. Fei is a serial liar and not
particularly concerned about forging evidence or buying his way. He does
this because he believes he needs to fight fire with fire, and has lost all
hope in the judicial system. His motto is something along the lines of ‘The
goal justifies the means’. However he has a high sense of discipline and is
extremely filial to his parents.
Fei has a deep mistrust of all law enforcement agencies, especially
detectives (see background) and refuses to accept assistance or evidence
from them, preferring to supervise or conduct investigations by himself. He
also childishly likes to behave in a complete disregard for laws and social
customs. Fei manages to out fox the police’s pursuit most of the time…
In his field of work, he is considered a maverick, despised by more senior
colleagues, and not taken seriously by many, but his dedication and
single-mindedness when applying himself to his cases is both admired and
envied. However because of his unconventional style, he frequently exposes
himself to danger.
He is happiest when airborne, and loves to travel.
Connection to canon characters: (Main events set after the end of AAI)
Does not get along with any member of law enforcement, especially Shi-Long
Lang. Fei believes the Lang family's fall from grace proves his mistrust of
dectectives as well founded, and will continuously remind other lawyers and
prosecutors of this ad nauseum. However they keep running into each other as
a result of Shi-Long's prolific crime-busting activities. It is said if Fei
and Shi-Long are left in the same room alone, they will kill each other. As
such, they have a competition to see who will prove the other wrong: Whether
prosecutors or detectives are the scum.
Brief Background: Fei is born in Zheng Fa. He immigrated to the US as an
infant with his father. His mother and father met while studying at
university, and eloped together - he was from a poor family, a lower caste
and she was forbidden from marrying him as she is the daughter of the Mayor.
When Fei was only 2 years old, his mother was tricked into returning home to
visit her supposedly ailing father who forced her into an arranged marriage
to merge 2 powerful families. Since then she had been kept from returning to
her husband and son. Fearing her new husband, she had a secret hysterectomy
so that he will not have children. She was determined to leave everything to
her son, Fei. Enraged, her husband banished her to the US and did not permit
her any control of their combined companies. She did not know both Fei and
his father were in the same country, only discovering this upon reading
about Fei's case in the papers whereupon she immediately tracked him down.
His father remarried while living in the States, and had 3 more children
with his new wife. In order to protect his family, he stopped contacting
them, had them change their names and moved them overseas yet again.
As a rookie prosecutor, at the age of 22, he was selected to take on a case
where the overseeing prosecutor had retired. He formed a close working
relationship with the lead detective Yuu Dunnett, a veteran detective who
was working on the case to show him the way, and they formed a strong
working relationship. The case they worked on involved a drug gang
comprising several high school students. However in the ultimate betrayal,
Fei was almost killed when Dunnett was revealed to be the ringleader and
part of a larger criminal organisation. (He carries the scars to this day -
the word 'Sacrifice' was carved into his chest, plus several stab wounds).
The entire affair was covered up, leading Fei to believe there is rampant
corruption within law enforcement agencies, and shattering his belief in the
system. Because he was new to the profession, his attempts to reopen the
case were blocked repeatedly and he was ridiculed. Disillusioned, he quit.
However, when several attempts were made on his life again, his family
threatened, he realised he was targeted by those who had failed to kill him.
Soon after he was abducted and brought to an unknown location where he was
brought before a mysterious woman who provided him with a lot of money and
information about what had happened to him. Unbeknownst to him, this woman
was his mother. In return, she asked that he meet her every month and tell
him about his childhood, his father and his siblings.
With the money and information she provided him, Fei gained new confidence
to pursue the truth and expose the corruption in the system. He bought a
small plane which he pilots - in fact he flies to most places because
traveling by conventional methods was not safe. His mother also provided him
with bodyguard to protect him.
Disastrously, his mother was murdered only 3 months after their reunion. Her
husband, upon discovering their secret monthly meetings, had her killed. But
before then, she disclosed that her husband was intimately involved in what
had happened to Fei. Devastated, Fei swore to take revenge. To add insult to
injury, Fei was framed for the murder and arrested as the prime suspect.
He befriended Franziska while studying together in Germany, and contacts her
upon arrest. She brings Phoenix Wright to defend Fei, and also uses her
connections with Interpol to access increased investigative authority,
enlisting Shi-Long Lang's help. They discover the ones involved in forging
the evidence that led to the downfall of the Lang family was a result of the
same corruptive sources within law enforcement that affected Fei so
adversely. Fei and Shi-Long form a temporary truce in order to bring the
perpetrators to justice. The team secures an early release for Shih-na
because of her assistance in their investigations, and she joins them,
wanting to make up for what she has done.
The State seems intent on getting a death sentence for Fei, with massive
amounts of forged evidence. Will the team expose the core of corruption
before time runs out? Will he ever get his revenge, clear his name, and see
his family ever again? Or will Fei succumb to his demons and drag those who
fight to help him into the dark world of corruption?
Character's Name: Lorelei Campbell - うそつき いつも (Usotsuki
Name Meanings: English Name, her first name Lorelei containing the word
"Lie" at the end if pronouned correctly and Campbell being her last name and
literally meaning "Crooked Mouth" indicating that whatever comes out of her
mouth isn't straight, but a crooked lie. Japanese, Usotsuki her first name
is literally the word "Lair" and Itsumo her last name literally meaning
"Always" so in Japanese her name means Liar Always.
Occupation: Student and Barista
Brief Physical Description: Standing at 5" 7' weighing 125 lbs, Lorelei's
physique is typical of any North American girl. She has a wider and more
cute face with a wider bottom lip which more often then not makes her look
like she's pouting. Making up for her normallcy, Lorelei's hair is dyed pink
and she wears pink on both her lips and nails. Sporting a white t-shirt with
a steel samurai motif and purple and red jacket. She wears a "Steel Samurai"
armband and constantly brings her Iron Infant Doll wherever she goes.

way she moves and expresses herself. Everything about Lorelei is dramatic
and she will use arm movements, body language, facial expressions and any
other possible venue of dramatically conveying her emotions.
Brief Personality Description: Her personality is best defined to most as a
Steel Samurai fan but upon further time spent with Lorelei it is discovered
that what makes her stand out from the crowd is not fandom, it is the fact
that he is a pathilogical liar. Behind a bubbly and otherwise pleasant
personality is hidden the strange feature of Lorelei's compulsive lying.
Being a very typical pathilogical liar, Lorelei suffers from illusions of
grandure, believing at many times that she is either superbly greater then
she actually is or is a mastermind criminal. No matter what she does, it
always turns around to become part of the world that her lies have created.
Being one personality in front of one person and a minagarie of others
depending on who she speaks with one never knows who they'll be with when in
the presense of Lorelei. Creating social troubles for the girl, although
because of her sickness she easily presents to people the lie of being
extremly popular and a social icon. Her reaction upon being discovered as a
liar is to either blame the person calling her out as a liar themself or to
become violent and throw whatever is closest to her at said person. Aside
from her lying Lorelei has a pleasant personality and is what could be
considered a "fan girl". Taking on the personalites that you would find in
the "Otaku" social group.
Connection to Canon Characters: Lorelei has no relation to any of the cannon
characters. However during the Turnabout Convention case, she is a witness
at a murder trial where Phoenix Wright is Defense Attorney with Maya as his
aid and Miles Edgeworth stands as Prosecution. During the initial
investigation is Phoenix, Maya and Miles first encounter with Lorelei in
which she leaves quite and impression on the three, which is fully described
in her backgound.
Brief Background: Lorelei's conntection to the Ace Attorney series is during
a case that takes place after the events of Ace Attorney Investigations. The
case is called "Turnabout Convention". The setting takes place during a
Steel Samurai Convention where the Pink Princess' Actress is murdered.
Lorelei is taken as a witness to the murder for being one of the few people
that were in the vincinity of the crime at the time. She is questioned by
both Phoenix Wright who is at the Convention with Maya Fey and also
questioned by Miles Edgeworth and Detective Gumshoe who have been sent to
investigate the crime scene. When asked by Phoenix what she saw of the
crime, Lorelei dramaticcally recalls a tale of heroisim as she tells him a
story of how she tried to save her favorite actress and her deep regret at
not being able to succeced in her efforts. After claiming a very self
rightous position in the case, Phoenix and espcecially Maya and convinced
that Lorelei is not in fact the murderer but has information that would be
useful in hte court room. However, upon being questioned by Edgeworth and
Gumshoe Lorelei's story changes drammatically. Telling the two that she was
responsible for the murder and claiming to have killed the actress out of
raging jealously of her love for the Steel Samurai and attempts to bribe
Edgeworth and Gumshoe into not telling anyone with a lifetime supply of
extra tall mocha, caramel, lattespressochaicoffee with extra whip from her
work as a barista. Dispite Gumshoe being temped by the offer Edgeworth
dashes his hopes by assuring Lorelei that she indeed is not the murderer
becasue her fingerprints are no where to be found and the weapon she stated
to have used didn't work with the crime scene. Feeling threatened by being
told she was lying, Lorelei gets raging mad and throws her Iron Infant doll
at the Prosecutor. Almost being taken to the precinct for assaulting
Edgeworth with a stuffed doll, Lorelei is saved by Phoenix and Maya, who
finding another piece of evidence want to question her again. After the
questioning, Lorelei is excused and has become the first witness for the
murder trial the next day. After she leaves, both Defense and Prosecution
share their expreinces with the young woman, discovering that something is
strange about her behavious. But without any real recourse they're left to

to search for the girl. But once in the Court Room when asked to call the
first witness to the stand before Edgeworth can call his newly prepared
witness, Lorelei pops up on the witness stand out of no were smiling widely
and seemingly very happy. Following the judges insructions she states her
name but when asked her occupation Lorelei tells the courtroom that she is
the actress of the Pink Princess, causing questions to be raised about both
the victim's identity and Lorelei's credibility. Upon having her sanity
questioned, Lorelei fusses asking why the Judge why he made a big deal out
of her little joke and attempts to make him feel bad. After the small ordeal
she promises to tell the "whole truth and nothing but the truth". During the
cross examination, absoloutly everything that Lorelei says is a lie, no
matter how small the details. Making it impossible for Phoenix to choose one
of the comments in her testimony, even upon choosing different statements
and presenting contrary evidence, Lorelei turns her statement around to make
Phoenix into the liar. After several failed attempts Phoenix discovers that
the only way to confuse Lorelei into telling the truth is by picking a
statement and presenting evidence to make it look like her lie is in fact
the truth. Cuasing Edgeworth to become confused, he objects to Phoenix
creating the illusion of Lorelei's "truth". Making Lorelei switch her
statements once more and this time causing the girl uinknowningly to tell
the truth. After all the effort that Phoenix makes, Lorelei finally gives a
large truth pointing to the true murderer. But once she's asked to leave the

bubbly child was soon eliminated and a emotionless girl was put in her
place. As soon as she was 15, she asked to live on her own, and her parents,
who didn't care much for her, agreed.

Anything Agency' and pays Apollo and Trucy to find her cat, who they happen
to find in the Meraktis Clinic Garage.
When her cat was returned, she smiled which suprised Trucy and Apollo,
because all the time they spent together so far, she showed no emotion.
Finding out she lives on her own, Apollo is often bringing her meals because
he's afraid that she's not eating enough.
About a month later, Lola is accused of murdering a fellow classmate who was
last seen with her on a CCTV camera. A teacher who was apparently a witness
to her killing the victim was the actual murderer. And with Apollo's help
and his amazing lawyer skills he clears Lola's name of murder.

of her bubbly younger childhood that have been locked away for years. She
eats meals such as dinner and breakfast, often with Apollo and see's him as

Age: 25 (30 years after AJ)
Brief Physical Description: About 5’4”, Short
red hair with a shock of hair hanging over the middle of his forehead, amber
eyes, wears an azure sports jacket over a white dress shirt with a beige
vest and gold tie along with black slacks and brown loafers
Brief Personality Description: He lives by his motto “I take everything as a
50-50 chance, either it happens, or it doesn’t.” When not actively speaking
in the courtroom, he is seen constantly flipping a gold coin. There are
times when he could actually be described as a charming, intuitive person,
but Chance is known to hold grudges, the main one being against an attorney
named Lucy Verity for a case that occurred 10 years ago.
Connection to canon characters (if applicable): Apprentice to Klavier Gavin
Brief Background: Starting his prosecuting career at the age of 22, his

known as IL-3.
Entrant's Name: Ace Attorney Ali
Character name: Samisle Atmey (smile at me)
Age: 23 years old (GS4)
Occupation: Ace detective
Brief physical description: Samisle has jet black hair with a golden blonde
fringe, a typical genetic trait of her family. She is of average height and
has a light build. Her eyes are a chocolate brown melded with the black of
her pupils and shine like those of a cat, as though they can see things
invisible to the blind eye. She wears a magenta bow in her hair, scarlet
jewelled earrings and a grey trench coat over her magenta dress.
Brief Personality description: A proud person of sorts, Samisle isn’t loud
but she isn’t shy either. Despite seeming extremely cool, calm and
collected, Samisle is plagued by self doubt and an extreme fear of making
mistakes. She isn’t as friendly as most people, but she is trustworthy
beyond all doubt. More than anything though, she is determined to do
whatever her mind is set on, be that finding evidence, cracking a case or
holding an unforgiving grudge against someone.
Connections to canon characters: Samisle is Luke Atmey’s younger sister by
more than ten years. She is good friends with Ema Skye and they regularly
work on cases together. She knows of Detective Gumshoe, but doesn’t bother
talking to him much. Samisle bears an extreme grudge against Godot and also
Phoenix Wright for what they did to her brother.
Brief background: As a child, Samisle Atmey had no feelings nor desires to
become a detective. She never dreamt that one day she would solve mysteries
and collect evidence for trials. But that all changed when she was sixteen
years old. Her older brother Luke, whom she dearly loved became an “ace”
detective and was pursuing the infamous criminal Mask DeMask. She was so
proud of her brother’s efforts to uncover the secrets of this criminal, not
jealous, but happy for him. But that all changed when he was convicted
guilty of murder and when he self admitted to the theft of the artefacts.
Samisle’s idol had been destroyed and her family was in disgrace. She never
blamed her brother for his actions, despite them being wrong. She always
loved him. The one she shifted the blame to was the defense attorney who
insisted on his guilt, Phoenix Wright, and the prosecutor of the case, Godot,
for not doing more to get the defendant declared guilty. She knew though
that the criminal had to pay but she couldn’t help despising the pair. After
the trial, she knew something had to be done, something to bring back the
glory of the Atmey name. After graduating high school, she decided to take
over the work of her brother, to become the ace detective he never was.
This, she felt, would restore glory back to her family. She does it for him
each day, finds evidence she knows should be his to look at and say “Zvarri!”
(She doesn’t say it much herself though.) She is still a detective today,
doing her work solving crimes, being the ace detective Luke never was.
Entrant's Name: Ace Attorney Alex
Character's Name: Alexandra Candor
Age: 29 (a year after the AJ timeline)
Occupation: Interpol spy. She’s considered the “master of disguise”
Brief Physical Description: She seems very small for her age. She’s quick
and tiny, and she always has a smile of some sort on her face. She has
bright blue eyes with shimmering auburn hair. She bears a spy device in her
hair disguised as a hair barrette. It sends out holographic images that
contains updated information from Interpol. She tends to change her
appearance a lot, altering it with wigs, make-up, and even padding to
undergo a transformation for her job.
Brief Personality Description: She’s very bright and bubbly, and she treats
everything like a game when she’s working. She always keeps a level head and
stays calm mostly all the time. But she tends to be a little emotional, and
she often stresses a little and gets a bit too excited. She loves the Blue
Alex was born with a very special gift: Precise photographic memory. She can
remember anything to the last detail, even if she only glanced at it for
only a second. This comes in handy for her later jobs.
She has numerous alter egos that she developed during her spy career, but
she usually keeps in touch with two: Kaitlyn Rhodes and Izzy Able.
Kaitlyn Rhodes is the woman she uses to negotiate anything business or
serious. She acts cold and to-the-point when using this character, and she
often changes her name and her appearance (only very slightly) when dealing
with different organizations.
Izzy Able is modeled after Alex’s sixteen-year-old self, with a care-free,
dorky, and goofy attitude with a style to match. She tends to be somewhat
overactive and socially awkward, and Alex’s favorite when dealing with
Lily Summers is a woman she takes the name and appearance of after she is
accidentally murdered in a case Alex was working on. She will be further
explained in the background section.
Connection to canon characters (if applicable):
Edgeworth, Franziska von Karma, and Manfred von Karma gang up on her at age
sixteen to strip her of her prosecuting rights (though Edgeworth was
reluctant to do so.)
Later on, Gumshoe found her and discovered her photographic memory talents
and issued her in the force, where she worked as a detective alongside him.
Many of her cases in Interpol are headed by Shi-long Lang.
She met Phoenix before he started his defense attorney career and dated him
for a little while, but had to end the relationship abruptly because of her
job offering from Interpol. She later meets up with him after he gets his
attorney’s badge back a year after the AJ timeline as a suspect in a case,
disguised as a woman named Lily Summers.
Alex was about to take her Bar exams to become a prosecutor when Manfred von
Karma, along with his two students, Miles Edgeworth and Franziska von Karma,
came to overlook one of her classes. He noticed her not paying attention and
accused her, and with a cold look in her eye she told him she’d already
memorized the stuff. He only got more angry and yelled at her. Finally, she
snapped and called him a disgrace to all of law, and that he was not
perfect, that he was a cheater. This outraged him, and he ordered for her to
never step in court as an attorney. Alex laughed and said that it wasn’t
fair for her to be kicked out for stating her opinion. She and Manfred then
settled on an agreement, where she would have to state her opinion with
supporting facts in a very formal debate against his best pupil: Miles
Edgeworth. The stakes? If Miles won, Alex would have to leave the courtroom
forever. If Alex won… Miles suffered a tarnished reputation. Alex wasn’t
worried about the odds, though, for she knew she had enough facts to back up
The next day, the court was ready for the heated debate of the two rookies.
Topic: Perfect Prosecution. Pro: Miles Edgeworth. Con: Alexandra Candor. The
debate went on for hours, and the time had come where Alex could drop her
“Ladies and gentlemen,” Alex spoke in a clear, steady voice as she placed a
file on the judge’s desk, “I’m sure that you all remember that case ten
years ago, the last case of a renowned defense attorney who fought for an
innocent man’s freedom against a heartless man hungry for nothing other than
a perfect record. I surely remember it,” Alex bowed her head. “The defendant
who was pronounced ‘guilty’ thanks to the prosecution’s forged evidence was
my father.” The crowd began to whisper. “And I’m sure you remember it well,
too,” Alex pointed an accusing finger straight at Miles Edgeworth’s paling
face, “for it was your father who defended him!” Alex smirked coldly. “But,
even your father wasn’t great enough to stop the prosecution’s evil grasp.
All the prosecution suffered was a simple slap on the wrist for the forged
evidence that was found, and through some terrible miracle the defendant was
still found guilty. The accursed man who sent my father to jail?! Manfred
The crowd was now in favor of Alex, and her victory was prominent… yet she
still lost. She was booted from the law school, never to register again. She
heard rumors that Manfred had bribed the judge (the judge was the one used
for lower courts, such as money disputes, not the same, lovable one we all
know and love), but Alex didn’t care. She just wanted to move on and find
her true calling in life.
After the debate she met up with Edgeworth, and he admitted that he had
immense respect for her. She forgave him, but warned him about Manfred,
saying that she suspected that he was no good. It turned out that she was
Several months later she met Gumshoe as a witness where she expressed her
prosecuting, analyzing, and memorization skills. He had her register in the
police force, where she quickly made detective.
This is the age Alex meets Phoenix for the first time at trial as a witness.
She sat in at one of Mia’s trials where she defended an Ivy U. student who
was suspected of stealing historic artifacts from the University History
Museum and selling them for enormous profit. Phoenix overlooked it as well,
for he was about to experience his first case. Alex was thoroughly convinced
that the man Mia was defending was truly innocent, so she decided to conduct
a private investigation of her own. She managed to catch the Archeology
professor in the act, and she performed as a witness at the trial in the
defense’s case. The student was acquitted, and Mia thanked Alex
tremendously, and she later on introduced Alex to Phoenix, where they
proceeded to date. A few months later she received a call from Interpol that
offered her a huge but risky job as a high-tech spy. She knew that if she
accepted, she’d have to cut off from the world she knew and loved and enter
a completely new one, perhaps permanently. She discussed this with Phoenix
(without mentioning Interpol or the position she had been offered, of
course), and they both agreed that it would be better off if they went their
separate ways. Alex’s spirit somewhat crushed over this, for she was in love
with Phoenix, but she understood that it was going to be difficult to
maintain a relationship since Interpol had to erase her from existence, in a
matter of way.
She started a special smuggling case concerning Fallesia, a small South
American country. The smuggled item was the deadly Fallesian Coffee Bean, a
bean that smells, looks, and tastes like a typical coffee bean, but contains
an odorless and tasteless poison that slowly paralyzes the body and breaks
down the muscle tissues. Just one bean mixed in with normal coffee beans
could kill you. The poisonings were very common in business leaders and
Alex and Shifu began to investigate the matter a few months after the
incident started. The main suspect of the smuggling ring was a medical
practitioner named Sarah Hanner. She grew up in Fallesia and studied
medicine there, and she used to work for Interpol as a medical doctor.
Suddenly the poisonings started to occur among Interpol, killing a lot of
important people. A few days after the outbreak, the records room that
contained very detailed accounts of the agents’ past lives was broken into,
with all of the top agents’ files missing, one of them being Alex’s. Sarah
disappeared from Interpol after that.
She was spotted working at the Emblem Clinic a few weeks after the case
started under the name Sarah Williams. Alex went undercover as a nurse there
and began to investigate her. She befriended another fellow nurse, Lily
Summers. She had no relation to the smuggling case, though it was believed
she helped get her a job there.
One day, Alex confronted Sarah at the garage of the clinic, saying that she
had Interpol agents on their way to arrest her, though it was only a bluff.
Sarah saw through it and attacked her, destroying her favorite spy tool, the
barrette, and caused quite a racket. Lily Summers happened to hear the
struggle and went to inspect what was going on. Sarah saw Lily hiding behind
her car, ambushed her, and knocked her unconscious, and Alex ran to help
her. Sarah, on the other hand, was by a nearby car, its gasoline emptied
onto the garage floor and lit a fire, and Alex and the unconscious Lily were
soon engulfed in flames.
Alex managed to get a safe distance from the fire, but she realized too soon
that Lily’s body was no longer in her possession. Alex fainted from
breathing in too much smoke.
They took Alex to another hospital (for the one she worked at was currently
in chaos), and she went under the name of Lily Summers.
After she recovered, she went under one of her dramatic makeovers to make
herself resemble the woman Sarah had killed that day, yet she had no way of
contacting Interpol to tell of her plans. The next day she (as Lily Summers)
was arrested for the murder of the victim in the garage. The police believed
the victim was Alex Candor, but the body was so charred and destroyed that
they couldn’t get an identification, and a witness saw Alex enter the garage
before Lily (yet she didn’t see Sarah).
During this time, Phoenix was just finishing the last of his bar exams. He
received his brand new attorney’s badge, and after much celebrating with
Trucy and Apollo, he settled down to get ready for his first case. The
defendant? Lily Summers. The victim? Alexandra Candor. He instantly
recognized the name. He rushed down to the detention center to question Lily
When he arrived, Alex (disguised as Lily) instantly recognized Phoenix. She
knew it was dangerous to reveal her identity to him because Sarah was on the
loose, and she might try to hurt him. He questioned her, and, thanks to the
Magatama, thoroughly believed her story and agreed to defend her.
The next day, the trial went on as heated as ever with Gavin as prosecution
(he saw this as his chance to finally have a fair fight against Phoenix
without his brother’s interruption). Gavin produced t he security camera
footage from the garage that night. It showed three figures dressed in
nurses outfits, yet the faces of the figures were unidentifiable. Phoenix
said it was impossible to tell who attacked who, but as the video continued
to play he became shocked.
One figure was by a car, trying to open the car door, when another figure
came in and yelled at her. The figure by the car attacked the other, and
then the third figure runs in. The third figure ran over to a car and
released the gasoline. The video ends when the two other figures notice her
and run to confront her.
Gavin then presents the punch-card data. According to the data, Sarah
entered the garage first, followed by Alex, then by Lily. Meaning the third
figure that released the gasoline was Lily.
Alex (disguised as Lily) was quite shocked at the fact, saying she had no
idea what the video was portraying. She said she never even got close to
Phoenix contemplates that if this is true, then that means she isn’t the
figure that they thought she was.
A surprise witness comes to the trial, Shi-Long Lang, to testify about Alex
and who she was. His information helped Phoenix immensely.
The trial continues, and Phoenix figures out the defendant’s true identity.
He eventually figures out that the real Lily Summers was working along Sarah
Hanner, that they were both big shots in the smuggling case Alex was working
on. The police eventually find and arrest Sarah, and afterwards Alex left
Interpol to pursue her old job as a detective alongside her good friend,
Detective Gumshoe. She works often alongside Phoenix as a P.I., and their
relationship rekindles and blossoms into something more.
Entrant's Name: Hushicho
Character's Name: Niko (full name Nikodeimos)
Locke; the pun is that 'Nikodeimos' (also 'Nicodemus' and other variants)
has a certain 'dark magic' sound due to etymological elements, and 'Locke'
can be a shortening of 'warlock', due to his appearance and at times
Occupation: Spirit Medium, Researcher
Brief Physical Description: Tall, fiery-haired, and on the slight end of
average build, Niko Locke is nonetheless difficult to miss for his dramatic
dress sense and long hair. His eyes are green.
Brief Personality Description: Niko is as passionate as his hair is fiery,
but he is usually rather soft-spoken until he gets to know someone. He can
be self-doubting and meek, but sometimes things set him off and he becomes
very outspoken and strongly-worded. He can be harsh at times, but he
typically means well. Vegetarian and pacifistic, he is also heavily
influenced by the mysticism of India and Mesopotamia, which has been
incorporated into his appearance. Niko is trying to conduct research into
mysticism and channelling so that they can be used more efficiently to help
people. After finding out
about Godot's case, he worked hard to prove that a channeller is not in
control of himself or herself when possessed. He wants to use
channelling and mystical means to be sure that the innocent are protected.
He likes karaoke and sings well, although he almost
invariably chooses odd songs to sing, like women's enka.
He can be terribly flighty at times and sometimes
governed by his whims, which is how he got himself stuck channelling Mia Fey
for an extended period of time. He is, however, generally reliable and
honest to a fault.
Connection to canon characters (if applicable): Niko was defended by Phoenix
Wright during a crisis also involving Godot. He became friends with Maya
Fey, though they started out at odds due to different approaches to
mysticism. He actually was stuck being possessed by Mia for a length of
time, which played a part in bringing them all together. He has met Miles
Edgeworth and finds him appealing, but is frustrated by his unwillingness to
accept channelling. He is a friend of Marvin Grossberg. He is very fond of
Godot, although he at times wonders if all of the fondness is his own, or if
part is influenced by the extensive possession by Mia Fey.
Phoenix isn't certain what to make of him, and having Mia in technically a
male body (albeit with her certain features) confused and distressed him.
Maya was initially diametrically opposed to Niko, although they seemed to
have resolved most of their differences during the course of the case. Mia
likes Niko, though they've only really briefly met, apart from her
possessing his body. She liked the experience though. Marvin Grossberg is a
fond friend of Niko's, and the two get along well. Miles Edgeworth thinks
he's a flake. Godot at first thought Niko was just another flake too, but
through the ordeal of the trial and the extensive possession, he finds it
difficult to dismiss him outright and has become more friendly.
Brief Background: Niko Locke followed his childhood desires and travelled to
Mesopotamia to study mysticism there, becoming a capable mystic of his own.
It was sometime during his youth that he met Marvin Grossberg, and the two
kept in reasonable touch. Eventually Niko began to develop a study of
mysticism in use of crime solving and came across the case of former star
prosecutor Godot. Through his connections with Grossberg, he was able to
influence Godot's release in order to participate in a study that Niko felt
would shed greater light on the proceedings, as he felt they had been
mishandled. Godot was not entirely comfortable with the whole situation, but
at the same time it promised to help him in ways greater than the immediate
Unfortunately, during an impulsive channelling session, both Niko and Godot
were rendered unconscious, which trapped Mia Fey in Niko's body, complete
with cleavage. A murder had been committed, and the two were innocent, but
Mia was unable to vacate Niko's body and thus he was unable to contribute at
all until much later. They would need a lawyer, and of course Mia knew who
they would need to approach. Phoenix Wright was able to defend Niko and
prove that neither he nor Godot were responsible for the murder, although it
turned to his advantage only late in the day, with Mia finally enabled to
leave Niko's body in time for him to give a more complete testimony.
Undaunted by the attempt to use him and his research -- as well as his new
friend Godot, whom he was beginning to grow truly fond of -- as a cover for
murder, Niko continued on with his valuable work. His findings have helped
the authorities to understand and to approach things more reasonably, and he
has become a trusted consultant.
He has of late been seen around Godot's cafe doing fortunetelling, between
Character's Name: Sunny Nebels
Occupation: Weather Girl
Physical Description: If not her pervasive exuberance, the first and second
things most people notice about Sunny are her huge breasts. However, they
never seem to weigh her down; she is very animated, and even when idling she
bounces on her toes. Her hair is a wild cloud of brilliant platinum, fluffed
out in every direction like her favorite dandelions, and she loves to wear
flowers in her hair. Even when Sunny's million-dollar grin doesn't adorn her
face, there is a content or mischievous look in her bright blue eyes. She
always dresses in green, her favorite color.
Personality Description: If not her overbearing bust, the first thing most
people notice about Sunny is her never-ending enthusiasm. Although
dim-witted, her imagination and optimism let her always see the bright side
of things. Her attention span is short, and the smallest things can capture
her attention; in conversation she often excitedly rambles on about anything
that comes to mind. Fun-loving and active, she has the tendency to smother
people with her energy (among other things), and she's always trying to make
new friends. Sunny loves to eat heaping scoops of ice cream, and keeps her
favorite ice cream scoop on hand.
Sunny is a less-than-helpful witness in cases that happen to involve her,
though her knack for being fascinated by the tiniest details can
occasionally reveal clues.
Connection to Canon: Sunny's position as the local weather girl has earned
her the dubious attention of a certain Dr. Turner Grey. She proudly keeps
all of the angry letters he sends to her, as they constitute a good portion
of her fan-mail.
Background: Her family owns the local news channel where she works, much to
the chagrin of her professional coworkers, but no one dares raise an
objection due to her executive relations. When Turner Grey was murdered in
Kurain Village, the other broadcast news staff had to explain to her that
Dr. Grey wouldn't be sending her any more fan-mail. She commemorated his
passing with a big bowl of strawberry ice cream.
Character's Name: Cerulean Foster /
Name meaning: Cerulean is a shade of green (probably named because of his
eye color) and Foster is a common English family name.
Likewise, Midori means green and is a common name and Tanaka is a common
Age: 23 (GS1)
Occupation: Police Officer
Brief Physical Description: Brown hair, Long in the front and a lot shorter
and messy in the back. Green eyes, specifically Cerulean. Medium height
around 170 cm, physically a little to thin for his age which causes him to
be extremely sensitive to cold temperatures. He usually is seen with a scarf
around his neck or around his waist. Usually seen wearing a jacket and
almost never seen in public wearing short sleeves except in summer.
Brief Personality Description: Cerulean is an easy-going person, he is very
gullible which causes some of his colleagues often tricking him. His opinion
is easily influenced by another person and this often causes problems in his
job. As he never actually had any real girlfriend, he is quite sensitive to
the subject if mentioned.
Connection to canon characters (if applicable): Works under Gumshoe. Friend
of Maggey. Acquaintances of Edgeworth, Franziska, Phoenix and Maya. Ever be
a witness in one of Phoenix’s case.
Since a kid, he is always sensitive to the cold due to him being quite
underweight. He is born in a poor but close family in the countryside and
still keeps strong ties with them. He always ties a scarf around his waist
just in case the weather becomes cold whereby he can directly use the scarf.
His work uniform is torn because of an unfortunate incident in which a stray
cat started attacking his jacket and Cerulean’s attempt to pull it away
results it to be torn. He tried to retrieve the cloth piece but the cat is
nowhere to be found. As he works under Gumshoe, his salary is even LOWER
than Gumshoe’s so he still needs to save his money until this day to afford
to fix his uniform. Because the wind causes his hand on the torn part to be
cold, he uses a glove to cover it.
Cerulean works under Gumshoe for quite a long time. He ever works with
Maggey when she works under Gumshoe too which causes Gumshoe to ask him a
lot of information about her. He is now secretly in jealousy for Gumshoe as
now Gumshoe and Maggey have such a nice relationship while he is still
He is extremely sensitive to the topic of girlfriends as he never had one
before. Because of this, he ever prevented Phoenix from entering the crime
scene only because Pearl convinces him that Phoenix and Maya are “Special
Someones” Until Gumshoe managed to convince him that both of them are NOT
together, Cerulean still insist that both Phoenix and Maya are not allowed
to see the crime scene and their love is forbidden. Phoenix also promised
him that he will introduce Cerulean to one of his friend which is
professional about the ladies (Larry) to make Cerulean allows them to see
the crime scene.
One time, he ever becomes a witness in one of Phoenix’s case whereby the
murderer commits another murder in the same crime scene at the time where
Cerulean guards it. The fact that he wears gloves only in on his right hand
is quite important in the case as there are no fingerprints on the murder
weapon. Later in the trial, he is proven to be totally left-handed and can’t
handle a weapon properly in his right hand and is cleared of all suspicions.
Entrant's Name: Liu Bei
Character's Name: Ruth Fey
Brief Physical Description: Ruth Fey is a rather small person, who is mere
143 centimetres tall. She has light grey hair and grey eyes and her face
shows the bitter memories she made in life. She wears the special clothes of
the family advisor.
Brief Personality Description: She is a strong-willed person, who uses any
means necessary to achieve her goals. However, the one and only thing she
wants, is to assure the safety of her family. She distrust any person
outside of the Kurain village and has little patience with outsiders. The
only outsiders she somehow tolerates are those who ask for her service as a
medium. But even they can feel the hostile gaze, which the old woman throw
The most members of the Fey family admires her dedication for her family,
but at the same time they believe that it makes her also very unpredictable
in her action. They fear that Ruth is an old paranoid woman, who is slightly
crazy. The current master Maya Fey thinks that Ruth's rough behavior towards
strangers is just her way to hide the fact, that she is in reality afraid of
the people outside the village.
Connection to canon characters (if applicable): The current honorable family
advisor of the Fey family and therefore the advisor of Maya Fey.
Brief Background: Ruth Fey was born as an orphan without any family and was
raised in an orphanage. Her life in the orphanage was the most horrible
experience in her whole life and the reason why she could never trust anyone
outside the family anymore. It was an orphanage where the children were
abused and where they led a miserable life. There was a time in the
orphanage when Ruth would just hide in her room, being afraid of every noise
that could indicate the coming of an adult.
At the age of 14
she found out that she was able to communicate with dead people and summon
them with her body. However, the very first person, she summoned was a
victim of the orphanage. Upon hearing about the tragic death of the ghost
her fears just increased.
After the discover of her ability,
she decided to use the skills and knowledge of the dead to flee from the
orphanage and she succeeded.
Later she fell into the hands of a shady organization , which used her
ability to their advantages.
Her life under miserable
conditions continued two years, until a member of the Fey family, called
Lily Fey, found her during one of Ruth's assignments. Lily Fey noticed
Ruth's origin and decided to take her to the Fey family. With the protection
of the Fey family Ruth was finally able to leave the organization and her
miserable life in the world outside of the village.
she experienced the warmth and love of a family, who took care of her. To
return the gifts the family has given her, she decided to dedicate her life
for the sake of the family. She soon became a great medium, who holds many
political relationships and great influence. Her love and devotion for the
family made her the perfect candidate as the family advisor, whose task is
it to remind the master of her obligation to the family.
Fey family however noticed, that her dedication for the family was sometimes
too strong. Her emotional scar remained, so that from her point of view
every outsider was a potential enemy of the family. She used her
relationships with underground organizations (although she hates them) to
crush anyone, who she deemed to be a danger. The older she became the more
radical became her methods and the family began to think of her as a crazy
But no one dares to say so, because they were afraid
they could be considered as a danger themselves.
Entrant's Name: Harusame San
Character's Name: Avalon de Rais
Brief Physical Description: Shoulder-length white-blonde hair, pale skin,
and red eyes makes Avalon seem almost albino. Add a skull and a sickly sweet
smile and you’ve got Avalon. Standing at 5’5” and weighing 103 lbs, Avalon
is thin, almost disturbingly so. She always keeps a smile on her face, well,
until she’s caught in a lie. When Avalon gets nervous, she pulls her arms
back, bits her lip, and covers her face, but as soon as she’s regained her
composure, she’s back to normal. On her back, she has the phrase “Memento
Mori” (a reminder of death) tattooed across her shoulder blades in an
elegant, gothic font, and across her chest she has the phrase “Dum vivimus,
vivamus” (Let us live while we live) in similar writing.
Brief Personality Description: Most people would describe her as a bit
“off”. Obsessed with death, violence, and history, she has a reputation
among the other prosecutors for her uncanny, maverick courtroom ways. Most
of the time, she carries around and talks to a skull she calls “Yorick”,
whom she asks advice from, and is predicts the outcome of events using her
tarot cards. She’s ever-smiling and full of strange factoids in which she
will randomly sputter out, even at the expense of the court’s time. She
overall a nice person, but issue can arise when anyone accuses her of lying.
However, while she does not lie, per se, she will leave key details out on
purpose. Her reason for doing everything is the amusement she gains watching
others try to figure things out. What one would find out from reading her
thoughts is that she is not as innocent—or sweet or naïve or stupid—as she
Connection to canon characters (if applicable): Has worked with Phoenix,
Edgeworth, the von Karma family, Damon Gant, Gumshoe, etc.
Brief Background: Avalon was born into a small farm-family, with Ma, Pa, and
Susanne, her sister. Everything seemed fine in the family until one day,
when Avalon was six, locals began disappearing. The police questioned Ma and
Pa, but left. One night not long after, Avalon heard a noise in the
basement. She crept down the stairs, investigating. The door was ajar, and
she quietly peaked inside. What she saw was her father killing the owner of
their rival farm. Frightened, Avalon ran upstairs and hid, never saying a
word. Eventually, the murders stopped, the police arrested a suspect, and he
was convicted. Ma and Pa went on like nothing had ever happened. Avalon
became quite obsessed with the ideas of life and death, and eventually
decided to become a prosecutor. Only a few years after gaining a job at the
prosecutor’s office, Avalon’s understudy was gruesomely murdered. The police
charged Avalon with the crime, and not without cause. She asked Phoenix to
defend her, and he did. Eventually, after a long, grueling (day long) trial,
Avalon was declared innocent. Nowadays, she still works as a prosecutor.
Entrant's Name: Koton
Character's Name: French name: Léo Part (“Leo leaves”, pun on “leopard”) /
English name: Leo Pard / Japanese name: Saru (“leave”, NOT “monkey” it’s not
written with the same kanji) Hyou (“leopard”)
Age: 80 years old (Gyakuten Kenji timeline)
Occupation: Retired policeman
Brief Physical Description: At
first glance on him, you can say “oh my, he’s so old!” but it’s not the main
point. Léo is as short as he’s plump, resulting of his love for food and his
laziness. His bouncing belly can testify about that. Plus, there are more
wrinkles than hair on his round head, modeled by merciless hands of time and
genetics. His eyes are barely opened most of the time, like he’s always
sleepy (and he is). Léo never goes out without his sardines suspenders,
combined with a simple shirt and loose pants. Believe me or not but he
always wears sandals with socks. You can always find him with a plastic bag
filled with sardines cans, for him and kitties.
Personality Description: Even if we don’t see clearly his qualities, his
flaws are obvious. Léo acts like a cat: lunatic, sleeping a lot, motivated
by food (and he’s often hungry)... Lunatic means that he can be soft-spoken
and also short-tempered, even for silly things. While getting berserk,
compare Léo as a barbarian. He likes teasing his cat Coton (Cotton/Momen,
it’s a female) but always get bitten or scratched by her. Léo is slow at
understanding, lazy and stupid, annoying for others, especially for Coton
but she knows that his owner is a good old man, caring for cats.
Connection to canon characters (if applicable): None, although Léo used to
work in the same precint as Gumshoe without meeting themselves
Brief Background: Actually, Léo wasn’t vowed to serve justice and order as a
great policeman or a top-notch attorney. He entered the police to stay in an
office so it’s easier for him to become freely a slowpoke between piles of
papers and people’s problems. His fondness for cats brought him to take care
of stray cats or lost ones in his office, there’s no day without a Léo
arriving in the precint with a kitty in his arms. This job allowed him to
help people and little furry creatures. Even if he likes cats, Léo never had
one as his sidekick. One day, his cousin told him that his cat had kittens
but couldn’t keep them all, so he gave a creamy furry kitten to Léo. Because
this kitten loves cotton blankets, her owner named this kitty Coton. She can
be sweet but sometimes harsh when Léo annoys her or does silly things like
running after his detached suspensions. Coton was always with her owner at
work and looking after him with her own way.
Now, Léo is
retired but still brings stray cats at the precint, Coton at his side.

Entrant's Name: Shibataea
Character's Name: Brett Anbuhta
Occupation: Luxury Train Conductor
Brief Physical Description: Superficially, Brett
appears to be a young, effeminate male: tall, thin, brown-haired, and
green-eyed, perpetually wearing a conductor’s uniform. Well-dressed and
well-groomed, Brett is in fact a very gender-ambiguous girl blessed – or
cursed – with an androgynous name. Nevertheless, Brett keeps the hat on,
sports a pair of white gloves, and never loses his (her) professional air.
Brief Personality Description: Fiercely dedicated
to preserving the prosperity of the train to the point of slight obsession,
Brett seems to be the perfect conductor. The witness is always level-headed,
never gets angry at guests, and takes on tasks that aren’t exactly in the
job description (such as caring for children or taking care of personal
business between passengers).
As a witness, Brett is quite friendly and gives a highly factual and
seemingly impermeable testimony, but slowly becomes dazed, quiet, and shy as
the cross-examination goes on. In contrast to this constant doubt, when
called upon as a witness for the second time, the conductor is cold and
indifferent – almost spiteful.
Connection to canon characters (if applicable):
Brief Background: To
put it simply, Brett’s father owns the train; he trusts no other but his
child to do a good job. When a passenger is killed and the train’s chef
accused of the murder, Brett is called up to be the prosecution’s witness.
Not that Brett gives a reliable testimony; the young conductor claims to
have seen the victim being killed in the bathroom, though all the statements
given are contradictory to the facts – “the shower in the bathroom is to the
left of the entrance, the victim could not have been slumped against a glass
screen that wasn’t there, and there is no mirror in the men’s bathroom!”
The men’s bathroom, yes, but it isn’t until Apollo
shouts this in the heat of cross-examination that Brett reveals that ‘he’ is
in fact a ‘she’ and that the murder took place in the women’s bathroom,
turning the case completely on its head. (And is then promptly confused all
over again by the issue of clarifying her own gender, muttering something
about how she’s not quite sure herself and doesn’t really know the
difference, and ends by saying, “It was in the women’s bathroom, and that’s
Brett is later
called upon to testify about a second crime connected to the current case -
her mother’s murder three years ago which was unresolved because of a lack
of evidence – and is almost completely unwilling to talk about it, but is
eventually coaxed into giving her testimony. This eventually reveals that a
passenger on the train had the facilities to kill the victim, and was also
the one who killed her mother.
Brett Anbuhta does indeed love bread and butter.
Character's Name: Madison Themis
Age: 21, although she is often mistaken for a teenager
Occupation: Paralegal Assistant (Aide) to Winston Payne, eventually
Brief Physical Description: Short, cute and blonde, Themis wears lots of
green and stands slightly pigeon-toed.
Brief Personality Description: Bubbly and cheerful and often childish,
Themis is a very friendly prosecutor. She's thrilled about everything around
her, especially her mentor (and hero) Winston Payne.
Yet Themis seems to ooze ditziness. Her ignorance of even the most basic
court procedures leaves Apollo (And everyone else) mystified as to how she
passed law school--let alone the Bar Exam.
But as if to compensate for this lack of knowledge, Themis possesses great
curiosity. As Payne's Aide she clogs the proceedings with numerous questions
ranging from the most pertinent to the very random and requiring Apollo to
explain --Again-- how to do his job.
As a prosecutor, she seems to radiate the incompetency befitting a student
of Winston Payne. Even when her notes are impeccably organized, she spends
her time going down wrong paths and grasping at straws. As if that was not
enough, Themis never objects to anything, but only asks questions of the
witness and defense.
Apollo first gets annoyed at having to baby his opponent so... but then he
begins to notice that her "Innocent questions" start to poke big holes in
Connection to canon characters (if applicable): She works in the (AJ
Timeline) Prosecutor’s Office. Her mentor is Winston Payne, whom she treats
as if he’s a prosecuting god—much to everyone else’s confusion.
She also stayed at the same orphanage as Apollo briefly, when she was seven.
Neither of them remembers each other. (They were not on the best terms,)
Brief Background: When Madison was six years old, her parents were murdered
in a robbery-gone-wrong. Winston Payne successfully prosecuted the case as
"The Rookie Killer" putting the robber behind bars.
After the case ended, leaving Madison without any living relatives. She was
placed in the San Baudelio Orphanage where she met Apollo (A long time
resident). Only seven months later, she was adopted by Ajax and Minerva
Themis. Who signed as legal council to the adoption? Why, Winston Payne of
course. After the newly Madison Themis found out, she decided to find a way
to thank him some day.
Fourteen years later, fresh out of law school, Themis finds Payne a
downtrodden laughing-stock of the office. After repeatedly applying to be
Payne's Paralegal Aide Themis decides that she has to restore his pride as a
prosecutor the only way she knows how: by becoming the best there is as his
Winston Payne, of course, has no idea who she is.
Entrant's Name: Julie
Character's Name: Thyme Zupp
Age: 27 (During Ace Investigations)
State of Origin: Principality of
None (Formally stayed in Borginia)
Occupation: Bio Chemist
Martial status: Widower
Hobbies: Racing (MotoGP, SBK)
Brief Physical Description: A tall and slender man in his late twenties that
hides behind many layers. A pair of prescription sunglasses sit behind a
thicker pair of lab technician goggles, keeping both harmful chemicals out
of his eyes alongside with adding another glaze over blue-green eyes. A
racing outfit sits underneath a long tan coat, which he rarely removes. His
hands, clothed in fingerless gloves, often tug on a bottle in his left
pocket or the racing borginian pin settled onto his lapel.
Brief Personality Description: Vague, Secretive,
guarded. Thyme is seen as a man who is hard to approach in a casual setting.
He skips around topics and, unless the conversation is brought down to
‘business’, he hardly opens up. Science and racing seem to be his only
points of interest.
Connection to canon characters (if applicable): Father to Machi Tobaye,
associate to Quercus Alba.
Thyme was born to a well-to-do Codopian family. His early interests lay in
Italian motorcycle racing and at a young age he traveled around much of
Eastern Europe through his involvement in a number of Moto GP and SBK racing
events. However, his parents felt he needed a career and not just a hobby.
They enrolled him in one of the Europe's finest colleges to study science.
He took immediately to biochemistry, enjoying it nearly as much as racing,
and became well known for his discoveries while in school. A fellow Codopian
professor sought out Thyme to assist him on his research on the restorative
properties of the Borginian cocoon during his final years of schooling.
After the untimely and suspicious demise of his professor, Thyme inhereted
all the work they had done together.
Mere months after Thyme had graduated, Cohdopia collapsed into two separate
nations, Babahl and Allebahst, both of which were interested in Thyme’s
theories. Overwhelmed by the advancements from both sides, he fled to
Borginia and claimed asylum. There he returned to his first love, racing,
joining the Borginian team through which he met his second love and future
wife. The accomplished flautist was the daughter of one the team's sponsors
and wealthy Borginian aristocrat. They started dating a few months after
meeting and were engaged within the year. She encouraged him to return to
his research during the off season and asked her father for funding. He
tentatively agreed to help his son-in-law. It was during those months that
he unlocked the secret to the curative properties of the cocoon from which
he could produce a potent treatment. However, his discovery also revealed
deadly properties hidden within the cocoon's spindly threads: it was capable
of producing a key element that would eventually be refined into atroquinine.
Thyme shared this information with his wife while she had a surprise of her
own. They would soon be a family as she was pregnant with a son. They
decided it would be best to keep his new discoveries from the Borginian
government until his son was born, after which he would hand over his
research and devote his entire time to his family. Not a week after the
birth of their son, he returned home after a race to find his lab ransacked
and parts of his notes for both formulas missing. Luckily, he had the
foresight to hide important notes in a special compartment within the lab.
Realizing the danger that his new family was in, he had them quickly pack up
their things and flee for the Borginian border. However, during the process
his wife mishandled vials of the poison and fell into a coma. He turned to
the only person he could trust, his wife's father. Enraged by his
son-in-laws carelessness, the wealthy aristocrat had the researcher jailed
and established laws to make sale of the cocoon illegal.
While in jail, Thyme was approached by a former Cohdopia member who
represented a smuggling operation which wanted to ‘use’ Thyme’s forumula to
sell on black market. If he cooperated, they would promise him free access
to a laboratory where he could work on a cure for his wife in return.Thyme
would agree to the deal but with one amendment. Knowing his wife may never
recover from her state, Thyme made arrangements to save his son's life and
hide him away by any means necessary. He sent the child to an orphanage and
later found a surrogate mother to adopt the child. Though to this day,
cocoons are still exported, and poison is still created, something that
Thyme regrets immensely.
