A Turnabout Of Sorts
2nd Place and Croik's Choice!
Entrant's Name: Kayla
Character's Name: Wednesday Adelaide
Age: 23 (Apollo arc)
Brief Physical Description: Honey blond hair, light brown eyes, fair complexion, 5’4”, petite. Her outfit constantly changes, sometimes to the point of coming to court in one outfit and showing up at the crime scene the same day in a completely different outfit. She wouldn’t be caught dead in something as frumpy as a T-shirt and sneakers, and she rarely wears pants of any sort. Her typical court outfit, though, is usually a blouse and pencil skirt with heels (though of course you can’t see her feet behind the bench). Her hair is always pulled back in some way, and her bangs are thick and cover her forehead and eyebrows completely.
Brief Personality Description: She is very spoiled, and often snobbish. She speaks her mind when she feels appropriate, and is sometimes blunt to the point of rude. She is competitive by nature, and strives to be the best in all of her endeavors. She is known for her hard-working, ambitious disposition, and detests laziness and stagnancy of any sort. She is rather even-tempered, and can usually stay cool under pressure. She is always on the go, and she loves to get out and investigate crime scenes herself rather than let the police do all of the work. She’s an avid Franziska von Karma fangirl, and often grapples over the conflicting creeds of her idol and her teacher.
Her personality makes it hard for her to make friends, and has had few in her life.
Connection to canon characters (if applicable):
Phoenix Wright: He defended her when she was
accused of murdering her friend. She has since lost respect for him after he
lost his badge.
She strongly questions his fashion sense, and she hates his cravat. Similarly, he gets annoyed when she puts her appearance first over her work.
Ema Skye: They’ve met once or twice in passing while she worked for Edgeworth. Their relationship is rough at best. Ema is jealous that she worked with Edgeworth for those seven years, and Wednesday knows it. They are cordial to each other’s face, but sometimes they talk trash behind each other’s back. (“Can you believe her? She thinks she’s hot stuff because she’s Mr. Edgeworth prodigy. *MUNCH MUNCH*” “Ugh, that detective is so sloppy sometimes. Those capris are so…shoddy!”) However, they do share the common bond of their similar feelings toward Klavier.
Klavier Gavin: Wednesday absolutely, positively, cannot stand him and avoids working with him at all costs. He’s a lazy, selfish, complacent fop of a man in her opinion. Her prejudice against him exceeds his personality, as he became a prosecutor at 17 (she became one at 22) and he is the brother of Kristoph (which probably needs no explanation).
Brief Background: She comes from a very (inexplicably) rich family. Her mother was a successful fashion designer, her father a very well-known detective. Due to unknown circumstances, her father was forced to take early retirement, and so he took his family to Europe. Wednesday lived through most of her childhood moving from country to country wherever her father owned homes (of which he had many), including America, Switzerland, Germany, and Austria, as well as the Republic of Borginia and the Principality of Cohdopia. She discovered that she inherited not her mother’s creativity but her father’s sense of justice, and attended vocational school in Germany, training to become a lawyer. When she was 16, she decided to go to America to finish school and take the bar exam. However, she was swept up in the murder of her friend, and was even accused of the murder herself. With Phoenix Wright as her representation, she was proven innocent.
Unfortunately for her, even though she was proven to be innocent her school still expelled her. She had to start the year over, and she was unable to take the bar exam when she had originally planned.
With nowhere else to go (without returning home), she implored Edgeworth to let her have a job as his secretary (all the while secretly hoping to get close to Franziska). He refused at first, of course, but she persisted, showing up at his office every afternoon after school. After about two weeks, he pensively gave her a job. She worked for him as his secretary part-time while she was in school and full-time when she was out. She didn’t take the bar exam until just before AJ.
Other: She has an odd prejudice against defense attorneys, as she knows them to be murderous and corrupt (Phoenix, Kristoph, Calisto). Conversely, she has a deluded image of prosecutors based off of her interactions with Edgeworth and Franziska and never acknowledges the fact that prosecutors can be just as corrupt as anyone (Godot, Jacques, Manfred).
Her father was part of Alba’s organization, but he quit when he thought he was about to be found out. Since he was no longer an active member of the smuggling ring, his name never came up in Edgeworth’s investigations (assuming that is what Edgeworth was doing during the seven years between AAI and AJ), and since he quit before Wednesday was born, she knows nothing about it.
