Character's Name: Frank Lee

Age: 32 (Apollo Justice arc)

Occupation: Detective in the Homicide Department

Brief Physical Description: Frank is 5’10 and has dark teal hair. He is rather sloppy and if he had ever met Franziska von Karma she would most likely dub him “Scruffy II.” He usually doesn’t take much care of his appearance, if his fohawk is any evidence; he is usually too lazy to even take the effort to spike it up. He also despises sleeves, so he always pushes them up. If he can't then he just rips them off.

Brief Personality Description: He is a total goof. He loves to make people laugh, but is not funny at all. True to his name, he is extremely frank. He is considered tactless, but not out of malice: he is just oblivious that his blunt truths hurt. Though, he is quite silly, he is also takes his work very seriously. He hates crime and has a great instinct to protect.

Connection to canon characters (if applicable): Childhood friend of Apollo Justice. Studied under Tyrell Badd for a short time.

Brief Background: Frank grew up in the same orphanage of Apollo. Back then, Frank was considered the toughest kid in the orphanage and bullied all the other children, especially Apollo.

Later on, Frank was became involved in a gang related crime and was the main suspect. He believed that he was going to be sent to prison for sure, but Apollo told him that he believed that he was innocent, that he knew Frank could never kill anyone. He told him he wanted to grow up to be a defense attorney. Frank deeply moved by the boy’s faith in him and vowed to someone who could benefit society as well.

By the time Frank’s trial was over, Apollo had already been adopted and moved out of the orphanage. Frank decided to become a detective so that one day he and Apollo could meet again, and he could thank him for believing in him.

Frank had always wanted a family to call his own, but he was never adopted. He has always held on to the hope that one day he will meet his biological parents.

Brief Physical Description: Has brown eyes and black hair and goatee flecked with silver. Wears a cream colored suit and fedora lined with red and gold silk. Smokes a mahogany pipe.

Brief Personality Description: Xyris is arrogant and values fortune and wealth above anything else. He is a smooth talker and can usually manipulate others into doing his bidding. In fact, he can be quite dangerous. If you get in the way of his plans, he'll find your weakness and use it to blackmail you. He's not afraid of committing murder either. Despite all this, he presents himself neatly and professionally to gain the trust of others.

Connection to canon characters (if applicable): Xyris is from Allebahst and works under Quercus Alba. He is also connected to Ernest Amano, having worked to protect him in return for a large sum of money.

Brief Background: Xyris was born in Cohdopia before it split into two countries. When this happened, he was on the Allebahst side. Both of his parents had jobs in the Cohdopian government, which was how he met Quercus Alba. Alba knew Xyris was a clever individual and took him under his wing.

In reality, Xyris is not actually a real detective, but uses it as his cover. He is really one of the members of Alba's criminal organization. His job is to use his position and his influence to gain access to crime scenes and tamper or remove evidence that may incriminate Alba and the rest of the crime ring. In his suit is a hidden knife that he has used more than once to take care of people who get to close to discovering the truth.

Name Origin: Xyris Andina is the scientific name of a yellow flower that grows in the mountains of South America.

Croik's Choice!
Entrant's Name: Dice

Character's Name: Grace Liberty

Age: 22

Occupation: Defense Attorney

Brief Physical Description: Grace is somewhat tomboyish and informal, but a natural beauty. She wears a three-quarter length shirt, and in a somewhat uncaring manner (her sleeves aren’t rolled up, she just let’s them fall). Despite her “eye-candy” appearance, she is more focused on the matter’s at hand, and would rather just put her hair up in a ponytail instead of any sort of other hair-do. Otherwise, she wears a jewel-colour sapphire shirt, a skirt to the knees, and shoes that always match the outfit (despite her tomboy attitude, she adores a good pair of shoes!). She wears glasses – just some of the time, and usually when she’s “feeling smart” (say, after a brilliant deduction of sorts).

She enjoys sticking her tongue out too; whether thinking, or if it is in spite of someone annoying her.

Otherwise, Grace’s facial appearance is somewhat mischievous. Her eyes are accented, and she is usually seen smirking, plotting, or simply thinking. Grace’s dark blue eyes are usually gazing skyward (rather, towards her brain, or her “thinking mind!!”) as she begins to think her problems through. Otherwise, her eyes are usually dead-centered on whomever is on trial.

Brief Personality Description: Grace is a smart, smart girl, and has little patience for anyone she feels isn’t (letting her right-hand man take care of suspect questioning [think a male-version of Mia/Trucy/Kay]).

Grace is a smart-aleck; she is quick on her toes, and amazing in her line of work. She can put people down before they even know what’s happened. She has an odd, unnatural talent for getting her glasses on astonishingly fast (as seen in the GIF!).

She hates being wrong, and if she is caught off-guard in a case, she will be quick to double-time her work efforts; thinking fast and attacking back with something. She won’t be ashamed to rub-in small victories in someone’s face – a fact that irritates the judge.

Despite her youth and superior intelligence; she lacks common-sense and street smarts. Because of this, she hates being seen as stupid; and will try to fire back somehow (whether with tactful wit, or retaliate in some form of mockery in order to red herring the actual problem).

Grace is not *only* wit and pride; as she can show a soft spot. As a defense attorney; she genuinely does fight for the sake of justice, and she bears sympathy for those who genuinely deserve it.

The Ace Attorney universe enjoys creating a crafty name, and “Grace Liberty” dances on a line between a bad pun and a possible, real-life name.

Grace is meant to be somewhat ironic as she is rather somewhat ungraceful. While she has a smart head, she typically avoids proper mannerisms and is much more to the point.

Liberty takes on her more nonchalant practice of law. She, as stated in her name, fights for ‘freedom’ and all that whatnot as well.

Connection to canon characters (if applicable): Grace studied along Apollo, they were in the same class and get along. After graduating, they went their separate ways (perhaps chance future encounters?!)

She admires Miles Edgeworth for his ability to simply and accurately “deduct”. She hopes to one day be against him in court, in order to test herself.

Brief Background: Grace’s father is a renowned surgeon, and her mother is a physicist for a prolific company. Grace has had a fairly strict upbringing even despite relatively absent parents. It is also likely that her parents’ impressive career positions are what drove her into becoming an attorney – another sort of challenge. While Grace enjoys the difficulty of her job, she also occasionally lacks the heart for her work; giving her a mischievous and sarcastic touch.

Grace's aide in her office is an old friend of hers. He is nothing like her; but yet it is this very fact that seems to make these two effective and good at shooting back complaints, contradictions, and differences in opinion.


Entrant's Name: Kuroibara

Character's Name: Joi

Age: 35

Occupation: Prosecutor

Brief Physical Description: Only 5’1”. While her hair appears light brown, it’s actually a mix of a whole bunch of different colors. She wears glasses and is blind without them. A piece of her hair is always in front of her face, and she’ll occasionally attempt to blow it away (like when she’s near defeat)

Brief Personality Description: Usually cheerful and friendly, but when she’s angry, she is very scary. Loves to eat, but never gets any larger. She’s always got an unidentified manga book with her, and she even reads it in court (which annoys the Judge.)

Connection to canon characters (if applicable):
Edgeworth: She’s met him a few times, and he helped her get started as a prosecutor.

Brief Background: She began prosecuting at the age of 23. She hasn’t lost a single case in her career, but she’s had a lot of close calls. Her biggest case was one where a man was murdered in his own car, and no one could find the killer, until a suspect arose. She fought her hardest in that case, and just barely got by with a guilty verdict. At that time, she had Edgeworth working with her, and were it not for him, she would have lost. She has three cats, and apparently has a younger brother who is also a prosecutor.

She was placed in the temporary custody of rookie detective Dick Gumshoe until a permanant home could be found for her. However, he quickly grew attached to her, and chose to adopt her himself.

Entrant's Name: PandaPrinzessin

Character's Name: Vanessa Cardui (name origin: in a similar fashion to Colias Palaeno, Vanessa Cardui is the Latin name of the Painted Lady butterfly)

Age: 20

Occupation: Cohpi Dancer

Brief Physical Description: Vanessa is a curvy, dark-haired young woman who always wears the traditional red and black dress of the cohpi dancer, complete with red comb in her hair- although she appears not to realise that her outfit is quite archaic, even in Cohdopia. She's never without her fan which she uses more as a communication device than she does as a dance prop.

Brief Personality Description: She's very light-hearted and outgoing and will flirt with practically anything that moves. Where dance is concerned, however, Vanessa is very serious- point out the similarity of cohpi dancing to flamenco and prepare to face her wrath- for her, it comes before anything else. Although she's naturally a very social person, she's suspicious of strangers and often pretends not to speak English when approached by visitors to the Embassy- instead replying in her near-unintelligible Cohdopian border dialect. Actually when she speaks Cohdopian, even most native speakers can't understand her...

Connection to canon characters (if applicable): Dated Akbey Hicks for four years up until his death and knows Colias Palaeno well, as he was the one to offer her a job at the Embassy. She was a defendant of Phoenix and Edgeworth prosecuted her case.

Brief Background: Vanessa trained as a dancer from a very young age, specialising in Cohdopia's traditional discipline of cohpi and was quite well-known by the time she reached her teens. When the country split, sixteen-year old Vanessa fled over the border into Borginia, where she met and began dating Akbey Hicks. Shortly after, she was offered a place in the former Cohdopian Embassy over in the US, where she has worked for several years, mainly dancing in Embassy events. Aged twenty, she was accused of killing an Interpol executive who was visiting the Embassy on diplomatic business- her alleged motive being that the woman she “killed” had been the one to send Agent Hicks on his final mission. However, when questioned, it was discovered that Vanessa had no idea he had died- she thought he had just left her, thus she had no motive and Phoenix managed to gather enough evidence to prove her innocence. After the re-unification of Cohdopia, Vanessa resolved to return to her homeland and take up professional dancing again.

Entrant's Name: Mio

Character's Name: Jap: Mio Nakamura/ Eng: Mio Cross

Age: 19 (AA: PW), 20 (JFA), 21 (T&T), 22 (AAI), 28 (AJ)

Occupation: Detective

Brief Physical Description: Long brown hair and dark green eyes. Has a black tattoo of an iris on her left arm.

Brief Personality Description: Mio is generally kind, polite and outgoing. But she can be a little clumsy with her job.  She has a short temper and if pushed too far, tends to act like a thug and scares others around her. A quality she's trying to get rid of.

Connection to canon characters (if applicable): Detective Gumshoe and Edgeworth was the reason she became a detective.

Brief Background: At age 8, Mio, along with her little sister, were abandoned by their parents. Because of this, Mio developed anger issues.  Mio's strict aunt took her and her sister in. At age 12, Mio started fighting on the streets to vent her anger. And at age 13, she was caught fighting on the streets by the police. Not wanting to deal with a violent child, Mio's aunt kicked her and her sister out, giving them money for a cheap apartment.  To support Maki and herself, Mio started stealing money from the people she fought.

At age 15, on a stormy night, Mio left to get some food, while her sister, Maki, was afraid she was going out to fight again. Against her older sister's thug life, Maki went after Mio. Maki ended up running into Mio's friend, Hina, and asked about her sister. When she learned that Hina had no information on Mio's whereabouts, Maki ran off to continue her search. Worried, Hina called Mio, reporting that Maki was running around the city alone.

The two friends met up and searched for Maki. After a couple of hours, Mio found Maki...dead in an alleyway, with the murderer running away. Hearing Mio's scream, Hina rushed over to the scene. With Mio completely devastated, Hina called the police.

The police, along with Detective Gumshoe (who was still a new detective), arrived on the scene. Naturally hating law enforcement because of her thug life, Mio fled the scene with a few officers on her tail, since she was considered a witness.  Edgeworth, who was 20 years of age at the time, arrived on the scene to investigate. After investigating everything they could at the moment, Gumshoe and Edgeworth set out to help the police look for Mio. Gumshoe and Edgeworth found Mio and eventually caught her. After some convincing, Mio agreed to testify; on the condition that they would let her help them investigate. Mostly because Mio was originally going to go after the killer herself.

They hesitantly agreed and they worked together on the case, Mio's outlook on law enforcement slowly changing. It was fully changed when Maki's murderer was caught and sent to jail. A few days after the killer was caught, Mio approached Edgeworth and Gumshoe, announcing that she had decided to become a detective.  A few years later, Mio accomplished her goal of becoming a detective at a young age. She had gained a sense of justice and from then on, she had worked on different cases with different prosecutors.

Over there was a certain Phoenix Wright, studying to become a lawyer. What she didn't know it Phoenix was badly bullied by a classmate of his who went to extreme measures to torture him. Some time after Franziska was there, he decided to make Phoenix suffer once and for all. Something so evil, Phoenix would hate him, so he made sure both of them were fast asleep, and as quietly as possible, set it up. When they both woke up, they were horrified when seeing what Phoenix's bully did to them.

Throughout those six years, he has helped Franziska win a few cases. He didn't grow up to be a stuck-up von Karma because his uncle always played with him and never talked to him about being perfect, unless Manfred was walking along a hallway, which was then where they give each other a signal and change their personalities from fun to serious. It always worked, so Manfred never knew that his grandson wanted nothing to do with perfection. Six years later, when meeting Phoenix, Felix thought something was familiar about it, and when finding out that he was his father, Felix grew incredibly close to him.


Entrant's Name: Percei

Character's Name: Cheryl Illbish
Age: 41

Occupation: Film Producer at Global Studios, Defendant in case of State v. Illbish

Brief Physical Description: Of average height, she's a frail but shapely woman. her age is beginning to show despite her attempts to hide it by dying her hair blonde.

Brief Personality Description: Cheryl is what her name pun suggests, a bit of a shrill bitch. She is a hardened, aggressive business woman, who oozes with self-confidence. This though is constantly her downfall, because she becomes too cocky and confident, it gets to the point when sometimes she makes a large mistake and cannot admit it due to prior confidence.

All throughout her murder she always seems to have something more important to attend to. Be it a conference call on her Bluetooth, or an important e-mail on her Blackberry. All business, all the time (never taking time to speak on the phone casually, or things like that); she never seems to be focused on the matter at hand and doesn’t seem to understand the severity of what she’s going through. A running gag with Cheryl is her constantly firing one unlucky soul and then rehiring him for some arbitrary reason, only to have him fired a few minutes later.

When not on the phone, she has a very hard to describe personality. A good comparison is like the teacher or principal who everyone hated, but they got things done and you came out of the situation better than you were. She’s constantly treating her attorney as if he’s one of her unlucky employees. Lecturing and talking down to him, she’s not rude per se, but she is nowhere near polite.

In reality she does have a sort of moral conscience, shown in her romantic relationship with Horus Canai, the victim. She is revealed to have left her business behind when she spent time with him. And by the end of her case, this begins to show more and more as she sees what people are doing to have her.

Connection to canon characters (if applicable): The successor of Dee Vasquez after 1-3

Brief Background: Always upwardly motivated, Cheryl has been agressive about her work, but always returning with good quality. The head honchos at Global Studios had been keeping their eyes on her for a good time, and after Dee Vasquez was caught up and arrested for a murder. They knew that Cheryl would be the perfect person for the job. Soon after taking over the Steel Samurai show she decided to revolutionize the franchise. The introduction of the Nickel Samurai brought new life to the series, but when its star was arrested again, Cheryl decided to escape from the infamous franchise.

After making the Steel Samurai movie, Cheryl passed the torch onto her successor. She got into movies, and quickly became the must have producer, many of her movies did fantastic in the box office, and a couple won Oscars. She worked constantly with one man in particular, director Horus Canai. Many of their best movies were made when they were together, and their final film together, "Pacific's Five" was rumored to become their opus magnum. But tragedy struck when Horus was murdered on set and Cheryl was accused, with some evidence.

After being proved innocent in her trial, Cheryl moved on to other projects, including a law drama inspired in part by her actions in court.

Brief Background: James was never an approachable person, he was born in Japan and stayed there his entire life. While growing up, James was bullied and harassed by his classmates, he remained silent and developed a passionate desire to exact justice on his foes, however his judgment had always been rather skewed.

In his pursuit of justice, James grew up to be a Detective and worked in Criminal Affairs. He didn't exactly develop an ensemble of close friends but he became developed mutual respect for Detectives Dick Gumshoe and Bo Ginman. James admired his acquaintances friendly and laid back attitude and started a sort of stalking habit.

One day Ginman, without warning, submitted a letter of resignation, left the department and inexplicably moved away. With some rather unorthodox investigation methods, James discovered that Ginman had been diagnosed with a rare blood disease and left for North America to live out the rest of his days in an undisclosed location.

James saw this as a golden opportunity to fill his empty life with purpose so he murdered Bo’s younger brother Casey (the only person who knew about Bo's condition), disguised himself as Bo and assumed his identity. He returned to the force, posing as Bo Ginman and said that he had been ready for early retirement but felt obligated to come back and put his brother’s murderer in prison. The investigation of the death of Casey, along with the apparent disappearance of James proceeded for two weeks until Gumshoe got suspicious of “Bo’s” new personality. Bo then points the finger at Gumshoe saying that “Gumshoe is trying to kill off all of the Detectives that are obviously more competent than him” and that he saw Gumshoe kill James and dispose of his body before his very eyes.

Gumshoe is tried for both murders and on the final day of the trial when it appears as though all is lost, The real Bo Ginman enters the courtroom, rather than accepting death he had pursued treatment and been cured. James is found out, arrested and jailed. Afterward, the real Bo Ginman rejoins the force.
