Character Contest 2007, Fanart Division
Entrant's Name: Nowme
Occupation: defense attorney
Brief Physical Description: short hair, 162cm tall and often wears
wristwatch on her right hand. Her skin is not too light or dark, and she has
dark brown eyes.
Brief Personality Description: A woman who sides with justice and
always wants to win. That's indeed a contradiction. She always makes sure
that every one of her clients is innocent so she doesn't have to lie in
court and states only the truth. That's why she doesn't get much client.
Calm and collected, a bit sarcastic. She always rolls up her sleeves every
time she goes into a court. She often laughs suddenly and starts slamming
things. Loves milk & poking people. Quite ambitious but a bit (too) lazy.
She won't let a person get away with any problems unsolved.
Connection to canon characters (if applicable): Detective Gumshoe &
Miles Edgeworth's acquaintance. (she was a witness) But they probably forgot
Brief Background: Nobody in Lynne Ashe's family was interested with
law, until Lynne they moved to Las Vegas that is. Lynne saw a murder
occurred when she was 19, thus made her a witness. That time she saw a
murder happened. The defendant was innocent, but he was declared guilty
considering the prosecutor that time was Miles Edgeworth. Lynne realized
that the defendant was innocent, yet he still declared guilty because of her
testimony, and she couldn't do anything about it. She felt really bad for
the defendant. Since then, she decided to become a lawyer. She studies at
Grossberg's Law Offices in the age of 20, and three years later, she stopped
studying there and she built her own office. The first client is a drifter
named Jester Rulthe. Lynne Ashe succeeded defending Rulthe and she became (a
little) popular since then.

Occupation: Dream job- Actress Current job - Prosecution
Brief Physical Description: Average. Not too skinny like her sister-
has a bit of pudge- like.. cute pudge. She's only 5 feet tall and
weighs about 110 pounds. Lydia has a child-like disposition causing her to
stand like one too. By that, she slightly turns her feet inward and leans a
bit back when standing, leaving the innocence and feeling much that of a
Brief Personality Description: She's basically everything Franziska
isn't. Many people think she was a bad omen and stole the emotion from her
sister. But that was proven false later at the end of GS2. She's very
childish out of the court. She also uses her child-like demeanor and
cuteness in court to captivate the defense and keep the judge in her back
pocket. Her happiness is her strength and fatal flaw. Not many people like
her over-cheery demeanor, but that's what makes her different. She is proud
to be a von Karma- but she knows that no one's perfect- despite "Papa's"
thoughts. Loves her sister the most out of the family. She feels that her
emotion is too much and she wants to learn how Franziska was able to build
that wall of sturdyness and no breaks of emotion. When she's in too much
emotional stress, she tends to faint. In public or in private. Also- knows a
few languages.. But she refuses to speak German unless proving she can, or
being forced to. The list of Languages; Japanese, French, American, and
Connection to canon characters (if applicable): Manfred von Karma is
her father. Franziska is her older sister of one year. Miles Edgeworth is
her "indirectly" related older brother, also in GS2-GS3 he's her mentor.
Brief Background: Growing up as a von Karma is one thing. But growing
up for her was especially hard. She unlike her sister was more of the rogue
one. She unlike the rest of the family was into the arts while they were
prosecutors. Manfred von karma always expected her to be perfect but her
mind told her otherwise. She tended to like miles more when she was growing
up. But then years passed as Miles left with Manfred back to america,
leaving her with her sister. This lead to a development in closeness. They
at first had this unsettled rivalry- but for no real reason. This
understanding in eachother lead them to being the only things they had to
rely on. Soon the factor of their similarities caused Lydia to purchase her
first hair dye, which was a auburn.. Soon it became a habbit from her, this
was how she came into the world of the "red heads". But Franziska soon left
a few years later- Leaving little Lydia to stay with a Nanny and sometimes
the periodic visit from the oldest sister whose daughter would play with
her. But that didn't statisfy her need for love and family. So she decided
to drop her love for the arts to persue prosecution like her father had
intended for her to do. But she then recieved note on her father's soon to
be execution. This made her want to come even more, now causing her to
contact Miles and arranged for her to arrive in america. It was then she had
asked Miles to be her mentor in prosecution. Miles seeming a bit taken aback
by the question. "Why not your sister?" He asked. She responded simply, "I'm
here for justice, not perfection." Miles, liking how the younger von Karma
daughter thought, took her up on her offer. He mentored her through many
years. After a while- Miles vanished. Leaving Lydia on her own to fufill her
prosecuting duties. But during those seven years-she grew tired of the same
thing- so she took a one year break to explore the world in search of her
dream, acting and art. So she traveled to Paris, Hollywood, and even New
York's Broadway. She soon returned from her break back to the prosecuting
bench. Leaving off where she is today.

made Rowen the prime suspect. In court, when all evidence was pointing to
Reid, Rowen will give up his life and pledge guilty to protect his brother

even in the most dire of situations. (though this appears to be a front).

pride in his difficult, yet mundane occupation at Global Studios. His love
for audio equipment is matched only by his passion for TV, his favourite
show being the New Adventures of the Steel Samurai, the one that saw his 'skillz'
come to light.
His unflinching demeanor is usually never broken, but when it is, it breaks
HARD. The pressure causes him to cut loose, whipping out his most prized
'Pony Palz' doll, combing it's hair furiously, and sweating profusely in an
attempt to fight back the stress. The doll is a coveted toy from his
childhood, and secret shame, though he'd never admit it to anyone.
Connection to canon characters: Attended the same school as Pheonix
in the year below him, frequently teasing and jabbing him for his spiky
haircut, which ultimately ended up in a fight between the two ...Pheonix
won. In his younger days at the school he would refer to Phoenix as 'Rush
the Porcupine', a popular video game character of the time. Despite the
playground scuffles, he revered his older aquaintance, possibly due to his
resemblance of Global's 'Iron Ronin'.
Brief Background: Born to the owners of a discount electronics store,
Louie grew up in front of the TV, raised by the popular action heroes of the
day. He regularly peanut-buttered his hair in an attempt to match his
on-screen idol's striking gold hair arrangement. This finally stopped
however, when he discovered the miracle of bleaching at 7, while scrubbing

shoes. He wears strong cologne and has glued fake hair to his chest. His

food, small children... but he cares for it obsessively to keep it in its
large spherical orange glory, like a fluffy miniature sun.

Character's Name: Dennis
Lischiz / 大石 綾里
(Ōishi Ryōri, written Japanese style, being a lame pun on oishii ryouri
(delicious food). English version is of course. Mr. D. Lischiz)
Occupation: Detective / Recipe tester and restaurant reviewer
Brief Physical Description: About 5'8"/175 cm. Fairly slender build
with scrawny legs. Green eyes and auburn hair.
Brief Personality Description: As a detective, he is very deliberate
and thoughtful taking a while to answer sometimes. He often comes across as
being quite shy. He is logical, hardworking and has an eye for detail. He is
partially long-sighted and needs to use reading glasses to examine paperwork
and evidence, which causes him embarrassment as the glasses are a little too
big and they slip down his nose. However, when talking about food he is much
more expressive and upbeat. Sometimes people describe him as becoming almost
a different person when he is dressed as "Mr Delicious" outside of work
hours. His favourite foods are crepes and pancakes of any kind.
Connection to canon characters (if applicable): None particularly,
but if he is 31 during the events on Gyakuten Saiban 3, he would have met
all the detectives we know well, and most likely reviewed the Tres Bien.
He'd still be in the force around GS4 time, so he would have met Ema and
might have reviewed the Boruhachi.
Brief Background: As a student, he was hardworking and dependable. He
didn't really have much of a career in mind, but he liked cooking and so
wanted to become a chef. His father only wanted him to go into accounting.
Dennis felt pressured and on a teenage whim ran away from his parent's house
at the age of 19. He soon became an alcoholic and for the next 3 years he
spent his time drinking and accumulating debt through gambling. When he was
22, he was arrested for vandalising a statue in the town centre. He actually
had been pretty drunk on that night and so couldn't actually remember
whether he had done it or not. Luckily, thanks to the efforts of the
detectives assigned to his case, he was cleared of all charges. Admiring the
work of the detectives, and finding the job interesting, he cleaned up his
act and trained to become a detective, qualifying a year later when he was
23. He also rekindled his passion for trying out new foods and restaurants –
most of his paycheck would go to paying off his debts and eating out in
restaurants. When he was 25, a restaurant owner asked if he would write a
review for the restaurant. Since then, he has continued to write restaurant
and recipe reviews under the amazingly imaginitive pen-name "Mr. Delicious",
and is also employed at the weekends as a recipe tester. He only drinks wine
with meals now.
