Ernest Amano is the owner of the Amano Group and father of the kidnapped Lance Amano. Ernest is a laid-back man who cares deeply for his son. When confronted, he often attempts to pacify the other person. Ernest seems quite proud of his wealth, keeping a number of dollar bills tucked into his waistband. Ernest was also a good friend of Manfred von Karma, and would later fund the abroad studies of Miles Edgeworth, for which Edgeworth was very grateful.
