Housuke tends to be sarcastic and critical. He often makes blunt comments concerning his mentor Naruhodou Ryuuichi's piano playing in particular. He occasionally even shows some disdain for some of his clients. He also has a vain side; he frequently makes puns out of his own name, and he practices his shouting for hours at night, calling it his "Chords of Steel", which sometimes makes his voice raspy. Underneath it all, he is serious about his job, and he cares deeply about justice. He is also caring, frequently worrying about Trucy Wright as well as his clients.

In court, Odoroki Housuke is often unsure of himself and easily flustered. He has been shown to suffer somewhat from stage fright in court. However, he is just as determined as his mentor was. His training under his former mentor, Kirihito Garyuu, has led him to rely mostly on facts and arguments, which often puts him at odds with Naruhodou's use of questionable tactics. Housuke has also adopted Kirihito's serious attitude, which conflicts with Wright's easygoing manner. Housuke's unusual hairstyle frightens many of the defendants or witnesses whom he sees, though unlike Naruhodou, who claims his hair is "natural," Housuke uses hair gel.

Housuke is afraid of heights and rides a bike. Additionally, when talking about newspapers, he has admitted that he only reads the funnies. Housuke claims to be good with astrology and hula hoops. The bracelet Housuke has helps him to focus on the nervous habits of other people. When Housuke feels his bracelet getting tighter during a cross-examination, he knows to focus on the witness.

<hidden by spoiler settings>It is revealed that Trucy Wright is his younger half-sister, and that Thalassa Gramarye is his biological mother. This also makes Zak Gramarye his stepfather. He inherited his special bracelet from his mother.

A tough veteran prosecutor who's seen it all, yet never lost her drive. To Jessica Poole, the courtroom is a battlefield. She gives every trial her all, whatever the consequences. Charismatic and competent, she treats the defense as a foe, and won't hesitate to destabilize and ridicule the opposing attorney with biting sarcasm. She always sticks by her principles, to the point of stubbornness. She has been known to act recklessly and to bend the rules when she believes they get in the way of justice. Despite her attitude on the job, Jessica has a caring, motherly side outside of court, and will do anything to help her friends.

<hidden by spoiler settings>She and Judge used to be lovers in university, but she left him to concentrate solely on her career. With her unflinching determination to fight corruption and hard-nosed methods, she made a name for herself, but also dangerous enemies. As a result, she suffered a depression and had to start a new life in the Virgin Islands, where she founded a family. However, the mafia found her there, and killed her husband and kids. She returned to her country with a passion, and when she learnt that her former fiancé's brother had been murdered, she vowed to herself to do anything in her power to bring the Mysterious Bust Killer to justice to redeem herself.

Rhea Wits is a bright and cheerful young woman who happens to work in the death industry. Her brother Nathan was brutally murdered by an infamous serial murderer, the "Mysterious Bust Killer", and she had to testify in the trial of the alleged culprit, Robert Erlenmeyer, where she befriended Judge Chambers who, like her, had lost of a member of his family to the murders. When Judge is arrested for the murder of Erlenmeyer, she decides to help Apollo investigate the case, convinced that there is more to the story than meets the eye.

A dynamic businesswoman who seems to have everything under control, she is not afraid to show her emotions and weaknesses when she needs to. Like a lot of twenty-somethings, she still shows some childish traits and loves to talk about her various quirks and link situations to irrelevant details from her personal life. Rhea is not always as tactful as she should be, and has a penchant for dark humor typical of those in her profession. However, she is hard-working, dedicated, and quickly proves useful in the investigation.

<hidden by spoiler settings>It is revealed that Rhea Wits is the sociopathic, real Mysterious Bust Killer, and only grew closer to Apollo in order to get information out of his investigations and trials (though there are hints that she wasn't entirely pretending). Rhea murdered her brother, Nathan, in order to appear as a victim of the case, and not arouse suspicion for her continued interest in the investigation.

She had manipulated Robert Erlenmeyer into believing that he killed her victims, and eventually murdered him so that the police would assume he was still at large. This would have enabled her to kill as many people as she liked without ever arousing the authorities' suspicions. Judge Chambers was murdered because he had stumbled upon her killing Robert. She hid her victims' bodies in the cemetaries she worked at, as her job as a funeral director allowed access to. She was the one who had stolen Apollo's bracelet. Her name is an anagram of "it was her".

The victim of this case, Robert was the infamous Mysterious Bust Killer. Allegedly murdered, his body has yet to be found.

<hidden by spoiler settings>
Robert Erlenmeyer is actually not dead- his "murder" was an elaborate stunt orchestrated by Paul Strings and Robert's twin brother, Shawn O. Fisher/Bob Erlenmeyer, to break him out of prison. Robert is not actually the Mysterious Bust Killer, too. The real Mysterious Bust Killer is Rhea Wits. Rhea Wits took advantage of his insanity and convinced him that he was the Mysterious Bust Killer, which explains his insisting he is so.

Rhea murders Robert in order to make it look like he had "escaped", thus, she would have been able to murder as much as she liked and the police would just think it's Robert. His mental problems are rooted from the time his pet cat had died in a car accident when he was a child. Although it wasn't his fault, it still traumastised him. Before his incarceration as the "Mysterious Bust Killer", Robert was working as a biology teacher.

Ema Skye is Phoenix Wright's forensics-obsessed investigative partner and co-counsel in the murder of Bruce Goodman, during the events of "Rise from the Ashes" (which is not included in the 2001 Gameboy Advance release). Her older sister, Lana Skye, was arrested for allegedly murdering Bruce Goodman. Lana instructed Ema to request the services of Mia Fey, but chose Phoenix Wright instead as Mia was absent. Ema lost her parents in a car crash at a young age, so Lana is her only family. Lana raised Ema alone while pursuing her career, resulting in Ema's interest in forensics.

Ema is cheerful and optimistic. She loves science, wanting to be a forensic investigator, and is set to go into forensics in 2020. She also deeply admires both her older sister Lana, and the prosecutor Miles Edgeworth, though she isn't a fan of his office. Ema somewhat lacks in common sense; when examining Wright's desk, she claimed to be studying for a history test and she inaccurately proclaimed George Washington to be "the first king of America." She also has a tendency to write down notes in her notepad, even if they're completely irrelevant to the case at hand.

<hidden by spoiler settings>
During the events of the SL-9 Incident, Ema was waiting for Lana in her office so that they could go out for dinner. Suddenly, the serial killer Joe Darke, who had escaped from his interrogation, burst into the room. Prosecutor Neil Marshall soon came to the rescue, engaging Darke in a fight. During the struggle, Ema saw a man about to stab another with a broken knife. Thinking the attacker was Darke, Ema pushed him, knocking him out. She lost consciousness soon afterward. When she woke up, Lana was cradling her in her arms, Neil was dead, and Darke had been recaptured.

Detective Bruce Goodman interviewed Ema for evidence, but she could not remember anything clearly and was still shock from the experience. A couple of days later, she managed to draw a picture of one man stabbing another on the back of a list of the evidence used to convict Darke.

Two years after the SL-9 Incident, on the last day in court during the events of "Rise from the Ashes", Ema testified about the SL-9 Incident, and the picture she had drawn came up. Eventually, Wright found out that Lana had believed Ema had killed Neil Marshall by accident, but soon proved that Gant was the real killer in both cases and that he had blackmailed Lana with the lie that her younger sister was the killer.

Her personality underwent a dramatic shift when she failed to get her dream job in forensics, becoming much moodier than she was as a teenager and disliking talking to people unless they have something concerning forensics to discuss, otherwise, she usually ignore them. She also developed a great liking for "snackoos", spending large quantities of time vigorously munching on them and ignoring those around her. The sound of her munching became an identifying signal for Apollo Justice, and she sometimes throw snackoos at people who annoyed her.

Ema's disregard for other people extend to her coworkers. She cannot stand prosecutor Klavier Gavin, calling him a "glimmerous fop" (which Apollo always tries to correct to "glamorous" in his head). According to Skye, prosecutors should be "simmerous" and "cool of wit and furrowed of brow" (likely referring to the more serious Miles Edgeworth). She's also resentful of Klavier for what happened to Phoenix Wright, since he had been the prosecutor at the trial that caused his disbarment, and thus she held him personally responsible. Her love of forensics has not lessened however, immediately cheering up if the opportunity to implement it presents itself and sneakily investigating crime scenes when the assigned forensic investigators are not around.

Paul Strings is the Chief Justice of his State's Supreme Court, and quite a towering presence. A self-taught man who comes from a poor family in the countryside with an abusive father, he is an avid reader who is fond of quoting famous philosophers and intellectuals, and has a love for everything ancient. Even if he is not in charge of the Judge Chambers case, he seems to be strangely involved with its events, and appears to have a history with the defendant. His son, Gerald, is Judge's replacement in court.

Paul Strings is a rather pompous and pretentious man who speaks in a convoluted, archaic way. Even in private, he behaves like an important public figure, and acts cold and distant towards everyone, including his own son (though in reality he is very proud of him). Paul is extremely idealistic and has high moral standards: he strives to follow a stoic lifestyle, and is as strict to himself as he is to others. However, the abstractions in his books and the realities of a life of power have been known to contradict each other...

<hidden by spoiler settings>(Correctly) Believing that Robert Erlenmeyer isn't the true Mysterious Bust Killer, Paul orchestrated (with the assistance of Shawn O. Fischer/Bob Erlenmeyer) Robert's "murder" in order to get him out of prison.

Thalassa Gramarye was the daughter of renowned magician Magnifi Gramarye. She was a magician's assistant in Troupe Gramarye, until she was accidentally shot during a magic show rehearsal. Nobody knows for certain what became of her, but she is thought to be dead.

<hidden by spoiler settings>
When Thalassa Gramarye was young, she left Troupe Gramarye to marry a guest performer from one of their shows, having a son, Apollo, with him. A year later, her husband was tragically killed on stage. She then married one of the members of the troupe, Zak Gramarye, and they had a daughter, Trucy, together.

A few years later, during a rehearsal of "Zak & Valant's Quick-Draw Shootem", which required the use of prop pistols, Thalassa was shot. Her father quickly took charge to cover up the accident, to protect the Gramarye name. Zak and Valant believed Thalassa to be dead. However, she survived and ended up in the small European nation of Borginia. She lost her memory and her sight from the trauma, and thus she had to restart her life from scratch.

To make her living, Thalassa began singing in a small restaurant. She called herself "Lamiroir", and she performed with a young piano player, Machi Tobaye. Lamiroir stayed in Borginia until a producer discovered her, and she toured the world. However, the producer came up with the title "The Landscape Painter in Sound" before finding out that Lamiroir was blind, so to be able to continue to use the title, they agreed under contract that Tobaye would pose as the blind member of the duo. No one else knew about this except Lamiroir's bodyguard, Romein LeTouse.

Justice's defense inspired Lamiroir to go through with an eye operation, and she subsequently recovered her memory and her sight. However, Justice and Trucy continued to have no idea that they had seen their mother. Thalassa thanked Wright for all he had done, including allowing her to see her children and adopting Trucy. Phoenix asked whether she would reveal herself to them, and she replied that she would wait for the right moment.

Like all of Magnifi's descendants, she can utilize special-alloy bracelets to "perceive" subtle nervous habits. Thalassa gave Apollo one of her bracelets and left him to return to the Troupe (what became of Apollo prior to his court debut is unknown).

Mike Meekins is a clumsy and excitable individual who was an initial suspect in the murder of Bruce Goodman in the evidence room of the Los Angeles police department.

As well as being clumsy and excitable, Mike is an overzealous individual. He often salutes, calls everyone "sir", and uses his megaphone for dramatic effect even if the person he is talking to is standing right beside him. His clumsiness is easily demonstrated by the fact that he cannot even get out of his car without getting his tie caught in the car door two-thirds of the time; the remaining times it's his I.D. card. He even bungled bandaging a cut on his hand by covering his entire hand in bandages. Perhaps appropriately, considering his excitability and clumsiness, he aspires to one day to be like Detective Dick Gumshoe.

<hidden by spoiler settings>
Mike also appears in Gyakuten Kenji during the events of "The Kidnapped Turnabout", in which he was assigned the role of dressing up as the Blue Badger at Gatewater Land. He reappeared again in Apollo Justice in "Turnabout Succession", apparently being demoted to court bailiff after one too many mistakes. He chased who he thought was Zak into Defendant Lobby #2, but inside the Lobby, he instead only found Zak's daughter Trucy. Wright returned to Defendant Lobby #2 and found Meekins there. Wright figured out that Trucy had used her giant "Mr. Hat" puppet to lure Meekins away from the real Zak.

"Director Hickfield", also known as "Director Hotti", is the self-proclaimed director of the Hotti Clinic and the Hickfield Clinic. He is not the real Director Hotti/Hickfield, however, as his interactions with nurses imply that he is actually a patient at the hospital, and the nurses have authority over him. He has even freely admitted to not being the real director. Nevertheless, at one point, the normally astute Miles Edgeworth believed that he was the real Director.

"Hickfield" likes "examining" pretty girls and claims his speciality to be in "young, silky-smooth hottie patients". "Hickfield" also likes to spread gossip about the attractive female patients in the clinic, although he claims to "become 'embarrassed'" when talking about them, to which Wright begged him not to elaborate further. Despite the "Director"'s unique personality, he proved valuable to Wright on one occasion due to his knowledge of female patients, and Wright admitted to himself that he "could learn about how to stay on a lead" from him, however obsessed "to the max" the "Director" was.

Trucy Wright is a professional stage magician at the Wright Anything Agency who also serves as an investigative partner for the lawyers in the agency.

Similarly to Wright's old assistant Maya Fey, Trucy is bright, energetic and very naïve. However, underneath all this, she is also very perceptive and intelligent, usually being able to piece things together in and out of court even more quickly than Apollo Justice does. She recently became a fan of Klavier Gavin and his band, getting a large "allowance bonus" from her father to buy a great deal of their merchandise.

She often orders "Extra-spicy" curry, just to make sure it is, in fact, spicy. However, the curry turns out to be too spicy for her, and she always wastes it. Despite her cheerful demeanor, Phoenix has said that she is hiding a deep sadness. This is understandable given that, as far as she knows, she has lost both her biological parents.

<hidden by spoiler settings>
Trucy's birth name is Trucy Enigmar. Her biological father is Shadi Enigmar (a.k.a. Zak Gramarye) and her biological mother is Thalassa Gramarye (now known as Lamiroir). This makes Apollo Justice her older half-brother.

The first eight years of Trucy's life were spent with her father, magician Zak Gramarye. Her mother, Thalassa Gramarye, disappeared after an accident involving a magic trick being performed between her, Zak and his partner Valant Gramarye. Being of the Gramarye bloodline, she had the ability to perceive subtle, involuntary movements in people.

One day, Trucy's grandfather, Magnifi Gramarye, was killed, and her father was put on trial for the murder. Before the trial, Kristoph Gavin gave Trucy a piece of evidence, instructing her to give it to Phoenix Wright, Zak Gramarye's attorney. The evidence turned out to be fake; prosecutor Klavier Gavin, through a tip from his brother Kristoph, exposed the evidence as a fraud, but Zak Gramarye suddenly disappeared from the courtroom. Trucy helped her father to escape, distracting bailiff Mike Meekins with her giant puppet Mr. Hat. Zak promised Trucy that he would return one day.

Two weeks later, Phoenix Wright called Trucy Enigmar to his office to discuss where she would live. Wright searched for relatives of Trucy to no avail, so he took her in and raised her as his own child.

"Ace Attorney" and main character of the first three games, Phoenix has wanted to be a defense lawyer since he was a kid, and first appears as the new addition to Mia Fey's law practice.

Phoenix is generally easy-going, which usually leads to his friends leading him around. He's dedicated to defending his innocent clients, but because he's just starting out he depends a lot on his boss and mentor, Mia Fey. Phoenix is also a loyal friend who won't back down once he's set his mind on something. He has a bit of a sarcastic side that he usually keeps to himself.

The Judge's brother refers to the judge presiding over the Turnabout Beginnings, The Stolen Turnabout and the first day of the Bridge to the Turnabout trials. He is the younger brother of the usual judge that presides over Phoenix Wright's cases.

The judge is naïve and gullible, albeit not as extremely as his brother. Like his brother, he is very easily wooed by female witnesses. He tries to run standard, serious trials with minimal eccentricities. However, he does seem to be prone to giving abrupt verdicts without allowing time for any new points to be presented. He also has a habit of saying that he doesn't know how he feels about certain topics that come up in court.

This judge seems to exhibit a stereotypical Canadian personality. He has certain verbal ticks, such as saying "aboot" in place of "about", ending sentences with "eh", and referring to some people as "hosers". He also discusses many subjects that a stereotypical Canadian might discuss, such as hockey (and his "playoff beard"), foods (donuts and beer), and "double-doubles" (referring to a coffee from Tim Hortons, a highly popular Canadian coffee shop, that has two spoonfuls of sugar and two parts cream).

Jake Marshall is a cowboy-obsessed patrol officer with the Los Angeles Police Department when Bruce Goodman was murdered. He often makes references to the state of Texas, even though he is actually from Los Angeles. Jake is obsessed with the Wild West. He dresses in a poncho and speaks like a stereotypical cowboy. He also tends to be calm and not easily flustered. His second favorite food is Angel Starr's Salisbury steak lunch, his favorite being spaghetti from his local joint.

Jake has a laid-back attitude to his duties as a guard. He's supposed to go inside the evidence room to check it three times a day, but states that it's "not his style" and actually only visits the room once a month to "pay [his] respects".

<hidden by spoiler settings>
On February of 2015, during the events of the SL-9 incident, Jake Marshall took a case with his brother Neil Marshall, detective Angel Starr, detective Bruce Goodman and chief detectives Damon Gant and Lana Skye to track down serial killer Joe Darke. However, tragedy stuck when Darke escaped police custody during a blackout and ran into Neil and Ema Skye. Neil was found dead.

Darke was tried for Neil's death on top of his other murders and he was found guilty. After the incident, Jake was demoted to patrolman, guard of the evidence room, but Jake, alongside Starr and Goodman, thought something was wrong with the evidence. Before his demotion, he acted as a mentor to Dick Gumshoe when Dick started out in the force, giving him a small cactus that he claimed would "listen to all [his] troubles."

For the next two years, Jake tried to convince his peers and superiors to reopen the SL-9 case to find out the truth about what happened to his brother. Even though Starr supported him, Goodman stood steadfast. Finally on February 21st, 2017, the day the SL-9 case was to be closed permanently, Jake stole Goodman's ID. With his knowledge of where the security cameras were, his plan was to disguise himself as Goodman and steal the evidence to examine them himself. However, he hadn't made up his mind.

Around 5:00 PM, Jake received a call from Lana Skye, who told him Goodman had been murdered. Realizing he only had one chance to find out the truth, he put on his disguise and went inside the evidence room. By luck, Goodman's locker was open, but was empty. (The locks in the evidence room had fingerprint scans, meaning only the detective it was assigned to could open it. In this case, a plastic glove was jammed between the sensors. Jake didn't know anything about them.) Jake then went to head back out, but was stopped by officer Mike Meekins. Meekins asked for his ID, but Jake panicked and pulled out a knife, knowing his cover would be blown if he did. Meekins lunged at the knife, cut his own hand and passed out. With his white coat bloodied, Jake went to his own locker and stuffed the coat inside, but mistakenly left a sleeve out.

The next day, Jake was assigned to guard the crime scene, which was at the underground parking lot of the prosecutor's office, and ditched Goodman's ID card there. He assisted defense attorney Phoenix Wright and Lana's sister Ema Skye when they came to investigate; Lana had been accused of Goodman's murder, and Ema had hired Wright to represent her in court.

After court was suspended for the day, Jake decided to turn himself in to the prosecutor's office, but not before giving Wright more information. When the trial resumed the next day, Wright used his information in concert with other information he had gathered to prove that Gant was the real killer in the murders of both Goodman and Neil.
