Description

The story mainly revolves around Edgeworth's struggle to determine the meaning of his job in relation to finding the truth behind a collection of cases. This is exacerbated when he becomes a target of the so-called "Prosecutor Purge", an inquisition conducted by the Prosecutorial Investigation Committee intended to weed out and replace prosecutors who are judged to be incompetent or acting inappropriately.

Judge Hakari Mikagami is mysteriously sent to cases that Edgeworth is investigating and attempts to replace him with a younger, less competent prosecutor named Yumihiko Ichiyanagi. Edgeworth himself risks his badge in order to continue his quest for the truth.

In the meantime, he faces a personal conflict when he meets Tateyuki Shigaraki, a defense attorney who used to be an assistant to Edgeworth's father Gregory Edgeworth and has taken over the Edgeworth Law Offices after his death. Shigaraki offers the younger Edgeworth the chance to follow in his father's footsteps and become a defense attorney.

Description

The young "genius" prosecutor of the DA's office, and Phoenix's main rival in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney.

Miles Edgeworth began his career as a prosecutor at the young age of 20, and in the four years since has maintained a perfect record of guilty verdicts. Seen as a snob, his condescending nature and relentless prosecution (along with rumors of evidence and witness tampering) have earned him the name "Demon Prosecutor." He despises criminal behavior, and will do anything to get lawbreakers behind bars. And look stylish doing it.

Description

Detective Dick Gumshoe is the only detective currently employed that Phoenix has any contact with. Though well meaning, he's not the sharpest tool in the shed.

Gumshoe takes great pride in his work, and also in his "strong bond of trust" with the prosecutor's office. He's usually cheerful, is hardworking, and eager to please. But he also takes his job seriously, which causes conflict when he wants to help both sides of the case. Can sometimes be easily discouraged.

Description

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.

Description

Manfred von Karma is a renowned prosecutor who has been undefeated for 40 years, earning him numerous "King of Prosecutors" awards. He has been Miles Edgeworth's mentor, responsible for teaching him everything about prosecuting. He is also the father and mentor of Franziska von Karma. None of his cases were left unsolved, and all of the defendants were declared guilty.

Manfred von Karma is an arrogant prosecutor who believes himself better than others, especially defense attorneys, who he saw as nothing more than annoying flies to be swatted. He is also an intimidating man who holds great sway over the courts thanks to his long win record, and he would often almost take over the judges' jobs during trials. Manfred is a great believer in perfection and demands nothing less from himself and his students. In this quest for perfection, he does whatever it takes to win a case.

Description

Franziska von Karma is the daughter of the prosecutor Manfred von Karma and a formidable prosecuting attorney in her own right. She likes referring to others as "fools" (and variations thereof) and is known to carry a whip (a riding crop when she was younger) with her at all times, which she will often use on almost everybody she meets (although nearly all of her victims are male) with very little provocation.

Franziska von Karma is very much like her father in court; arrogant, but also unrelenting and cold, going to extreme lengths to get a guilty verdict. She likes to use her whip to assert her dominance over other people, including those who are supposed to be her superiors. One notable difference from her father is her greater tendency to lose her cool, which is similar to Edgeworth.

Manosuke Naitou is the revolver-toting second-in-command of the Zheng Fa president's personal bodyguards. He was present during the apparent assassination attempt that was made against the president at Gourd Lake.

Naitou is an arrogant man with a love of chess. He often uses chess metaphors and refers to himself as a "knight" protecting his "king."

Another obvious quirk of Naitou's is his habit of playing with his revolver; he'll often twirl it around his finger, reload it for no reason, and even point it other people when talking to them.

Description

Lotta Hart is a fiery-tempered photographer who appears as a witness in several of series' cases. Much of the photographic evidence in said cases comes from her.

Hart is fierce and loud, but well-meaning. She defends her secrets ferociously, but she is always willing to help Wright, just not for free. Hart is often single-minded in the pursuit of her goals and gets aggravated if she thinks people are mocking her or her homeland. Although she was a paranormal photographer at one point, she is "really bad when it comes to blood and ghosts and stuff", suggesting her want to leap into situations without forethought. Hart also has a habit of changing her job each time Wright sees her. However, it usually incorporates her photography abilities.

Description

Regina Berry is the naïve daughter of the late Berry Big Circus ringmaster Russell Berry. She works as an animal tamer at the circus alongside Regent the tiger.

Since Regina was brought up at the circus, it is the only world she knows. As such, she has a very fantastical view of the world and is extremely naïve. She believes that when people die, they become "stars in the sky". She also doesn't understand that the Trilo Quist puppet was only that, a puppet. She thinks of the dummy as a tenor who sings in the circus and that the ventriloquist himself is just someone who hangs around with "Trilo".

Without realizing it, Regina often uses her looks to her advantage. Moe describes her as being "cuter than a little puppy Maltese" and people often give in to her demands with a single cutesy look from her.

By Gyakuten Saiban 2, Regina eventually began to take on more responsibilities at the circus. At some point, she hired a coworker named Sōta Sarushiro, whom she tasked with the various logistics of their shows. In 2019, the two performed an animal show at a local prison. The show involved a love story between Regent and an elephant named Dali. Sarushiro played a villainous monkey whom Dali would blow away in the climax of the story.

Maya grew up in Kurain, training to be a spiritual medium. After the disappearance of her mother when she was two, and later because her sister left the village, she is destined to become the heir of her family. Though her sister left home they still remain in contact and are very close.

Maya's spiritual powers are still somewhat underdeveloped, and she has trouble calling spirits.

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.
