About Ace Attorney
GyakutenSaibanLogo

Ace Attorney is a franchise centered around a series of visual novel / adventure hybrid video games developed and published by Capcom. It began as a trilogy of comedic legal thrillers known as Gyakuten Saiban (逆転裁判, lit. "Turnabout Trial") created by Shu Takumi and released for Nintendo's Game Boy Advance handheld in Japan between 2001 and 2004. The trilogy was later ported to the Nintendo DS between 2005 and 2007 and released internationally. These games follow the exploits of a passionate rookie defense attorney named Phoenix Wright (Ryūichi Naruhodō in Japan) who fights for his clients in a courtroom setting loosely resembling that of the Japanese legal system, using investigative skills, cross-examinations and evidence. Subsequent games have branched off and altered the formula of the original trilogy, as well as starring different protagonists. Among these, two detective games collectively known as Ace Attorney Investigations (逆転検事 Gyakuten Kenji, lit. "Turnabout Prosecutor") place the player in the role of Phoenix Wright's rival, a genius prosecutor named Miles Edgeworth, as he investigates crime scenes using evidence collection, logic and arguments. Also in progress is a series taking place in Meiji-era Japan and Victorian London, called Dai Gyakuten Saiban (大逆転裁判, lit. "Great Turnabout Trial"), starring Ryūnosuke Naruhodō and a version of the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes. As well, the original trilogy has been ported to Microsoft Windows, WiiWare, iOS and the Nintendo 3DS, and the original Gyakuten Saiban formula has continued with Apollo Justice and Athena Cykes as new recruits seven years after Phoenix Wright's original adventures.more

Terry Fawles was a felon who was sentenced to death for the murder of Dahlia Hawthorne, then tried for the murder of Valerie Hawthorne five years later. The trial for Valerie's murder is notable for being the first trial of Mia Fey as a defense attorney and Miles Edgeworth as a prosecutor.

When Terry Fawles was 20 years old, he worked as a tutor. He fell in love with one of his students, the 14-year-old Dahlia Hawthorne. His devotion to her was so great that they buried a vial of poison under a tree near Hazakura Temple and vowed to each other that whoever lost faith in the other would drink the poison. However, Dahlia did not truly reciprocate Fawles's love, instead manipulating him for her purposes. The poison under the tree was her insurance against Fawles, in that he would unthinkingly commit suicide as soon as he became a danger to her.more
