|Allow me to explain!|
Ahlbi Ur'gaid is a monk-in-training who works as a tour guide in Khura'in. Once he starts one of his tour monologues, there is no stopping him. When Ur'gaid was accused of murder, Phoenix Wright, who was visiting Khura'in at the time, stepped in to defend him in court.
Early life Edit
By the time Ur'gaid was born, the Defiant Dragons and their fight against Defense Culpability Act was already a fact of life in Khura'in. Growing up, he was taught that lawyers were evil people who would tell any lie in order to win trials. Thus, he had never questioned the practice of relying on the Divination Séance alone as conclusive evidence in trials.
Ur'gaid dreamt of becoming a monk at Tehm'pul Temple. He began his training there early in life, and befriended one of the temple's guards Paht Rohl. He learned that Rolh was ince a monk-in-training himself, but had to quit after his parents died in order to support his family. Rohl encouraged Ur'gaid to not to end up like he did, and to finish his monk training.
Tourism trade Edit
In order to ease the financial hardships that came with life at the temple, Ur'gaid started a small sightseeing business. He would show tourists around the kingdom, explaining the cultural significance of various locations and landmarks. He would also sell them snacks like magatah'mans (a Khrua'inese sweet bun).
He met with Maya Fey during her spiritual training in Khura'in. The two formed a close bond, and Fey came to view him as a little brother.
Forbidden excursions Edit
Having trained at Tehm'pul Temple all his life, Ur'gaid was familiar with the strict rules there. Thus, he knew that the temple's treasure room was off limits to unauthorized people. Despite this, he couldn't help himself from sneaking in there from time to time in order to gaze upon the glowing treasure box that held the Founder's Orb. Rohl caught him in the act once and scolded him for it.
This incident did not stop him from future visits, and he went back one fateful day. Accompanied by his dog, Shah'do, he crept down the stairs that led to the halls where the treasure room's entrance was. Before he reached the bottom, he bumped into a man who wore a scarf over his face. He recognized the man as Rohl, who then pointed his gun at him. Ur'gaid put his hands in the air, and Rohl asked him if he had stolen "it." Before he could reply, a blackout occured, and Ur'gaid fearfully fled under the cover of darkness. He dropped his notice scroll in the confusion.
Wright's tour guideEdit
Accused of murderEdit
- Main article: The Foreign Turnabout
Later that day, he went to the bazaar in order to meet up with Fey's old friend, Phoenix Wright, who was invited to celebrate the completion of her training. She had tasked Ur'gaid with keeping him company while she finished her last two weeks of training. Meeting each other in the town's bazaar, Wright agreed to go on one of Ur'gaid's tours. Their first stop was Tehm'pul Temple in order to see the afternoon Dance of Devotion. Meanwhile, Rohl was found dead in the treasure room, along with the empty treasure box and a scroll with Ur'gaid's fingerprints. He was arrested in the middle of the Dance of Devotion on the charges of larceny, murder, and treason.
His trial began the next day, and the Divination Séance proved that he was that last person Rohl saw before feeling the pain of death. He was found guilty, and his pleas of innocence were ignored. Wright had made his way into the courtroom at this point, and objected to this outcome. After learning that there weren't any lawyers in Khura'in, he offered to defend Ur'gaid. Knowing that Wright would share his fate under the DC Act for doing so, Ur'gaid frantically tried to tell Wright to leave him. But the chief prosecutor, Gaspen Payne, revealed Wright's profession as a foreign defense attorney, and requested that he be allowed to represent the accused. Wright assured Ur'gaid that everything would be fine if he just told the truth. But due to the national stigma against lawyers he adopted growing up, Ur'gaid's attitude towards Wright soured. He refused to cooperate with Wright's efforts to help him, and tried to save himself by lying. His lie was easily disproved by Wright, which only put both of them in further danger.
Later on in the trial, Wright learned about the DC Act and the danger it posed to him, and was offered a chance to withdraw from the defense. Instead, he chose to believe in Ur'gaid's innocence, and continued to represent him despite the earlier harsh treatment. Seeing Wright act so selflessly for his sake caused Ur'gaid to reconsider his lifelong belief in lawyers like Wright. After overturning the Insights provided by Princess Rayfa Padma Khura'in, Wright asked Ur'gaid to tell the truth about his last meeting with Rohl. Since Wright was willing to risk his own life trusting him, Ur'gaid chose to believe in the lawyer as well. He revealed everything he remembered about the encounter, but admitted that he didn't see anyone else who could have committed the crime at the time. He tried to tell everyone that Shah'do (who was until that moment hiding in his bag) claimed to see another person there. Knowing this wasn't viable tesimony, Wright instead brought up the possibility that the victim could have been struck dead from behind.
In an attempt to disprove all of the allegations posed by the defense, Payne attempted to call in the head monk, Pees'lubn Andistan'dhin as an eyewitness. Andistan'dhin tried to get Ur'gaid to confess to the crime, and undermined Wright's efforts to get a Not Guilty verdict. But Wright pressed on, and figured out that the head monk was the culprit behind all crimes Ur'gaid was charged with. It was revealed that Rohl had attempted to steal the Founder's Orb in only to discover that the treasure box it was kept in was already empty. Andistan'dhin had gotten to the treasure first, and struck Rohl dead in order to keep his own theft a secret. Ur'gaid was heartbroken to learn that Rohl had to resort to burglary to make ends meet.
As the first person to be acquitted in the 23 years since the DC Act was passed, Ur'gaid was elated. He thanked Wright, and apologized for not trusting him earlier. When Wright tried to say that the Divination Séances weren't enough to hold a proper trial, Ur'gaid warned him to keep his voice down if he wanted to avoid being confused for a rebel. After an encounter with the intimidating justice minister, Inga Karkhuul Khura'in, Ur'gaid and Wright decided to resume the tour until Fey finished her training.
Assisting Wright's investigationEdit

The Minister of Justice's murderEdit
- Main article: Turnabout Revolution
He once again assisted Wright, whom was investigating with Miles Edgeworth, in Inga Karkhuul Khura'in's murder investigation. He informed them that Shah'do had been chasing down Datz Are'bal, and eventually he made his way into the royal residence via a cracked wall. He showed them the hat belonging to Nayna that he had found and he gushed about seeing a channeling take place while searching for his dog, presenting them with a photo he took. Wright noted that he shouldn't technically be in the royal residence, but Ur'gaid told him that after Fey's trial, he wanted to help the revolution in any way he can, tired of seeing innocent lives getting hurt by the law.
Ur'gaid is an industrious and energetic boy who loves to tell people about Khura’in, putting everything he has into what he does. His explanations, usually started with an enthusiastic "Allow me to explain!", are often long-winded and incredibly detailed, going on for hours at a time unless someone stops him. He greets foreigners with the traditional Khura'inese greeting "hap'piraki" and often times offers them "magatah'man," a Magatama-shaped sweet bun. Despite being otherwise friendly, he, like most of his country, holds a deep distrust and hatred towards defense attorneys. This dislike quickly evaporates over the course of his trial, as Wright decides to risk his own life for a chance at proving Ur'gaid's innocence, and then goes on to show the potential for lawyers to reveal the truth instead of twisting it.
Despite being generally law-abiding, he has a tendency to break the rules such as viewing the Sacred Treasure without permission or sneaking into the royal residence. Eventually, his trust in Wright and distaste for how the law treats the accused leads him to believe in the cause of the Defiant Dragons.
Ur'gaid also has the personality traits of a "shrewd businessman", despite his young age, charging twenty dahmas for a magatah'man, five more than a shop in the local bazaar (an increase he calls a "service fee"). He also deeply cares for the well-being of his customers and the integrity of his relationship with them.
- His Japanese name, "Bokuto Tsuani" (ボクト・ツアーニ), is a play on "boku to tsuā ni", which translates to "tour with me", alluding to his occupation as a tour guide.
- "Ahlbi Ur'gaid", his English name, is a play on "I'll be your guide", in reference to his job as a tour guide.
- Ur'gaid is the youngest defendant in the Ace Attorney series to date, as well as the second youngest witness after Cody Hackins.
- Ur'gaid's tuft of hair is meant to resemble Maya Fey's top knot, showing a link between the cultures of Kurain Village and the Kingdom of Khura'in .
- In the Launch Trailer, Ur'gaid was shown to have Psyche-locks. This, however, did not make it into the final game.
