Celeste Inpax was Adrian Andrews's mentor, former lover to Matt Engarde and Juan Corrida's fiancée. She committed suicide when Juan Corrida called off their wedding. Her suicide played a large role in Juan Corrida's murder two years later.

SuicideEdit

Celeste Inpax and Matt Engarde

Inpax and Engarde.

Celeste Inpax and Adrian Andrews worked at Global Studios together. Inpax was Andrews's mentor, but Andrews began to develop an unhealthy dependence on Inpax.

Celeste Inpax was manager to actor Matt Engarde. The two dated, but unbeknownst to Inpax, Engarde was merely using her to service his own career before ending their relationship. After the relationship ended, Inpax moved to Worldwide Studios to avoid scandal, and became the manager of Engarde's rival, Juan Corrida. The two developed a romantic relationship and eventually became engaged. Upon learning this, Engarde, intending to hurt his rival, revealed their past relationship to him days after the engagement. Corrida immediately canceled the wedding. Heartbroken by this, Inpax told her friends, "It looks like I may have been caught by an insidious man..." before hanging herself.

AftermathEdit

Inpax suicide

Corrida discovers Inpax's body.

Corrida discovered the body first and saw his chance to ruin Engarde. He forged a suicide note to use as ammunition later, and then hid it within a bear-shaped puzzle box, an object that only Andrews would come to know how to open. The note mentioned the misdeeds of Matt Engarde that had eventually driven her to her death; Corrida intended to disguise himself as Engarde by dressing as his character, the Nickel Samurai, and attending a press conference after the Hero of Heroes Grand Prix at the Gatewater Imperial Hotel, in which he would reveal the note and expose Engarde as the cold and manipulative individual he was.

Suspicions were soon raised on the basis of Inpax's missing suicide note, and rumors surfaced that Corrida had hidden it from the public.

ResolutionEdit

Main article: Farewell, My Turnabout

Inpax's suicide had a serious effect on Adrian Andrews. She became lost and vulnerable without her mentor, and eventually attempted suicide herself. When her attempt failed, Andrews started attending counseling sessions. Before long, tabloids began to report rumors of Andrews (who had since become Engarde's manager) and Corrida being engaged in a romantic affair, and digging up information about Inpax's suicide as a result. This was actually an attempt by Andrews to obtain the suicide note from Corrida so that she could burn it and preserve her mentor's dignity.

At the third annual Hero of Heroes Grand Prix, Corrida tried to put his plan into action. Unfortunately for him, Engarde had found out, and had hired an assassin named Shelly de Killer to kill his rival in order to preserve his own "refreshing as a spring breeze" public persona. De Killer then kidnapped Phoenix Wright's assistant Maya Fey in order to blackmail the attorney into defending Engarde. Engarde was tried as the killer and almost got away with Corrida's murder, but Wright eventually managed to turn his hired assassin against his employer. Engarde soon confessed in order to escape the killer's wrath and was convicted of hiring an assassin. The man that had caused Inpax to kill herself had now been brought to justice.

NameEdit

  • Her Japanese surname, "Amano", means "of heaven". This is probably a reference to her being deceased.
  • "Celeste" and "Céleste" come from the Latin word "caelestis", meaning "heavenly". They were probably chosen because of her celestial-based Japanese surname. "Céleste" is even the French word for "celestial".
  • "Pax" is the Latin word for "peace", which would make her name "Celeste Inpeace", which sounds similar to "rest in peace", referencing her death.
  • Her full English name, "Celeste Inpax", could also be a play on "celestial impact". This could be a reference to the conflict between Juan Corrida and Matt Engarde, two television "stars".
  • Her full French name may be a play on "la voûte céleste", which means "canopy of heaven" (in reference to the visible part of the celestial sphere).
