Olga "Quick-Fingers" Orly was a con artist masquerading as a Russian waitress at the Borscht Bowl Club. She was the prosecution's key witness in the trial of Phoenix Wright for the murder of Shadi Smith.
- Main article: Turnabout Trump
Orly is a professional card dealer known for helping clients cheat in poker games. Shadi Smith hired her as a card dealer and conspired with her to beat Phoenix Wright in a game of poker. To this end, Orly was planted as a waitress at the Borscht Bowl Club, a Russian restaurant in which Phoenix Wright worked as a pianist, and donned the persona of a nervous, introverted young woman with a thick Russian accent. She would take pictures, deal cards and make the borscht.
Orly was to plant a card, the Five of Hearts, in Wright's pocket before the game. She did this successfully, however Wright found the card before the game and discarded it in a grape juice bottle. During the game, Orly was supposed to slip a fifth ace into the deck used and put it in Wright's hand so that Smith could call him out as a cheater and find the card hidden in his pocket during a body search. This was to cause Wright to lose the game and tarnish his reputation of "never losing a game in 7 years," as well as wrongfully exposing him as a cheater.
When the plan did not go as expected, because of Wright's lucky discovery and disposal of the card, Smith hit Orly on the neck with one of Wright's grape juice bottles, knocking her out cold. By the time she had woken up, Smith had been killed, and Wright had been arrested. Prosecutor Winston Payne was assigned to the case, and he set Orly up as the sole eyewitness to the murder.
In court, while initially keeping up her "timid Russian waitress" persona, Orly testified about the poker game and claimed that Wright had hit Smith with a grape juice bottle. Wright's lawyer, Apollo Justice, found a series of holes in the fake waitress's testimony, until she finally buckled under Justice's tactics and cast off her waitress costume to reveal her true clothing and self as "Quick-Fingers" Orly. Justice was also able to notice Orly subconsciously scratching the back of her neck, revealing who the real user and victim of the grape juice bottle were. Justice's mentor Kristoph Gavin then tried to convince Justice to implicate Orly as the killer, but Justice found that conclusion contradictory, and Wright began to suggest that a fourth person, the real killer, had been in the room. This led to Gavin being implicated as the killer.
After the trial, Orly kept up her double job at the Borscht Bowl Club as waitress and card dealer, as well as adopting both personae she had demonstrated in the trial: the shy Russian waitress for serving customers at the restaurant, and the smart-mouthed card dealer for the underground poker club.
- Her Japanese given name, "Masaka" (雅香), means "impossible!", "that can't be!" or "no way!" Incidentally, "NO WAI", a corruption of "no way!", is part of the "O RLY?" internet meme. Thusly, both her English and Japanese names could be seen as referencing the meme.
- "Olga" is a popular Slavic female given name that means "holy" (unsuited to someone of Orly's lifestyle) or "prosperous" (which a con artist would hope to be).
- "Orly" refers to the internet meme "O RLY?", which is short for "Oh, really?" This fact is actually referenced in Turnabout Trump, continuing the Ace Attorney tradition of having "punny" names.
- To date, Olga Orly has been the only witness for an introductory court trial who is not the defendant, the culprit, or a professional from the Criminal Affairs Department. The idea behind Turnabout Trump was to set her up as the apparent culprit, only to reveal the plot twist that it was actually Kristoph Gavin, the defense's co-counsel.
- One frame of her camera's flash bears a striking resemblance to the "shine"-like symbol seen beside the title for each Ace Attorney game to date.
