Miles Edgeworth
It doesn't matter how many underhanded tricks a person uses... The truth will always find a way to make itself known. The only thing we can do is to fight with the knowledge we hold and everything we have. Erasing the paradoxes one by one... It's never easy... We claw and scratch for every inch. But we will always eventually reach that one single truth. This I promise you.
Farewell, My Turnabout

Miles Edgeworth is an esteemed prosecutor and an old friend of Phoenix Wright. During his first four years as a prosecutor, he had a perfect win record, and he was a ruthless man who would do anything to get a guilty verdict for the defendant. This all ended when Wright defeated him. Later, Edgeworth became a defendant being represented by his "enemy", Wright. After prosecuting in one more case, Edgeworth left the prosecutor's office to find out what being a prosecutor really meant. He later returned and, by the time of the Mask☆DeMasque trials, had become known as the top prosecutor in America. He also traveled abroad to study international law, prosecuting in five other countries. As well, he was instrumental in finding the leader of a notorious international smuggling ring and bringing him to court.And he is Cure miles and protected her younger sister



Early lifeEditEdit

[4]Edgeworth in fourth grade.Added by DaTorniIn early 2001, when Edgeworth was nine years old, someone stole his lunch money. The suspect at the time was fellow student Phoenix Wright, who had skipped P.E. that day due to a terrible cold. The next day, a class trial was held with Wright as the defendant. Everyone was shouting that Wright was the culprit, but both Edgeworth and Larry Butz, another classmate, stood up for him, saying that no one had proof that he had stolen the lunch money. The class trial ended and the three boys became almost inseparable friends. Edgeworth realized that Butz was the thief, but he let the issue go. Edgeworth would often talk with his friends about his father, famous criminal defense attorney Gregory Edgeworth, whom he idolized.

Miles was always winning awards in school for various activities such as golf competitions, writing essays and playing the flute. Even back then, he hated the limelight and refuted all accolades and prizes he received. However, he had a hard time with folding paper cranes, which caused him much distress.

DL-6 IncidentEditEdit

Main article: DL-6 Incident

[5]Miles, his father and Yogi trapped in the elevator.Added by DaTorniOn December 28, Miles went to the District Court to see one of his father's trials. Gregory was arguing a case against Manfred von Karma. During the course of the trial, Gregory managed to prove that von Karma had forged evidence. As a result of this accusation, von Karma received his first and only penalty. However, von Karma still won and Gregory's client was declared guilty.

After court was adjourned, the Edgeworths went to exit the courthouse through an elevator, accompanied by bailiff Yanni Yogi. At approximately 2:00 p.m., an earthquake struck the courthouse and shut off the power, leaving Yogi and the Edgeworths trapped in the elevator with little oxygen. During the five-hour blackout, Yogi started to panic and attacked Gregory. Miles felt a pistol beneath his feet and threw it at the bailiff, hoping to stop him from possibly killing his father. A single gunshot rang out, and the young boy fell unconscious. The last thing he heard was a demonic scream that would haunt him for 15 years. He woke up inside a hospital; by that time, Gregory Edgeworth was dead, fatally shot in the heart by Yogi's pistol. Miles developed a deathly fear of earthquakes from the incident.A young girl was a witness

The police called upon a spirit medium, Misty Fey, to find the killer. She channeled Gregory, who accused Yogi of the murder. Yogi was put on trial with Robert Hammond defending him. However, Yogi feigned temporary insanity and got a not guilty verdict. The insanity plea, however, ruined his reputation, his fiancee committing suicide shortly after the incident. Meanwhile, media outlets found out about Misty Fey, and the resulting scandal ruined the reputation of her practice. Edgeworth subsequently developed a hatred for defense attorneys and spirit mediums, calling Misty Fey a "fraud".

Miles was then taken under the wing of Manfred von Karma, who took the boy back with him to Germany and trained him to become a ruthless prosecutor like himself. Through this, Miles met Manfred's young daughter Franziska, with whom he shared a strong sibling-like bond.

Law careerEditEdit

First investigationEditEdit

Main article: Turnabout Reminiscence

[6]Edgeworth when he began his career.Added by Tutuboy95After becoming a prosecutor at 20*, Edgeworth returned to the United States with Manfred and Franziska to make his court debut. He got his chance during the trial of Mack Rell, when Rell accused the prosecutor, Byrne Faraday, of being the Great Thief Yatagarasu and ordering him to murder the victim of the case. The case was tied to the KG-8 Incident, in which Manny Coachen, an employee of the Cohdopian Embassy, had stood trial for the murder of Cece Yew, who was to testify about an international smuggling ring. Coachen had been acquitted because the key evidence had been stolen.

However, before Edgeworth could begin his trial, both Faraday and Rell were killed during the recess. It was during the investigation of their murders that Edgeworth first met Kay Faraday, the daughter of the now-deceased Byrne Faraday, and veteran detective Tyrell Badd, as well as then-rookie detective Dick Gumshoe, who was a prime suspect of the murder. Badd dismissed Edgeworth at first, but Edgeworth's logical prowess earned him Badd's respect in the end. Edgeworth eventually accused Calisto Yew of being the Yatagarasu and the true killer. Yew confirmed Edgeworth's line of logic and revealed that she was also an agent of the smuggling ring, but she then escaped by shooting at Edgeworth, who avoided being killed only by the timely intervention of Kay Faraday. Gumshoe was so impressed by Edgeworth that he swore to stick by the young prosecutor's side from that day forth.

First trialEditEdit

Main article: Turnabout Beginnings

[7]Edgeworth in 2012.Added by DaTorniAfter the previous false start, Edgeworth finally got his courtroom debut. The "genius" prosecutor's opponent was rookie defense attorney Mia Fey, who was also new to the courtroom. His case was against Terry Fawles, who was accused of murdering Sergeant Valerie Hawthorne, a policewoman who had testified against him five years prior to the case. Edgeworth used cunning tactics such as intentionally withholding information that would prove valuable to the defense, such as a witness's real identity. Fawles eventually died of poison that he drank, abruptly ending the trial. Edgeworth would later refer to it to Wright as his worst nightmare in court. Meanwhile, the witness, Dahlia Hawthorne, left the court with a smile on her face. [8]Miles Edgeworth surprised during his first trial.Added by AdventureWriter28===Rumors of fraudEdit===

Main article: SL-9 Incident
See also: Turnabout Sisters, Turnabout Memories

Over the next few years, rumors surrounding Edgeworth began to circulate, concerning under-the-table deals, fabricated evidence and illegal investigations. Edgeworth came to be known as the "Demon Attorney" in local newspapers. His old friend Phoenix Wright caught wind of this and attempted to contact him, but he ignored Wright's calls.

Later, Edgeworth prosecuted a case against Joe Darke during the SL-9 Incident. Darke was accused of murdering Neil Marshall, who was to be the prosecutor against Darke for a series of other murders. Due to incriminating evidence, Darke was convicted, but rumors abounded of foul play concerning the evidence, and with all but one of the detectives from the incident being fired or demoted, Edgeworth came under even more scrutiny from the public. As a result of the incident, Edgeworth came to know one of the detectives, Lana Skye, and her sister Ema Skye. After the incident, Lana became chief prosecutor. Edgeworth believed Lana was looking out for him for the next two years.

First defeatEditEdit

[9]Edgeworth's first loss was devastating to him.Added by DaTorniEdgeworth maintained a perfect win record until he met Wright in court in 2016, with Maya Fey as the defendant accused of killing her sister Mia Fey. Later, a witness, Redd White, pinned the murder on Wright instead, and Wright defended himself in court against Edgeworth. Unlike most of Edgeworth's previous opponents, who would buckle under his intimidating tactics, Wright persevered and kept fighting. Still, Edgeworth did not relent, wanting to preserve his perfect win record. However, White eventually confessed to the murder, and Edgeworth was devastated.

Second defeatEditEdit

Main article: Turnabout Samurai

Edgeworth and Wright faced off again in the trial of Will Powers for the murder of Jack Hammer. The trial introduced witness Wendy Oldbag, who instantly fell in love with Edgeworth, much to the latter's dismay. Edgeworth became unrattled and did not protest Wright's suggestion that Oldbag was the killer. On the second day of the trial, Powers's innocence became more certain with Wright exposing more contradictions in the witness testimonies; the judge asked Edgeworth to reconsider his position. By the third day of the trial, Edgeworth was having a crisis of conscience. He forced the final witness, Dee Vasquez, to testify about what she had done after finding the body. This allowed Wright to expose a final contradiction that implicated Vasquez as the real killer. After the trial, Edgeworth approached Wright, who thanked him for helping him. Edgeworth retorted that Wright had caused him to experience "unnecessary feelings" and warned him never to show his face in front of him again.

Accused of murderEditEdit

Main article: Turnabout Goodbyes

On Christmas Eve, Edgeworth received a letter from Robert Hammond to meet with him at Gourd Lake. They took a boat ride to the middle of the lake, and then "Hammond" swore revenge on Edgeworth for ruining his life, and shot twice into the water. He then fell into the lake and swam away, leaving Edgeworth bewildered at what had just transpired, thinking the man had just committed suicide. In a daze, Edgeworth picked up the gun. When he went back to shore, he was arrested on suspicion of Hammond's murder, with the fingerprints he had just placed on the gun as evidence.

Wright found out about the arrest and offered to represent Edgeworth in court, but he refused. Wright investigated the crime, anyway, along with Gumshoe. Wright saw that the case had a connection with the DL-6 Incident and Misty Fey, and he returned to Edgeworth. Impressed by his ability to gather information, Edgeworth admitted that he just did not want to get Wright involved in the case, but now that he was involved, Edgeworth agreed to have Wright defend him.

The prosecutor for the case was Manfred von Karma, Edgeworth's adoptive father and mentor. Edgeworth knew that von Karma would not relent for his sake, as he would do anything for a guilty verdict. Wright's co-council Maya Fey, whom Edgeworth had prosecuted months before, was arrested in contempt of court after persistently pressing the witness, but this action allowed Wright to turn the case around to adjourn the trial. Edgeworth paid Fey's bail in return.

The next witness was an old boat shop owner at Gourd Lake; Wright found a connection between him and the DL-6 Incident. Von Karma's relentless prosecution tactics caused the judge to render a guilty verdict, but Larry Butz burst in with his own testimony, and the verdict was canceled. Edgeworth informed Wright that Butz's erratic testimony was Wright's chance to tear a hole into von Karma's "perfect" trial. Indeed, Butz's testimony allowed Wright to pinpoint the real location and time of the murder, accusing the witness of killing Hammond in his boat shop and then posing as Hammond in the boat. Meanwhile, the witness disappeared from the courtroom, and a search warrant was issued for him. He was caught the next day; Wright found that he was Yanni Yogi, out for revenge, and Yogi eventually confessed to his identity and the murder. The judge declared Edgeworth not guilty.

However, Edgeworth raised an objection, not to the verdict itself but to his innocence of murder. He admitted to killing his father 15 years prior. Wright knew something wasn't right, and defended him in the subsequent trial, which was set up immediately due to the statute of limitations placing the deadline for solving the DL-6 case on that day. Wright pointed to von Karma as the real killer; Miles Edgeworth had actually shot von Karma, and then von Karma had killed the unconscious Gregory Edgeworth in his rage. Miles Edgeworth was declared not guilty again. Wright, Edgeworth and everyone who had helped him celebrated the victory, with Larry Butz admitting to have stolen Edgeworth's lunch money all those years ago.

SL-9 resolutionEditEdit

Main article: Rise from the Ashes

Months later, during the annual award ceremony for the prosecutor's office, Edgeworth received the King of Prosecutors trophy for that year, though he considered the whole thing a waste of a productive day. Police chief Damon Gant later requested that Edgeworth transfer a piece of evidence. Edgeworth thought little of it at first. However, his car soon became a crime scene. Detective Bruce Goodman was murdered, apparently using Edgeworth's knife, and chief prosecutor Lana Skye was accused. Edgeworth was assigned to prosecute the case, but it was rumored that he only took the case to get himself promoted to chief prosecutor status.

Edgeworth faced Phoenix Wright in the subsequent trial. He informed the court that he was concerned only with the truth and not his perceived role in the courtroom. Demonstrating this, he picked out some contradictions in the witness's testimony even before Wright could. Later, Damon Gant appeared in the courtroom with more evidence, chastising Edgeworth for not finding it himself. He also informed the court of another "murder" of Bruce Goodman that had occurred in the police department evidence room simultaneously with the murder being discussed. Frustrated with his apparent failure to get the facts straight, Edgeworth requested another day of investigation while the courtroom erupted in an uproar. An inquiry into the matter determined that the fiasco had simply been the result of miscommunication. Wright, accompanied by Lana's sister Ema, came to visit Edgeworth, who gave Ema a fingerprinting set.

Officer Mike Meekins was arrested for the "other murder" and was called as a witness. However, after some clarification, it was revealed that the other "Goodman" was not actually Goodman but another detective from SL-9, Jake Marshall, who was desperate to re-investigate the SL-9 case. Jake Marshall made Lana admit that evidence from the SL-9 case was forged, causing another uproar. Edgeworth subsequently came under fire again from the police department. Even though he never knew about the forgeries, he still blamed himself, saying he should have looked into the evidence for which he was responsible. He wrote a letter of resignation, unable to forgive himself for the career he had led.

However, Edgeworth returned for the final trial day. Both he and Wright suspected that Gant was the real killer. Edgeworth offered to cooperate with Wright. Lana tried to get herself declared guilty, but Edgeworth refused this and called Ema to the stand, asking her about the SL-9 case, as she had witnessed the murder. It turned out that Edgeworth had only gotten half of the evidence list, and Wright had found the other half in Gant's office. An argumentative struggle followed between Wright, Edgeworth and Gant, and although Gant tried to implicate Ema as the killer in the SL-9 Incident, Wright came up with a clever trap to expose Gant as the real killer of both Goodman and Neil Marshall.

Gant told Edgeworth that they were the same, and that one day Edgeworth would understand why Gant had done what he had done. Nevertheless, he commented that "you can't go wrong" with Edgeworth and Wright around. This troubled Edgeworth; he still blamed himself for the results of the SL-9 case, and he feared he would become a lone vigilante like Gant.

Distressed and confused by all that had happened to him, Edgeworth wrote an apparent suicide note reading, "Prosecutor Miles Edgeworth chooses death." A bellboy discovered this note as Edgeworth left America to find out what being a prosecutor truly meant. The note left Wright to believe that Edgeworth really had committed suicide, and Wright decided that the Edgeworth he had known as a child had died long before, replaced by a coward who committed suicide over a win record. Meanwhile, Franziska von Karma, having heard of the defeats of Edgeworth and her father at Wright's hands, returned to America, hoping to prove herself superior to Edgeworth by beating Wright in court.

However, Edgeworth helped with Gumshoe's investigation into the death of Russell Berry by phone, advising the detective to order a surprise search of Acro's room. Franziska von Karma, who was the prosecutor for the trial, conducted the actual search, but she was furious when she found out that the search had inadvertently caused her to lose, though both Wright and Franziska were unaware of Edgeworth's involvement. After the trial, Edgeworth told Gumshoe not to be too harsh with Acro.

Farewell, My Turnabout
Main article: Farewell, My Turnabout

[10]Edgeworth's return to America.Added by Strabo412Edgeworth returned to Los Angeles, finally having figured out the meaning of his profession. He met a startled Wright and von Karma, neither of whom took his reappearance very well. He looked over the case in which both were involved and gave Wright some information about the case, since he was not acting as the prosecutor for it. The next day, however, von Karma was shot and had to be hospitalized; Edgeworth prosecuted in her place for the trial.

Much to Edgeworth's horror, Wendy Oldbag was once again a witness; otherwise, he had the trial under his complete control, preparing Adrian Andrews as a witness in advance. Wright, on the other hand, seemed particularly desperate to pin the murder on Andrews. Andrews tried to plead silence, prompting Edgeworth to reveal Andrews's dependency problems with other women to get her to testify. After court was adjourned, Edgeworth noticed a card Andrews was holding and became uncharacteristically furious. The card was a calling card from an assassin, Shelly de Killer, for whom an entire police division had been created to track his movements.

The truth was now clear: Engarde had hired de Killer to assassinate Corrida. Wright also told Edgeworth that de Killer was holding Maya Fey for ransom, explaining his desperation in court. Wright eventually found out that Engarde was guilty of the crime and that he had even recorded the murder to blackmail de Killer later. Edgeworth told Wright that he had left the country to find out what being a prosecuting attorney really meant, and in light of this revelation, it was now Wright's turn to figure out the meaning of his career.

De Killer accidentally gave away the fact that he was in Engarde Mansion, and Edgeworth and the police stormed the mansion to find that de Killer had already left with Fey. The trial resumed the next day; Edgeworth helped Wright stall the court while the police continued the chase. He eventually called de Killer as a witness by radio, but this backfired as he claimed Andrews had hired him. However, Franziska von Karma burst into the courtroom with evidence that allowed Wright to inform de Killer about Engarde's betrayal of him. De Killer swore a bloody vendetta against Engarde, and Engarde was found guilty. This would be the first and, as of Wright's last trial, only time Edgeworth would defeat Wright in court. However, seeing as Edgeworth and Wright were more working together to convict Engarde, it came across as a victory for both of them.

After Engarde's conviction, a confused von Karma left the country. Edgeworth met her at the airport and told her that he would not sympathize with her if she decided to quit her career. Edgeworth then left America himself to study international law. Ernest Amano, an old friend of Manfred von Karma, used his connections to finance Edgeworth's studies abroad.

Acting defense attorneyEditEdit

Main article: Bridge to the Turnabout

One year later, Edgeworth received a frantic phone call from Larry Butz, telling him to return to Los Angeles. After discovering an apparent murder scene at Hazakura Temple, Wright had fallen into the nearby Eagle River while trying to cross a burning bridge to try to save Maya Fey. He had been taken to a hospital with a bad cold but no major injuries. When Edgeworth met Wright, he was given Wright's magatama and his attorney's badge, wanting Edgeworth to defend Iris in the murder of Elise Deauxnim in his stead.

Godot was to prosecute, but he was missing, so Edgeworth pulled some strings to have Franziska von Karma and the judge from his first court appearance appointed for the trial. This was done to prevent himself being recognised as a prosecutor in court. He then conducted an investigation of the Hazakura Temple area and, in doing so, he began to empathize with Wright and the hardships he had to confront. In court, von Karma tried to crush Edgeworth, but drawing inspiration from how Wright defended his clients, Edgeworth pressed on and drew out vital information from the witnesses until court was suspended.

After the trial, he returned the reins to Phoenix Wright and assisted in the police investigation, getting Gumshoe to find the murder weapon. Iris's similarity in appearance from Edgeworth's first case drove him to re-investigate that case, bringing back memories from the "nightmare" trial that had ended with suicide. However, he was unconvinced that Dahlia Hawthorne, who Iris resembled, had anything to do with Deauxnim's death.

Maya Fey was apparently trapped in the Inner Temple, a temple used to train spirit mediums who visited Hazakura Temple, with a trick lock. Iris was called to remove this lock with Edgeworth guarding her, but during this process, an earthquake shook the area and Edgeworth's fear caused him to faint; his severe phobia gave Iris an opening to disappear, leaving five locks on the door to the Inner Temple. Iris was later found and she began to try to break the five locks.

Wright and the police soon discovered a garden near the Inner Temple, the true scene of the crime. Wright had a suspicion that Dahlia Hawthorne was somehow involved with the case, but Edgeworth informed him that Hawthorne had been executed for murder, so she could not have been involved. Nonetheless, Wright got Iris a not guilty verdict in court the following day. Edgeworth came to Wright's defendant lobby to congratulate him.

The smuggling ringEditEdit

Captivate 2009 trailer

After another month abroad, Edgeworth set off from Borginia back to Los Angeles on iFly Airlines Flight I-390. The plane entered into turbulence, and Edgeworth fainted from it. When he woke up, he opened the elevator in the plane to find the corpse of fellow passenger Akbey Hicks. Flight attendant Rhoda Teneiro discovered a shocked Edgeworth holding Hicks's wallet, and he became the prime suspect. After convincing Teneiro that he was innocent, he gained permission from the captain to investigate the murder under Teneiro's supervision until the plane touched down.

Edgeworth met Gumshoe and Franziska von Karma at Hope Springs Airport. Von Karma told him that she was working with Interpol to combat an international smuggling ring, and that Hicks had been an Interpol agent who had been investigating Flight I-390. As Edgeworth found more evidence to clear his name, the blame shifted to Teneiro. Edgeworth eventually investigated the plane's cargo hold as the true scene of the crime, and he found that a replica of a Borginian statue was being smuggled from Zheng Fa. Edgeworth eventually concluded that another flight attendant, Cammy Meele, who was the only one on the flight capable of reading Borginian, was a member of the smuggling ring, and that Hicks's snooping had forced her to kill him.

A kidnappingEditEdit

Main article: The Kidnapped Turnabout

The next day, Edgeworth was thrown into a kidnapping plot, in which Ernest Amano's son Lance Amano was kidnapped. As Edgeworth was delivering ransom money to the kidnappers at Gatewater Land, he was kidnapped himself. Kay Faraday, now much older, found Edgeworth and released him. Meanwhile, Interpol Agent Shi-Long Lang took over the investigation of the kidnapping, and the Criminal Affairs Department was assigned to help him, so Faraday filled Gumshoe's role as Edgeworth's investigative partner. Edgeworth locked horns with Lang on several occasions as Lang repeatedly tried to stymie Edgeworth's investigation, believing him to be just another corrupt prosecutor.

As Edgeworth ran into several familiar faces, the kidnapping investigation became a murder investigation, and it turned out that the kidnapping had been a hoax. When Lance fell under suspicion as the killer, Ernest stepped in and tried to obstruct the investigation by buying the haunted house, the scene of the crime. However, with the help of Faraday's Little Thief device, Edgeworth revealed the truth behind the murder and the kidnapping. The victim, Oliver Deacon, whose real name was Colin Devorae, had suddenly attacked Lance during the ransom delivery, and Lance had been forced to kill him. Ernest was arrested for obstruction of justice, and Lang revealed that Ernest had been his real target all along, for he was involved with the smuggling ring.

An intruderEditEdit

Main article: Turnabout Visitor

That night, Edgeworth returned to his office to find the body of detective Buddy Faith. He briefly encountered a mysterious gunman, who fled after the discovery. Officers soon arrived at the scene. Edgeworth started investigating with Gumshoe and found that court records from the KG-8 Incident had been taken. Edgeworth eventually discovered that the real killer was Buddy's partner, prosecutor Jacques Portsman, who had attempted to steal a video from Edgeworth's office. However, the identity of the other thief remained unknown. A black raven card was also found, which Edgeworth and Gumshoe recognized as the mark of the Yatagarasu.

A new creedEditEdit

Main article: Turnabout Ablaze

The next day, a Yatagarasu card appeared at the joint Allebahstian and Babahlese Embassies, indicating that the Yatagarasu had returned and was about to strike the embassies during a goodwill event. Edgeworth, Kay Faraday and Tyrell Badd attended the event in anticipation, and eventually several incidents occurred. The Babahlese Embassy experienced two fires; Manny Coachen was stabbed to death; the Yatagarasu's shadow appeared in the Allebahstian Embassy's rose garden; and a thief was killed in Allebahstian Ambassador Quercus Alba's office. Edgeworth gave himself the legal privilege to investigate these incidents by placing himself under von Karma's command, effectively making him a part of Interpol's investigation of the incidents.

Edgeworth eventually found himself confronting Shi-Long Lang's top subordinate, Shih-na. It turned out that Shih-na was Calisto Yew, and that she had assisted in the murders by setting the fires. Edgeworth then figured out that she had not been the only "Yatagarasu": the Yatagarasu had actually been a three-person operation involving Tyrell Badd and Byrne Faraday, though Yew had been a mole working for the smuggling ring. Badd then gave Edgeworth the stolen KG-8 evidence that Badd had taken from Ernest Amano, as well as the directives card that had ordered Coachen to kill Cece Yew.

Edgeworth and Lang then confronted Quercus Alba as the culprit in both of the murders, as well as the leader of the smuggling ring. Edgeworth had a crisis of conscience concerning presenting Badd's evidence, which was illegal. However, Edgeworth decided that this apparent limitation of the law was humanly imposed, and that he would have to go beyond this limitation. Cornered, Alba invoked his right as an ambassador to stand trial in his own country, but Lang called the imperial household of Allebahst and used the evidence that Edgeworth had found to convince the household to strip Alba of his ambassadorship. After a long and grueling argument and with the help of Gumshoe, Faraday, Larry Butz and Wendy Oldbag, Edgeworth finally took down the leader of the smuggling ring and brought him to the American courts to pay for his crimes.

Return to Gourd LakeEditEdit

Main article: Turnabout Target {C}[13]Arriving at the scene of the crime.Added by JmcdunceA week later, Teikun Ō, the president of Zheng Fa, arrived at Gourd Lake where he greeted the cheering crowd and gave a speech thanking the country for their help in taking down the smuggling ring. The speech was abruptly cut when the president was shot. Edgeworth was called to investigate, with the assistance of detective Gumshoe. The Chief Prosecutor asked for him personally to solve the case. In the crowd, they also met Kay Faraday who had been watching the speech. She provided multiple photos of the incident.

Edgeworth confronted the main suspect, an ice cream salesman by the name of John Doe. The suspicion soon shifted on the reporter Mikiko Hayami due to her incriminating tape recording of the incident. However, they were interrupted by Manosuke Naitō, the bodyguard second-in-command. He brought news that the president was safe and the head bodyguard Gai Tojiro got killed instead. He also wanted the Zheng Fa police to take over the investigation but Doe dropped his disguise, revealing himself to be de Killer. He insisted that Naitō take them to the president's private jet and let Edgeworth investigate. De Killer, having tried to assassinate the president previously, tried to summon the president by threatening Naitō but he fled when he realized he wouldn't come.

The president himself appeared afterwards. He wanted to take away the investigative authority from Edgeworth. However, he convinced him the extraterritoriality right didn't apply and then revealed that the Gourd Lake assassination attempt on Ō's life was faked, as Ō shamefully admitted. Naitō objected that there still was the matter of Tojiro's death, blaming Hayami for it. In the confrontation, Edgeworth proved Naitō himself was the murderer, killing Tojiro out of jealousy.

The defense attorney, judge, and prosecutorEditEdit

Main article: The Imprisoned Turnabout

Two days later, Edgeworth visited the detention center to see Naitō as he was assigned to prosecute his case. Unfortunately, Naitō himself was murdered in the prison. At the crime scene, he met Tateyuki Shigaraki, a former assistant of his father and owner of Edgeworth Law Offices, who was to be Naitō's defense attorney. He was very bitter about Edgeworth's "betrayal". Their investigation was cut short by the appearance of the judge Hakari Mikagami and Yumihiko Ichiyanagi, a rookie prosecutor. Mikagami told Edgeworth he was under the scrutiny of the Prosecutorial Investigation Committee for boarding the president's plane, which was protected by extraterritorial rights, and even ordered search of the president's officials. She also said Ichiyanagi was to take his place as the prosecutor in charge of the case, meaning that Gumshoe was under his command. Edgeworth reluctantly agreed.

Still determined to find the truth, Edgeworth became Shigaraki's assistant. He helped to clear the name of his client, Sōta Sarushiro, a monkey trainer working for the Berry Big Circus and Naitō's childhood friend. Sarushiro and Regina Berry were called to preform an animal show as part of the prison's special therapy. During his investigation, Edgeworth confronted multiple inmates, among them Ryōken Hōinbō, a dangerous assassin whose case he prosecuted, and he revealed a prison escape plan. In the end, he discovered that the murderer was Marī Miwa, the prison director herself. Apparently she was threatened by Hōinbō and she mistook Naitō for one of his underlings, so she killed him before he could do the same to her.

IS-7 resolutionEditEdit

Main article: The Inherited Turnabout

Some days later, Edgeworth and Shigaraki arrived at the 12 Constellations Art Gallery. Since Shigaraki regained his faith in him, he told Edgeworth about the IS-7 Incident which happened there 18 years ago. The case was left unsolved because of DL-6, which was directly caused by IS-7. Shigaraki helped Gregory investigate the murder case of Isaku Hyōdō, a relatively unknown pastry chef. The main suspect was Issei Tenkai, a celebrity chef and the star of Dansweets. With detective Badd's assistance they found out that Hyōdō's body was missing, which meant that the autopsy results were faked. Gregory confronted Manfred von Karma over this fact, which eventually lead to his first and only penalty in court. But von Karma interrogated Tenkai day and night until he confessed to accomplice in murder. Gregory died later that day and the case went cold. {C}[14]Edgeworth and Shigaraki.Added by JmcdunceThe reminiscing was interrupted when they found out that someone attempted to poison Yutaka Kazami, coincidentally one of the witnesses of IS-7. Since he was found at the scene, the suspect was Laurice Deauxnim, who once again returned to his artistic career. What is more, they found a preserved body in the fountain which was identified as Hyōdō's. Edgeworth confronted Mikagami and Ichiyanagi again. He proved Butz's innocence and found out that the person behind the poisoning and the body was Tsukasa Oyashiki, the director of the gallery and former program partner of Tenkai. However, he also revealed the truth behind her actions. She wanted to lure Kazami and she set a trap for him, knowing that he was the real perpetrator of IS-7. Edgeworth convinced him that he had nothing to lose by testifying since the case happened more than 15 years ago. When Kazami used this as his last defense, Edgeworth crushed him by saying that the statue of limitations still hadn't run out, because Kazami fled from the country after the incident, prolonging it by three additional years. Thereby, he solved IS-7 and proved Tenkai's innocence. Oyashiki was still charged for manipulating the crime scene, but she was glad that Tenkai would finally go free.


Main article: The Forgotten Turnabout {C}[15]Edgeworth being evaluated.Added by JmcdunceTwo days later, Edgeworth was being evaluated by the Committee for acts of "aggressive investigations". The next day, while waiting for the results with Gumshoe in his office, he found out that Faraday was found injured in the Big Tower and that she suffered severe amnesia. When he tried to help her regain her memories, the group got caught up in an another murder. A defense attorney by the name of Tsubasa Kagome was killed in the Committee's deliberation room. Faraday immediately became the main suspect, because of the letters she apparently exchanged with the victim and the promise notebook which was found next to her. When Edgeworth tried to defend her, Mikagami and Bansai Ichiyanagi, the Committee's leader, threatened him that he would lose his badge if he kept resisting. Edgeworth responded by placing his badge on the table and resigning as a prosecutor if it would prevent him from finding the truth. Faraday felt guilty about this and ran away.

Later that day, Shigaraki approached him in his office and offered him help with Faraday's case. They found her on the Big Tower observation deck, being searched for by the police as a fugitive. Together, the group found a hidden evidence room in the 51st floor of the building. There Edgeworth met Lotta Hart who told them about a secret auction she witnessed when hidden in the room. An elevator brought them down to the deliberation room where they were discovered by Ichiyanagi and the police. Franziska von Karma briefly interrupted them and provided her own version of what happened in the case. Mikagami and Bansai intervened during the confrontation. They took Faraday who was convinced of her own guilt and arrested Edgeworth for helping a fugitive and illegal investigation. {C}[16]Returning the notebook.Added by JmcdunceThe next day, Edgeworth was visited first briefly by Mikagami, who wanted to know the reason behind his reckless actions, and then by Faraday with Bansai Ichiyanagi. Edgeworth talked with Bansai about the reason behind her arrest and he got him to admit that he forced Faraday's arrest, even though he knew she was not the real criminal. Afterwards, Edgeworth was called in front of the Committee again. In the confrontation with Mikagami, he pointed out the manipulation of the autopsy results. He then discovered that it was the fault of the coroner's granddaughter, the nurse Tōko Mutō and then proceeded to reveal that she was an accomplice in the incident. With her testimony and the help of Mikagami, who turned against Bansai when he wanted to end the cross-examination, Edgeworth managed to prove that Bansai was both the man behind the illegal auction and the murderer of Kagome. With the case solved and Faraday's innocence proved, Mikagami returned the promise notebook which was held as evidence. Edgeworth then gave it to Faraday which helped her gain her memories back. She told him about how she was drugged and abducted from Gourd Lake to the top of the Big Tower.

However, the case was still not over. Edgeworth received a call from Shelly de Killer via the transceiver in the evidence room. He pointed the presence of a mastermind behind all the events.

The mastermindEditEdit

Main article: The Grand Turnabout

On the same day, Edgeworth and Faraday met Penny Nichols in front of the building, asking them for help. The body of Teikun Ō was found at the Global Studios filming set, with Shi-Long Lang next to it, devastated. After some preliminary investigation, it seemed like the body was crushed under a broken off Borumosu head. Edgeworth also met Shimon Aizawa, a teenage actor who starred in the movie. He then briefly confronted Lang, who accused Hakari Mikagami. She was in the trial of Miwa, so the group left the scene. The prosecutor on the case was von Karma, facing Tateyuki Shigaraki. The trial didn't go far because the evidence against Miwa was missing and because of Mikagami's unnatural behavior. Edgeworth found out that Aizawa, who was her adopted son was kidnapped and Bansai Ichiyanagi threatened to kill him if he wouldn't get the verdict he wanted, so the group went looking after him. In Bansai's garage, Edgeworth discovered that Bansai had accidentally kidnapped his own son, Yumihiko Ichiyanagi.

Because Edgeworth had snapped at him in the previous case, Gumshoe acted uneasy and avoided him. Edgeworth apologized, and asked for Gumshoe's forgiveness with a bow. Gumshoe forgave Edgeworth and helped him find Aizawa, allowing Mikagami to continue the trial of Miwa unbiased. In the meantime, Yumihiko found the evidence against Miwa which his father threw away and gathered the strength to face him in court. Lang then announced that the case still wasn't over and continued with his accusation of Mikagami, creating his own theory that she and Aizawa were accomplices. Edgeworth managed to debunk his theories and instead shifted the focus that the murder may have had something to do with the incident that tied Bansai and Miwa that Lang mentioned earlier in court - the SS-5 Incident. With the help of Faraday's Little thief, they recreated the orphanage where the incident happened in the filming lot. Edgeworth solved the incident and then proceeded to confront Ryōken Hōinbō, who had recently escaped from jail and unexpectedly turned up right in front of them. Edgeworth also pointed out the identity of the mastermind which Hōinbō tried to hide - Sōta Sarushiro.

Edgeworth then confronted Sarushiro in the circus, who revealed his true self. Thanks to a letter which arrived that day, he managed to prove a connection between him, Hōinbō and Naitō, thereby tying him to Naitō's murder since Miwa was manipulated into thinking he was associated with the assassin. Sarushiro told him that he wanted revenge, blaming Naitō for the death of his father, Hyōdō. Edgeworth revealed that he made a mistake - he was actually the son of the killer, Kazami. This briefly shocked Sarushiro, but he laughed it off and admitted he was the mastermind of almost every incident in the previous cases. However, he denied murdering the president. Edgeworth eventually proved that it was indeed Sarushiro who killed him, on the same day he abducted Faraday. The connection was finally proved by the traces of the president's flowers left behind in Sarushiro's balloon, finally bringing him to justice.

[19]Edgeworth's choice.Added by JmcdunceA day had passed after he had brought down the real mastermind. Edgeworth was at the Committee's deliberation room, next to the Statue of Themis. Gumshoe, Kay, Tateyuki, and Mikagami met up with him. Edgeworth, told them how he was reflecting on what had happened and how it made him decide his path. He realized that his goal is finding the truth as a prosecutor, because he understood Sarushiro would never have done all that if his faith in the law system wasn't crushed by corrupt individuals like Bansai Ichiyanagi and Miwa. With that, Mikagami gave him his badge back.

The reason for my eagerness is my want to pursue the truth, and my want to believe in the strength of those who use the power of the law for good. As someone who has chosen to live my life as a prosecutor... that is my new creed.
Turnabout Ablaze

Edgeworth is generally seen as a snob due to his skeptical, ruthless and generally aloof nature that differs little between everyday life and the courtroom. However, he has a strong sense of right and wrong, and acts only in ways that he believes are fair and just. He is also shown to care deeply for those he considers friends, going to great lengths to assist them when he believes they require it. For example, he chartered a private jet to come to Wright's aid when the defense attorney was in desperate need of his aid. Generally, Edgeworth is calm and level-headed when talking with people, although he does tend to come off as a little cold and, sometimes, rather condescending. Edgeworth is also very insecure in general and hates showing his weaknesses.

In court, Edgeworth usually has the trial precisely planned out, ensuring his victory. Because of this, he tends to become easily ruffled with anything that does not conform to his plan. In particular, he tries to stick to standard courtroom proceedings, trying to make the witnesses state their names and professions, although he regularly has a great deal of difficulty with this task due to the often rather eccentric characters called as witnesses in his cases.

Miles Edgeworth
Yes. Unease... and uncertainty.
Phoenix Wright
Aren't those kind of necessary?
Turnabout Samurai’’

Before facing Phoenix Wright in court, Edgeworth had a perfect win record. He was relentless in his in-court tactics, doing almost anything to maintain his win record. Despite this, he still maintained a sort of moral code and never intentionally used forged evidence. His rationale was that he could not possibly know with certainty whether any defendant was guilty or not. He despised criminals, so getting every defendant declared guilty was his way of guaranteeing that the criminals he encountered got what they deserved. Ultimately, however, he was driven by his selfish desire to win.

Edgeworth's encounters with Phoenix Wright changed him radically. He left America to make sense of everything that had happened to him, and to figure out what being a prosecutor truly meant. After his return, Edgeworth became a valuable friend to Wright, challenging him to figure out what it truly meant to be a defense attorney in one of Wright's darkest and most vulnerable moments. He would even come to defend one of Wright's clients for him when Wright was temporarily incapacitated.

After spending some time pondering what being a prosecutor meant, Edgeworth decided that his win record no longer mattered and that the truth was what really mattered. To this end, he developed an extreme determination to find the truth, at one point callously revealing the background of a witness to get her to testify. In fact, Edgeworth's pursuit of the truth above all else has, on more than one occasion, caused him to join in on cross-examinations against his own witnesses, actually teaming up with the defending attorney in order to pry the truth from the witness. Edgeworth's attitude toward investigations is subtly different from Wright's in that Edgeworth is more focused on the truth and letting the rightful consequences for wrongful suspects come about naturally from the truth. Nonetheless, Edgeworth has drawn inspiration from Wright's audacity in hopeless situations in several of his own tight spots.


Dick Gumshoe
... Y'know... I don't know what to believe anymore. Sure, Mr. Edgeworth's human like you or me. Still... I get the feeling that if he'd done something wrong, he wouldn't go hiding it. That's just the kind of guy he is. Why can't anyone else see that?
Turnabout Goodbyes

Much of Edgeworth's personality can be traced back to his upbringing. The DL-6 Incident left him with a fear of earthquakes and elevators, as well as recurring nightmares about the incident, and the thought that he might have been the killer haunted him for 15 long years. The nightmares ceased to occur after the incident was resolved. Edgeworth's reactions to earthquakes, or similar circumstances such as air turbulence, range from shortness of breath from a tremor to sobbing and curling up into a ball or even fainting, which are probably involuntary reactions based on what had happened during DL-6.

Edgeworth has a certain lack of social skills and tact, possibly due to his upbringing by the hardly empathic Manfred von Karma. His expressions of jubilation come out rather awkwardly, and he prefers to be alone in general and resists other people's attempts to get involved with his problems. His awkwardness is to the point that if uncomfortable enough, he will flee the scene, as shown by his reaction to Kay and Gumshoe trying to take a picture of him. Even so, Edgeworth does care about his friends. When Franziska von Karma was shot, he sent her to the Hotti Clinic. When Edgeworth asked Gumshoe to take care of Kay, Kay said that Edgeworth acted like a father.

When someone looks at him, he glares back, which intimidates most people; he was taught as a child to do so. Edgeworth does respect his colleagues greatly, but he is not always aware that he is being cruel or even that he is glaring. In addition, the revelation that Misty Fey was a fraud caused Edgeworth to become an extreme skeptic of the occult, even after she was revealed not to have been a fraud after all.

Edgeworth has a good number of admirers, the main one being Wendy Oldbag, who calls him "Edgey-poo" amongst other unwanted pet names. Bikini also finds Edgeworth "handsome" and forgives him easily. Rhoda Teneiro and Lauren Paups also seem to have been attracted to him, feelings of which Edgeworth himself was largely, if not entirely, unaware. Indeed, Detective Gumshoe commented on Edgeworth's apparent ignorance of his own appeal to women, prompting Edgeworth to remark, "D-Do I really inspire this sort of frothing desire from the female masses?" Shi-Long Lang occasionally referred to Edgeworth as "pretty-boy", although this is far more likely to just be a way for him to irritate the prosecutor. Franziska von Karma once called him her cute little subordinate, but she was most likely teasing him.

On rewards and accomplishmentsEditEdit

As a child, Edgeworth was seen to be a very bright pupil and was praised for his various activities in school. However, he broke down into tears when he failed at a task (such as his attempt at origami),[1] and went to great lengths to ensure that his next attempt was successful. However, Edgeworth has generally hated the limelight, often trying to credit other people or circumstances for his accomplishments and seeing no value in awards or trophies. Edgeworth has insisted on some occasions (notably Will Powers's murder trial) that the truth was bound to come out, and that he was merely a vessel through which the court came upon the truth.

Home lifeEditEdit

Being a very successful prosecutor who was raised by another very successful prosecutor, Edgeworth is quite well-off. He drives a red sports car to work and it is insinuated that he lives in a mansion, and this shows in his high-class tendencies. Edgeworth is believed to own a large dog named Pesu, to which Edgeworth has a deep emotional attachment, talking to the dog and even sometimes putting his cravat around its neck.

Steel SamuraiEditEdit

Although he generally doesn't like to admit it, Edgeworth is an avid Steel Samurai fan, even displaying a Steel Samurai figure in his office despite not being a fan of the sender, and seeming to know quite a bit on the subject. Despite acknowledging that it is a show meant for children, he enjoys the series's plot and high production values. When Will Powers, the actor who played the Steel Samurai, was acquitted of murder, Edgeworth told Powers that he was a fan of his work, although Wright believed that he was lying. During one of his flights back home, he was secretly reading a Steel Samurai manga hidden between the pages of one of his law books.

The nature of his admiration of the show became less subtle during the Allebahstian and Babahlese Embassy goodwill event, in which he got an autograph from the Steel Samurai. He was crushed when he found Butz under the helmet, later telling him, "You will never be the true Steel Samurai!". While investigating the event, Edgeworth revealed a rather extensive knowledge of The Steel Samurai, for which Franziska von Karma was all too eager to mock him. During his battle of wits against Quercus Alba, analogies were repeatedly made between Alba and the Evil Magistrate, the Steel Samurai's archnemesis. Edgeworth did not resent the implication that he was the "Steel Samurai" of the analogy.

  • The name "Miles" comes from the Latin word for a soldier.
  • Edgeworth may come from "edge of a sword", just like his Japanese name "Mitsurugi" (御剣), which contains the kanji of sword. This may be a reference to Edgeworth having a sharp mind and being a "worthy" opponent for Wright. Shu Takumi has said that he wanted to convey a feeling of "stillness, which can cut you down if you show a moment's weakness".
  • "Reiji" (怜侍) comes from the kanji for "cleverness".
  • "Miles" may come from the road that he took to become a prosecutor.


As Pop, he appears to be a miniature lion with a bushy fox-like tail. His fur is mainly pale yellow in color, with a pale orange mane and tail. Like Candy, he has blue heart-shaped markings near his eyes, and his mane is styled such that it covers his right eye from view. His ears stick out from his mane and lie curled up against his head, though it has been shown that he can uncurl them at will.

his normal form is a rich man like suit

  • The younger Miles Edgeworth's suit bears a strong resemblance to Manfred von Karma's suit design.

Character shiftEditEdit

According to Shu Takumi,[2] Edgeworth was difficult to develop as a character compared to Wright. Edgeworth's character really came together once Takumi decided he would be rich. In the original game, Takumi designed Edgeworth to be an unlikable and tragic character. This is seen in Manfred von Karma raising Edgeworth to be a prosecutor and then prosecuting him for murder, just to have his revenge against Gregory Edgeworth. After the first game, when Takumi saw a comic depicting Edgeworth liking the Steel Samurai, he decided that a more likable Edgeworth would be "cuter", and so Edgeworth was fleshed out into the valuable friend and ally seen in Farewell, My Turnabout and Bridge to the Turnabout.And he is like the male sibblings in the pretty cure seris
