Phoenix Wright Preview (No Spoilers)

There’s a new defense attorney in town and his name is Phoenix Wright. Well, technically he’s Mia Fey’s assistant, but he’s eager and ready. The two of them are ready to tackle whatever case comes their way, and the first one involves a salesman, a murder, and a goofball boyfriend. What does this case have in store for Mia and Phoenix Wright? You’ll have to play Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney to find out.

Miles Bio

Seiyuu Name: Tatsuro Iwamoto, Eiji Takemoto

Miles Edgeworth is Phoenix Wright’s childhood friend and inspiration to become a defense attorney. As children, Edgeworth, along with Larry Butz, defended Phoenix Wright from being prosecuted as a criminal for stealing Edgeworth’s lunch money without sufficient evidence. It was at this time that Edgeworth aspired to be a defense attorney like his father, Gregory Edgeworth.
Throughout his childhood, Miles Edgeworth has proven his talent in many activities with humility as he cares not for rewards or accolades. At some point in his childhood, Edgeworth was taken to Germany to study law with Manfred von Karma where he met von Karma’s daughter, Franziska.

Miles Highlights

1. Someone to Aspire to Be

Something about Miles Edgeworth is how notable he is in people’s lives. Edgeworth holds a lot of importance to a lot of people, even when he acts like a jerk to them in most instances. In the first Ace Attorney game, Phoenix Wright is inspired by Edgeworth to become a defense attorney, although at this point in time, Edgeworth changes his aspirations. Despite being such a trivial thing, Phoenix feels a lot of gratitude towards Edgeworth and it is the incident that they experienced as children that has shaped Phoenix’s entire life.

Then there’s Franziska von Karma. Despite being on the lines similar to siblings, Franziska at first seems to express great dislike towards Miles Edgeworth and wishes nothing more than to show him up by beating Phoenix Wright as Edgeworth was unable to do. This culminates into the final moment in Justice for All when Franziska breaks down crying like a child stating that she has been watching Edgeworth’s back all this time and wanted to be noticed. It’s so cute.

2. Daddy’s Boy

Despite Mile Edgeworth’s hard exterior, he has a side to him that’s just adorable. Who would have thought that the hardened prosecutor, Miles Edgeworth, is in fact a daddy’s boy? From a young age, Edgeworth has only ever aspired to follow in the footsteps of his father. That is, until one fateful day when his father is killed and justice was not served. Since then, Edgeworth has been harboring a great deal of unhappiness in his heart over the loss of his father and the lack of justice.

It is this lack of justice and his love for his father that drives Edgeworth to follow von Karma to Europe in order to gain the knowledge needed to become a prosecutor so that criminals could no longer just walk free from the punishment they deserved. That is when we meet Miles Edgeworth in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, who has given up on believing people are innocent until proven guilty. While it may sound sad, Edgeworth’s entire drive revolves around the love and admiration he had for his father, and the feeling of loss and civil injustice served.

3. Truth Seeker

At the end of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Miles Edgeworth turns a new leaf. Rather than assume all defendants are guilty, Edgeworth wants more and aims to seek for the truth above all else. When it came to the VonKarma trial, Edgeworth stood against his mentor and stood with Phoenix Wright in order to find out the truth of his father’s death. Oh, the betrayal! Edgeworth didn’t just want justice, although it was much deserved, nor did he want to ruin von Karma’s name for the sake of doing so. No, Edgeworth wanted to know the truth that von Karma distorted when Edgeworth was a child.

In Rise From the Ashes, Edgeworth is forced to be the prosecutor during the case involving the SL-9 incident. In this case, Damon Gant is put on the stand to defend his case as a murderer. However, since he is the District Chief of Police in Los Angeles, Damon Grant has a lot of leeway, plus, he’s got a lot of stuff on Edgeworth that makes it difficult for Edgeworth to question Damon Grant and ensure he gets his just desserts. Then Damon Grant pleads the fifth which means he will not say anything to incriminate himself. The downside is that Damon Grant can also not defend himself. So, despite the risk of losing his job, Edgeworth teams up with Phoenix Wright to take Damon Grant down and expose him as the killer and blackmailer that he is. This essentially exposes all of the corruption within the department and really puts Edgeworth at a disadvantage, but this is how Edgeworth pursues the truth!

4. Lady’s Man

Now, if you read the quote, you’ll know that Edgeworth is a man who is popular with the ladies. While it is a laugh what Edgeworth deems as fashionable, it is hard to deny how popular Edgeworth is with the masses, even considering his initial role as an antagonist. Miles Edgeworth is popular with characters in game as well as real people all around the world.
Just look at Wendy Oldbag who absolutely adores Edgeworth to the point that even Edgeworth himself is turned off. He absolutely hates dealing with her because of how much she gets flustered over him. Then there’s Sister Bikini who has batted her little lashes at our dear Miles Edgeworth. Clearly, he’s a catch.
5. Someone You Can Trust
Lastly, and most importantly, Miles Edgeworth is someone that you can trust. He’s the type of person you put all of your faith in. That’s why Dick Gumshoe continues to follow Edgeworth despite Edgeworth’s rather gruff attitude towards him. Edgeworth even threatens Gumshoe’s paycheck every now and again to the point that Gumshoe can hardly afford to eat cup ramen every day! Still, Gumshoe has complete faith in Edgeworth and his abilities, which is why he continues to take all of Edgeworth’s orders.

There’s also characters like Phoenix Wright and Kay Faraday who trust Edgeworth without a doubt. Phoenix Wright trusts Miles Edgeworth to always pursue the truth and help him when he needs it most. Phoenix is constantly referencing that memory from long ago when it comes down to assessing Edgeworth’s trustworthiness. Likewise, Kay Faraday did not trust Miles Edgeworth at first but when Edgeworth helped Kay to seek justice for her father, she knew she could trust him completely.

Despite being a prosecutor, Edgeworth is on the side of good and wants nothing more but to ensure that justice is properly served.
