Character: Apollo Justice (Ace Attorney) App! Beware spoilers.
Age: 24
Appearance: boom and boom look at this small nerd

QUIRKS? Apollo is a very yelly boy and sometimes I will spam lawyer features like red or blue text, I am sorry. But more importantly, he is a walking lie detector. He can tell when people are outright lying via seeing how tense they are and catching unconscious twitches they make. Basically he's just really good at reading poker tells.

Feel free to comment to this post if you rather him NOT notice your tells, or if you have specific ones you'd like to tell me about! In general tho I don't use this quirk of his without player permission.

Permissions?? Consider this blanket permission to punch, kick, spit, stab, and otherwise hurt Apollo, be it for serious business or comedic effect, I do not care.

Kissing? SHIPS?? Woah there champ take a lawyer out for coffee first. Also why would you, look at him. That said, I am down, but I am very slow burn and Apollo is very hard to win over at times.

PEAK PLAY TIMES: 7pm-11pm EST! I am at work/commuting generally between 8am and 6pm weekdays. On Weekends I make poor decisions and can stay up til stupid o'clock at night!

Contact: I'm rileyboi @ plurk and my plurk is public! I DO NOT get pings however, so just flag me down in a recent plurk and I will see you.

If you need something answered/my attention for something ASAP and it's in the middle of the week? Shoot me an email at masterofmon at gmail. I only occasionally check plurk on my phone through the day, but I can check email fairly regularly.


Play style I'll usually adapt to whatever but I lean toward dialogue/action spam, but will gladly switch to short prose if that's easier to some folks! Just let me know. As of right now I am generally just a 'few comments a day' kind of rper, but every now and then I will boomerang too.

Idk what else LETS ENJOYING FUN.

⌈ CHARACTER SECTION ⌉

Character: Apollo Justice
Age: 24
Canon: Ace Attorney
Canon Point: Post Spirit of Justice

Background: boom

Personality:
Apollo is a walking contradiction of conflicting emotions and ideals. He is passionate about lawyering, ready to take on whatever comes his way, but he also has a very cautious, logical approach to new situations, wary about getting too in over his head.

When we first meet him, Apollo is loud, enthusiastic, and eager to prove Phoenix Wright's innocence! As a rookie, of course he was nervous, but he still tried to flip any argument back in the prosecution's face, and listened to any advice both Phoenix or Kristoph (his mentors) had to offer with great attentiveness. He's very big on making good first impressions, though this ends up getting him made fun. He appears optimistic and hopeful, thinking everything will always turn out alright.

But that's only in the first case. He wins the case but his debut ends in disaster and leaving Apollo unemployed, rightfully a little jaded at how events went down, and it's reflected in his cynical attitude. This doesn't stop him from being enthusiastic about the job itself, though! He is eager to keep learning about the trade (jumping at the chance to attend a lawyering seminar), and shows pride in flashing his Attorney's badge. Apollo will also eagerly dig through trash for clues, or turn a blind eye as he and his assistant do a little breaking and entering to gather evidence. Though his attitude has been tainted with pessimism now, he's still more than eager to help others out and is still quite passionate about his career choice. This is also shown in his readiness to aid new co worker, Athena Cykes, as a senior to show her the ropes. He also continues to shout I'M FINE!! in order to psyche himself up and get him through rougher times.

Speaking of being cynical, Apollo's mind is usually running snarky commentary about what's going on around him. Apollo is very much the straight man of the series--he's not nearly as extreme or wacky as other characters, and can be seen as a stick in the mud or offering some sarcastic advice. Even in his first case, when the prosecution asks him to point out the math error in his argument, Apollo thinks it's ridiculous the old man can't do basic math. . .but of course he doesn't say it out loud. He tries very hard to put up a professional front, but in truth Apollo is judging something about most people at all times. The more comfortable he is with someone, however, the more likely he'll be snippy to their face. (For example, when Phoenix opts to take Athena on a case with him instead of Apollo, Phoenix asks for his thoughts, and Apollo smiles and quips "You REALLY don't want to know what I'm thinking.")He's also very prone to spouting a little bit of harmless dark humor, such as when he suggests that "People Park" change its name to "We Kill People Park," due to the crime scene.

And while he gets plenty of ridiculous moments (presenting panties, getting attacked in the face by a hawk), in general Apollo tends to be the one deadpanning at all the craziness surrounding him, adding his commentary on it. He also gets picked on quite a bit by every single person in the series, and even some witnesses harass him by saying he looks like a demon due to his hair style. Often times when Apollo tries to speak up against this or shoot his own witty snark back at them, he will be chided and told "he's not cool enough to do that." While annoying, Apollo seems more than used to it by now, and just quietly suffers through this treatment. He is far from a doormat though, and he will put his foot down with a yell if the teasing ever goes too far.

Two other conflicting key traits of Apollo are his preference for logic while being quite an expressive, emotional person. Apollo is all about FACTS and usually refuses to make a judgement call without having all the details to study properly. He tends to turn his nose up at explanations that involve hollow bluffs or jokingly include the supernatural, and will rattle his brain until he can make a situation make sense in a rational way. Many of his cases seem impossible or extremely convoluted, but Apollo is always able to dig until he's found a sound, logical explanation for everything. This logic also applies to simpler decisions--when a high profile mayor needs a defense attorney, Trucy volunteers Apollo, but instead of accepting, he suggests that the mayor find someone with more experience to represent him. It's not that he doesn't have confidence in his abilities, it's simply that Apollo realized how big a deal this was and thought it was proper to have a more seasoned attorney on board. It isn't until he learns of the circumstance between the mayor and the daughter that he then sympathizes and finally agrees to help out.

Which leads into him being very expressive and empathetic! Despite his logical, professional and sometimes grouchy attitude, under that frown is a waterfall of emotions. The mere thought of Trucy being kidnapped makes him break down in tears, and he greatly sympathizes with his clients who have lost/are in danger of losing their parents. He can become flustered very easily, whether it's due to someone complimenting him in court, or someone riling him up because of a mistake he's made. His emotional outbursts aren't always so funny either, as he punches Phoenix in the face for lying to him--and there are quite a few witnesses he'd love to punch in the face and/or strangle. Apollo wears his emotions on his sleeves, and it's very easy to tell how he's feeling whether his mouth is running or not. This also comes into play with how he interacts with people; it's very easy to tell how close he is with someone by judging how stand offish he is vs him happily interacting with acquaintances.

Apollo is never immediately trusting. There are few people that manage to gain his favor right away--the exceptions are Trucy Wright, due to excessive exposure and her becoming his partner in not-quite-crime almost immediately, and his late best friend, Clay. It is worth noting that no one even knew about Clay's existence until the second case of Dual Destinies--Apollo keeps most of his private life just that, private. Since that crazy first trial, Apollo's trust is shot. Though he cleared Phoenix's name, it's revealed Phoenix forged actual fake evidence and tricked Apollo into presenting it. Apollo responds to this by punching Phoenix right in the face, and refuses to come work for him for two solid months. He is unemployed during this time as well, due to getting Kristoph convicted, and he only caves and comes to work for Wright after sheer desperation. It still takes a good while for him to warm up to Phoenix after that.

That trust is strained even more when his new co-worker is suspected of murdering his best friend. Apollo is not the type to have blind faith without doubt. A root cause of this can be found in Spirit of Justice, as Apollo was sent away from his father-figure for fifteen years, causing him to assume he was lied to and abandoned. He grew up trying to forget his childhood, and even once they are finally reunited, it takes extreme measures for Apollo to open up and even begin to think about repairing the long lost relationship.

That all said, Apollo does want to trust and form bonds with people, and it's why it's such a struggle for him to find a balance between going with his heart vs going with his head. It's not impossible to gain Apollo's trust, it's just a long, rocky road. Once it's gained, however, the shrimp's ready to defend them to the bitter end (For example, he continues to lawyer at gunpoint for said father-figure once they settle everything).

As for some less savory traits, when it comes to brutal honesty, Apollo is your man. No matter the situation, Apollo's number one goal is The Truth, and he'll do all he can to find it. Apollo can be quite aggressive in an argument if he is totally confident in his words, and he usually will not let up unless deterred by hard facts. As shown by him getting his former boss convicted, and pushing hard for his co-worker's guilt, Apollo will not hesitate to throw someone to the wolves if the evidence is stacked against them.

Apollo will also go to more extreme ends against his better judgment in order to get a better grasp of the situation--for example, while investigating his friend's death, he went to talk to one of the witnesses, Aura Blackquill, knowing she had an extreme bias of the situation. He also doesn't seem all that bothered when she holds an entire station of people hostage, as it got him a chance to speak on the witness stand himself. He obviously doesn't condone it, but he uses the moment for what it is. Apollo will always and forever lean toward the more lawful side of things, but by now he's fully aware there are many others who don't feel the same way, and he'll take advantage of it.

TL;DR Apollo has a LOT going on in his head when it comes to trying to sort things out, and balancing his fiery, passionate personality with his professional, logical side. But despite all this, he is also still very much looking for guidance and acceptance. After everything that's happened to him, he is still looking for his own path and goes so far as to leave the agency for good to help with a greater cause. While he may not have the utmost confidence in himself at times, being a lawyer that's willing to give weight to both emotions and logic, the career path suits him just fine.


Abilities:
Apollo is a walking lie detecter, having special (genetic) eyes that allow him to basically zoom in on a person and see sometimes unconscious near invisible twitches and tells they give off when lying or nervous. This is helped by his bracelet, which is made of a special alloy that contracts when sensing tension. It helps Apollo focus on when to zoom in instead of walking around looking crazy all the time.

That said, he doesn't always use it, however, usually saving it for serious conversations or courtroom antics, and characters seem to have no trouble telling little lies around him without getting caught. Basically it will not work without player permission at all.


Alignment: Piphron! It fits the best with Apollo's conflicting ideals, and because most of his other emotions (sadness/anger esp) are evoked from this trust issues.

Other: ??? Uh I guess he has his bracelet still.


⌈ SAMPLE SECTION ⌉

General Sample:Sample 1 Sample 2

Emotion Sample:
Apollo is hunched over his notebook, pen tapping furiously at a page. Mini mountains of manila folders and stacks of reports and case notes nearly cover the rest of the desk. It's only been a day and he's gotten no where with this new client of his. Their partner had came to him, demanding his assistance in a legal matter. Obviously he's innocent! they'd said in a dismissive, flighty manner. Apollo wasn't so sure. And the more evidence he'd gathered, the more uncertain he became. Meeting the client themselves didn't help much either. They didn't even seem that bothered--and Apollo couldn't tell if they just had THAT much confidence in him, or if there was a more sinister, underlying motive. No, the former couldn't be right. They couldn't even remember his name--Napoli Gistoos? C'mon!!

He rubs at his head. The client barely cares, and the evidence is literally stacked against them! And yet they still want him to go for it? What's the point! Apollo thinks, slamming the pen down. How can I help someone like that? They're shady as hell! They might as well walk into prison themse--!

His thoughts are cut short. Pages rip from the notebook, and once neatly stacked sheets on the desk begin to whirl around the room in a storm of paper. Apollo swats at the air as the notes fly to and fro, and a page smacks him right in the face. He tears it off with a scowl, slamming it down to the table, ready to yell out an objection to this whole mess, when a certain line on the page catches his eyes.

It's an older page from the notebook, he remembers, one where he'd jotted down key rules of lawyering. All learned from Phoenix Wright. One line stands out in particular--Remember, a lawyer must always believe in their client.

As Apollo reads it, the flurry of papers begins to slow, and slowly, they all begin to drift back to the table and floor. Right. Believe in your client, wear your biggest smile? Apollo huffs. He keeps forgetting that bit.

But. . .when everything else is hopeless, it's as good a place to start as anywhere else.

Apollo takes a deep breath, and then exhales. Have a little faith--his client needs his help, after all. He has to trust them. He nods to himself, and begins picking up the strewn papers. Just gotta get back to the basics.

Sorry I missed you; I'm either busy with something or trying not to stare out into the overwhelming void of space right now, so it's fine if you leave a message!
imfine1111one: (Default)
So Apollo can be a walking lie detector at times! It is not 100% and most of the time he doesn't even attempt it because why. Also I just plain don't play it out a lot unless it's thread relevant haha.

BUT THIS IS A PERMISSIONS POST!! When Apollo DOES catch a lie he can see tells the person is leaving--a twitch of a finger, shifty eyes, scars suddenly becoming death faces! THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS.

So tell me what your characters' tells are! Alternatively, let me know if you DO NOT want Apollo ever picking up on a lie! As a general rule though if you don't comment I will always ping/pm you to ask permission before having Apollo see something and ask if it is cool o/ Thank you guys!

Despite his icons, Apollo isn't as bandaged up as he appears to be! Well, at least he's not wearing the eye patch, anyway. He was when he first arrived, but most of his wounds are healing now, so there's no need for it. Uuunless I decide he should open one for funsies. He'll figure out his Perception doesn't work here for now (nts ask mods), and will only wear bandages when he feels like covering up monster traits (red patches, blocking sunlight, etc).

I'll indicate when he's bandaged up in comments! Also, he will almost always be wearing a red suit. Somehow!!

GOBLIN STATS/NOTES

-He has one spike jutting from each elbow! It's more like his bone kind of grew out of his body. WHOO!
-Ice Magic unlocked! Triggered by feelings of fear, being desperate, helplessness, etc. BAD THINGS.
-Red skin has stopped spreading! It covers most of his body, stopping at his wrists/back of his hands and his chin. A bit of creeps up to his cheeks and ears, but the majority of his facial area is normal colored.
-Weakness to sunlight intensifies! Can only be in direct sunlight for up to an hour before passing out. Uses cover or sticks to shaded areas. He will wear bandaging to protect his arms from sunlight if he absolutely has to be outside for longer than needed.

CHARACTER INFORMATION
Character Name: Apollo Justice
Age: 23
Canon: Ace Attorney
Canon Point: Mid-Case 5 of DD (SPOILERS)
Character Information: Wiki Links! The games Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, and Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies feature Apollo specifically. The former he is the main playable protag, and in the latter he is supporting cast.

For a brief summary, Apollo Justice is an up and coming rookie lawyer, taken under the now legendary defense attorney, Phoenix Wright's wing. In AJ:AA, we see Apollo debut as a defense attorney, forced to defend Phoenix--who at the time had been disbarred from lawyering--and eventually gets him declared innocent! But it's not exactly a happy ending.

Apollo learned that his now once idol, Phoenix Wright, had taken on a more cryptic, nonchalant midboss demeanor, and tricked Apollo into using forged evidence. On top of this, his then-current boss, Kristoph Gavin, was the true murderer! It was quite a lot for the rookie to take in. After a bunch of wacky antics, however, Apollo ends up working for Phoenix despite his resentment toward being used as a pawn, and it begins Apollo's descent into eternal disgruntlement. However after several adventures in lawyering, Apollo begins to take to his new job and stands on his own two feet! All the while without knowing that Phoenix was withholding knowledge that his assistant--Trucy--was Apollo's half sister, and that a witness to one of his cases was his long lost thought dead mother. To this day, Apollo still doesn't know the truth.

Over the game, Apollo proves to be extremely competent and grows closer and more cooperative to his co-workers and rival prosecutor, and learns he has extremely perceptive powers. With the aid of a magical bracelet, it enables him to become a walking lie detector and enhance a special genetic ability he has to "Perceive". Apollo was slowly but surely coming into his own, and making a name for himself as a stand out defense attorney, not the apprentice of a has-been or a murderer. And though his life had become kind of crazy, and he'd taken on the roll of the straight man, snarking at surrounding antics, Apollo was pretty content with things!

Then Dual Destinies happened and he found out his canon best friend had been murdered! Whoo! This set the stage for most of Apollo's internal struggles and less than stellar character traits to come to life, as they had been brewing over time. Clay and Apollo had bonded at an early age over not having/losing their mothers--this is where his 'I'M FINE!' catchphrase comes from, they said it to themselves whenever bad things happened or to get over nerves.

In Dual Destinies, while by this point Apollo was a lot more laid back concerning the craziness of his life, and the Wright Anything Agency has grown on him, but he is still coping with Clay's death and eventually has to come to terms with what he believes it means to be a lawyer. This theme is put the test at the climax of the game, when it's his own co-worker who is suspected of the crime, with overwhelming evidence stacked against her.

Personality:
Apollo is a walking contradiction of conflicting emotions and ideals. He rarely sees things in mere black and white, and frequently has to pull logic from more morally gray areas. He is a passionate, if still inexperienced lawyer ready to take on anything that comes his way, but he also knows he has to be very careful about it, and tries to use his head.

When we first meet him, Apollo is loud, enthusiastic, and ready to prove Phoenix Wright's innocence! As a rookie, of course he was nervous, but he still tried to flip any argument back in the prosecution's face, and listened to any advice both Phoenix or Kristoph had to offer with great attentiveness. He's very big on making good first impressions (though this ends up getting him made fun of due to him yelling so much or shouting I'M FINE). He appears optimistic and hopeful, thinking everything will always turn out alright.

But that's only in the first case. After two months of unemployment (he outright refuses to work for Phoenix for a long while), Apollo is rightfully a little jaded at how events went down, and it's reflected in his attitude. He still has a few moments of optimism, mostly because he truly does want things to work out for his clients, but he's taken on a far more cynical outlook. This doesn't stop him from being enthusiastic about the job itself, though! He is eager to keep learning about the trade (jumping at the chance to attend a lawyering seminar), and shows pride in flashing his Attorney's badge. Apollo will also eagerly dig through trash for clues, or turn a blind eye as he and his assistant do a little breaking and entering to gather evidence. He's been caught eavesdropping too! Though his attitude has been tainted with pessimism now, he's still more than eager to help others out and is still quite passionate about his career choice. This is also shown in his readiness to aid new co worker, Athena Cykes, as a senior to show her the ropes. He also continues to shout I'M FINE!! in order to psyche himself up and get him through rougher times.

Speaking of being cynical, Apollo's mind is usually running snarky commentary about what's going on around him. Apollo is very much the straight man of the series--he's not nearly as extreme or wacky as other characters, and can be seen as a stick in the mud or offering some sarcastic advice. Even in his first case, when the prosecution asks him to point out the math error in his argument, Apollo thinks it's ridiculous the old man can't do basic math. . .but of course he doesn't say it out loud. He tries very hard to put up a professional front, but in truth Apollo is judging something about most people at all times. The more comfortable he is with someone, however, the more likely he'll be snippy to their face. (For example, when Phoenix opts to take Athena on a case with him instead of Apollo, Phoenix asks for his thoughts, and Apollo smiles and quips "You REALLY don't want to know what I'm thinking.")He's also very prone to spouting a little bit of harmless dark humor, such as when he suggests that "People Park" change its name to "We Kill People Park," due to the crime scene.

That said, Apollo is very much the Stick in the Mud straight man of the series. While he gets plenty of ridiculous moments (presenting panties, getting attacked in the face by a hawk), in general Apollo tends to be the one deadpanning at all the craziness surrounding him, adding his commentary on it. He also gets picked on quite a bit by every single person in the series, and even some witnesses harass him by saying he looks like a demon due to his hair style. Often times when Apollo tries to speak up against this or shoot his own witty snark back at them, he will be chided and told "he's not cool enough to do that." While annoying, Apollo seems more than used to it by now, and just quietly suffers through this treatment. He doesn't seem all that bothered by it, as he has more confidence in himself than anyone. He is far from a doormat though, and he will put his foot down with a yell if the teasing ever goes too far.

Two other conflicting key traits of Apollo are his preference for logic while being quite an expressive, emotional person. Apollo is all about FACTS and usually refuses to make a judgement call without having all the details to study properly. He tends to turn his nose up at explanations that involve hollow bluffs or jokingly include the supernatural, and will rattle his brain until he can make a situation make sense in a rational way. Many of his cases seem impossible or extremely convoluted, but Apollo is always able to dig until he's found a sound, logical explanation for everything. In only his second case, he was able to figure out how a noodle stand, a panty thief, and a hit and run were all connected to one horrible murder, despite looking like smaller crimes on their own! This logic also applies to simpler decisions--when a high profile mayor needs a defense attorney, Trucy volunteers Apollo, but instead of accepting, he suggests that the mayor find someone with more experience to represent him. It's not that he doesn't have confidence in his abilities, it's simply that Apollo realized how big a deal this was and thought it was proper to have a more seasoned attorney on board. It isn't until he learns of the circumstance between the mayor and the daughter that he then sympathizes and finally agrees to help out.

Which leads into him being very expressive and empathatic! Despite his logical, professional and sometimes grouchy attitude, under that frown is a waterfall of emotions. The mere thought of Trucy being kidnapped makes him break down in tears, and he greatly sympathizes with his clients who have lost/are in danger of losing their parents. He can become flustered very easily, whether it's due to someone complimenting him in court (he's so used to being picked on instead), or someone riling him up because of a mistake he's made. He will yell and point and shout before trying to backtrack and get back into professional mode! His emotional outbursts aren't always so funny either, as he punches Phoenix in the face for lying to him--when only hours earlier he had thought he idolized the man--and while he tries to keep it in his head, there are quite a few witnesses he'd love to punch in the face and/or strangle. Apollo wears his emotions on his sleeves, and it's very easy to tell how he's feeling whether his mouth is running or not. When it comes to important snap decisions, Apollo will lean back toward his more logical side most of the time, unless action is needed then and there. One of the few times he recklessly puts emotions over logic is when he saves his coworker's friend in an explosion, despite that it nearly killed him, too.

Apollo is never immediately trusting. There are few people that manage to gain his favor right away--the exceptions are Trucy Wright, due to excessive exposure and her becoming his partner in not-quite-crime almost immediately, and his late best friend, Clay. It is worth noting that no one even knew about Clay's existence until the second case of Dual Destinies--Apollo keeps most of his private life just that, private. Since that crazy first trial, Apollo's trust is shot. Though he cleared Phoenix's name, it's revealed Phoenix forged actual fake evidence and tricked Apollo into presenting it. Apollo responds to this by punching Phoenix right in the face, and refuses to come work for him for two solid months. He is unemployed during this time as well, due to getting Kristoph convicted, and he only caves and comes to work for Wright after sheer desperation.

It takes a good few months before Apollo can truly trust Phoenix again (just by virtue of being in close contact), and even when he learns that Phoenix was wrongfully accused when he lost his badge, Apollo is still a bit questionable about his methods. Even in Dual Destinies, it's obvious Apollo has relaxed and toned down his suspicions, and he actually respects Phoenix quite a good deal, but he is still prone to being short and blunt with his employer due to their past.

His trust issues don't apply to Phoenix alone! His 'rival' is Klavier Gavin, a now ex-rockstar Prosecutor, and brother to Kristoph Gavin. I hesitate to say rival, as though they take jabs at each other in court, Klavier is extremely helpful to Apollo, which utterly confused him. At first Apollo simply thinks Klavier is a show off and out to get something by providing assistance, but they eventually become a good team as their goals are one in the same (finding the Truth, regardless of the client's innocence). By Dual Destinies, we see that the two are on very good terms, and it's even implied they get together to chat once in a while (as noted when Apollo mentions knowing about Klavier's mentor after she's murdered). It's not impossible to gain Apollo's trust, it's just a long, rocky road.

As for applying trust issues to his work, Apollo also finds it difficult to have unyielding faith in his clients. . .mostly due to five out of six of them being guilty of crimes OTHER than murder, or them leading double lives. While Apollo is glad to help, he approaches the situation by considering all the facts, and will only come out on the offensive side when he is 100% sure of his client's innocence due to evidence. "Evidence is Everything" was his former mentor's, Kristoph Gavin, style of defending, and while Apollo obviously prefers Phoenix's less evil/crazy style of leadership, this phrase still hangs over his head, and he even repeats it at a vital moment during Dual Destinies. As far as Apollo is concerned, all his clients are GUILTY until proven innocent.

The near breaking point of Apollo's trust was when his best friend was murdered. As it turns out, his new co-worker that'd he grown close to over the last few months turned out to be a major suspect. While everyone else was quick to side with Athena and proclaim her innocence, Apollo is the only one to go with logic over his gut, and he continues to suspect Athena until there's a way to clear her name. He ends up taking a leave from Wright's office, as their ideals began to clash. Phoenix Wright leans toward always having faith in your client no matter what, and that simply isn't something Apollo is capable of, not yet. He wants to though, and it's why it's such a struggle for him to find a balance between going with his heart vs going with his head. It should be noted that Apollo deliberately wears an eyepatch during this time--as mentioned, he's something of a walking lie detector, and his bracelet allows him to "see" telltale signs of a lie using his special eyes. He didn't want to "see" anything with Athena and figure out the case on his own.

Also if you want brutal honesty, Apollo is your man. No matter the situation, Apollo's number one goal is The Truth, and he'll do all he can to find it. Up until his second case in Dual Destinies, every single one of Apollo's clients were guilty of a crime. Sure, he got them cleared of murder, but to do so, he would always point a lesser crime they've committed to do so, even if it meant making his own defense look weaker. From blatantly pointing out the danger of being a mobster's son, to exposing a child smuggler, to even convicting his own boss, Apollo rather put everything on the table to make sure all of his facts are straight. While he usually, truly does want to see his clients go free, unlike Phoenix he approaches the situation mostly without bias, and rarely bluffs (maybe stammers and stalls for time when his mind comes up blank, but usually he knows what he's talking about!) This applies outside of the courtroom, too. While Apollo tries to keep up a professional front and internal monologue, if you ask his opinion, he will tell you exactly what's on his mind, no matter who you are. Apollo can be quite aggressive in an argument if he is totally confident in his words, and he usually will not let up unless deterred by hard facts. As shown by him getting his former boss convicted, and pushing hard for his co-worker's guilt, Apollo will not hesitate to throw someone to the wolves if the evidence is stacked against them.

Apollo is also very. . .hm. I want to say negotiable, when it comes to getting what he needs. As mentioned, he's not above sneaking into off limit areas (though he will complain about it, gosh darn it) in order to gather information, nor is he against stuffing evidence into his pocket and booking it. But while most of those incidents are usually harmless, Apollo will also go to more extreme ends against his better judgment in order to get a better grasp of the situation--for example, while investigating is friend's death, he went to talk to one of the witnesses, Aura Blackquill, knowing she had an extreme bias of the situation. He also doesn't seem all that bothered when she holds an entire station of people hostage, as it got him a chance to speak on the witness stand himself. He obviously doesn't condone it, but he uses the moment for what it is. Apollo will always and forever lean toward the more lawful side of things, but by now he's fully aware there are many others who don't feel the same way, and he'll take advantage of it.

Basically Apollo has a LOT going on in his head when it comes to opinions and trying to sort things out. But despite all this, he is also still very much looking for guidance. Despite everything that's happened to him, he still greatly values Phoenix's opinion of him, and in Dual Destinies, Apollo begs him to clear the doubt out of his head, unsure if he's fit to be a lawyer due to being unable to blindly have faith in their clients. This isn't to say Apollo needs any hand holding, far from it, as he's more than happy to play the role of mentor to Athena himself, but he is also VERY aware of his own limits, and looks to those more experienced than him for aid along his crazy lawyer career (and also why he's willing to look for help from both sides of an argument, like with Aura). And as said, while he doesn't trust easily, once that trust is gained Apollo will hook on to a person with cautious optimism, which makes it all the worse whenever he is betrayed by someone he respects.

5-10 Key Character Traits:
-Logical

Would you prefer a monster that FITS your character’s personality, CONFLICTS with it, or EITHER? you know what i'm gonna go with either LET'S SEE WHAT HAPPENS. Something sort of in the middle would be great tho.

Opt-Outs: Arachne, Gargoyle, Minotaur, Wendigo, Troll +bonus werewolf (due to Mike)

Roleplay Sample:
-Forced to confront Athena Klavier and Maya try to get Athena and Apollo to work out their problems/Apollo's trust issues. (Craven Castle)
-Looking for Clues for more context, Apollo had noticed that no one had bothered to check the room of the suspect's friend, as most thought it was irrelevant. Apollo suggests they search it anyway and they find incriminating evidence. (Craven Castle)
-Maya and Apollo discuss potential killers (Craven Castle)
-That one time Apollo blew up a door to find evidence For more context, they are trapped in this castle, and this area had been blocked off to them for a good time, and it was suspected key evidence would be back there to use to confront a killer. (Craven Castle)
-Confronting Klavier/Determinging his Side (Short term Mafia Game)
-Introducing himself! including this one due to Apollo having amnesia in this game, and it shows off his eager, more optimistic side better. (Kyriakos)

[so while they're watching poisonous flowers burn]

. . .huh, that was more fun that it probably should have been.

I should tell you something.

[apollo makes it a point to find nanami!]

Hey, when you have a moment, I need to speak to you about something.
imfine1111one: (no u)
[AT SOME POINT Apollo attempts to intercept Klavier for a talk!!]

Hey, Prosecutor Gavin? Sorry if this is a bad time, but I wanted to ask you about something.

[This is an IC Journal for Apollo at Craven Castle! He keeps all the pages in his Notebook, and they are clearly labeled]

[HELLO UNIFRIENDS at some point on Monday, Apollo goes around knocking on the doors of all of his dormmates, trying to gather them together!]

[it probably seems weird, this dude in eyepatch running around yelling at your door, but he takes a deep breath and explains his intention!]


Um!! I'm sorry to bother you all, but given that we're going to be living together in a way, I. . .I don't know, I feel like we all need to try to stick together, or at least check in with each other, given last night's morbid revelation.

For those who don't know or haven't read their notebooks yet, my name is Apollo Justice, and I'm a defense attorney. U-usually that means in the courtroom, but. . .damnit, I don't want anyone to die on my watch! I'm not sure how much weight there is to our hostess' words, but I'd rather err on the side of caution.

So! If anyone ever needs help or feels threatened, please give a shout! Or, I don't know, we can come up with some other idea! Even if it's true and some people might think this whole murder game thing is a grand old time, if we can protect even a few people I think being organized is worth it!

So. . .what do you all think?

((OOC: this is a private post for all those residing in the unicorn dorms! Feel free to use this for whatever/get to know your fellow Unicorns more or talk about whatever until/unless idk one of us dies I guess. I'M NOT SURE WHAT I'M DOING have at))
