    This is a modern type of Lawyers versus Prosecutors based off the attorney games Phoenix Wright. Though the story of this will not take after any of them. The basics of this is that the Prosecution will try to argue that the accused is guilty, while the Defense tries to argue that they're innocent. The Prosecution nor the Defense knows, and they won't know for sure until they've heard the entire story.

    What will happen:

    You will select what you would like your character to be; Defense, Prosecution, an assistant to me (I'll explain this), an assistant to either defense or prosecution, or a Judge. I will only accept one Judge, mind you.

    An assistant to me will help me create court cases and play as witnesses or people that need to be spoken to. You will give only what you know and maybe some hints towards what the Defense or the Prosecution should be looking for. Unless you are the murderer, you can not give away the entire story. And I'm sure you wouldn't want to give yourself away~

    An assistant to either side will be the helper/second brain for the prosecution or the defense. They will merely tag along at the crime scenes, but there will be certain areas where the assistants can't go to help the defense or prosecution.

    Tasks of the Prosecution:

    As the prosecution, your job is to try and prove the accused to be guilty. The following is what you as the prosecutor are responsible for. Failure to do any of these could result in losing your case.

    ~Investigate the crime scene
    ~Obtain evidence in any way you can
    ~Run your evidence through forensics for any further clues
    ~Question anyone who you believe has valuable information
    ~Prepare the witness(es) so you make sure they don't say anything not in your favor
    ~Find contradictions in the defense's logic
    ~Provide logical reasons as to why the defense is wrong or the accused is guilty
    ~Beat the Defense

    Tasks of the Defense:

    As the defense, your job is to try and prove the accused to be innocent. The following is what you as the defense are responsible for. Failure to do any of these could result in losing your case.

    ~Investigate the crime scene
    ~Obtain evidence any way you can
    ~Run your evidence through forensics for any further clues
    ~Question anyone who you believe has valuable information
    ~Find contradictions in the witness' testimonies
    ~Find contradictions in the prosecution's logic
    ~Provide logical reasons as to why the prosecution is wrong or the accused is innocent
    ~Beat the Prosecution


    The Prosecution will not know what the Defense has and vice versa, until it's revealed. To ensure that this doesn't happen, I will start conversations with the Defense and the Prosecution. You will receive your evidence, and you'll try to figure out how it has something to do with the crime.

    Rules (open)

    1: All Iwaku rules apply
    2: You can not be an assistant to both the defense and the prosecution. Just one side please
    3: You can have more than one character, but I can't allow one Defense Attorney and one Prosecutor for the same player. Cause then you'll have access to everything, which is cheating :L The only people who can do that is me and my asistants, because we'll be helping you through the case without giving the entire thing away.
    4: I don't mind if your character is a genius, but no one is a mind reader.
    5: No metagaming please
    6: Have fun! I'll add more rules if I think of anything

  9. Sooo... I can make a random CS if it would help @Cats @GreenSea

    Maybe a random talking animal that gives hints @Jessica2477 ?
  10. @GreenSea

    I had intentions of making 2 assistants, one for the Defense and one for the Prosecutor. If you guys want, I can make them first so you two have an idea ^^

    @The Mythic Dragon

    Considering the setting of the first case, I don't think you'd find a talking animal ^^
  11. Please do~ X9
  12. @Jessica2477

    I was thinking just this random talking black cat or something that can appear if one needs hints, but only 1-2 times a case. For the lulz
  13. Here you go ^^

    Picture of Appearance:

    CLICK HERE (Picture change)

    Personality: Sasha is a kind, quirky girl that often gets herself into trouble when she doesn't mean to. She often tags along with her cousin, who is on the defense team, so that she could get the front row view of what it's like to be an attorney. She has a keen eye for attention to detail, and sometimes the "nonsense" she spouts can be plausible if one pays attention.

    Biography: *Since this is optional, I won't be writing it*

    Name: Desmond Valentine (Chooses to be addressed as Valentine, actual last name is Bershow)
    Age: 21
    Gender: Male
    Orientation: Demisexual
    Occupation: Assistant to Prosecution
    Eyes: Brown
    Hair: Black
    Height: 5'9
    Weight: 168 pounds

    Picture of Appearance:

    *No longer drawing it cause not necessary; Kuroo's face was too perfect to select another*


    Personality: Desmond comes off as sarcastic and snarky, but it's more or less because he isn't good at talking to people he just met or to crowds. Surprisingly, he's a law student and is very passionate about his future career. He follows every rule in the book. His professor believes that him tagging along someone in that line of work will help them get over his trouble speaking in front of others.
