Miles' old man, and a stunning defense attorney. He was the only one to make a mark on von Karma's performance record (before [[InvincibleHero Nick]] came bungling along). He was also the victim of the [[ThatOneCase DL-6]] case, which would go on to have repercussions on many of the characters. His English name may come from Creator/GregoryPeck, who played [[Film/ToKillAMockingbird Atticus Finch]] and whom Gregory Edgeworth strongly resembles. In ''Ace Attorney Investigations 2'', he became an AscendedExtra and is featured in plot-important flashbacks.

* GivingSomeoneThePointerFinger: It must be genetic...

to:

* DisappearedDad: For Miles, his only son. Gregory's death would haunt him for years until fifteen years later.
* GivingSomeoneThePointerFinger: It must be genetic...The original pointer. Both Miles, his son, and Phoenix, whom he indirectly inspired, would later echo his signature gesture until it became iconic for them.



* MeaningfulName: Not so much on the English Name aside from being a GeniusBonus and a ShoutOut. However, his Japanese name essentially means ''[[AwesomeMcCoolname The Sword of Truth]]''.

* BeautyIsBad: He's as pretty as his younger rocker brother Klavier [[spoiler:but is really rotten to the core on the inside]].



* BrightIsNotGood: [[spoiler:Another [[{{Foreshadowing}} hint]] to his true, insidious character. Compared to Klavier, whose clothes are darker-colored and continues to dress like a rocker in court yet is heroic and good-natured, Kristopher wears a light purple suit which combined with his blond hair and good looks makes him look trustworthy... which makes the discovery that he's really a rotten character all the more shocking]].

** [[spoiler:When Phoenix calls him about the victim being murdered, Kristoph makes a reference to the victim's bald head, when Shadi had his hat on until he died, so Kristoph shouldn't have known about that fact. This makes Phoenix suspect of Kristoph]].

* KubrickStare: It generally cannot be seen, but he does one when adjusting his ScaryShinyGlasses. It can be noticed [[spoiler:in Case 4-4, when Perceiving one of his statements]].

to:

* {{Irony}}: [[spoiler:Kristoph's entire reason for becoming an attorney is to be "needed" and become the center of fame and attention. Alas, when his crimes come to light and he flies off the rails upon learning the judicial system is changing, he is bluntly told by even his own brother that he isn't "needed" anymore, because he is so unwilling to accept change]].
* ItsAllAboutMe: It really says something when he lists two things that should be only allowed in the courtroom: "Me, and the law!" [[spoiler:And the reason why he murdered Zak Gramarye? It's because the man had the ''gall'' to choose Phoenix Wright over him, which was interpreted as a sign that he wasn't "good" enough of an attorney]].
* KubrickStare: It generally cannot be seen, but he does one when adjusting his ScaryShinyGlasses. It can be noticed [[spoiler:in Case 4-4, when Perceiving one of his statements]].statements. When he starts being on the verge of a VillainousBreakdown, he starts getting a more sinister one, looking dangerously (at the viewer) while crossing his arms, his mouth a mix between a smirk and a snarl]].

the same person after killer of Shadi Smith/Zack Gramarye, he starts acting significantly angry, slowly raising his fist ([[ChunkyUpdraft which makes the dishes Olga Orly dropped levitate into the air) before slamming it into the witness stand]].
** [[spoiler:When he learns that the court will be using a Jurist System for his second murder trial for the fatal poisoning of Vera's father, Drew, and that [[ArchEnemy Phoenix Wright]] came up with the idea, he flies off the rails, pounding the witness stand again, and lets loose a NightmareFace as he screams Phoenix's name.

he's done, he's a completely different person, with a more unhinged, disheveled appearance, a mad look in his appearance has changed so much.]]eyes and a mouth that's a mix of a smirk and a snarl]].



* WouldHurtAChild: [[spoiler:He tried to exploit Vera's fingernail-biting habit by lacing a nail polish bottle he gave her with a deadly poison, so her act of forgery wouldn't be traced to him. He eventually succeeds in poisoning the girl, but fortunately for Vera, she survives]].



* AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance: His overall gray, stony look makes him resemble an ancient sculpture, while his Greek-style toga and his globe staff lends a godlike appearance. Naturally, when his beliefs are exposed and destroyed, he starts [[VillainousBreakdown breaking down]] - even gritting his teeth to the point of cracking them - like a statue crumbling because the foundations holding it up were smashed to smithereens.

* CrusadingLawyer: Gregory Edgeworth was easily one of the greatest Defense Attorneys of his time. Until Phoenix came along, he was the only attorney who could go toe-to-toe with Manfred von Karma, so-called "god of prosecution". And unlike Phoenix, who barely held on for three days by [[CourtroomAntics bluffing and grasping at straws]], Gregory held strong for a whole year and got von Karma penalized for the only time in ''forty years'' of prosecuting.
