lawyer. Kristoph spent years thinking that it was because he lost a card game, which would be Disproportionate Retribution on its own, but Zak was actually watching the way that Kristoph was playing more than the cards themselves.

* {{Griefer}}: [[spoiler:He has absolutely nothing to gain by being so obstructive in the final trial, being in prison for life on one murder already, but does so simply to make Nick and Apollo lose. Though it's also likely that being convicted again would cost him his LuxuryPrisonSuite, his remaining respect among his judicial peers, and his safety from death row.]]

* INeverSaidItWasPoison: [[spoiler:He has ''three'' screw-ups in the first case that allow Phoenix to point him as the real murderer. To sum them up:]]
** [[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 suspicious of Kristoph]].
** [[spoiler:Early into the trial, he describes the poker game between Phoenix and Shadi and makes an offhand mention that the poker cards had a blue back. However, the only photo which has the cards at that moment was in black and white, the poker deck that was actually used in the last hand had red backs and the card that was put in place of the bloody ace had a blue back. This inevitably places Kristoph at the crime scene]].
** [[spoiler:The final nail in his coffin is that, when Apollo presents the bloody ace, Kristoph ''immediately'' and angrily points the fact that bloody ace is forged, instead of merely showing doubts about such a convenient piece of evidence. While he's right in that it's a forgery, the way he reacted proves the fact Kristoph knew about the real bloody ace he took from the crime scene]].

* WellIntentionedExtremist: He believes that since we live in the "dark age of the law", the only way to fight the corruption is to use corrupt means yourself. This is why he believes, as he says repeatedly, that "the ends justify the means." Later in court, however, he drops the "well-intentioned" part, and says that instead of merely fighting the dark age of the law with corrupt means, the dark age of the law is actually ''beautiful'', not something to be fought at ''all'', because the dark age of the law makes his philosophy of "the ends justify the means" stronger.

* PersonaNonGrata: [[spoiler:Was removed of his qualifications of being a defense attorney and barred from entering the British courts after the events of DGS 1-5 (which, considering he nearly publicly revealed state secrets to defend Gina, is not surprising). Fortunately for him, he manages to appeal to Chief Magistrate Vortex to overturn it six months later in time for DGS 2-3.]]

* TheCynic: Believes that law is in dark times, and that the only way to deal with the rampant corruption is to fight fire with fire. This is in contrast to Courte's idealistic idea of still pursuing the truth even against odds. In court, he becomes even more cynical: at one point, he writes on the chalkboard that the "dark age" of the law is a ''beautiful'' thing, not something to be fought, because in the dark age the ends justify the means!
