Webcomic / Francis Equitas: Ace Casanova (And Attorney)

series of games. It features the protagonist, Francis Equitas, a lawyer in the employment of canon-universe attorney Kristoph Gavin.
It can be found here.
This Sprite Comic provides examples of:
- Ambiguous Gender: Tsuki Oukami.
- Asshole Victim: The case 2 victim goes above and beyond previous Asshole Victims in the Ace Attorney games by being a pedophile. To be precise, a sexual predator who made his victims strip in front of a camera. The only reason he didn't do this to his own daughter, Tsuki (the killer) was that she wasn't good enough for him, but he beats her due to her knowledge of his crimes. In fact, this disgusts Francis so much that he not only sympathises with Tsuki, he actually clears her of suspicion as well as get a Not Guilty verdict for his client, cleverly reminding the court that finding the guilty party is not his job, but rather, his job is proving who isn't guilty.
