** Edgeworth himself suffers from this: the death of his father and his upbringing by von Karma twist him so far that, even after he turns himself around and becomes someone he can live with, he can't go back to what he used to be. At least he has enough defense attorney opportunities thrown his way to show that he could follow in Gregory Edgeworth's footsteps if he wanted -- and be good at it too. He remains a prosecutor by his own choice (and by ''Dual Destinies'', an InternalReformist).
