Wordsmith is first seen during the first witch trial, in which he appears as a witness. He brings up various testimonies, but was later found unreliable after Phoenix Wright exposes the contradictions. However, he does manage to give the valuable information that there were only four witnesses present after Emeer joins the trial.
He is seen again a second time during the final Witch Trial, where he is also a witness. This time, he is disguised as a Vigilante and says he doesn't know anyone named "Wordsmith", though nobody seems to be fooled by it.
- His English name comes from the term for someone who applies almost craftsman-like skills to word use.
