tbh one of my favorite concepts in ace attorney worldbuilding is the idea of apollo meeting franziska and he expects her to be her usual insulting, whip-wielding self that he’s heard horror stories about

only for her to do a 180 on him and treat him decently, whether it’s because she’s aware of all the shit he’s been through or if she’s doing it as a roundabout way to screw with pheonix’s head or some combination of the two

and at first apollo wonders if the stories were exaggerated, only to see her pull her usual acts with other people, leaving him very confused
