Did you know the Yatagarasu has three legs? Do you know why that is? Ha ha! No? Well let me tell you. It means that the Yatagarasu has more than one razor-sharp way to do her work.
~ Calisto Yew

Calisto Yew, also known as Shih-na, is the secondary antagonist of Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth.

She is a spy for the smuggling ring, posing as a defense attorney and agent.

She was voiced by Yuki Nakamura.

Personality

Calisto Yew

Calisto Yew doesn't take anything seriously, prefers applying makeup on herself over doing her job, and has a habit of pushing people's buttons. While she seems very aloof at a first glance, she will burst into hysterical laughter at anything she finds amusing.

However, there was a darker side to Yew. In reality, she was a cunning and intelligent criminal who was brilliant at using her surroundings to set up elaborate crime scenes. She was able to use her own perfume and a video recording to obscure the time of crime and give herself a strong alibi. She was easily underestimated due to how distant and odd she seemed, and was happy to use this to gain an advantage over other people, such as pulling a gun on Edgeworth and escaping when she was revealed to have killed Bryne Faraday and Mack Rell.

Shih-na

Shih-na originally seemed to be a devoted second in command to Shi-long Lang, being competent as well as observant. She performed her duties and was always at her bosses side, with his scroll in hand whenever he needed it.

Like before, this was just a cover for Calisto Yew, who had infiltrated Interpol to report information back to Alba and the smuggling ring. She was still the same intelligent and devious woman, just one using a different disguise and persona. As with Yew, Shih-na was ruthless, holding Kay Faraday at gunpoint when she was finally uncovered, before being fought off. She broke out into hysterical laughter before resigning herself to her fate.

Real

Little is known about Calisto Yew, and it's unlikely that Calisto Yew was even her real name. The thing both her disguises shared was her intelligence and affinity for setting up elaborate schemes. While she was prone to breaking out into hysterical laughter, she was a fundamentally empty person who solely existed to be used as a murder weapon by her superiors. It's never revealed if Calisto Yew enjoyed what she did or if she committed her crimes only because she was told to.

At the end, it was revealed the only person she was truly loyal to was herself, as her final act was betraying Quercus Alba by revealing decisive information. It's left ambiguous if this was a sign of respect for Miles Edgeworth catching her, a genuine act of remorse, or just her betraying yet another person.

Yew was also a thrill-seeker, wanting to find excitement in whatever she did. She mentions she liked working with Lang due to the intense nature of his job and was disappointed that she couldn't continue to be by his side, despite continuously betraying him while helping him solve crimes.

Biography

She appears first in Turnabout Reminiscence, where she isn't revealed to be evil yet until the end, but is able to escape by causing a ruckus by shooting at Miles Edgeworth, after her deeds are uncovered.

In the final episode she appears again under the disguise of Shih-na. After her differentiating persona is revealed, she is arrested. It is unknown whether of not Miles Edgeworth prosecuted her in court like he did to Alba.

Her betrayal has left a lasting impact on Shi-Long Lang who is still trying to decipher if there was ever a genuine bond between him and Yew, or if she was just excellent at fulfilling her persona.

Breakdown

When defeated for the first time, she starts laughing hysterically, rocking back and forth. After she's done with all the laughing, she tries to shoot at Edgeworth (who dodges the bullet)

When she's defeated as Shih-na, she starts laughing hysterically, much like the Calisto whom Edgeworth had met before. She notices it and stops with a final "hah," revealing herself as Calisto Yew. When "Shih-na" is finally defeated, she starts cackling, and after that, she suddenly starts laughing with fangs in her mouth, rocking her head back and forth.

Trivia

  • The name Calisto is derived from a species of butterfly while Yew is a reference to a type of tree with poisonous leaves. The former foreshadows Yew's involvement in the smuggling ring and the latter sums up her personality.
