|~ Yutaka Kazami on why he killed Isaku Hyoudou.|
Yutaka Kazami, also known as Dane Gustavia, is the main antagonist of the episode "The Inherited Turnabout" of Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth: Prosecutor's Path. He is a pastry chef who took part in Jeff Master's confectionery contest in 2000.
Note: Translated names will be used for convenience.
Gustavia specialized in making candy into various shapes by using candy pumps to fill them with air and then molding them. He murdered fellow contestant Isaac Dover, in what became known as the IS-7 incident. However, the blame was pinned on Master and he was not revealed to be the killer until eighteen years later. He is also later revealed to be the father of Simon Keyes.
Before Gustavia was revealed as the killer, he came across as an aloof and stoic, yet helpful and cordinal man, who wasn't incredibly gifted in confectionary but still found joy in it. In reality, he was an opportunistic and selfish man who saw people as tools to help further his own ends. After regaining his taste and murdering Dover, he abandoned his son and fled the country, leaving the innocent Jeffrey Masters to take the fall.
When encountered in the present, he had become far more cunning and crafty, as well as a far better confectionist. He retained his dismissive aura but was far more aggressive and arrogant, believing himself to have gotten away with murder. His selfishness had only grown over time, as he solely blamed Katherine Hall for poisoning him, despite only getting poisoned due to trying to remove Isaac Dover's body to avoid suspicion.
His arrogance turned out to be his downfall, as Gustavia gloated to Edgeworth that he did indeed kill Dover, but couldn't be prosecuted due to the statute of limitations. Unfortunately for him, as he had left the country for several years, he was still within the statute, leading to his arrest for the murder.
- Yutaka's name was Dane Gustavia in the fan translation, with his last name sounding similar to "gustatory", which is a word used to refer to things associated with tasting or the sense of taste. "Dane" is the demonym for a citizen of Denmark, although in-game he is said to be Russian.
- Yutaka abandoning Keyes was the first step of Simon's descent into misanthropy, meaning Gustavia inadvertently caused many of the events of the game, despite being the culprit least involved in the game's story.
- It's highly likely Gustavia is blind in one eye, due to the scars as well as the fact it's always closed, even when he's shocked. As the scars on his arms only appear in the present day as well as the fact his hat has a small part of it slashed, it's likely Gustavia had some sort of cooking mishap that partially blinded him.
- Gustavia is the only culprit not directly related to the actions of the main storyline, as Horace Knightley, Patricia Roland, Blaise Debeste, and Simon Keyes are all closely connected. He's instead a cause of Simon's villainy.
