Constantine is the pet dog of Zacharias Barnham. Although cute, he can be quite aggressive to those either he or his owner dislike - such as Phoenix Wright.

"Barnham's Wild Ride"[]

Main article: Tavern Tale

Constantine was discovered by Barnham shortly after the so-called "Barnham's Wild Ride" incident, where a dog spooked his horse during one of the Storyteller's parades. It turned out that said dog was Constantine's mother, and the two had been living in the forest together. Although she passed away shortly after, Constantine continued to steal chickens from a local farm to try to bring to her as food, laying them in a pile next to her body.

The inhabitants of Labyrinthia mistook the theft of chickens and crops as the act of a witch, and one rainy night, the townspeople decided to search for whoever was responsible. Barnham found Constantine during the search and overcoming his fear of dogs, took Constantine with him to Rouge's tavern to protect the dog from being captured by the other knights. Barnham decided to keep the dog and named him "Constantine", as he thought it was a name befitting the dog's actions to protect his mother, and made him a member of the knights. Although Constantine initially disliked Barnham, with an altercation between the two leading to the scar just beside the Inquisitor's left eye, the two eventually grew to trust each other.
