The Magatama Key was a piece of evidence in the trial of Ahlbi Ur'gaid for the murder of Paht Rohl. The only key that can open the treasure box containing the Founder's Orb, it is kept at all times in the possession of the head monk of Tehm'pul Temple.

The truthEdit

In reality, it is called the Mitamah Key, although its true name was kept a secret in order to conceal the true nature of the treasure box and the actual means of opening it. To do so, one must flip the key vertically so it resembles a mitamah instead of a magatama, then place it in the butterfly engraving on the back of the treasure box. This opening mechanism is secretly hinted at in the second verse of the "Song of Ceremony": "When the butterfly embraces the mitamah, the favor of the orb is bestowed". The treasure box contains a Psyche-Lock-shaped lock on the front designed to divert attention from the true opening mechanism, as Psyche-Locks are associated with magatamas.

Role in Ur'gaid's trialEdit

The key was used by Phoenix Wright to prove that head monk Pees'lubn Andistan'dhin was responsible for the theft of the Founder's Orb, since only he would know the secret to opening the treasure box and the box had not been forced open.
