Ahlbi Ur'gaid
Mr. Rohl encouraged me to never give up. "Ahlbi, you train hard and make sure you become a monk one day! Don't end up like me," he'd say.

Paht Rohl was a treasure guard in Khura'in's Tehm'pul Temple who was tasked with keeping watch over the treasure box that housed the Founder's Orb. He was murdered in the line of duty, with Ahlbi Ur'gaid being accused of the crime.

Early life[]

Rohl was once a monk-in-training like Ur'gaid, but had to give it up because an ascetic life could not support his family, especially since he had to support his younger brothers and sisters after the early death of their parents. He instead took a job as a Tehm'pul Temple guard, and was eventually put in charge of guarding the treasure box which contained the Founder's Orb, which included the honor of carrying the box to the Royal residence for the New Year's rite. While working at the temple, Rohl befriended the young Ahlbi Ur'gaid, who was training to become a monk, and would often give him advice and encourage him to dedicate himself to his training.

However, Rohl's job was still not enough to support his family, forcing him into a life of professional burglary that he kept secret from Ur'gaid.

Holding Ur'gaid at gunpoint.


Being fatally struck with a dahmalan by Andistan'dhin.

Rohl eventually decided to steal the Founder's Orb and sell it on the black market, only to find the Orb was already gone when he reached the treasure room; unbeknownst to him, it had been stolen by the head monk Pees'lubn Andistan'dhin on the orders of Inga Karkhuul Khura'in. Nevertheless, Rohl decided to take the box, since it was a valuable artifact on its own.

While infiltrating the storeroom, he encountered Ur'gaid and drew a gun on him, demanding to know if he was the thief. However, a blackout then struck the temple and Rohl was discovered by Andistan'dhin, who realized that Rohl, who had the duty of carrying the treasure box to the palace once a year, would have figured out that the Founder's Orb was stolen due to the treasure box's less than normal weight and could expose this fact. To stop this from happening, he killed Rohl with one of his dahmalan musical instuments and tried to pin the blame on Ur'gaid, but his plan was foiled by the intervention of Phoenix Wright, who defended Ur'gaid in the High Court of Khura'in and proved Andistan'dhin's guilt.




Rohl was described by Ur'gaid as a kind man who often gave him good advice. Due to their similar backgrounds, Rohl expressed concern for Ur'gaid and told him to work hard to become a monk, not wishing for the boy to have to resort to crime like he had. However, his desire to sell a precious national relic on the black market proved that he was certainly not without his flaws.
