{{Quote|Miles Edgeworth|In order to save the queen, King Primidux put his life on the line and went to war.|''[[Turnabout Ablaze]]'' (inscription on the statue "King Primidux and the Battlefield")}}
The '''Primidux Statue''' is a national treasure of [[Cohdopia]] whose likeness is based on the legendary King Primidux, who is said to have founded the country. A different statue of King Primidux, called "King Primidux and the Battlefield", also exists in the [[rose garden]] of the [[Cohdopian Embassy]] in the [[United States]].
A national treasure of [[Cohdopia]] whose likeness is based on a previous king of the country.
Legend has it that the founders of Cohdopia built the statue in honor of King Primidux. The relic was then passed down from generation to generation, until Cohdopia fell into a civil war and was divided into [[Allebahst]] and [[Babahl]]. After the conflict settled, it was found that both countries possessed a Primidux Statue. The importance of having the real statue drove both countries to insist that its statue was the genuine historical treasure.
Upon the country's split into [[Allebahst]] and [[Babahl]] both countries claimed to have the true statue. The real one was in Allebahst with Babahl owning a fake. Although the Babahlese embassy was well aware of the authenticity of its statue, both countries claimed to have the real one.
==Role in the reunion==
The fake was hollow and used to store a plate for making counterfeit bills. The two statues were switched during an [[Turnabout Ablaze|incident at the embassy]].
:''Main article: [[Turnabout Ablaze]]''
In 2019, [[Manny Coachen]], the secretary at the Babahlese embassy in the [[United States]], organized a goodwill event between the two countries at the shared [[Cohdopian Embassy]] building. As part of the event, both Primidux Statues were brought to the embassy, with the intention being to determine once and for all which was the real Primidux Statue. However, the Babahlese embassy knew already that its statue was fake, so Babahl's ambassador, [[Colias Palaeno]], struck a deal with Allebahst's ambassador, [[Quercus Alba]], to announce that the test results were inconclusive. Unfortunately for him, a larger plot was at play.
Alba was secretly the head of [[Cohdopian smuggling ring|an international smuggling ring]] and enjoyed extraterritorial rights that made him immune to prosecution from all countries other than his own. Coachen, another member of the smuggling ring, sought to switch the two Primidux Statues and ensure that Palaeno became Cohdopia's ambassador to America, effectively usurping Alba from his position and replacing him with a puppet. To this end, he hired a thief, [[Ka-Shi Nou]], to steal the real statue. However, Alba discovered Coachen's plot and killed him during an event in the [[Theatrum Neutralis]] between the two embassies. Desiring to dispose of evidence of the smuggling ring on Babahl's side, Alba then had [[Shih-na|a co-conspirator]] burn [[Secretariat's office|Coachen's office]] and arrange a switch of the two Primidux Statues, as the fake statue was hollow and contained plates used to make [[Counterfeit Bills|counterfeit bills]]. By the time Ka-Shi Nou invaded the [[Ambassador's Office]] in Allebahst, the statues had already been switched - for entirely different reasons - and Alba killed him with the fake statue.
It is implied that [[Zinc Lablanc]] was given the fake statue after the events at the embassy.
Owing to the fact that the statues were so important to the conditions of the reunion, only the ambassador and his secretary at each embassy could touch or grant permission to touch their respective statue. Nonetheless, when the investigation into the two murders tried to determine the weapon used in Nou's murder, [[Shi-Long Lang]] defied Alba and inspected the statue to confirm that the statues had been switched and that this statue was the murder weapon. Eventually, Alba's entire plot was exposed.
After Alba's forced resignation and arrest, Cohdopia was reunited, with Palaeno being put in charge of its American embassy. Palaeno sent the fake statue to [[Zinc Lablanc|an unsuspecting art collector]], having no more need for it himself.
