The Revolutionary couple
Tahrust and Beh'leeb Inmee were members of the revolution that was brewing within Khura'in, and prior to his death, she became pregnant with their child. Despite his role as the High Priest, both the Inmees detested the Defense Culpability Act and sought to change it as part of the revolution. For this purpose, Tahrust and Beh'leeb had access to a room hidden behind the Inner Sanctum, which was one of the Defiant Dragons' many secret hideouts. This room was also monitored by a microphone which Tahrust checked regularly.
In 2026, coinciding with Maya Fey's arrival in Khura'in, they took in Rheel Neh'mu under the name Puhray Zeh'lot, having found him on the border of the country with apparent memory loss. Neh'mu was actually a member of the government's secret police and licensed to arrest or kill suspected revolutionaries, but he did not know the Inmees were revolutionaries at the time.
The couple planned to help Datz Are'bal escape from prison, located atop the mountain where the Inner Sanctum lay. As a part of this preparation, Beh'leeb was to prepare the secret hideout behind the Inner Sanctum. However, Neh'mu ended up following her and discovered her secret, preparing to kill her for being a revolutionary. Cornered, Beh'leeb ended up killing him in self-defense, causing the Sanctum's spring to run red with Neh'mu's blood.
Tahrust realized that despite his wife's circumstances, she would likely be put to death - the Divination Séance would be interpreted against her, and there were no lawyers in Khura'in who would speak up on her behalf due to the DC Act. Tahrust thus decided that the only way to save his wife was to alter the crime scene and kill himself, making him and Neh'mu appear to be victims of a serial murder. Beh'leeb was not informed of this plan, as he knew she would not agree to it. First, he had Neh'mu's body placed on the mountain snow, altering the temperature in order to throw off the perceived time of death. Then, he moved Neh'mu's body to the Plaza at the mountain's foot and placed him in a praying pose, knowing that his corpse would not be disturbed, and stabbed his neck with the ceremonial Warba'ad Dagger, which had Maya Fey's fingerprints on it from practicing the ritual.
On the day of the ritual, Tahrust led Fey up the mountain as required of the ritual, and had Fey drugged unconscious. The ceremonial robe of Lady Kee'ra was draped over the Warba'ad statue which Neh'mu had been impaled on. Tahrust then put on a show of performing the ritual, and finally threw himself at the statue to impaled himself, killing him. As his body fell into the spring, he pulled the robe off the statue. To onlookers, and from the appearance of the Divination Séance, it would look as if Fey had put on the ceremonial robe and killed him.
Summoned to testify

Tahrust was later summoned by Maya to testify during her trial of his and Neh'mu's deaths. He believed that Maya's hair was "a gift from the Holy Mother" and would often play with it, although he quickly decided her robe was far too constricting, taking it off for most of the trial. In order to protect his wife, Tahrust testified to absolve Beh'leeb of all involvement, but Phoenix Wright managed to push through the contradictions in Tahrust's testimonies and figured out that Tahrust's death wasn't a murder, but a suicide.
Eventually, Beh'leeb herself was convinced to confess to her deed and true allegiance to protect Fey from a false conviction, causing Tahrust to scream in frustration and despair. Coming to terms with his fate, Tahrust admitted his motivations, citing the existence of the DC Act as the reason to why he had no choice but to do what he did. Bidding his wife farewell, Tahrust was exorcised from Fey's body by Beh'leeb using the Magatama of Parting.
Tahrust was a devout monk, and fully believed in the teachings of Khura'inism, but, despite this, he believed in the cause of the Defiant Dragons. He was revered by many as a good man, priest, and husband. His wife, Beh'leeb, was the most important thing in his life to him, and he would go to the most desperate measures to protect her, even if it meant his own life and framing a close friend. Despite his calm demeanor, Tahrust had an impish side and was also shown to have a fearsome temper when angered.
