Daryan Crescend
Say "hi" for me, OK? Oh, and "screw you".
~ Daryan Crescend to Apollo Justice, referring to Klavier Gavin
Daryan Crescend is a minor antagonist in the video game; Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, but the main antagonist in the case; Turnabout Serenade. He is the second guitarist in the music band Gavinners. He is also the one responsible for the murder of Romein LeTouse.


Daryan got involved with the smuggling of a Borginian Cocoon, the cure of Incuritis, a deadly disease. The son of the Chief Justice got the disease, and Chief Justice hired Daryan to smuggle the cocoon. However the cocoon can also be used to make a deadly poison, so it's illegal to use the cocoon. Daryan contacted Machi Tobaye, Lamiroir's pianist, to smuggle a cocoon while Klavier Gavin was visiting the country. Tobaye put the cocoon in a guitar that Lamiroir gave to Gavin, along with a incendiary device. During the Gavinners concert, he was confronted by Romein LeTouse. Machi Tobaye used the incendiary device (That could be controlled remotely) to burn the cocoon (and Klavier's guitar), while Daryan shot LeTouse with his own gun. During the trial, Lamirior recalled listening to Daryan's threats to LeTouse, marking Daryan as a suspect.


Backed into a corner, Daryan straightens his hair appearing to remain calm of the situation, but then suddenly cries for help, flailing about madly, his pompadour slashing about like a sword. Shortly after this, his hair is loose and flopped downwards, as he stands broken on the witness stand. After which Daryan was found guilty and arrested.


  • Daryan's outfit is heavily based on a shark-theme.
  • It was stated that Borginian Courts give death sentence for a single case of Cocoon Smuggling. As Machi Tobaye was sent in american court, it means that Daryan was sent to Borginia, where, most probably, he was executed.
