Eve Belduke, who went under the alias of High Inquisitor Darklaw, is a character that appears in Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. She is the High Inquisitor of Labyrinthia, working for the Storyteller.
It is revealed at Darklaw is shy but has a dramatic side to her, which is expressed more when she dresses up as The Great Witch. She also tries to do the puzzle solved animation but makes it too flashing in front of Phoenix, Maya, Layton, Luke and Barnham, as well as writing something like a movie draft in the Storyteller's book which was read out loud. During these events she was embarrassed and wanted to "use the spell Dimere and vanish" and "throw herself into the witch's flames".
- Her name is a portmanteau of the words "dark" and "law". In addition, her name may also come from "dark claws" because of the marks she makes in her slashing animations. Her name could also be a reference to the "Dark Age of the Law ," a period of time in the Ace Attorney series, where the public casted doubt on the legal system.
- The name "Eve" originates from the Biblical figure with the same name. Comparisons could be drawn between the two in that both ignored an authority figure in order to perform an action that was seemingly innocuous to them, but instead led to dire consequences. Alternatively, it may be a play on "eve", meaning "night/evening". If so, this could be a reference to both her dark clothing and cold personality, as well as the color of the cat named after her.
- Darklaw is the only main Labyrinthian character who doesn't own an animal. Espella own's Eve, Barnham own's Constantine and The Storyteller own's Hoot.
