They subsequently began to date, though in all subsequent meetings and unbeknown to Wright, "Dahlia" was really Iris, Dahlia's twin sister who was posing as her.
For eight months, she tried to convince Wright to give the necklace back in order to save his life from her murderous sister, but Wright, not knowing of this reason, refused to, thinking that she didn't mean it.
Wright has also been a defendant himself at least three times in his life, each time hiring a different lawyer (including representing himself). He once told Apollo Justice that he was raised in a barn, in order to explain the untidiness of his hospital bed, although he was most likely joking about this.
At one point in his life, Wright broke into a cattle ranch and tipped some cows.

By the time he was forced back inside, he had eaten the necklace.
In his third year, Wright met Dahlia Hawthorne in the District Court basement library and was immediately enamored with her.
She wrote him a poem and gave him a bottle necklace, telling him that it was a symbol of their love.
