To OC or not to OC?

I've been wondering about this for a while now, and I would appreciate any insight you guys have to share.

Since Ace Attorney is full of outrageous canon characters, where do you draw the line for OCs in fanfic? What helps an OC to 'blend in' with canon characters and successfully integrate into an AA story, and what instantly disqualifies an OC as a Mary Sue? Are there any fics that stick out in your mind where an OC was written especially well?

(For clarity's sake, by 'Original Character' I'm referring to a character that plays a major role in the fic, not just an author-created client/detective/whomever that only gets mentioned in passing.)
