Emmy Altava from Professor Layton

Before Luke Triton, Professor Hershel Layton had another assistant: Emmy Altava. This ambitious young woman accompanied the puzzle-solving gentleman during the events of prequel games set three years prior to Luke’s adventures with Layton. Although Emmy’s loyalty to the professor was tested during her final appearance in the series, she’s aided him many times with her martial arts prowess and investigative skills.

Luke Triton from Professor Layton

Luke Triton is a fixture of the Professor Layton game series, always standing by the eponymous professor’s side as he leaves no puzzle unsolved! As Professor Layton’s self-proclaimed apprentice, young Luke dives deep into learning about detective work and what it means to be a true gentleman. Luke’s outfit from the first trilogy of Layton mysteries emphasizes his youthfulness, with drooping suspenders and a retro newsboy cap. The addition of a crossbody bag makes this costume especially convention-friendly!
