Professor Layton and the Last Specter[edit | edit source]

Chapter 1: The Fog of Misthallery[edit | edit source]

Upon arriving in Misthallery to meet Clark Triton, Professor Layton and Emmy found themselves face to face with Aldus, who pointed them in the right direction as to where to find Clark's home. Before leaving, Aldus told the two what hint coins are, and explained how to find one.

Chapter 3: The Specter Appears[edit | edit source]

Later on, Aldus appeared on Great Ely Street and told Layton and his companions to tap a near by pipe ten times. In doing so gave them a strange old fossil. Aldus told them to start a collection with it, adding the Collection minigame to the professor's trunk.

Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask[edit | edit source]

Close to the beginning of the game, Aldus appears in Celebration Boulevard to explain to the Professor about hint coins. He tells you to find a wooden box, and you can't find it without zooming in, and he explains how. Layton opens the box and finds a hint coin.

Aldus's next significant appearance was in Knick Knack Alley, where you had to zoom in to find him. There, he tells you to look in the metal box near the small building, and there the Professor finds a Stylish Clay Pot. Aldus then gives Layton the Collecion Box, for an extra add-on to the investigation.

He appears again when the player has completed the story, telling them how to go back to Stansbury or Monte d'Or, and how to alternate between day and night via the Dromedary hotel room and Hershel's room at Riverside Cottage.

Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy[edit | edit source]

Layton, Luke and Emmy meet Aldus once more in Froenborg, where he asks them to find his wooden box again. As before, it is not located in plain site, so Aldus has them zoom into the igloo. They find the wooden box and a hint coin inside. Aldus then leaves to warm up, as he is freezing.

Later, a lead in Kodh sends Layton and company to Aldus, who is waiting for them at the station. He asks them to check the station exhaust pipe, where they find a Familiar Relief. Aldus gives the professor a collection box to keep it in, and encourages him to look for more objects like it. Later in the game, he can be found in San Grio.

Puzzles[edit | edit source]

Last Specter[edit | edit source]

In Last Specter, Aldus gives Professor Layton's group two puzzles during their adventures throughout Misthallery. These puzzles include "Moonlight Melancholy" and "Bouquet Giveaway".
