Pre-Game Life[]

Six years before Last Specter, Grosky was a constable at Scotland Yard. He arrested Emmy when a boy accused her of stealing his wallet. Professor Layton came to Emmy's help, and soon sorted the confusion out. In the years between this event and Last Specter, Layton assisted Scotland Yard with several difficult cases, Grosky became an inspector, and he befriended Emmy.

Professor Layton and the Last Specter[]

In Last Specter, Inspector Grosky is involved in Emmy's recollection of her first meeting with the professor. In this memory, Grosky falsely accuses Emmy of stealing a young boy's wallet. The professor manages to clear up the confusion, and leaves before Emmy can find out his name. Although Emmy constantly alludes to this meeting, the professor doesn't remember.

After helping Emmy find the case files on Evan Barde's death in the Yard's archives, he races her on foot back to Misthallery in order to inspect the case of the specter. Though he isn't the one who solves the mystery, he is present when Layton explains what the 'specter' and Loosha are, and when he accuses Doland Noble of being behind it. When Noble reveals himself to be Jean Descole and activates the rest of his machines, Grosky evacuates the town square.

Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva[]

Clamp Grosky went to the Crown Petone Theatre in order to investigate suspicious activity. When the game for Eternal Life is announced, Grosky manages to arrest the man on stage. But just as he finishes talking, the person turns out to be a puppet, which blows up like a balloon. As the inspector is still handcuffed to it, he is pulled out of the ship, and when the puppet bursts, into the water where the sharks lurk.

He later manages to climb back aboard, but Nina (with Melina's memories) pushes him back off. Later on he manages to climb back on a second time, but just he does, the ship is blown up, forcing him to jump back into the water. Eventually he is rescued by Emmy, who was on her way to Ambrosia. She decides to take him with her in her airplane.

In Ambrosia, Grosky arrests some of Descole's servants (after most of them were taken out by Emmy). He remains on the ground when Layton and Luke attempt to save Melina by flying to the top of the Detra-Gigant, for he has to look after Nina.

In the end, Grosky arrests Oswald Whistler after he plays a final song on the remains of the Detragan's organ.

Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask[]

Grosky is invited to Monte d'Or to assist the local police in the unmasking and capturing of the Masked Gentleman. He is on stage during the presentation to the police, and discusses the 'miracles' with Professor Layton, although he offers no actual input. At several points during the investigation, Grosky appears to talk to Layton, but dashes off after receiving word of criminal activity.

Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy[]

Grosky chases after Bronev and Targent after being instructed to by Chief Inspector Carmichael. He is first meets up with Layton, Emmy and Luke on the streets of London, they pursue him into an alleyway where Emmy saves him from being shot by Targent thugs.
