"Professor, Melina has left us... Is there no way to get her back?"
— Janice grieving Melina's "death", Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva

Janice Quatlane is one of the main characters in Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva. She was a former student of Layton's archaeology class, before becoming a famous opera singer.

Profile Edit

Appearance Edit

Janice wears a simple lavender dress with a purple pendant that Melina had left her before she died, and has her hair in a low ponytail. When she was singing onstage in 'The Eternal Kingdom' opera, she wore a white and gold gown and a crown. In the present day of Eternal Diva, she wears a white dress with a short blue jacket, along with the pendant.

An opera singer with an extraordinarily lovely voice.

Supposedly eternal.

Plot Edit

After Melina Whistler died, Janice was one of the first people to have Melina's memories pumped into her mind by the Detragan. Like with the other attempts, the procedure seemed to have failed, at first, but when Oswald turned his back on the machine, Janice allowed the transfer to complete by burying her personality

Janice wired up to the Detragan

voluntarily and letting Melina take control of her entire mind.

Melina used Janice's body throughout Eternal Diva, and she was also the one who had sent Layton the letter. At the end of the movie, she left Janice's body. Janice was later seen arriving at Layton's office after the credits.

Trivia Edit

  • The "World of Professor Layton" guidebook would later confirm her age as 23 during the events of "The Eternal Diva". In comparison, Melina was 22 when she died, implying they were around the same age.
  • In Professor Layton and the Last Specter, Professor Layton states, when tapping a record, that he knows a "diva by this name", most likely implying the record is one by Janice.
  • In Professor Layton's London Life, Janice appears. Oswald Whistler and Melina Whistler also appear as unlockable characters.
  • Janice is voiced by famous Japanese singer Nana Mizuki in Eien no Utahime.
  • Nana Mizuki's Japanese cover of the film's songs is used in every version of Eternal Diva.
  • Her name means 'god is gracious'.
  • The dress Janice wears during her performance as the queen of Ambrosia appears to be based off a similar one seen in the painting The Accolade by Edmund Blair Leighton
