Layman is a minor character appearing in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. He was a mid-ranking gangster of the Family. He was very similar to Professor Layton in clothing (mainly the top hat), the way of speaking and name. However, he was quite short in comparison to Layton. He said that people are judged by their way of fashion, however Bostro gave him the post in the alleyway, since he was literally below his boss's notice. He was found in the alley on the way into Chinatown, and later on in the game, during the shootout, defending himself with a chair.
- US Version
Layman is a gangster with romantic ideals. What he lacks in height, he makes up for in dexterity. He works for Bostro, but being literally below his boss's notice, he's been assigned to the undesirable backstreet post.
- UK Version
Layman is a gangster with romantic ideals. Though not very tall, his unmatched dexterity makes him a promising recruit. He works for Bostro but, being literally below his boss's notice, he leads an unrewarding life in the back streets.
