Spoilerwarningbackground

Professor Layton and the Last SpecterEdit

Chapter Six: London's Hidden SecretsEdit

Barton made a brief appearance alongside Inspector Chelmey. When Emmy returned to London she is introduced to them by Inspector Grosky in Scotland Yard's archives.

Professor Layton and the Diabolical BoxEdit

Prologue: The Elysian BoxEdit

Barton was first seen by Chelmey's side in Diabolical Box when Dr. Schrader had been killed. He helped examine the crime scene and other police work after Professor Layton and Luke were made to leave.

Chapter Five: Shadows on the Street CornerEdit

Whilst Layton and Luke were searching for the photo scraps, Barton followed Chelmey as he interviewed some of Folsense's residents. He also was the one who called Layton and Luke back to Folsense's hotel when Chelmey had figured out who had murdered Dr. Schrader.

Professor Layton and the Eternal DivaEdit

Barton made a cameo appearance in Eternal Diva. When Layton revealed that Don Paolo was responsible for silencing Big Ben, Barton can be seen with Inspector Chelmey as they pursued the villain via car.

Professor Layton and the Unwound FutureEdit

Prologue: The Clock Shop on Midland RoadEdit

At the time machine presentation Barton accompanied Chelmey and enjoyed the food being served.

Chapter Four: Back to the PresentEdit

After Layton had the files he needed from the archives, thanks to Barton, he and Chelmey followed Layton and Luke to the clock shop along with Flora, and were taken to the future London by Cogg. He investigated Bill Hawks's disappearance with Chelmey.

Chapter Twelve: The Truth RevealedEdit

Barton went with Chelmey to the Thames Arms to listen to Layton's explanation of the mystery. He ordered a meal as he listened to Layton reveal the barkeep as being Dimitri Allen in disguise; when Layton proved Dimitri's bomb threat to be a hoax; when Dimitri explained his true motives for trying to rebuild the time machine (to go back in time to the accident at the Institute of Polydimensional Physics to save Claire); and finally when Layton revealed that Future London was fake, being built in a cavern below the real London, and that being so, Future Luke being an imposter.

Chapter Thirteen: The Stronghold of MadnessEdit

He remained on the ground with Chelmey, Dimitri, Don Paolo and Celeste when Layton and Luke used the Laytonmobile to board the fortress to save Flora. He handcuffed himself to Dimitri, placing him under arrest, and witnessed Don Paolo's flying machine take Celeste aboard the fortress.

Epilogue: An Unwound FutureEdit

Whilst Layton, Luke, Flora and Celeste rewired the fortress generator, Barton helped Chelmey oversee a mass evacuation off all the residents of the future London via the clock shop. His efforts helped save millions of people from being killed when the fortress fell back into Future London and exploded.

He and three other bobbies escorted Clive to a local police station on Chelmey and Bill's orders.

Layton Brothers: Mystery RoomEdit

Main article: Commissioner 

After the incident involving the prime minister, Barton soon worked up the ranks and eventually gained the position of Commissioner of Scotland Yard. He appears to have bonded closely with Hershel Layton during the course of the game. 

PuzzlesEdit

In Diabolical Box, Barton gave Layton and Luke a puzzle during the investigation. This puzzle was "How Many Turns?"

In Unwound Future, Barton gave Layton and Luke a puzzle or two. These puzzles were "Park the Car" and "Crossing the River".

In vs. Ace Attorney Barton gives Luke a single puzzle which is Barton's Burger.

ProfileEdit

Diabolical BoxEdit

Barton 1

Despite his appearance, Inspector Chelmey's assistant, Constable Barton, is a mere 27 years old. Though he's often hard to read, Barton is actually extremely adept at covering for his supervisor's occasional oversights.

Unwound FutureEdit

PL3Profile06

A placid bon vivant, Constable Barton is the perfect foil for Inspector Chelmey. His love of the chase is dampened only by his recurring hunger pangs, which he satisfies by frequent visits to local eateries.

Last SpecterEdit

PL4Profile08

A placid bon vivant, Barton joined the police force hoping to follow in his father's footsteps. He passed the tests with flying colors, but the daily performance of his job is hindered by a tendency to overeat and fall asleep on duty.
