Beasly was an enigmatic individual, who had a self-proclaimed "magnetic personality", which was apparently how he found puzzles.
No one knows exactly how he got the job in the first place, though.
Chapter Three: The Enigmatic FutureEdit
By tapping Beasly's Flower, which can be found in said shop and at the entrace to Chinatown, the player can access their store of lost puzzles.
Chapter Seven: ChinatownEdit
Inside, Layton and co. met Beasly again. Layton and Luke talked to Beasly to find out more about him and his backstory, and it was here where Beasly, before he could tell his "gripping tale", was swatted (but not killed) by Puzzlette, who in turn replaced him as puzzle keeper.
He could be seen in the credits, wrapped in bandages and cursing about his ill treatment.
- Beasly was most likely Subject 2 of the animal test subjects, like the parrot and Subject 3.
- Even though Beasly says he doesn't know Granny Riddleton, in the credits it shows that she knew him.
