|Game Role||Recurring Character|
VS Ace Attorney
|Japanese VA||Shiro Saito|
The Inspector wears a khaki suit with a white shirt, black shoes, and a navy blue tie. He has a heavily curved mustache and black hair combed to the side.
Inspector Chelmey is gruff and rather unfeeling, although he does show mild affection to his second, Barton. He also loves his wife, Amelie; proved by Barton's comment that he'd never seen a man more in love with his wife than Inspector Chelmey. He enjoys 'showing Layton up', but Layton usually ends up doing a better job than Chelmey, instead. Chelmey takes pride in his job, and is definitely dedicated to being an inspector. He has demonstrated great talent in analytical thinking, although his habit of jumping to conclusions often leads to him being outdone by the Professor.
Inspector Chelmey, in the first trilogy, gives Layton and Luke a puzzle or two. In Curious Village Chelmey gives Layton and Luke the puzzles "Five Suspects" and "The Mysterious Note". In Diabolical Box he gives the pair a few more puzzles. These ones are "The Shoe Store Thief", "Chelmey's Route", and "A Secure Room". He gives Layton and Luke puzzles in Unwound Future as well. These final puzzles include: "The Fingerprint", "Where's the Arrow?", and "Bricks 'n' Bullion".
- In the US version of Curious Village, Chelmey's favourite food is sweet-potato fritters. In the UK version, however, his favourite food is cake.
- Despite being voiced by Christoper Miller in the games, Chelmey is voiced by Jonathan Keeble in Eternal Diva.
- Though Chelmey isn't a major character in the prequel trilogy, the character Inspector Grosky could be considered to be his equivalent, playing a similar role to him. The biggest difference between the two characters is that Chelmey is grumpy and impatient, while Grosky is spunkier and more athletic. It should be noted that Chelmey and Barton do cameo in Last Specter when Emmy goes to Scotland Yard.
- Technically, Chelmey was not in Curious Village, and actually made his debut in Diabolical Box.
- Inspector Chelmey appears on another game called Inazuma Eleven (which is another different game franchise of Level 5) and appears on a team called the Layton Team but it is only a brief appearance and his team may not be even challenged. This team includes Professor Layton, Luke, Flora, Don Paolo, Inspector Chelmey and Anton Herzen.
- When Chelmey first met Layton in Diabolical Box, he didn't trust him, and was quite rude to him. But Chelmey seemed to have developed a new respect for Layton somewhere in between Diabolical Box and Unwound Future, and even admitted to him that he was baffled by the case of the missing prime minister.
- Chelmey gives the quest "Scotland Yard Escalation" in London Life.
- Chelmey would have to be in his mid 30's to 40's.
- Chelmey appears in the crossover title, Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. His role in the game is currently ambiguous but footage has been released confirming his appearance in the game.
