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.
Layman gives Layton and Luke two puzzles during their time they venture through Future London. The puzzles that Layman gives them are "The Inheritance" and "The Mysterious Memo".
