Cuthbert is a scientist that was kidnapped by Dimitri Allen to work in his lab. At first, Cuthbert is afraid of Professor Layton, thinking he is Future Layton but when Horace mentions that this is not the case, he realizes the two are not the same. He aids Professor Layton and the others to find the Central Research Facility along with Horace. He is usually found on the bridge that leads up to Chinatown.
Cuthbert wears a white lab coat and an orange shirt underneath.
Cuthbert gives the following puzzles in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future:
"One of the abducted scientists taken to future London, Cuthbert worries about his family and often sneaks out to see them. He is endowed with a brilliant mind for science and invention but sadly has no sense of humor at all."
- Cuthbert's accent may have came from the English accent of Geordie (Someone from Newcastle, England)
