Krantz is a character who appears in the game Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. He is the hotel manager of Folsense and stays in the Hotel Lobby throughout the game. He works alone since the workers all went off the scene when the illness came about.
Krantz is very smartly dressed with a navy suit and orange hat.
Krantz gives valuable information about the town whenever Professor Layton talks to him. This may imply a helpful side to Krantz but in the meantime, he can be seen as rude since he interrupted Beluga in mid-conversation.
Krantz gives the following puzzles in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box:
Before the true criminal who stolen the Elysian Box is revealed, Beluga explains why he'd be entitled to the box. Krantz quickly interrupts Beluga and reminds him that he abandoned Folsense a very long time ago and will therefore not be the heir of the Elysian Box.
"Krantz works the front desk at the Folsense hotel and has many fond memories of the Herzen family. Over the years, all of the hotel staff fled Folsense, leaving Krantz to run the whole operation by himself."
