[edit] Plot

[edit] Professor Layton and the Curious Village

He provides Professor Layton and Luke with information about various things throughout the game, such as the identity of Ingrid, Flora Reinhold's ex-nanny.

When Simon Reinhold is found "murdered" by Inspector Chelmey, Matthew does not mention to Chelmey that he found a cog to the side of Simon and gives the cog to Professor Layton. Matthew explains that he trusts Professor Layton and knows that he will solve the cog's relevance to the case.

Matthew is later seen, about to enter Lady Viola's grave. He allows Professor Layton and Luke into the shrine-like grave, assuming that it will help them in their quest to seek the Golden Apple.

[edit] Professor Layton's London Life

Matthew is a hotel butler at Crumpet Hotel, similar to his role at Reinhold Manor. However, this goes against the ending of Professor Layton and the Curious Village since Matthew is supposed to be a robot who only stays in St. Mystere.


[edit] Biography

"The oldest of Bruno's robots. Matthew has faithfully served the Reinholds as their butler for many years. Because of his kind and mild nature, however, he often gets the brunt of Lady Dahlia's bossiness."
