Layton's Mystery Journey
Stachenscarfen (sometimes abbreviated as Stachen) is a recurring character in the Professor Layton series. Generally, he provides some sort of tutorial on an aspect of the game, such as finding hint coins and hidden puzzles. Despite his initial appearance in St. Mystere, it is implied that he is not a robot since he appears in later games, which take place in other locations.
Stachen has hair that almost covers his eyes, and a long mustache. he wears a white shirt with a maroon sweater over the top, with a scarf as well. He wears blue jeans and shoes that match his sweater. His white socks are visible from his shoes.
"Ah, yes, the mysterious Mr. Stachenscarfen. In a town full of mysteries, few stand out as class-A enigmas the way this moustached man does. Where did he come from? And where is he going? That, no one can say."
"Why, it's our old friend Mr. Stachenscarfen. Where'd he come from? He has a strange habit of suddenly appearing, only to vanish moments later. Where he'll show up tomorrow is as much a mystery as his identity."
"Why, it's our old friend Mr. Stachenscarfen! Though it's a pleasure to see him again, it seems that both his origins and motivations are just as shrouded in mystery as ever."
"This man is something of an enigma. He visits our heroes in their dreams, and does little more than bewilder them by seeming to know more about them than he plausibly could. If that weren't strange enough, when he talks to Layton, he always acts as though he's trying to lead him somewhere."
- Stachenscarfen makes a cameo appearance in Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva. He is seen when walking past Janice before she is approached by Melina in a seven year old girl's body.
- He makes a small appearance Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy, where the player must obtain the Curious Suite Ticket from Treasure Hunt to see him in a dream sequence.
