Targent or 'The Targent Agency' is a crooked and devious government that are featured in the game Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask and Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy. Their aim is to locate and uncover the the three Azran legacies; Misthallery's Golden Garden, Ambrosia the City of Harmony, and the Nautilus Chamber of Akbadain.
When Jean Descole and Raymond discover the location of the Nautilus Chamber of Akbadain, Targent are quick to intervene and try to silence Descole and his servant by attempting to capture him. When this attempt is made, Descole escapes Bronev's grasp and so orders the ruins to be sectioned off so Descole or anyone else can not get to them.
Long before the events of Azran Legacy, Targent had kidnapped Professor Layton's parents, Leon and Rachel Bronev, for their extensive knowledge on the Azran Civilization. Eventually Bronev accepted Targent's mission and rising to become their leader, while Rachel had passed away sometime between these events and the events of Azran Legacy.
