[edit] Plot

[edit] Professor Layton and the Last Specter

A year prior to the game, the Chief Engineer in the Closed Factory was forced to create an excavation machine by Jean Descole, which would be used to dig up the Golden Garden.

When the trio go and see Tony and Arianna Barde, they discover Loosha in their lake and Professor Layton explains that Loosha is not actually the specter, but in fact is trying to protect Misthallery from the Specter's damage. Layton also points out scarring on Loosha's body where she has been damaged by the Specter.

Professor Layton, Luke and Emmy finally find this out in Chapter Nine when they enter the Closed Factory and the Chief Engineer accidentally spills the beans on the Specter's true identity.

Professor Layton then reveals that the appearance of the Specter is in fact the excavation machine and Loosha fighting. The team set up a trap in order to catch the Specter. This succeeds and the Specter is shut down before it can destroy anything else in the Final Battle.

[edit] Appearance

The Specter's real form

The Specter is a shadowy creature with long, bended arms and two glowing red eyes. It has a fork-like hand and two antennae. It appears to have no legs since fog surrounds its torso. However, when the Specter's real structure is revealed, it is a robotic creature with two arms complete with 3 claws, two feet, two lights for eyes and a person is controlling the Specter where the torso is supposed to be.
