6. Professor Layton (Professor Layton series)
Being a badass isn’t always about brawn and fancy facial hair. Sometimes it’s about brains and intellectual superiority, which is where Professor Layton comes in. Hershel Layton is professor of archaeology at a fictional university in London, having spent most of his life in the English countryside. His keen eye for solving puzzles has saved lives and earned Layton the respect of his friends and peers. He is the perfect English gentleman.
Despite being created by a Japanese developer, Professor Layton embodies the true values of what it means to be a British gent: kindness, loyalty, a rational mind and an impeccable dress sense. Can you rock a top hat like Layton? No, you can’t. Layton is the kind of chap we’d like to sit down in the local pub, and buy a delicious pint of ale. Except, knowing Hershel, he’d absolutely insist on buying us a drink instead… before asking us to calculate how long it’ll take him to drink his pint, if he sips 3/10s of it during the first five minutes, and 1/5th of it every five minutes after that, the clever bastard. Spill his pint, though, and he will cut you.
