This is a list of the mysteries encountered during the investigation of St. Mystere.
The Golden Apple
"The late Baron Reinhold hid this item in St Mystere just before dying, and has promised the whole of his fortune to the one who finds it. No has any clue what the Golden Apple might be or where it is hidden."
Baron Reinhold's Will entrusts his entire fortune and estate to the one who finds the Golden Apple. The Apple is supposedly somewhere in St. Mystere, but no one knows where it is or what it looks like.
"The Golden Apple turned out to be Flora, the daughter of Baron Reinhold. The name and legend surrounding the Golden Apple were created by the baron to help him find a suitable guardian for his daughter."
Noise at the Manor
"When the professor first met Lady Dahlia, Reinhold Manor was rocked by a noise so loud it shook the walls of the mansion and scared off Claudia. What could the source of that noise be?"
A loud noise reverberated through the manor just as Professor Layton and Dahlia were about to shake hands. The noise was so startling that it cause Claudia to run from the room in fright.
"The noise that shook the mansion and scared off Claudia was caused by Don Paolo's flying machine making an emergency crash landing in St Mystere."
The Vanishing Crank
"Someone has stolen the crank that controls St Mystere's drawbridge, the sole portal in and out of the village. Until the crank is recovered, there is no way to leave the village. Why would somebody want to steal a drawbridge crank?"
While searching for Claudia, Layton and Luke come across another mystery. Someone has stolen Franco's drawbridge crank. Without that crank, no one can get in or out of the village.
"Bruno, caretaker to all of St Mystere, was the one who stole the crank for the bridge. His intent was to prevent Layton and Luke from leaving the village, so they would seek out the Golden Apple and fulfil the late Baron Reinhold's last wish."
"A small cog with an intricately carved insignia was recovered from the scene of Simon's murder. Perhaps the murderer dropped it when fleeing the scene."
The murder at the mansion shook everyone up. Matthew kept a calm head, however, and searched the room for clues. He found a small cog engraved with a hammer and wrench. Why would this cog be at the scene of the crime? More importantly, who dropped it?
"The small cogs recovered by Layton and Luke came loose from Simon and Ramon when they collapsed. The cogs, along with the mysterious disappearances he observd around the village, convinced Layton that all the villagers in St Mystere were robots."
"Baron Reinhold's late wife Viola is pictured cradling a baby in a photograph on Lady Dahlia's desk. While the two women seem to be complete strangers to each other, their resemblance to each other is too uncanny to be a coincidence. What's really going on here?"
The late Baron's first wife, Violet, looks identical to Lady Dahlia. They are not related, but there has to be some sort of connection for them to look so alike.
"It's revealed that Lady Dahlia is a robot originally constructed to resemble and behave like the baron's late wife in every way imaginable. Along with her grave in the grounds of the mansion, this was another tribute to the baron's love for Viola."
"Rumour has it that a number of villagers have disappeared recently. Oddly enough, those who disappear (or are abducted, as some suggest) often do so after complaining of general fatigue or other minor health issues."

"The abductions around the village were actually the work of Bruno, who moved under the cover of night to retrieve his broken robots. Bruno would bring robots back to the tower to repair them and then return them to the village. As none of the villagers knew they were actually robots, it's only natural that they were terrified by the strange old man."
"Walking the streets of St Mystere at night, a thunderous rumbling occasionally fills the air. The noise is rumoured to come from the tower, but no seems to know the origin of the sound. Villagers claim that the noise has increased in frequency as of late."
Walking the streets of St. Mystere at night, occasionally a thunderous rumbling fills the air. The noise is rumored to come from the tower, but no one in town seems to know the origin of the sound. Villagers claim that the noise has increased in frequency as of late.
"The loud noise emanating from the tower was thw whirring of the machines Bruno used to repair the robots of St Mystere. It's been several years since the creation of St Mystere. Maintenance becomes necessary more frequently as machines age, hence the reports of increased noise at night from the villagers."
"When Layton and Luke finally tracked down Ramon, they were shoecked to see him being kidnapped by an old man. Shortly thereafter, Ramon returned to the mansion with no memory of ever being abducted or stuffed into a sack. What's happened to Ramon's memory?"
When Layton and Luke finally tracked down Ramon, they were shocked to see him being kidnapped by an old man. Shortly thereafter, Ramon returned to the mansion with no memory of ever being abducted or stuffed into a sack. What's happened to Ramon's memory?
"As a robot with several years on him, it was only natural that Ramon would break down sooner or later. He was quickly taken in for repair, then promptly returned to the village, blissfully unaware that he had just undergone a tune-up."
"Though Chelmey claims to dislike all sweets, a scrap of newspaper Luke found claims that his favourite food in all the world is cakes. That being the case, why did Chelmey fly into such a rage when Matthew brought him cakes at the manor?"
Though Chelmey claims to dislike all sweets, a scrap of newspaper Luke found claims that his favorite food in the world is sweet-potato fritters. That being the case, why did Chelmey fly into such a rage when Matthew brought him sweets at the manor?
"What a shock! Who could have imagined that Don Paolo, self-proclaimed arch-enemy of the professor, was posing as the Inspector in an effort to steal the Reinhold fortune? The true Inspector Chelmey never set foot in St Mystere and is probably at home in London enjoying tea and cakes right now."
"Deep underground on the edge of the village, the professor and Luke found a unusual key shaped like the tower. While the connection between the key and the tower seems certain, what the key unlocks remains a mystery."
