I was talking with a friend about this and something popped into my
head. I was so focused on the idea that Katrielle was Layton’s
daughter… but except telling “maybe we haven’t seen the mother yet” or
“maybe Katrielle’s been adopted” it doesn’t help to find who is the
mother. But things become more interestingif we think that way : what if Katrielle wasn’t Layton’s daughter but Luke’s ?
I can’t help but notice the likeness with Luke, his mother Breda and
his love interest Arianna Barde. It would explains the blue eyes like
her mother, the rosy cheeks like her father and the swirly hair of her
grandmother. Futhermore, it would also explains why she’s able to talk
with animals. I bet you already noticed that Katrielle doesn’t share
anything with Layton except the hat.
( Damn I just noticed that even the eyebrow’s shape fits perfectly xD !! )
then, one last problem remains : why is she introduced as Layton’s
daughter ? Did something happen to Luke and Arianna so Layton had to
take care of her ?? Is Katrielle a rebellious one (like Luke with his
father xD) to the point of disowning her real name so she can take
Layton’s one ?? Gahh I wanna know !! but that’s just a theory though c: I guess we won’t know everything until playing the game.
