* ActionDad: He more-or-less becomes Flora's adoptive father [[spoiler:then later Alfred and Katrielle's]] and he's no slouch at fencing.

to:

* AbsentMindedProfessor: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed.]] While his competence and intelligence are much more prominent, he is not without his eccentricities. His obsession with puzzles and the like often lead to him [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny getting distracted by them]], his study is full of scattered books and outdated reminders to himself, and he's notorious for skipping out on his actual job whenever a fancy strikes him.
** He even [[InvokedTrope plays the part]] of one in ''VideoGame/ProfessorLaytonAndTheAzranLegacy'' to mislead Targent agents in Kohd.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Hypocrite}}: [[spoiler: As we discover at the end of ''VideoGame/ProfessorLaytonAndTheAzranLegacy'' that he's none other than Layton's biological older brother, Hershel Bronev who held a justified grudge towards Targent for kidnapping their parents for the Azran civilization, he isn't above stooping to their levels as them by kidnapping Luke's mum and butler to manipulate his dad, Clark to help him find the Golden Garden before they do, next, he manipulated Layton's high school close friend, the amnesiac Randall from the start to take revenge upon his childhood friend, Henry for 'stealing' his wealth and Angela from him to also discover the Nautilus Chamber of Akbadain before them as well and getting close to Layton as Professor Sycamore to take revenge against Targent as his next pawn.]]


* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: She decides to get a job as Layton's assistant sometime after he clears her name on a pickpocket case.

* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: She decides to get a job as Layton's assistant sometime after he clears her name on a pickpocket case. [[spoiler: Although at the end of ''VideoGame/ProfessorLaytonAndTheAzranLegacy'' she's revealed to be working for Targent all along to get close to him, she did so to help Layton convince Bronev to end his obsession with the Azran civilization for good and her friendship with Layton and Luke are genuine.]]


* ParentsAsPeople: Well, just only him as the father, not his wife, Rachel who's more closer to both of their sons, Hershel (not our Layton but Descole's real name) and Theodore (our Layton). He does love his entire family like his treasure but his research into the Azran civilization was also important to him as an archaeologist which is his main conflict struggling to balance his family life with his career which worsens when Targent threatened him and his family. Bronev selflessly defend his family and pleas for them to take him and his wife which they compromised to leaving their sons as orphans.
