At home, Professor Layton received a letter. It was from an old school friend of his, Sharon Leidle. The letter was about an evil, mysterious man who has been terrorizing her city, the self-proclaimed Gentleman of Miracles. The professor decided to go, together with Emmy Altava and his apprentice Luke Triton, to the city of Montdol, where Sharon lived.

When they arrived, they found a lot of fun attractions and decided to take a walk around. However, a man wearing a mask suddenly lurked out of the shadows of a tall building, and terrorized the people by making some float and turning others into stone. Emmy said that he is the Gentleman of Miracles as the same man asked if the people enjoyed the miracle. The Gentleman of Miracles then magically gained eagle wings and flew off.

Layton, Emmy, and Luke rode horses to follow the Gentleman of Miracles. They didn't succeed getting to the man, since he threw smoke bombs and disappeared.
