Louis Scott (or Detective Scott) is a recurring character in the Tales of Arcadia franchise.
He is a member of the Arcadia Oaks Law Enforcement and the father of Darci Scott.
Trollhunters (Part Three)
One night in Arcadia, Detective Scott goes on patrol and suspects that Toby may be behind all the recent crimes that have been occurring in town, given his brief visit to the station with Jim back in Part One.
Scott takes Toby back to the station and tries to interrogate him, but won't listen to Toby's explanations. Just then, he receives a call about more thieves and takes Toby with him just in case.

Scott is quite brawny and has brown hair and a goatee. He usually is seen wearing a blue police uniform and striped tie.
Instantly, Detective Scott was shown to be an easily suspicious and somewhat paranoid man.
When it comes to his job, he can be competent, though there are instances where he slips up (if not a lot). Like when he took Toby into custody, he suspected that he was a crook, but in reality, he was just disdainful that he was dating his only daughter, Darci, showing that he is an overprotective father. He also accused him that he stood his daughter up, although he was the one who arrested Toby and prevented him from seeing Darci in the first place (but when Toby points this out, he just snaps stubbornly). He was even willing to (in a minor view) abuse his power as an officer to threaten Toby into breaking up with Darci by putting him behind bars for his own personal reasons (which would be counted as misconducting). Additionally, he even went into the sewers to find the perps (as well as Toby) all by himself with no backup, which lead to him being ambushed by the real crooks.
He has also been shown to lose his temper very easily when things don't go his way, like when Toby steals his cop car and then runs away. He angrily vows to find and arrest him again, claiming that only the guilty run from the law.
Despite his overprotective nature, He is quite respectful when it comes to protecting the law from crooks, and came to mutually respect Toby after he caught some of the real crooks. He also admits that he enjoys acting (though he's quite terrible at it).
By Part Two of 3Below, his incompetence in his job is shown more in light, as he is quite uncaring, layback, and carefree. He barely takes Varvatos' warning seriously that Arcadia (as well as Earth) is in mortal danger and doesn't believe him when he confesses that he's an alien, despite him being aware that the supernatural exists ever since the Eternal Night War.
Powers & Abilities
- Enforcement Knowledge: Being a cop, Louis is quite skilled in crime fighting and trying to capture criminals.
- Mortality: As a human, Detective Scott possesses a mortal body, so is therefore highly vulnerable to any forms of injuries, sicknesses, and death.
- Taser: Louis often uses one to stun crooks when they are resisting arrest.
- Walkie-Talkie: Louis uses one to keep in contact with fellow officers.
- Police Car: Louis's primary mode of transportation while on the job.
Darci is Detective Scott's daughter. He is quite overprotective of his only child and doesn't think she should see Toby anymore, due to his bad history of breaking the law.
Scott and Ophelia seem to get along well, since Ophelia is the councilwoman of Arcadia and he is a lead officer.
When Varvatos came to Detective Scott to warn him about an alien invasion approaching Earth, Scott didn't take it seriously, despite being aware that the supernatural exists.
Detective Scott was instantly skeptic and disdainful of Toby when he arrests him and accuses him of breaking into a museum, stealing a pick-up truck, and trespassing (but, most of all, dating his own daughter). When Toby tries to explain that he was innocent, Scott blackmails him into breaking up with Darci or he'd have to go behind bars (for no reason).
However, after Toby catches the real crooks, Scott began to somewhat respect Toby, and accepts his relationship with his daughter, though he's still pretty skeptic about him.
Like everyone else, Scott finds Kubritz a delusional, corrupted military official after she threatens to harm innocent lives in Arcadia.
