- "I desert and flee to this little village only to find a Champion here!"
- "And not any Champion, but Richard! He'll kill me if he should find out!"
If you tell him that you are going to tell Richard, he runs away and later he can be found on the pathway between Broken Valley and Orobas Fjords. You can also get a reward off him by promising not to tell Richard, but still have the option of telling him anyway.
You can mind read him when you meet him the second time for 800 exp to get a stat point.
