Peter and his teammates see Momon and Nabe, who are attempting to procure a job and to let both teams work together. However, the pharmacist's grandson Nfirea Bareare comes to make a direct request of Momon. He suggests for Momon to take that job instead. In the end, a compromise is made as Nfirea agrees to take both parties as his bodyguard.
As they travel to Carne Village, the party is attacked by a large group of goblins and ogres. A battle plan is devised quickly, with Peter and his teammates face off the goblins while Momon and Nabe would eliminate the ogres. As the fight proceeds, Peter quickly realizes that their fellow companions are no mere adventurers. He looks upon the two with awe, comparing their strength to the heroes of legend.
The journey proceeds smoothly after the encounter, but things are amiss as Nfirea realizes Carne Village is more fortified than usual. Sensing that something is wrong, Peter and his teammates advance cautiously but are ambushed by a large group of goblins, stronger than before. No fight breaks out as the goblins tell them that they have no intention to start a fight. In fact, it turns out that they are protecting the village under Enri Emmot's orders. During their stay in Carne Village, he and his teammates are introduced to the Wise King of the Forest which Momon tamed.
After completing the request, Peter and his teammates leave with Nfirea to his house to collect the reward. However, a sinister presence is already there, waiting for them. Peter is killed at the hands of Clementine and Khajiit Dale Badantel as he attempts to buy time for Ninya and Nfirea to escape. Peter along with Lukrut and Dyne are then turned into zombies and are killed by Momon to free them of their fate.
