While heading to the nearby settlement of Carne Village, his team rescued a little girl named Nemu Emmot who was fleeing to get help to save the village from Chaos Beasts. The adventurers journeyed with her to the village to save what was left when they met the protagonist, Surako and Narberal Gamma. The two groups then decided to help one another and Peter and his team provided information on the current situation of the world.

Together they managed to drive the Chaos Beasts and Contaminated Beasts off, when the members of the Sunlight Scripture led by Ian Als Heim arrived. Though the Scripture was not originally here to evacuate the villagers but on their own secret mission, Ian agreed to left some of his men to escort the villagers to safety to the city of E-Rantel. But the Scripture guides could depart, Peter and his friends went into the forest to search for the missing Enri Emmot, Nemu's sister, and Morgan. However it was too late for Enri as she was killed by a Quadruped Chaos Beast. The adventurers and Nazarick agents then traveled back to the village to bury her remains. Peter would part ways with the protagonist as he and his team would help the Scripture escort the villagers to the city. While traveling with the refugees, the convoy was attacked by a Giant Chaos Beast. Peter and his friends were nearly killed when the protagonist and his friends came to the rescue and managed to defeat it.[5]

Later while resting in the Adventurer's Guild in E-Rantel, he discussed with his team of a rumor on the location of one of the Swords of Darkness belonging to the Black Knight. The discussion attracted the attention of Lakyus Alvein Dale Aindra who wanted to seek out the sword which was suspected to be Hyumilis. Even though adamantite adventurer explained that only she could safely wield it, the Swords of Darkness joined her and Gagaran on the quest to see the legendary weapon. In the end though it turned out to be just a monster infesting a magic sword.[6] Peter would encounter the protagonist, Narberal and Slimeko again in E-Rantel, searching for information on the hauntings around the vicinity of the Tob Forests. Peter's team provided their assistance by telling Narberal about the Harvest Festival and its significance.[7]

A couple of weeks after Jaldabaoth attacked E-Rantel, Peter accepted an invitation from the protagonist to attend an adventurer tournament to raise the spirits of the city after the traumatizing attack. A day before the start of the event he reunited with the protagonist and Surako at the city square.[8] Peter's team were up in the second match of the tournament where they were scheduled to fight against the adamantite adventurer Soi. However she made a change in the match to have the Swords of Darkness fight against her friends Shall and Ku. Peter accepted the change with no problems and the sliver ranked team were defeated by the duo much to his team's shock. Peter and with his team spent most of the tournament cheering on the newcomers in their matches. At the final match, to give the resident of the city a good show, the Swords of Darkness joined the other adventurers in fighting against the Dark Warrior.[9]

During the phenomenon that caused the land around E-Rantel to be bathed in a continuous day, Peter was in the city with his team. At the guild he and the Sword of Darkness met up with Darkness to discuss what could be the cause of the extended day. Though knowing that the phenomenon was making the city residents nervous, Peter tried to cite the pros of the lasting sun as it meant no more sneak attacks from enemies at night. However the protagonist counterargued the devastating cons that the continuous day could bring to the weather and environment. After Clementine came over to ask the protagonist and his team to attend a consultation meeting to address the strange event, Peter and his team offered to help by gathering information from the other adventurers.[10]
