He isn't very happy to learn that he is dead, much less that he is still in the catacombs. He tells his story of coming down to the catacombs with Burt and Lowden, searching for valuables to sell up top. They were ambushed by ghouls and the other two left him behind.
He speaks of his stash he doesn't want the villagers to pick though in the Buried Village, near Ojo's house. His stash is, in fact, just south of Marta's house, and contains only Quint's Poison Charm that can be given to Quint for a reward.
