He and the rest of Ripper's gang tormented Giles, a former guard turned farmer, who moved into the Brightwood area. What started as minor skirmishes quickly escalated after Ethan kills Jennifer, Giles' wife.
Upon hearing of Giles' situation, the Hero of Bowerstone has two options in order to solve Giles' problem.
Firstly, the Hero can choose to help him, thus starting the Cold Comfort Farmer quest. After talking to Giles, the Hero heads to Ripper's camp and wipes out his entire gang. Once all of his men are dead, Ripper chooses to confront the Hero, but is bested and surrenders. The Hero can then choose to kill him outright, or take him to Giles. Once he is Giles' prisoner, Giles binds him and escorts him to Bowerstone where he will be hanged for his crimes.
Alternatively, the Hero can choose to help Ripper, thus starting the Red Harvest quest. The Hero assaults Giles' home, killing many guards that have been stationed there, and eventually Giles himself. Once Giles is dead, the Hero receives a key to his basement, where they find Giles' Manuscript - a journal detailing Giles' pursuit of the Ripper gang back when he was a guard. The journal details a raid in which Giles and numerous other guards rushed into a cave in which the Ripper gang was hiding. They were unable to make an arrest, as all the guards fell into fits of hysterics upon see Ripper and many of his cohorts dressed up in frilly womens' clothing, dancing and singing. Once the manuscript has been read, Ripper, Ethan, and another crony confront the Hero and attack, only to be killed.
- If the Hero sides with Giles and plays through the Cold Comfort Farmer quest, then Ethan is never specifically encountered, though he is referenced when Ripper tells Giles that he didn't kill Jennifer. Ethan was likely killed along with the other unnamed members of Ripper's gang.
