When an imposing northerner stomps down the stairs of the inn they have taken refuge at in Windside, yelling at the patrons about something being stolen, Quentin speaks up and says that the northerner had lost his ring. The northerner at first accuses Quentin of the theft, until his attention switches to Thomas and James. After the ordeal is over with, Quentin talks to the boys and seems a bit cocky, saying that he could have figured out the problem and they just saved him from walking up the stairs. The boys are quickly impressed with him, however, when he goes into detail about their background it arouses their suspicion of him.
Quentin Locke later meets Thomas and James again in his persona as the servant Bell, who accompanies a local nobleman, Ethan Kreel, on an expedition to hunt Balverines. When it is revealed that Ethan Kreel was in fact a member of the mysterious Balverine Order, Quentin Locke reveals his identity to Thomas and James after rescuing them from a Balverine transformation in the Balverine Temple. Informing the Balverine hunting duo of weapons to be claimed under the Kreel Manor, he leads them to a chamber that houses the weapons that belonged to the Triumvirate, a legendary group of Heroes. Found to be "worthy," Quentin Locke temporarily becomes the Hero of Skill, wielding the Black Dragon. Charging back to the Balverine Temple to destroy the Order, Quentin Locke aids his allies in the battle before finding himself cornered by Sabrina Kreel, Ethan's daughter and the lover of Thomas. Despite his affection for her, Thomas comes to Quentin's defense, running her through with his blade. Her death is quickly followed by that of Ethan Kreel and the Order's leader, Lugaru.
