Karol meets Yuri Lowell, Estelle, and Repede at the end of Quoi Woods, where he mistakes the party for a monster and attacks. His fear causes him to swing uselessly around, allowing Yuri to stop his wild spin as well as breaking his weapon, which essentially creates the Karolian Hammer he begins the game with. Claiming to be a member of the Hunting Blades guild, he joins the party. He is the first to propose a solution to heal Halure's tree using a Panacea Bottle to counteract the monster blood poisoning it. Throughout the event, Karol talks about a girl who he wanted to show Halure's blossoms to. This girl is Nan, a member of the Hunting Blades, whom the party meets at Caer Bocram.
