The first time he appears is when he tells Rean Schwarzer and Elliot Craig to step aside in order to let the nobility through on the first day of school.
The next time he speaks to Rean during Makarov's class, introduces himself and invites him to the noble's saloon. Elliot explains to Gaius Worzel that the Hyarms family is very prestigious but slightly lower in the class system then the Albarea family, after that sentence, Patrick glares at Elliot. When Jusis Albarea comes to help Rean to turn Patrick's request down politely, he also asks him, why he was not invited first. Patricks justifies himself saying, that Jusis had been invited plenty of times but he always turned them down. After the conversation, Patrick leaves.
