When Monte first meets the group, he tries to get rid of them immediately. But when Rollan catches on that HE was the man they were looking for, Monte ran. At least, until he was finally convinced to take them to Barlow. On the quest to finding Arax, he told many stories and was very chatty, until the battle with Arax where Barlow died. He then went to Sunset Tower and renewed his Greencloak vows in honor of him.
