He is eventually tracked down by Timias, the squire of Prince Arthur, and together with his two brothers, the Forester battles Timias. Timias kills all three of them, but he is gravely wounded himself, only surviving thanks to the help of Belphoebe.
The Forester is a representation of wild lust and lawlessness, and is also associated with the wildness of an untamed forest.
