As with his fellow Quechuans, this man was superstitious. He believed in the curse of [[Temple of the Chachapoyan Warriors]] as he had been raised with it as it was intrinsic to the Quechua system of beliefs, reason for which [[Indiana Jones]], his employer, even sympathized with him and his comrades as he acknowledged that vague words of comfort couldn't dispose of centuries of superstition.<ref name="RotLA Novel"/> When confronted with several bats flying out of a statue, the cowardly porter screamed and fled for his life.<ref name="RotLA"/>
