Python at first doesn't allow Alm and friends to enter the Deliverance Hideout. However, it was explained to him that they were new recruits. He allows them to enter, and tells them to be careful of the monsters within. After Alm returns with Clive, he agrees to help them with liberating Zofia Castle.

- In Gaiden, promotion gains consist on giving the character as many points as necessary -the "x" value shown in the table- to reach the promoted class' base stats. If the character's stats are higher than their promoted class' base stats, they will not receive any bonus; however, if all stats are higher, then they will receive +1 to HP.

Personality and character

Python is somewhat apathetic to the world around him, and only joined the Deliverance due to superior pay to his previous carpentry job in addition to Forsyth's insistence. Python and Forsyth have known each other since childhood; Python thinks of Forsyth as a, perhaps naive, dreamer. Python, however, prefers to take a more objective view on life, and pays little heed to dreams and instead focuses on obtaining necessities.
In order to protect villages from plundering bandits, he put all his effort into serving as the captain of a vigilante group.
Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
If Forsyth survived
While the One Kingdom offered him a knighthood, Python chose a quieter life as head of a frontier militia that defended villages and towns from brigands. His old friend would visit now and then, often with a bottle the two would use to wile the night away.
If Forsyth died
Python accepted a knighthood from the One Kingdom, growing into a new man who worked diligently—almost as if possessed by Forsyth. Sadly, he died a few short years later while fighting to suppress a rebellion, his wounds claiming him while he was far too young.

- "...You want to talk? 'Bout what? ...About me? Hell, I'm no one special. Pa was a carpenter, and I'm less still. The only reason I joined the army was because it pays better. The world can rot so long as I've still got food on the table. Oh, but don't worry! I'll fight and all that noise. I'm nothing if not diligent. Ha ha ha." — Python to Alm in a base conversation, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
- "...How did I end up in the army? Not this again. Well, if you have to know, Forsyth talked me into it." — Python to Alm in a base conversation, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
- "We grew up together, see? He's a dreamer, that one. When he was little, he said he'd be a Knight of Zofia one day. Hah! He'd have to go back in time and crawl into some noble womb first." — Python, on Forsyth to Alm in a base conversation, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
- "Look, I'm not like other folks. I don't like chasing wildly after some dream. Dreams don't fill the belly, and they sure don't pay for life's other comforts. So you know what? I'm happier without 'em." — Python to Forsyth, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
