Timon retired from the secular life for a long time, taking refuge in Brother Paul's Monastery of St. Christopher, where he could again find peace. There, in the fall of 1658, he met Duncan MacLeod.
At the time, Duncan couldn't read English, so Timon gave him a book: Shakespeare's Macbeth, and offered to teach Duncan how to read it. Timon and the Scot became good friends.
Some weeks later, Timon left the monastery, ready again for the world. When he was out of sight, Brother Kalas appeared on the road, approaching as if to bid farewell. The deception ultimately cost Timon his head and Quickening.
The battle, however,was witnessed by MacLeod, who reported Kalas's treachery to Brother Paul. As a result, Kalas was forever expelled from the sanctuary of St. Christopher's.
