He is encountered during the quest "Welcome to the Jungle," in which the Hero, along with Jin, find him in the ruins of his village. The zombie infection took his village completely by surprise, and wiped out most of its population. The Hero and Jin find him inside a hut, along with Mohakin, where he says that he will take Jin and the Hero to see Mowen if they do him a favor.
He gives the Hero the side quest "Casting Shadows," in which the Hero must retrieve a crate of supplies. Doing this earns Matutero's trust.
- "Last night a whole mob of those crazy motherfuckers came crashing in here like animals. It's amazing anyone is still alive."
