Jaime visited Mr. Longshadow in his search for Tye, after his mother told Jaime Tye often spent time with his grandfather. Though Holling had not seen Tye in a few weeks, he was sure he was all right. He believed Tye had gone on a journey of awakening that would connect him to his heritage. He also offered advice to Jaime, not to seek answers, as the answers would find him, and he would be at peace with the one inside him. The Scarab did not like that last remark, and Jaime left to restrain the Scarab.[3]
