When they met, Limuel told him that he needs help for his brother Biboy who is possessed by an unknown evil spirit. He claimed that his brother even ate their dog alive which horrified Sigfried.
Biboy’s strange attitude started when his girlfriend left him for another man and he didn’t even discover who it was. Limuel was alerted when Biboy once called his daughter and told her that he will visit on the girl’s birthday and eat her. When Limuel discovered from the caller ID that it is Biboy who called her daughter, he seek for help on how to cure or stop the spirit from conquering Biboy’s body.

After that, they decided to bring Biboy to San Lazaro to get some help from the paranormal expert. San Lazaro is aslo well-known for horror stories about some who died after going there. Along the road, they experienced a lot misunderstanding and later settled for their purpose. They even met a guy who tried to rob them but was killed by Biboy out of hunger. Biboy craves for blood which made him very dangerous if get out from the car.
Since San Lazaro is very far from the city, Sigfried called his uncle and ask for help to neutralize Biboy while they are still on the road. This time, they used salt and made it as a necklace for Biboy to let him lead the way to where the spirit is located.
Later, they arrived to Sigfried’s uncle’s house and immediately started to ritual to set Biboy from the evil spirit but something unfortunate happened when his neck was bitten by Biboy. His vocal cord was damaged so he cannot speak and do the ritual anymore.
Sigfried took over and later discovered from his uncle that the spirit is hungry for a “dark secret” which was related on Biboy’s past when his girlfriend left him. Sigfried asked Limuel to whisper him a dark secret that no one knows. Limuel then whispered that he is “Captain Barbel”, the name of the guy in the cellphone whom Biboy was left out for by his girlfriend. This is where the spirit set free from Biboy’s body and everything’s back to normal.
