Events of Red Dead Redemption 2

Arthur Morgan first hears about Dorkins from Reverend Swanson in camp, who suggests that Arthur should visit him. In Saint Denis, Arthur encounters Dorkins in person, asking for donations to help the poor. Regardless of whether Arthur gives him a donation, Dorkins asks for his help in rescuing a group of children who are secretly being held as slaves by the nearby fence, which Arthur accepts.

To do so, Arthur goes into the store and forces the owner to show him the basement. When he is in there, Arthur frees the children trapped inside and leads them to Brother Dorkins. Dorkins is very thankful for Arthur's efforts and offers him the donated money as a reward, which the player can either accept or decline.

Arthur sees Dorkins fairly soon afterward when he introduces him to Sister Calderón, who needs Arthur's help retrieving her stolen crucifix. Dorkins remains with Calderón until Arthur returns to her.
