In From Dusk Till Dawn, he talks to Earl when he walks into the liquor store. After Earl gets a beer, Pete tells him he's by himself that day and he gets a bottle of Jack for him. After Earl goes to the restroom, he is confronted by Seth and Richie about possibly informing the Ranger. He tells him he didn't and before they can continue any further, Earl comes back out. Pete continues to talk to him and before anything can be said, Earl is shot and killed by Richie. An argument begins and the brothers began shooting at him. Pete manages to shoot Richie in the hand and tries to get advantage against them, but to no avail. He is set on fire due to Seth lighting a roll of toilet paper and throwing it at him, with later confirmation that the fire killed him.
He had slicked back, dark brown hair at medium length and blue-green eyes. He wears a type of shirt that looks similar to a Hawaiian one with a gray shirt underneath.
He is shown to be friendly and can hold a conversation well with his customers. He shows fear of the Gecko brothers due to them having the advantage of killing him, the two hostages and Earl. He can be brave as he shot Richie and tried to shoot at both brothers before he is killed.
