Crivens first appears when Cooper first enters Ghoulhaven Hall looking for his girlfriend Amber. Entering into the Grand Hallway, wanting to know what the noise is that is disturbing his sleep, Crivens turns on the lights which reveals the presence of Imps, Frightened, he retreats back to the Trophy Room and leaves Cooper with the Imps, but helping him by lending him the Cook's Chair. After finishing the challenge, Crivens renters the Grand Hallway and greets himself to Cooper, giving him a map and taking back the chair. During Cooper's journey in the mansion, Crivens will come in and out, offering useful information and giving Cooper the Candle when coming across a Ancient Mummy. When Cooper reaches the Ye Old Archives and end of Chapter 1, Crivens unties Amber and reunites the two until Dr. Krackpot comes along and transforms Amber into a ghouly. Crivens then tells Cooper see the cook, Ma Soupswill and informs her about Cooper's visit.

The Baron revealing himself.

At the start of Chapter 3 when Cooper and Amber attempt to leave, Crivens gets Mr. Ribs to ask Cooper to see Crivens at his Quarters. Cooper agrees and finds Crivens hiding in a cupboard, away from a horde of Flying Imps. Cooper defeats them and Crivens exits the cupboard and convinces Cooper to go on another quest to find the three pieces of the riddle, a riddle that would open the door to the Baron's Quarters which has the key that would free the prisoners.

After Cooper collects the riddle and enters the Baron's Quarters he finds the Baron taking a beating from Crivens who has the key. Crivens then gives Cooper the key, but as he places on his hand he takes it away and bashes Cooper with it, taking off a mask and revealing himself to be the Baron all along, who states "you never guessed that the Butler did it".


  • Despite actually being the Baron, Crivens' information can still be accessed and will still give his own Butler's Brew.
  • Adding to that, in the Gaming Room there is a photo of Crivens face over a dart board with darts at his face, this means the Ghoulies don't even know who he really is, as well as the other staff residents.
  • After the Baron reveals himself as being the Butler, the Butler's Brew is not available for the boss fight with Baron, but is still available in Chapter 5 and all previous levels if replayed.
