J'Kier and the other Hunters of Hircine are sent to kill Sinding, but some are attacked, leaving him as the only survivor. He can be found inside Bloated Man's Grotto, next to the dead Batum gra-Bar. He is mortally wounded, telling the Dragonborn to avenge them, and soon dies after being spoken to.
