Along with the rest of the Kron, Bek Okhan was summoned to the vicinity of Capustan for the Second Gathering. West of the city, their troop of fourteen thousand T'lan Imass intervened in a battle between four undead K'Chain Che'Malle K'ell Hunters and two decimated wings of Grey Swords. Recognising a war that needed to be fought, Pran Chole sent Okhan along with Bendal Home and Okral Lom, back to Capustan with Outrider Sidlis. The three were to meet secretly with the mercenaries' Mortal Sword, Brukhalian. The rest of the T'lan Imass tracked down the other hunters.
The T'lan Imass offered an alliance of sorts, finding the presence of the K'Chain Che'Malle unacceptable and expressing curiosity over the identity of the Pannion Seer. They offered to work with the Grey Swords until such time as they were needed for the Gathering. When Gethol, Hood's Herald, came to make Brukhalian a counteroffer, the three Bonecasters drove the Jaghut away.
Bek Okhan made clear to the Mortal Sword that the T'lan Imass would not fight mortal humans. He also informed Brukhalian that even then eighty K'ell Hunters were gathering a half-league to the north of the city. The Bonecaster promised the Hunters would never reach the city's North Gate.
