Sort was assigned as Captain to Fiddler and Gesler's squads in the 14th to whom she was a stern but capable officer. After the Last Siege of Y'Ghatan, Sinn's mutterings convinced Sort to stay behind without permission and search for survivors whilst the rest of the army, in a hurry to arrive ahead of the plague, continued on its way to rendezvous with Admiral Nok on the north coast. As Sort was considered a deserter, her lieutenant, Madan'tul Rada, was promoted to Captain and assumed command of her company.
There was some suggestion that Sort was among the defenders of the Stormwall, but she denied it. Sort eventually admitted to having survived the Stormwall during the Bonehunter's march through the Glass Desert.
When Sort and the survivors caught up to the Bonehunters, she was restored to the 9th Company's command.
