Jorrude and his other three companions encountered and had a brief clash with Onrack and Trull Sengar in the Nascent. They were then forced to co-operate with Sengar, Onrack and several other T'lan Imass in order to escape the shattered Warren. This ritual allowed the T'lan Imass to kill the demon posing as Osserc.
Now in Seven Cities, they recovered and were able to track down the intruders to the Bonehunters camped outside Raraku's centre: Gesler, Stormy, and Truth. However, after a near fatal encounter with Malazan sappers, they elected to retreat to their own Warren.
Brother Jorrude was with Jayashul, L'oric, and the Army of Light to investigate the Chaos Whorl created by Yathengar in Kurald Emurlahn. He had an openly hostile expression when Kiska, Jheval, and Warran stumbled upon the camp and were invited to dinner by Jayashul, the army's commander. After L'oric revealed Jheval's true identity the trio were arrested. When Jheval escaped, Jorrude led a detachment of guards to Kiska's tent to search for him.
