After many battles he marked Conrad and worked with The Woede to track him down at Elancourt. He captured Néomi Laress and used her as a weapon against Conrad. He would let her go if Conrad allowed him to kill him.
Cadeon, wanting Conrad alive for information in his head cut Tarut's sword arm off and tried to kill him, but Tarut used Néomi as a human shield. After Cadeon mortally wounded her, he beheaded Tarut.
