After the civil war, Soben laid low, until Ercate Sorsbrent raised an army and began making conquests towards Ginchar. Soben ended up pledging his forces to Ercate, though distrustful of him in certain regards. At Ginchar, Viktor Greymane lost his life. Soben remained loyal to Ercate, and followed him towards Zanzifos to put down the Azure rebellion. Mordred Baldanes revealed himself and in a great battle outside of Zanzifos, Soben lost his life. His nephew, Cemal Soben, took on the mantle of Count in his stead.
