Holding the rank of praetor, she was in command of the carrier Koramund when it was attacked by the zerg in orbit of the planet Vanass. Her command crew was killed when the enemy boarded the ship's bridge and caused the ship to crash on the surface.
Quordas herself surivived long enough to realize that one of her most trusted lieutenants, Tenzaal, had betrayed her to crash the Koramund and prove the uselessness of the fleet's remaining carriers. The two struggled in Quordas' quarters, and the Praetor was fatally stabbed in the abdomen. In her dying moments, she signaled third engineer Iaalu to take her khaydarin amulet.
