Lord Torkumen delayed aid to Rodel Ituralde's army in defending Maradon against an invading Trolloc army. Eventually, Ituralde's forces were permitted into the city at the latest possible moment. Ituralde visits him with Yoeli and names him Darkfriend. They were subsequently joined by Rand al'Thor, who single-handily decimated the invading Trolloc Army. Upon Rand's channeling, Vram and his wife Lady Torkumen were revealed to be Darkfriends. His wife threw herself out the window while Vram clawed out his own eyes.
