Ibra Gholan was among a group of Logros T'lan Imass hunting The Unbound, seven Logros renegades. His party included Monok Ochem, Olar Shayn, and Haran Epal. The group lost the renegades' trail in the Nascent, but stumbled upon Onrack T'emlava and Trull Sengar confronting a group of Tiste Liosan led by Seneschal Jorrude.
The Bonecaster, Monok Ochem, convinced the Liosan to participate in a ritual that would allow the entire group to escape the flooding fragment of Kurald Emurlahn. But the bonecaster did not reveal that the ritual would take the T'lan Imass separately to Kurald Thyrllan. Monok Ochem had determined that Jorrude's magic unwittingly came from some power masquerading as the Liosan god, Osseric. Monok Ochem also sensed that Onrack had been cut off from Tellann, and reminded him that he would have to be destroyed. Onrack took advantage of the ritual to propel himself and Trull to a different destination, narrowly escaping the bonecaster's ape form.
Once in the Liosan Warren, Ibra Gholan and the others located the false god in order to slay it. Afterwards, the clan chief and the bonecaster located and followed Onrack from a distance, thinking he meant to join the Unbound. Onrack ultimately determined that the Unbound meant to lead the Crippled God to the First Throne of the T'lan Imass to enslave them. Monok Ochem agreed to stay his judgement on Onrack while the four of them traveled to Quon Tali to protect the Throne. Ibra Gholan acquired a T'lan Imass spear and bow for Trull. Neither the bonecaster nor the clan chief were pleased to discover Shadowthrone's servants, Minala and the Company of Shadow, already defended the Throne.
The defenders of the First Throne faced numerous assaults from the Crippled God's allies, the Tiste Edur. Ibra Gholan and Onrack took turns guarding the natural chokepoint in the passage leading to the throne room while Monok Ochem kept his power hidden lest the Edur attack in greater force.
Eventually, the main Tiste Edur attack came. The warlock, Sathbaro Rangar, opened a gate for two hundred Edur warriors and sixty Letherii archers led by Kholb Harat and Saur Bathrada. They were also accompanied by Ahlrada Ahn as well as the champion Icarium and his companion, Taralack Veed. Monok Ochem veered into his Soletaken form and slew the warlock, but retreated when Icarium entered a rage. The windstorm generated by Icarium's anger burst into the throne room hurling the Bonecaster against the First Throne and killing him.
Ibra Gholan took the Bonecaster's place in the fight against the Lifeslayer. He drove the Jhag back with his attacks, until Icarium shattered his sword. Then the Jhag cut the T'lan Imass to pieces, shattering his skull and sending bone fragments in every direction.
