In Memories of Ice
Runter fought at the Siege of Capustan and at the Battle of Black Coral during the Pannion War. At Coral, the Bridgeburners were inserted into the city by Quorl under the cover of darkness. Their mission was to attack the keep of the Pannion Seer while High Fist Dujek led the rest of the army into the city itself.
Hedge, Spindle, Runter, and the other sappers gleefully planned the demolition of one of the keep's towers to gain entrance. Runter offered Hedge his advice on the best placement of the Moranth munitions, but Hedge irritatedly brushed him off.
Runter was among the casualties during the fighting in the keep. Like the other Bridgeburners who perished, Runter's body was placed in a sarcophagus within the throne room of Moon's Spawn after the battle by Anomander Rake. The failing Skykeep was then sent out over the Rust Ocean where it was presumed to have crashed into the sea.
In The Bonehunters
Ganoes Paran, now Master of the Deck, travelled to the newly reborn sea of Raraku. On its shores he performed a ritual to summon all of the dead Bridgeburners by name, including Runter. The sapper's face was fire-scorched and blasted, his death-grimace at first appearing like a grin, and he was the first to ask what he was doing there. Among the ranks, Hedge bragged this was not the first time this group of dead Bridgeburners had walked among the living, noting that they had twisted the hair of Korbolo Dom and his Dogslayers at the Battle of Raraku. Shank spoke directly to Paran, asking their former captain what he required. Paran requested that they help him find the Deragoth to destroy Dejim Nebrahl.
