During the Idiran-Culture War, Twenty-seventh was with the Eaters on a Vavatch Orbital island. The Orbital was slated to be destroyed by the Culture and a shuttle was sent to evacuate the Eaters. The Eaters refused to board the shuttle and leave due to their beliefs but eventually Twenty-seventh decided to do so. He was captured before he could board and for breaking faith was eaten alive by Fwi-Song.
