In To Ride a Rathorn, he arrives at Tentir to give a "lesson" to the randon candidates about how to resist foolish commands from lesser Highborn. After matching wills with Gorbel, and losing, he orders Jame to make Brier kiss Jame's boots. Jame refuses, and tells him to "Back. Off." This turns out to be a command so powerful that it makes Corrudin walk backwards out of a window and fall two stories onto a tin roof, much to Gorbel's amusement.
Sheth tells Jame later that Corrudin suffered a cracked collarbone and many bruises; furthermore, he feels the constant compulsion to back up that can only be overcome with concentration. Sheth further tells her that in his opinion Jame would have done his house a service by killing Corrudin, but it might have caused civil war.
