He lost a sea-battle against the corsair and his ship ended up scuttled on some shore rocks. He set out on land in search of a place to conquer with his remaining army of about 485. He met up again with Zitspike, who had been beached in a storm, and another fight broke out. He lost once more and 10 of his rats were killed. He and Zitspike went their separate ways after this but they both ended up in Mossflower woods.After a few battles Atran decided to seige the Redwallers but before that could happen Burglebuber Sixclaw got in the way of his plans and challenged the tyrant to a battle.
