During this time, he taught a young Corun about Tiresian culture and technology. The Spherisian Corun remembered Sorcen fondly as not being an evil being but a person that simply served an evil empire. One day, Spheris came under attack from the Invid and Sorcen quickly took Corun to safety. As the attack came, Sorcen threw the young Spherisian to another servant to save him when an energy blast struck thus killing the Tirolian. Corun would always be thankful to Sorcen for his sacrifice and used him as an example of the fact that not all aliens were evil. The Spherisian would later tell the tale of Sorcen to his son, Beryl.
In reality, Sorcen was not killed but captured by the Invid who transformed him into a cybernetic Servoid with no memory of his past. When young Beryl was captured, the Invid had the Servoid take the boy to the detention cells. After he did so, a flicker of memory came upon Sorcen and he believed that Beryl was his father - Corun. Thus, he became fixated on saving him and broke him out of the cell whereupon he attacked the Invid. Outside the Hive, Spherisians had arrived to rescue Beryl and Sorcen threw Beryl to Corun and urged them to run. Upon being shot in the back, Sorcen was left deactivated and the Invid wondered why he malfunctioned. They ordered his body to be taken back to Xeno-Biology where they intended to fix the Servoid once more.
