Commander Shedao Shai chose Val to lead a group of Yuuzhan Vong warriors that entered the Pesktda Xenobotanical Garden on Garqi after Jacen Solo, Ganner Rhysode and Corran Horn fled there with a group of resistance fighters. He challenged Corran to a fight but Ganner stood in front of him. However Mushkil, a Noghri, stood in front of Ganner and Krag Val killed him. Ganner tried to engage Krag Val and he cut him in the face with his Amphistaff leaving a scar. Jacen attacked him and managed to slash him across the chest and knee, disabling him until Corran arrived. By that time the warriors were being suffocated because the bafforr pollen killed their armor. Krag Val died in his dead armor.
