At the time of his death in The Warrior's Apprentice, Piotr's full title was General Count Piotr Vorkosigan as he was a general in the Barrayaran Military. He led guerrilla forces during the first Cetaganda Invasion at the end of the Time of Isolation. Largely because of his efforts and skills, the Cetagandans were driven back.
He is the 9th Count Vorkosigan and the first to die of old age. According to his daughter in law, Cordelia Naismith Vorkisigan, "Counts Vorkosigan have come to horrible ends throughout your history. You've been blown up, shot, starved, drowned, burned alive, beheaded, diseased, and demented. The only thing you've never done is die in bed."
- Barrayar, Chapter 9
