Upon meeting the Band of the Red Hand, Karede threatens Thom and Mat that he and his men are going to pin him until Chisen arrives unless they leave Tuon to him. According to him, Chisen and his hundred thousand men are two days away and when they arrive, the Band will be slaughtered. Mat, however, knows from his scouts that the army is heading the wrong way and already is five days away (KoD, Ch. 36).
