Jest is a darkeyed man from Hearthstone in Alethkar on Roshar who grew up with Kaladin.[1]

Jest was born into a typical Hearthstone family of the fourth or fifth nahn. His parents are farmers, and his father spent time as a soldier.[1][2] He is of the Vorin faith and refers to the ardents' teachings that men must become warriors to fight for the Tranquiline Halls. Kaladin cites Jest's name as an example of a 'solid, Alethi darkeyes' names, unlike his own.[1]

As a child, Jest worked in the lavis fields outside of Hearthstone with the other darkeyed children of the village, helping to keep the polyps free of diggerworms. When they were not working, Jest played with the other children in the village, including his brother Jost, Tift, Mord, Naget, and Khav. Jest and the other children were bitter that Kaladin was able able to stay inside during the day, not realizing that he worked hard at his studies all day long.[1]

In 1166, Jest observed a fight between Kaladin and Jost.[1]
