Jost works in the fields with the other darkeyed children, helping to keep the polyps free of worms. Jost, along with the other children, resents Kaladin for being able to stay inside during the day, not realizing that he works hard at his studies all day long.

He plays with the other children in the village, including his brother Jest, Tift, Mord, Naget and Khav. He is the oldest of the group of children, and large for his age.

The two fight with wooden staves; though Kaladin loses the fight, he realizes how much he enjoys using a quarterstaff.
