Four always needs men. Don't worry. I brought a special batch for it.

—Laresh to Gaz[1]

Laresh was a soldier that worked in the Sadeas warcamp on the edge of the Shattered Plains on Roshar.[1]

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Laresh is a tall man and has yellow-and-black hair.[1]

He is not a particularly sympathetic to the bridgemen's plight.[1] He joined Gaz in mocking the bridgemen and saved the worst of the recruits for Bridge Four.


Laresh worked in the duty tent, and brought the bridgemen to replace those killed in the plateau runs.[1] Early in Kaladin's time as a bridgeman, he brought two groups of recruits to reinforce the bridges. He gave the first group, which was composed of smugglers, to a different bridge. Laresh saved the second group, a particularly ragtag looking bunch of men, to reinforce Bridge Four.


  • In the tenth anniversary leatherbound edition of The Way of Kings, Laresh was removed from the story and his role was given to Lamaril.[2]
