Luesh is a steward of House Davar in Jah Keved on Roshar.[2] He is a member of the Ghostbloods.[3]

Appearance and Personality[edit]

He has a wrinkled, leathery face with well-worn frown lines.[4] He is able to gain the trust of the Davar children despite secretly deceiving them.[3]

History[edit]

Luesh joins the Davar household circa ? 1172, and he quickly becomes a confidant of Lin Davar.[4] Although he denies it, Luesh is presumably the person who gave Lin an illicit Soulcaster fabrial.[1] Luesh is trained to use the Soulcaster, and he and Lin work with a surveyor to create artificial marble deposits on Davar land,[2] significantly improving the family's previously dire financial situation.[5] Lin is able to leverage the restored name of House Davar to gain political influence in the Valam princedom,[4] likely positioning himself to become highprince.[1]

After Lin's death, the Davar children find the Soulcaster, which is now broken.[6] The family tries to have the fabrial repaired, but Luesh cannot make it function.[2] Desperate for money, Shallan soon devises a plan to steal Jasnah Kholin's Soulcaster.[1] After she sets out on her journey, Balat and Eylita inform her that Luesh died in his sleep, and that a pendant with a distinctive symbol was found on his body.[1] Furthermore, a group of individuals visited the Davar estate—one of whom had a tattoo of the same symbol on his hand—professing knowledge of the Soulcaster and demanding that it be returned, intensifying the need for Shallan to steal Jasnah's fabrial.[1] Balat concludes that Luesh was a plant all along, and that he acted as a liaison between Lin and his mysterious backers.[1]

Shallan learns that Kabsal had the same symbol tattooed on his arm, implying that he and Luesh belonged to an organization that Jasnah believes to be named the Ghostbloods; Shallan worries that her father was also a member.[3] She later confirms the existence of the Ghostbloods after meeting Mraize.[7]
