Rathalas (c. 1163)
Perethom participated in the destruction of Rathalas as a highmarshal of the Kholin army. Perethom took Dalinar's orders to have his men prepare oil and flaming brands for a nighttime assault on the city. He presumably led the charge on the walls of Rathalas, eventually securing a section of the wall in a furious, bloody fight. Teleb and Sadeas—both Shardbearers—subsequently joined the fight and routed the last of the defenders. After that, Dalinar ordered the entire city burned.
Shattered Plains (1173)
A decade later, Perethom served as Dalinar's infantrylord on the Shattered Plains, commanding his foot soldiers. When a chasmfiend was spotted and the Kholin army decided to go on a plateau run, Perethom notified Dalinar that his second and third battalions were on duty.
