Perethom is a lighteyed Alethi highlord on Roshar.[2] He served as one of Dalinar Kholin's officers for many years, and Dalinar considered him a good soldier and a good friend.[3][1]


Rathalas (c. 1163)[edit]

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.[4]

Shattered Plains (1173)[edit]

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.[3]

Perethom, along with Havar, Ilamar, and six thousand other members of the Kholin army, died during the Battle of the Tower after Sadeas's betrayal of Dalinar.[1]
