Red is a darkeyed soldier who joined Highprince Vamah's call to arms. He joined with five of his buddies, all of whom are now dead.[1]

Red deserted the Alethi army, along with Gaz and others, because the lighteyes stopped fighting to win the war and started fighting for spheres instead.[1]

His first encounter with Shallan Davar is as a deserter/mercenary whilst in pursuit of her caravan on it's way to the Shattered Plains, Tvlakv and his crew as her escort.[2]

Red and his cohorts are then implored by Shallan to intervene in a slaughter before them and are convinced by her that they can erase their pasts and start over as heroes.[3]


He is a lanky, bearded man.[1]


Red, along with his fellow deserters, is an affable man who seized a chance to live a normal life again and is determined to hold to it. He maintained his discipline and was quick and eager to serve Shallan.[1]
