Restares is an Alethi Brightlord and the presumed leader of the Sons of Honor, a group which seeks to bring the Heralds back to Roshar. He is working with Amaram and advised him to steal both the Shardplate and Shardblade that Kaladin had won in killing the Shardbearer, Helaran.[1] King Gavilar mentioned him as a potential suspect behind his assassination before Szeth revealed that the Parshendi had employed the Assassin in White instead.[2]

Warning Book Spoiler: Significant plot details follow.

Mraize is aware of Restares, and that both the Ghostbloods and the Sons had been competing for information about Urithiru for some time.[3]

Following the creation of the Everstorm, Restares receives a letter, written in glyphs, from Amaram:

I can only conclude ... that we have been successful, Restares. The reports from Dalinar's army indicate that Voidbringers were not only spotted, but fought. Red eyes, ancient powers. They have apparently unleashed a new storm upon this world.

... I do not exult in this success ... . Lives will be lost. It has ever been our burden as Sons of Honor. To return the Heralds, to return the domination of the Church, we had to put the world into a crisis.

That crisis we now have, a terrible one. The Heralds will return. How can they not, with the problems we now face? But many will die. So very many. Nalan send that it is worth the loss. Regardless, I will have more information soon. When I next write you, I hope to do so from Urithiru. [4]
