Kamist Reloe was a High Mage originally in the Malazan military under Korbolo Dom. He was described as gaunt to the point of skeletal, with grey hair cut to a stubble, a tightly curled, iron beard, and sunken eyes.
Kamist was believed to have been killed in Raraku ten years before the Whirlwind rebellion in a clash with Sha'ik Elder over who was destined to lead the Apocalypse. But this was apparently a ruse.
When the Whirlwind was unleashed, he emerged as the early leader of the army of the Apocalypse after Fist Coltaine and the Malaz 7th Army were driven out of Hissar. His army first clashed with Coltaine at the Battle of Bat'rol, but they were soundly defeated. Reloe continued to pursue the train of Malazan soldiers and refugees across Seven Cities in what came to be known as the Chain of Dogs.
Despite a constant stream of reinforcements, Reloe saw defeats at Sekala Crossing and Gelor Ridge. Duiker said he made a poor military leader, relying on overwhelming numbers rather than tactics. Overall command of the army soon fell to Korbolo Dom, a former Malazan Fist.
