Rautos, Taxilian and Taralack are obvious.
Breath is, of course, Feather Witch.

But what about Sheb? Nappet? Last? Asane?

On a reread, just curious if they are people we have seen before.

Personally I think some of them are pretty old ghosts. I forgot which one it was (Last, maybe?) but he seems to recall a time when the Letheras area is just struggling farmland. There are ghosts everywhere, of course, because Gothos's ritual has stopped them all from going to Hood's Realm for millennia.

They came with white hands and left with red hands.

Actually Last could in fact be Trull Sengar's Ghost.

I always assumed that was a ref to Icarium's confrontation with Trull, but i like your theory and the timing isn't ridiculous, considering Trull's death was closer to Iccy triggering his machine than Feather Witch's.

It's an intriguing idea, but Last was a Letherii farmer:

Quote

He had once been a farmer. He was certain of that much, but trouble had befallen him. Debt? Perhaps, but the word was stingless, as far as Last was concerned, suggesting that it was not a haunting presence in his mind, and when memories were as few and as sketchy as were his, that must count for something.


..and there are several more passages that call him a farmer, where he references the Errant and there's also a memory to his childhood and dead mother and stuff.

Perhaps he was one of the Demon Farmers? They had a bit of trouble befall them! ;)
