Brethren were Crimson Guard Avowed who had died. Because of the Vow, and as long as the Malazan Empire stood, they were bound to the remaining Guardsmen. They appeared rather like ghosts and were used for messaging / communications and scouting.

Although beyond Hood's reach, they were never at rest, constantly agitating for the living Guard to complete the Vow.[1]
