I think it's Ishar and Shalash.

I am relatively confident about Ishar because of the Bondsmith symbol. The lady though... not a fan of Vivenna, unless her role in the series is much bigger than I thought. Both her dress and her mask(s) make it seem like she is not in the Physical Realm, maybe a spren of some sort, maybe even the Nightwatcher. Who knows, it's too good to think!

If its a character on the level of a mortal (though she's pushing it), I say Shallash.

Otherwise Cultivation or the Nightwatcher, but of the two I lean towards Cultivation.

Initial instinct without looking closely was Honor and Cultivation.

But between the priests, pose and my thought that Ishar is Tezim and probably a big bad, I'll go with him for the left.  (Just can't imagine Honor in that 'bow before me I am so Holy' type pose.)

The right...seeing as the Nightwatcher HAS to be making some kind of appearance this book, it's probably her/Cultivation.

BUT, the dress and masks rreeaalllyyy make me think some kind of shapeshifter/illusionist.  (C'mon, that dress practically SCREAMS it.)

Which certainly could still be the Nightwatcher/Cultivation.  But that does seem off.  I suppose it could be Ash.

That dress looks odd. Like it is formed (or forming, given the mask she's holding) of some crystalline substance. Hmmm... crazy idea: could it be Shardplate? We already know Shardblades can change appearance, can Shardplate (a Sharddress)? It certainly doesn't look Alethi, actually, it doesn't seem to cover much at all.

Well, the woman has her safe hand covered. I wonder if she is on another planet, Braise or Ashyn, with Roshar in the background.

Agree with Ishar and much more inclined to believe Ishar = Tezim.

Oh, I just noticed, all three moons are visible behind the man. But only one is visible at a time in-world.

Meant to quote you in the post above.  I agree with Seawolf regarding this being Ishar and Ishar = Tezim.

Here's another idea - the man could be Melishi, the Bondsmith who turned the Voidbringers into parshmen. Running with that idea, the woman could be the spren Gavilar mentions in the prologue, the one responsible for the Listeners' transformations (she is vibrant, and the masks could point to that). A bit far-fetched for my normal liking, but I like it thematically.

Tinfoil time.

It's Shallan, lost in one of her disguises. 

(Edit: Originally I mistakenly remembered the Ghostbloods symbol as triangles, like the images earrings, but those earrings could still form a diamond-esque shape.)

I'd go with Braise and the woman being Shalash (and the man Ishar) , makes sense to feature two Heralds and Braize might be where they went inbetween desolations.

That's what I thought.

Whose? I really don't get it right now.

My mistake.  In my head the Ghostblood's symbol was a triangle.  There's an image floating around of three diamonds in the shape of a triangle, and I guess mentally I just cut out the middle man and made it a triangle.

That's what I get for working a double shift.

Though if you put those two triangles together you could get a diamond...

I think the woman is Cultivation and that the mask on the ground is mean to be Honor. The fallen mask appears to be somewhat masculine looking and has shards or splinters coming from it. I have no ideas about what the woman taking her mask off means.

Comparing the two figures to the images of the Heralds... the man looks like either Jezrien (without the crown) or Ishar (with a beard trim and without the baldness), but the woman doesn't seem to fit any of the images.

I keep thinking the picture on the left is the Circle of Memories, the Alethkar Oathgate. We see ten lamps and the eleventh could be behind the man.

Recently saw a theory that Taravangian would become a bondsmith...
