Appearance and Personality
He is a long necked, slender man who speaks in an overly polite manner.
He involves ardents in his political maneuvers, an act which was both illegal and a violation of custom ever since the Hierocracy, however the tactic has become increasingly popular and is used by many lighteyes.
He is the only highprince to comment publicly on Dalinar's first announcement as Highprince of War. Torol Sadeas beat him and Roion to a gem-heart, but gave it to Hatham dismissively. Sadeas was jealous of Hatham's Ryshadium. He stayed reasonably quiet during the meeting which Shallan introduced herself to the court on the Shattered Plains.
Following the Battle of Narak and the advent of the Everstorm, most of the highprinces, including Hatham, relocated to Urithiru. Hatahm was named Highprince of Works, the highprince responsible for managing the kingdom's infrastructure, including both physical aspects of systems like sewage disposal and the civil service that carries out the necessary labor.
