Highprince Ruthar is allied with Torol Sadeas, a major enemy of Dalinar. Ruthar shares many of Sadeas's views. He doesn't feel passionate about ending the war with the Parshendi, and he is not a good or honest leader to his men. However, his alliance with Sadeas is only for personal gain, and he would turn against Sadeas if he thought it would be beneficial.
Ruthar lent out many of his Shardblades and Shardplate to be used in duels against Adolin. After Adolin Kholin wins all of the duels, all the Shards of his princedom were lost to the Kholin princedom. Only his personal Blade was left.
