Highprince Ruthar was a highprince of Alethkar on Roshar. His princedom was on Alethkar's eastern border.[2]


Ruthar is brawny with a short black beard surrounding his mouth, and blue eyes.[3] Despite his high political and military rank, he dresses very informally. His colors are red and light blue.[4]


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.[citation needed]


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.[5]
