托洛尔·撒迪亚斯（Torol Sadeas） is an Alethi Highprince on Roshar. He commands one of the most significant armies on the Shattered Plains, alongside Dalinar Kholin. He is the current Highprince of Information and owns a Shardplate and Dalinar Kholin's old Shardblade, Oathbringer. He is married to Ialai, a curvaceous woman who dyes her hair.
He has a bulbous head, curly hair and ruddy face. His Princedom's colors are green and white, but his shardplate is painted red. His shardplate is decorated, including tassels on his helm.
Sadeas is a cruel man who doesn't care about the lives of the bridgemen. He tried giving them shields once and took them away once the Parshendi began firing arrows into his soldiers and horses. In showing his cruelty towards the Bridgemen, Gaz approaches and tells Kaladin that Sadeas has ordered the wounded men of Bridge Four to not receive food or pay for the duration of time they can't run bridges.
Sadeas believes the Codes are a bunch of idealized nonsense, exhibiting Gavilar Kholin's death for his mistrust in their guidelines. His conviction for the Alethi way is indomitable, often not being able to reconcile with foreign ethics, such as the Codes and Dalinar's adherence to them.
Before Gavilar was assassinated, Sadeas and Dalinar were actually good friends. They maintain their respect for the other's abilities and appear cordial in person, but Sadeas secretly wants to outmaneuver Dalinar any way he can.
Sadeas is first introduced when he is participating in a hunt out on the Plains with Dalinar, Dalinar's two sons, Renarin and Adolin, and the King of Alethkar, Elhokar. Sadeas shows a consistent trait of his by taunting Dalinar over his lack of recent success in capturing gemhearts.
When they arrive at the plateau where preparations for the hunt are under way, a chasmfiend appears on the plateau with all the courtiers and scribes, instead of the smaller plateau the hunt was supposed to take place on.
Dalinar, Adolin, and Elhokar immediately dash for the chasmfiend, hoping to kill it before it hurts any bystanders. From a distance, Sadeas uses his grandbow to weaken it while Dalinar and Adolin go for its legs and Elhokar distracts it. At some point in the battle, Elhokar's saddle strap breaks, throwing him to the ground. To save him from being crushed, Dalinar, with Shardplate-enhanced strength, catches the claw that would have otherwise crushed Elhokar. Adolin continues to cut off its legs and the chasmfiend is eventually unable to support its own weight. Elhokar summons his Shardblade again and uses it to kill the chasmfiend, then harvest its gemheart.
Back in the pavilion on the Plains, Elhokar and Sadeas are conversing when Dalinar approaches. Elhokar remarks to Dalinar that Sadeas has won three gemhearts in the last few weeks, followed up by chiding Dalinar for not having won any himself in that time. Both Elhokar and Sadeas make use of the topic to highlight many of Sadeas' achievements, which Dalinar calls into question, especially the act of sending unprotected bridgemen against the Parshendi. While Elhokar notes that Sadeas' bridge crews are more efficient than Dalinar's, and is why he is able to win so many gemhearts, Dalinar is of the opinion that Sadeas' method wastes lives, to which Sadeas retorts that Dalinar's reliance on wheels to maneuver his bridges is foolish.
Sadeas shows he has the mindset of most Alethi when he can't reconcile how Dalinar could have more important things to attend than the war and vengeance for Gavilar. While Dalinar takes a moralistic stance, a very un-Alethi way of thinking, Sadeas is only concerned with efficiency and results. From this point on the argument deteriorates until Sadeas insults Dalinar's sons, which is diffused only by their mutual understanding for the safety of the king, not allowing their rivalry to descend into open conflict.
It is revealed Sadeas and Dalinar planned to manipulate Highprince Vamah into using more of Elhokar's Soulcasters, proving the two of them can work together in the best interests of the king. During the night of Gavilar's assassination, Sadeas acted as a decoy in an attempt to lead Szeth-son-son-Vallano away so Gavilar could escape. Dalinar tells Adolin that Sadeas has sworn to protect Elhokar at any cost.
Dalinar has been investigating the cut girth strap on the king's saddle but at one particular king's feast, Elhokar announces that in light of the recent attempt on his life with the saddle, he is appointing Sadeas to Highprince of Information to investigate. This is to spite Dalinar who Elhokar believes is not taking the investigation seriously. Sadeas learned of Dalinar's request to be Highprince of War and this is Sadeas' way of outmaneuvering his opponent.
Sadeas has been investigating the cut girth strap. Dalinar is insistent that Sadeas reveal the results of the investigation, to which Adolin is convinced Sadeas will use the opportunity to incriminate Dalinar and turn the other Brightlords against him. This conviction is punctuated by Sadeas saying to Dalinar, “You asked for this, old friend.”
Even Dalinar himself is tense at Sadeas' proclamation, given for all in attendance at the king's feast to hear. Sadeas had the strap sent to three different leather-workers who all concluded the strap had been cut – the leather was relatively new, as shown by its lack of flaking and cracking, and the tear too even.
To answer when it was cut, Sadeas interviewed many on the hunt and they all reported the same oddity: Dalinar and Elhokar storming off for the rock formation, leaving the two alone. Though this presented a problem, a problem that Sadeas discovered in the king's Plate: Eight of the ten sapphires used to infuse the king's plate had been damaged, noting how highly improbable this would seem at Adolin's protests (who still thinks Sadeas suspects Dalinar), because a simple fall off horseback wearing full Plate would be ineffective and only two or three sapphires usually need replacing after a battle. Someone had to have sabotaged the Plate.
Next, Sadeas brings out one of the grooms in the king's employ, asking him to repeat what he told Sadeas in private. The groom confirmed the saddle had been checked over in Dalinar's camp, but also noted that the horse was wearing a different saddle on the way to Dalinar's camp from the king's. In his personal opinion, Sadeas proclaims that the strap had been cut in Dalinar's camp to cast suspicion on Dalinar, and that Dalinar had no hand in the plot. This shocked both Adolin and Dalinar, both on their toes waiting for Sadeas to convict Dalinar. Despite their rivalry, Sadeas does not want to claim a victory so easily. While he may be cruel, he still makes logical decisions.
Right after being vindicated, Dalinar proposed that Sadeas and he work together in capturing the Tower, a plateau out on the Plains notoriously unconquered due to it being so close to the Parshendi side. Dalinar suggests combining forces to which Sadeas agrees only after they can agree on the split of rewards. Especially a Blade.
As both men approached the Tower they could see the Parshendi had not yet extracted the gemheart from the chrysalis. Sadeas wanted to attack the Tower together, a “single grand wave of attack, across forty bridges!” Dalinar refuses, saying he will attack only after Sadeas has made a landing point for Dalinar's bridge crews, citing the Codes again.
The plan went accordingly for a time. Sadeas managed to get his forces across the bridges and onto the Tower, carving out a landing platform for Dalinar to follow. Both forces were separated by the Parshendi, Sadeas to the west, Dalinar on the eastern edge, fighting inward. When another Parshendi force appeared behind Dalinar, Sadeas retreated to the northern plateau, pulling the eight bridge crews he'd leant Dalinar with him. He had abandoned Dalinar Kholin.
Upon Sadeas' returning to camp he is met by Navani Kholin and he has to be the harbinger of grave news. He offers his condolences and makes excuses to make it appear as if he tried all he could to save Dalinar but was ultimately overwhelmed by the Parshendi himself and forced back. Sadeas offers vengeance, claiming Dalinar was both a friend and an ally, shortly before Dalinar himself shows up, alive.
Sadeas attempts to reconcile with Dalinar, offering an apology that Dalinar accepts publicly. However, the two step up close so no-one can overhear them and when Dalinar asks why, Sadeas claims he was upholding his oath: “Protect Elhokar. Protect this kingdom.” Gavilar obeyed the Codes and died from that “weakness.” Sadeas is of the mind that Elhokar is being influenced in a similar way by Dalinar's insistence of the Codes, beginning to worry when the king talks of retreating from the Plains, as Dalinar had wanted. Their friendship had been over a long time as Sadeas just wanted him gone.
Before leaving, Dalinar asked Sadeas to give him the members of Bridge Four in a promise he made to Kaladin. Sadeas refused the initial offers, he would not give up his bridgemen for a thousand broams each, he said. Dalinar summoned his Shardblade and drove it point first in the earth before Sadeas and offered up his Blade in exchange for every brigdemen in Sadeas' camp. Sadeas appeared shocked but agreed, gaining the Blade he always desired.
