Ruth, or Tsattie ("Grandma"), is Shannon Adama's mother. She lives with her son-in-law, Joseph Adama, and her grandson, William Adama. She runs the household. Her last name is unknown.

The most important things to her are family and the Tauron heritage. ("Rebirth")

After the deaths of her daughter and granddaughter, she recommends that Joseph take William home to Tauron to experience his roots. Ruth says this is what her daughter would have wanted. Joseph refuses saying that William was born on Caprica and that Caprica is his home. ("Pilot")

She tells Joseph, "The dead don't really die until their death is avenged. My daughter and your daughter are caught between life and death." Joseph says Daniel Graystone will pay for Zoe's complicity in the STO bombing of the MAGLEV train. ("Gravedancing")

She doesn't tell Joseph that his son is skipping school. She tells Willie, "On Tauron, when you're 13, you're a man. You make your own decisions." She asks him what he wants to be, not when he grows up, but right now. He tells her. She tells him his Uncle Sam can look into it because he knows how to make things happen. She also says that you get the best things from enemies because they're scared of you. ("Gravedancing")

Ruth likes Evelyn and thinks she would be good for Joseph. She suggests that Evelyn come over one night to go over the next day's work with him. She mentions that she and Willie will be with her sister that evening. ("False Labor")

She is a former hitwoman for the Ha'la'tha. When Francis is strangling Joseph (the Guatrau has put out a hit on Joseph and Sam), she stabs Francis in the back with a meat cleaver, killing him.("Here Be Dragons")

Five years later, Ruth is still with the family even though her familial connections with the Adamas are no longer living. ("Apotheosis")

TriviaEdit
