Rugiewit is one of the three Ancient Elders serving Deirdre. He has a very long chin and a bit of beard. While generally humanoid-looking, he has a huge hump on his back, and his left foot is about half the length of his right leg. His left arm is so long that he seem to use it to support his weight instead of his left leg. He wields a tin staff in his right hand, which he uses effectively to fend off projectile attacks. Additionally, he can create an illusive copy of himself to confuse his enemies.
He was assigned by Deirdre to assist Fenir, and guarded the path out of the First Exhibition Hall of the Art Gallery, where he was slain by Shura. His death trigger a transformation of the space around him, melding the door and the wall together and blocking the way.
