|Played By||Joanna Bool|
Ruth was the former love of Desmond for six years, and the two were planning to be married. Desmond, however, had second thoughts, and disappeared a week before the wedding with no explanation as to where he was going. Desmond later showed up to see Ruth, after being punched in the face by her brother, Derek. Desmond explained that he had one too many drinks one night and was awakened by a monk. Desmond then felt that it was his calling to join the monastery. Ruth then told Desmond that the next time he breaks up with a girl, that he should just tell her, instead of running away.
