His partner is Kork. I guess I'll go for "former brother-in-law" as their relationship to one another.
Angus comes in to give Kork the news about his former spous' fate. Kork does show some sorrow after hearing this news. However, Sophen doesn't want to go back home. He looked for Kork wielding an axe to defend himself against bandits and also because he's too poor to afford a sword or a spear or armor so he just took an axe and shoved off. He'll stay in the army because it's too dangerous to go back alone so he seeks some protection with being with your powerful army. At least he won't have to fight alone.
Base Stats: Level 1
Reminds you a of Lot, kinda. So our Fighters don't have that much power but at least they're more balanced. However, Kork does have a lead in Strength, Defence and HP if you compare the two. But yeah, Sophen here is 23 while Kork is a bit over 10 years older.
