Dutiful, respectful, and kind are the words used to describe Soletus. However, even nice boys have their issues. His problems extends from a well meaning awkward and stern father. However, just because Soletus is all those things doesn’t mean he can’t be cocky and down right nasty if you rub him the wrong way. Very few people have managed to get on his bad side but, for some reason the author likes throwing them all at Soletus to deal with.
Fun Fact: Soletus is color blind. Also hinted at it a bit in story but also suffered from having a bad body image of himself thinking he’s too fat when he was younger. He was chubby as a boy and far too many people, save his father, got on him for it.

As Lyndon put it a “pity friend” of him and Soletus. Doran can be a good person but often times is overshadowed by his selfishness. He doesn’t like Mien for reasons yet to be stated.

Fun Fact: Doran family line, Shrike, has been in the Brotherhood just as long as Sheldmartain has.
Master First Warden Oeric’Sheldmartin
Soletus’s unyielding father with a troubled and vague past. He doesn’t want his son to repeat it. However, one can take such desires a little too far.

He’s some personal issue with his self-worth due to…spoiler, spoiler, spoiler, and isn’t a bad person. Just has moments of poor judgment.
