Mmmmmmm, you do have a point with Andy being exotic. However, this is mostly human. However, I kinda already set up the threads, unless there is a way I can delete them or have them moved. . . . . Ugh, that's what I get for rushing in without thinking.
Age question: Let's see, you are considered a man by the time you turn 16 in Galanor. The last time your character sees Colm is in You are old enough to go off to war and wed. So by the time the game starts, Colm will be 16. So 16 plus 16 might make your character around 32, however, if you want him to be younger, we COULD change the back ground story a bit and say that he had been away at school during Colm's childhood, but joined the war after his studies finished. That way he's younger and he and Colm are still strangers.
