"It's highly irregular, but I will adjust the lists to note that Jakob Hebel has presented himself for muster. Old men and children ... is this what the Empire has come to?"
Jakob's Son is only fifteen years of age, yet his sense of duty is strong. When the Order of the Griffon arrived in Grimmenhagen Village, his father was asked to serve again. Jakob Hebel is now an old man, unfit for combat even if he desired to fight; it falls to his son to take his place in defense of the Empire.
"Despite my father's wishes, I must go off to war. Just as he did his duty in the past, I must do mine. I will defend the Empire from these dark Marauders!"
