That's how adoption works, right?
Barbarian named Gurgeh happens upon the Halfing Bard (me, guest playing for the month) running towards danger.
Barbarian: Baby-man! What are you doing here? Where is your Dad?
Bard: I… I’m not a child.
Barbarian: -fails Int check to tell she’s an adult Halfling- No. No. Where your Dad?
Bard: (irritated and in a hurry) He’s not here!
Barbarian: Oh. Okay. Gurgeh your Dad now!
