Ser Hugo Flint is one of the Major Characters that will join your household as an advisor. He pledged himself to your service for helping him avenge his wife, killed by the slavers, and thus, you cooperated with your quest. Ser Hugo starts as a Sworn Sword but becomes the Captain of the Guard for your House.
During quests Ser Hugo's advice is normally associated with the Realm alignment.
