It might be why his stats aren't visible: They aren't assigned by the world's Signamancy (or whatever mechanism it is) according to the unit's role. They're what we would recognize as physical attributes, changeable by the same means available to any of us.
It's an important clue to the mismatch between Parson and the magic that runs the wargame that is Erf, and an important clue to breaking that magic. Contra
Vinne, Parson's appearance is not a Sign, it's his appearance.
Also: Parson and Jack just launched what is probably Erf's first videogame. Awesome. Parson is about to become fearsome indeed. And it looks like he has finally found a caster who is as interested in his longtime project to learn about the combat system as he is.

type effect, with Sizemore opening a gaping crack in the ground even as Jack makes the landscape look unchanged?]
