The doll was the last/one off the last creations of Holly, a caster which Slately was in love with, if Erfworld had the concept of marriage she would have probably been queen of Jetstone*, and who died fighting in one of his wars, the closest RL world equivalent for Slately's situation would be to return home and to discover thieves have broken in and vandalised your late wife's belongings in search of cash.

Even without that, it would come down to hit points. Higher level warlords have more hit points, so she might survive when others die just because of that.
How he did it we don't know till now, but why he did it was quite clear Sylvia said so as she told us the story, Jeffichew loved her, she was probably lucky he was a Carnymancer, for Erfowlrd being a world rigged for war people still do a lot of incredible things for love.

I have no clue why it would be any better than any other pairing, e.g. Wanda tells Parson about her story with Haffaton and then he pairs up with Janis, because she sees him as a little flame when the whole world is a forest hex, so she wants to prevent Armageddon by giving him options to win battles in peace. He's got to like the idea of preventing attacks in a hex for a whole turn. Maybe it can be combined with some green dwagons casually breathing or maybe firefighting becomes impossible as well.
It's just how the forum works, every time a cool new toy/mechanic is revealed cue 3 pages pages of post about how Parson will use this ability to conquer Erfworld.
* I'm thinking if the world went from no cemeteries to full on gothic angel statue ones when Wanda linked with a Dirtamancer, inventing marriage might be only a Datemancer-Turnamancer link away.
