Foreman was designed after an old boss named “The Little General”; that wasn’t his real name, it just was what everyone called him. He was a great guy though, he really cared about his team even if they didn’t believe that, and he always was safety concious and never asked us to do anything he wasn’t ready to do himself.
Foreman tries to reason with Fox Ulton early in the book to help his people leave Exile and flee the Vlux. Many support Foreman in his decision to leave town, but many are disappointed that they did not put up a better fight to stay. Foreman is not magical or mystical by any means and shows the hardship that the people had to endure because of mystical beings. Foreman also seems a little cowardice, but in the end shows he is a hero much like the rest.
