I haven't been able to reveal much of Oreg's personality, but I see him as multifaceted. On one hand, he's a realist (as in this panel). On the other however, I haven't found an opportunity to show how he can be overly romantic (that is about valor, nobility, heroism, and fame). I foresee some long winded exhortations in the future. I suppose this panel kind of clashes with that part of his personality, but having experience with these monsters could affect his enthusiasm.
