Yes my dear.. he’ll be fine.., after he downs a pint.

I've heard of a medical condition where a person's brain runs "too sober", and their brain only operates normally when they have a couple drinks in their system.

This would probably make a good excuse... if there were any confirmation of it outside of satire novels.

Also... that would not explain the stomach issues.

Hector is in constant pain thanks to the fact that his body reacts very poorly to the magic keeping him alive/immortal. (he's already lived 700 years past his species' lifespan)

As a Werewolf he can no longer get Drunk. (lycanthropy regen makes it impossible to poison a werewolf with anything but wolfsbane or other specific herbs) He can however enjoy the pain-numbing effects of Alchohol so he does.

And before you ask "why not just take asprin/painkillers" Hector would rather be addicted to something that would be less-harmful longterm to his body which ironically alchohol is enough of a better alternative to be considered a long term painkilling solution.

*Nods.* I was attempting to joke with a reference to a book series, and it clearly failed.

I should have made it more clear that I was familiar with Hector's condition, and I apologize if having to give the explanation again has been a bother, and I thank you for reiterating the explanation here.

Poor Hector has it pretty rough.
