Locarno may have had similar traits to Paris, but with his backstory, he would be a character who was continually getting into trouble because he felt compelled to buck authority at many points. At least Paris' backstory, the son of an unloving military leader, gave room for him to be redeemed. He might be trusted; Locarno cannot.
Wouldn't that actually make Locarno a more interesting character, then ?
