For Benjamin Slightman Jr., see Ben Slightman the Younger
His son was not safe from the Wolves because he had a twin that died as a child, but he still had the twin chemicals in his brain. Slightman Sr. could not bear to lose all of his children. This is ironic because his child died in the Wolves' attack anyway.
The extent of his cooperation was to tell Finli O'Tego how the town planned to respond to the coming of the Wolves. He would tell Finli through the Dogan where all the children would be on the day of the attack and who would stand against them.
