The current character I am playing has descent martial skills (8), but not enough to lead any troops. This is quite common for me, it is more often I let other characters with higher martial skills lead.
However, quite often I gain a military trait anyway, just now I chose to be an inspring leader.
My question is. Does this trait matter at all if the character doesn't lead any troops? Is the currently played character participating in the battles anyway?
Somehow it seems so, since I gained the trait, but I still suspect it doesn't matter unless I assign him as a leader.
