Each hook can randomly trigger a special opportunity quest for that hero and a required helper. After a hero completes an opportunity quest, the associated hook is resolved and the hero gains a [[promotion]] and a bonus to [[retirement age]]. The first hook grants +10 retirement age, the second hook +7, and the third hook +5.
You are limited to 1 opportunity quest in chapter 1 and 2 in each other chapter. Each hero can only resolve 1 hook per campaign and can only be the helper once per campaign. A hero's first hook requires at least a level 3 [[relationship]] with a prospective helper, the second hook requires at least a level 4 relationship, and the third hook requires a level 5 relationship. A [[family]] member can never be the helper.

A powerful marker that changes how the character might interact with events, and also acts as a seed for the character to undergo a specific quest; applied by history and sometimes events. Hooks are fundamentally just aspects with a special naming convention and some extra tooling around them.

Heroes start the game with 3 hooks, which are specific character aspects and often take the form of a personality flaw or quirk.

Opportunity quests

Each hook can randomly trigger a special opportunity quest for that hero and a required helper. After a hero completes an opportunity quest, the associated hook is resolved and the hero gains a promotion and a bonus to retirement age. The first hook grants +10 retirement age, the second hook +7, and the third hook +5.

You are limited to 1 opportunity quest in chapter 1 and 2 in each other chapter. Each hero can only resolve 1 hook per campaign and can only be the helper once per campaign. A hero's first hook requires at least a level 3 relationship with a prospective helper, the second hook requires at least a level 4 relationship, and the third hook requires a level 5 relationship. A family member can never be the helper.
