Bio:

The second born of twins, with a brother who stands to inherit all. Engaged, by the unyielding wishes of his family, to be married to a young noble lady who was horribly disfigured in an accident. Yorkshire joined the army ostensibly to establish himself but really to avoid marriage without turning it down outright. He found he had a greater calling for tactics and command than he had imagined.
