A partner is the consort of the regent of a keep and a former hero. Appointing a regent as a hero will retire them from combat permanently, but will allow them to have children. The one exception is if the partner is of the same sex as the regent, which precludes continuing the bloodline.
There is one exception to the no-combat rule: Regents and partners will take part in defending a keep from the encroaching enemy. Obviously, if they fall in combat, the regent will no longer be available, due to having kicked the bucket.
