It's a pity just how vastly underestimated his intelligence is. Ain't all about what's on paper, or the manner in which you speak (in his case, Speaking full-stop), it's how well you apply what you know to what you do. And Gods, does he do it well!! He displays a very raw and primal attunement with the deadly arts and despatching of the enemy, which, to me, proves he is much more than hulking muscles and a handsome face. Vilkas is a better talker than Farkas; that much is for damn sure. Mistake that for plain stupidity and you'll get his fist. This fortified ace strikes me as a no-nonsense kind of character, synonymous with the popular perception of the Nord caste. Of course the brothers are meant to possess opposing strengths and personality contrasts, but remember: Vilkas can kick ass as well as he can talk out of it, but wields his blade in a more refined and calculative manner. Likewise, Farkas is brutally strong and blunt, yet is capable of accounting for his surroundings and actions, albeit in a more short-sighted way. However none of these admirable traits measure up to how Gods damned gorgeous he is. They are. The both of them. Kyne and Arkay gifted us twice the pleasure.
I love the expression you've given him, it takes my mind on a journey through so many indecent feels.
I'm really starting to like Farkas after taking him into Labyrinthian (Protip: Morokei is stupid easy in beast form xD GG Dragonborn Werewolf Priestess). After I got the Staff of Magnus and was stopped by Estormo "Oh ho ho, travelers, thanks for getting the Staff of Magnus for me, I'll be taking that." Apparently Farkas didn't like this prick threatening my life, so he charged in and stabbed the everlovin shit outta that Thalmor before I even cast one spell. =^w^= And with pictures of him like this floating around I might have to "chain him up" so to speak. DDDDD
