For Benjamin Slightman Sr., see Ben Slightman the Elder
Ben Slightman the Younger was the friend of Jake Chambers in Calla Bryn Sturgis. He had a twin who died as a child, making him eligible for kidnap by the Wolves. He was older than Jake, but younger in experience.
He and Jake became fast friends. Jake spent many of his days in the Calla with Benny, having the childhood that he had never really had before. They would jump into bales of hay together or camp outside.
He died during the battle with the Wolves. He was caught in the trenches with the other fighters, a place he was never meant to be in. He was only there because he had to help Jake and Francine Tavery bring Francine's twin, Frank back safely.
