The second of the Bauer siblings.
Temperence is the second of the Bauer siblings and the first son of the family. As such, even from a young age he was taught more about running the family farm, and is now in charge of it. Although he is a hard worker and generally makes good management decisions, he has had some problems managing the money. His recurring slips into gambling have taken a fair bit of the income in intermittent years, and he will often invest heavily in new ideas that strike his family without thinking through the consequences or likely outcome.
