wasn't there a rule a while back for character interactions that said you can move forward after a week. I don't know if that works for NPC's but I would assume it does. Especially If the Person has not interacted with them in about 2 weeks.

Personality: He is pretty upbeat, but can be discouraged easily. He battles confidentally and with plenty of stragety. He can be a bit of a crybaby at times, but he pulls through.
