It's his oldest brother who runs Jurald Keep.  Assuming things work
somewhat the way they did in actual Europe, younger sons had very little to
look forward to - which is part of why they often joined the military or
the priesthood.  Penric would have likely be considered too scrawny for the
mercenaries, and I guess he didn't feel a call to the priesthood, so...
backup heir is all he could really look forward to.
