We are led to believe that he was very different from his father. Not cruel or brutal. But while thinking about him I came upon a conclusion which I don't think has been discussed on here. I'll pose the question to that I asked myself.
How much did Domeric know about his father and his "hobbies". I think he must have known about the flaying and his fathers enjoyment of cruelty. To me that raises his moral character into question. Was he truly a Black sheep or was he more like Roose than we are led to believe?
We know that he was fostered in the vale with the Redforts so he wasn't in the North for a while, but when he died he was much past the age for fostering and was likely home at the Dreadfort for a couple years. And being much older his father may have revealed this to him.
