I actually started crying when I drew this. I was pretty depressed for different reasons, and I believe that this symbolises the last farewell that a family makes when they let their child go. But this father is actually saying goodbye to his adopted daughter (I'll tell you the story in a sec) before he goes off to war. He is a raider with a few of his friends- they go and kill people in towns and plunder. Well, he killed a woman and she shoved the child into his arms without a second thought, so he has taken care of it ever since.
