There are exceptions.

As allies and enemies ARE point based, they ARE confined by the currency of character points. This is largely WHY i disallow those.

When a Player is allowed to Take Ally/Enemy what they are essentially telling the GM is 'Make a Charachter and You play Too!'. Allies/Enemys are NOT NPCs in the normal sense, but are GM-PCs. You MUST stat them out, in totality, for them to have ANY real meaning or appropriate value. Otherwise, as noted above, a PC risks having a 50 point enemy with all 50 points in broadsword who will turn the Character into a PEZ dispenser on the first blow.
