And that still doesn't cover the case when the player would prefer that it is one of the followers who gets away lightly, not the leader. The suggestion that followers may take a different type of damage is a good one, and can get itself added to the "narrator notes" section, but I can think of plenty of circumstances where the leader will be trying to protect the weaker followers, not use them as ablative armour. Every now and then, the word "hero" might be appropriate in the normal English meaning as well as being used as a substitute for "PC".
