0007738: Prisoners can join adventuring party as adventurers
Children prisoners can join adventuring party as adventurers, making it absolutely impossible to re-introduce them to their family in the normal manner. In normal gameplay, a child would "leave your service" when re-introduced, but this bug makes it so that even after finding family members, they stay. There is also no way to get the conversation options back and have them re-join as rescued prisoners. Making them leave your service makes it so that you can't re-recruit them at all, essentially abandoning them wherever you are.

If they meet their family member, it results in "Aunt! Is that really you?" reactions.
Find a prisoner.
Say "Bypass greeting (new menu)"
Ask them to join you on your adventures
Now check the shift-Q screen - specifically the agreements section. The child will be marked as an adventurer. Then try to go let the child loose at a town where his parents are.
