My own solution is to give these characters non-adventuring class levels

sufficient to my own estimation of how many character levels they should

In terms fo realm savvy, many fewer levels of political classes will match

fighter or cleric levels of greater number.

I`d be inclined to make the Mhor a 2nd Aristocrat/5th Ranger, or a 3 A/ 4 R,
