When you hire a new brother, he will randomly have a series of stars next to some of his Attributes:
1 Star Talent
2 Star Talent
3 Star Talent

These denote the brother's talents. Talents allow a character to progress better than others in a certain stat. These talents are completely randomly assigned, without any connection to a background or trait.

A talent increases the additional attribute points available upon level-up. 1 star increases the minimum by 1, 2 stars by 2 and 3 stars also increase the maximum by one.[1]

Willsama974 wrote a nice table that shows this very well:

Regular One Star Two Stars Three Stars
HP 2-4 3-4 4 4-5
Max. Fatigue 2-4 3-4 4 4-5
Resolve 2-4 3-4 4 4-5
Initiative 3-5 4-5 5 5-6
Melee Skill 1-3 2-3 3 3-4
Melee Defense 1-3 2-3 3 3-4
Ranged Skill 2-4 3-4 4 4-5
Ranged Defense 1-3 2-3 3 3-4
