Hic is occasionally used for a personal pronoun in the third
For starters the personal that i am aware of are: EGO, TU,
NOS, VOS. There are no personal pronouns for the third
person. There are in the reflexive but not personal pronouns.
Is the use of HIC as a personal pronoun as easy as this:
TRISTIS PATER SUM EGO
TRISTIS PATER EST HIC

Yeah, that's it. In the first sentence, though, 'ego' would not be placed at the end because it's only used when the speaker wants to emphasize "I am a sad father" that's just a matter of style though.
