* DarkAndTroubledPast: Why the Alm Uncle originally secluded himself on the mountain is an ongoing mystery. [[spoiler: The original book hints that while serving in the army he nursed a close friend and officer who died under his care which left his heartbroken. Then ''Heidi's Children'' establishes that while also during his time as a soldier and presumably after his friends death, he fell in love with and married a wealthy young woman and proceeded to bankrupt his (now deceased) parents and himself trying to please her. The couple separated, taking a son each, and he returned to Dorfli. Despite gossip he settled fairly happily, but a few years later his beloved son and daughter-in-law both died, Dete took their daughter and the village turned on him and said he deserved everything as punishment for what he'd done to his parents.]]
