** Also from ''Deep Space Nine'', we have Jadzia Dax, a Trill woman who has a keen interest in Klingon culture. She is fluent in the Klingon language, handy with a Bat'leth, and can drink any Klingon under the table (with [[GargleBlaster bloodwine]], no less!). She can also clean house at Tongo (a Ferengi card game) and flawlessly imitate a Romulan.

** Also Shepard Book. A preacher who discusses ancient Chinese philosophers, and is also a good enough shot that he can unerringly hit his opponents in the kneecap in a tense firefight. It's more than hinted at that he's a RetiredBadass with a MysteriousPast.

* ''Literature/TheLongShips'': Both Orm and Toke are noted as being badass even by Viking standards, as well as quite accomplished poets. It is also mentioned in conjunction with the Yule feast in king Harald's hall that it is considered unbecoming for a warrior to not appreciate poetry, and Toke breaks down crying when he hears one of Styrbjörn's men recite a poem and realizes he will never be that good.
