** This, of course, leads to events where a dwarf will erect a statue of some guy you never heard of in the middle of your fortress. Until you check the legends, you'll never know about him. When you do, you'll probably find out that he was a [[Main/BadassNormal peasant]] [[SugarWiki/CrowningMomentOfAwesome who managed to singlehandedly defend a castle from a horde of cyclopes]] [[Main/ShoeSlap with his left boot.]]
