The legend is born! The mighty warrior is now known as a monster-slayer, a shield of humankind to protect against the terrors that lurk in the world's most fetid and frightening places. Witnesses who saw the terrifying dead beast dragged from the mine -- a chimerical monstrosity stitched together from parts of goats, cows, dogs, snakes, and bears -- fortunately didn't step too close to observe the deception. They will spread the tale far and wide, and one day children will sing nursery rhymes of the monster and the slayer.
The new hero tours the empire, receiving adulation, and bringing strength to all.
