So I recently got into Dwarf Fortress. I am only on my second fortresses (my first one died of dehydration as soon as winter came and all the water froze) and my poor dwarfs were recently attacked by a werpanther and I lost 6 dwarfs before the monster was killed. I figured that the dwarf that killed the beast died in the fight (there was blood everywhere) and started preparing an honorable burial for him (bejeweled coffin anyone?) but I found out that the one who did it survived the fight. I obviously can't put him in that coffin now. So what can I do to honor him?
P.S. He has absolutely no leadership skills. I think he is either a lumberjack or a hunter.
