0010171: In addition to being naked, wandering bards/dancers/poets/etc do not display their professions.
In addition to being naked the travelling bards and such staying at sites in adventure mode show up as being of other professions, such as farmer. In addition when asked what their profession is they tend to answer in the past tense "I was a bard" rather than "I am a bard".

Isn't "profession" still linked to "highest skill"? Master farmers are still farmers even if they've given it up and started bad poetry recitals.

They're probably naked because they're a different size than the civ they're in. Goblin/Dwarf/Elf performers in Human civ, or vice versa.

Being naked seems to be something to do with performance troupes not belonging to any particular civ, so they get no clothes. Possibly. Doesn't happen 100% of the time though so tricky to track down. Thought it was already reported, but can't seem to find the report now.

It might be related that in fortress mode some don't display their reason for visiting either "This visitor has come to (space)." They don't seem to know it themselves, idly wandering the fortress, not visiting my locations more than by chance. I'm not sure they came as part of a troupe but suspect it, since I had several of those at once, then none.
