0011019: When i try to unretire my adventurer instead it makes me play as a random historical figure.
So i have an adventurer in this advanced world gen 2025 year old large world (it took a awhile to do the history generation), with a very long name, hes a human, and i became a lord of a hamlet with him (His name is Lastret Malathran Aronosam Zicab), but when i try to unretire him, instead it makes me play as a random hist fig elf "Vafice Fedcobras", she has kids and everything its very weird (adventurers arent supposed to have kids either since they are asexual). And now shes available to unretire aswell even though she isn't my adventurer after this bug happened aswell. But yet when i try to unretire my actual character it still makes me play as this random elf.
Try to unretire Lastret, you end up playing as Vafice.
Heres the Save:

Here's a save from 47.02 which demonstrates a whole party of random historical figures (modded game with extra civs and such, but no deep hacking involved). What were once a happy trio of human, grizzly bear man and sexless night-creature are now a trio of naked minotaur children.

Just unretire all three of the adventurers listed in Specific People to see the bug at work. (Or just one or two of them).

(Large world so big file, but it seems that these bugs don't often occur in small worlds, so can't be helped).

These are all historical figures who existed before and can be found in Legends before any unretiring takes place. (3 kidnapped children).

Looks like the unretire crash fix got this one too. At least, it did when I tested it!
