She actually has two dreams - one is to start a family, and the other is to achieve immortality (which she has arguably realized by becoming a vampire).

During my analysis of new goals, I observed that Immortality didn't have a description for the Thoughts and Preferences page, so it looks like it's forgetting to suppress the prefix along with it.

I suspect that she also has the IMMORTALITY goal. It might be relevant that as a vampire she is immortal, as well. Should be easy to check.

She doesn't have the goal flagged as realized.

Interesting! I'd noticed the immortality goal in Legends, but hadn't realised the connection.

(I wonder if an immortality goal makes someone more likely to profane a structure? If so, I pity those who end up as still-aging werebeasts instead. I don't remember whether werebeasts/vampires can also become necromancers... hmm. It's amusing to imagine a necromancer occasionally turning into a werebeast and attacking other necromancers, but as both sides are night creatures maybe that wouldn't happen?

In any case, if an immortality-desire is a secret goal not revealed to others then it may make sense to not have it listed (including prefix) even if not immortal; even if were normally revealed, though, it seems reasonable to hide it if {realised, and that realisation a secret (as with the fake name--that raises a question of why there's a fake name in Dwarf Mode and not in Adventurer Mode, granted)}. --And though a desire for immortality directly relates to becoming a necromancer, it definitely seems as though becoming a vampire (even accidentally/unintentionally) should be sufficient as realisation.)

(These are such interesting worlds! *joy*)
