|Examine text||An ancient spirit has made itself at home within this suit of armour.|
A Warrior ancestor is a dwarf that wasn't able to get to the afterlife because they weren't buried with burial armour. They come to the workshop as spirits inhabiting the armour on the walls. If you kill the armour they will pass on.
By killing the armour, players will gain the dwarves' respect. A message will appear "For laying this ancestor to rest, you gain some respect." You receive about 0.1% respect per ancestor killed.
If the armour isn't killed after a few minutes, it will perform a flourish, then crumble to pieces.
It is not recommended to spend time killing these, since you do not get sufficient respect percentages when killing them for the time taken, despite the fight being very quick. It is best to simply ignore them, and continue making armour or swords.
