The Dwarf Dezka-knik (lit. Mine Supervisor in Dwarvish) from Copperhead who took in a toddler found wandering near some burnt-out carts surrounded by extremely dead bodies, raised him (to 6' 6" [198cm]) and gave him his surname. The toddler grew to be a seriously strapping lad.

Dezka-knik is also translated as "king", and as a royal courtesy Mr. Ironfoundersson came personally to create the crown for the new queen, Magrat of Lancre. That's the same Mistress Garlick he once consulted on the spelling of his letter to the Patrician.
