Cacame’s origin can be traced back to a 50+ page thread in the Bay12 Forums. [1] Bay12 Forums, primarily based around Dwarf Fortress but also covered a few other games, is a central hub of the Dwarf Fortress fandom. The user who posted Cacame’s story was called Holy Mittens. [2]


Cacame Awemedinade, also known as Cacame Apebalded the Immortal Onslaught, is a character within Dwarf Fortress. He is legendary among the Dwarf Fortress fandom due to his epic generated backstory, despite their typical disdain for elves. (To be called an Elvish player is an insult on the Bay 12 Forums)

The Story of Cacame

Cacame’s character was born an Elven civilization at war with the Dwarfs. When he was 7 years old, the Elves were defeated, and a Dwarfen governor installed in his city. 5 years later, at the age of 12, Cacame became a guard. [1]
Two years later, an Elven attack on the city resulted in Cacame’s wife, Nemo, being killed and eaten by an Elf warrior. Later, his king died in battle. Through processes not quite understood, Cacame became an Elf king of Dwarfs.
At some point in his life, Cacame kills a dragon with a simple hammer. [3]


Cacame, as previously stated, is a legendary figure among Dwarf Fortress players. He has spawned numerous lengthy threads and inspired the creation of a large assortment of fan art, fanfiction, mods and commemorative in-game megaprojects.

Tributes to Cacame

The Collosus of Cacame

Holy Mittens latter built a gigantic statue, called the Collosus of Cacame, to commemorate the character. [4] The statue featured a solid gold cape and eyes glowing with the elf-hating fury of the Dwarf King. The monument was constructed so that anyone entering the fort would have to walk in between Cacame’s legs as a form of psychological warfare.[4]
