Questionable grammar in monster detailed knowledge

1 of your ancestors remains been killed by this creature, and He is not ever known to have been defeated.

Should "remains" be "has" or "ancestors" be "ancestor's" with a "has" before "been"
Should "He" be "he"

and minor wording possibly on the creature I have for this detail

He doesn't take to strangers kindly.
Should this be
He doesn't take kindly to strangers.

However, it somewhat seems okay the way it is.

Re: Questionable grammar in monster detailed knowledge

I think they were trying to say "x of your ancestor's remains have/has been killed..."

The "have/has" was missing, and the word "remains" seems redundant.


A Goodge search for "take to strangers kindly" had about 1000 hits.  "Take kindly to strangers" had over 20,000 hits.  I guess both can be used but the later version seems preferable.  Changed.

Many thanks!
