Command: fix/protect-nicks

Fix nicknames being erased or not displayed

Due to a bug, units nicknames are not displayed everywhere and are occasionally lost.

fix/protect-nicks will save the nicknames of the units once an in-game day. It works by setting the same nickname to the unit’s corresponding “historical figure”, which was the behavior on pre-Steam releases.

After running it, the nicknames are properly displayed in locations such as legends or image descriptions. Additionally, they are no longer lost after killing a forgotten beast or retiring a fort.
