Do you know if the generals biography's pop -up when you hover over their portrait
in the info box? I always found that sort of interesting in their other games.

The short answer is no.

The longer answer is that WON supports leader bios, but the text hasn't been added to the setting file LocalStrings_NGC.csv.

You can add the bios to the file fairly easily. First locate the model file for the leader whose bio you wish to add. It is a text file so you can open it in your favorite text editor. Locate the line that starts with 'Text =' and it should read something like:
Text = $mdl_txt_FRA_Napoleon4

After making a good backup, open the LocalStrings_NGC.csv file in your favorite and add the name that you found in the model file after the $. The following is an example of adding a bio for Napoleon, I've shortened it for clarity.

// The template is
//Source ID;English;French;Spanish;German;Russian;Italian;
mdl_txt_FRA_Napoleon4;This is young Napoleon's bio§For use in earlier scenarios;;;;;;;;
mdl_txt_FRA_Napoleon4Old;This is old Napoleon's bio§For use in later scenarios;;;;;;;;

Then, locate the file Models.Cached in the Models folder and delete or rename. Don't worry, it'll get rebuilt when you load WON. If you don't rebuild it you'll probably see something like (..) when you move the cursor over the leaders picture.

Did I mention to make sure you have a good backup before you alter these files?
