The Gnome Artificer and Airship aficionado
Short, as gnomes tend to be, but particularly short even for a gnome and a touch on the ‘too thin’ side at that. He tends to wear waistcoats rather often, and likes baggy pants with many, many pockets and boots that are a bit too big for his feet. Atop his head is short cropped, slightly ruffled sandy-colored hair and he has big green eyes and a tiny bit of scruff that is the vague suggestion of the typical gnome goatee in the making (but not there, yet). His arms and legs are a little too long for his torso, his head a little too big for his shoulders, and his smile far too big for his face. His left leg is in a brace of sorts, the result of a childhood accident, and this rather basic brace has its share of cogs and gears to make it work better (or so he says, many think they’re just cosmetic) and upon his forehead like a demon’s horns is a pair of goggles, decked out with adjusters and filters and such, the right eye being telescopic while the left is a plain lens with the aforementioned filters.
Name: Todd Thistledown-WillowWinter LockStockBarrel HatchetHandle Fliptrick IceGrinder Mousebreeder The Firetouched XIV… or Todd. Just Todd.
-Chief mechanic for any technical business like an airship, healer, repairman, tinkerer, cute mascot, magical enchanter/inventor/dealing with stuffer.
Previous Adventuring experience: I’m a gnome. Life IS an adventure! By which I mean, I have nothing that any tall person would call experience, but have spent my whole life travelling and observing and generally making a nuisance of myself.
Marital Status: Single. So very, very single.
Enemies/Vendettas: The family Firetouched is the mortal enemy of the Whistlerum family. Something about stolen inventions and kidnapping and arson and jaywalking and really nobody is quite sure of the story anymore but the one thing we Firetouched are sure of is that the Whistlerums are FILTHY LYING LIARS WHO LIE A LOT ABOUT THINGS THAT ARE LIES.
Family: Very big. Very hard to name them all.
Illnesses: Fit as a fiddle, save for his mildly lame leg which has a mechanical brace.
Phobias: Snakes. Todd HATES snakes. WHY IS IT ALWAYS SNAKES?!
Items of sentimental value: A wrench, passed down through the Thistledown line for generations. It’s non-magical, not special, just a wrench. Still, I love it like nothing else in the world.
