Basic Information

Race: Human
Birthday & Age : 51st Day of Spring, 491 AV (21 years old)
Gender: Female

Languages


Common: Fluent
Ancient Tongue: Basic
Isur: Poor


Physical Description

Tock stands at 5‘7“ and weighs about 130 lbs. She has red hair that she keeps cropped short, so that it won't get caught in the gears, joints, and moving parts of the creations she Animates. For this same reason she also favors trousers and close-fitting clothes, which are often as not stained from her work since she rarely ever stops building. Commonly she'll be seen with grease stains, ink smears, and sawdust covering her. She's almost never seen without a tool belt and thick leather work gloves.

Always wanting to stand out from the crowd, she regularly dyes a strip of her hair on the right side, varying the color from time to time. For several years she tended to dye the strip green, but in Summer of 512 she developed a preference for purple.

Ever since she began making Automatons, Minerva is rarely seen without several by her side. Most commonly of all she is seen with Grippy, her reaching tool, in a leather holster on her right hip. She also almost always has Handy, her Animated wooden third hand, strapped either to her wrist or her belt.

She also has a new tattoo, located on her lower back, just above her reartramp stamp, of a fierce, black, running wolf.

Character Concept

Personality - Tock is a girl who is always knee deep in a project of some kind, often disappearing into her workshop for days if not weeks at a time. She's definitely not afraid to get her hands dirty, and will be found covered in oil and grease more often than not. Socially she is rude and awkward, having no social skills nor any care for etiquette or manners. She often ignores people entirely and doesn't bother answering their questions, until they get her talking about engineering or magic (her two favorite subjects), at which point she'll rant enthusiastically for hours. Above all else, she stands by her personal motto: “ANYTHING is possible!"

Ethics - Tock doesn't care one bit about the moral questions of right or wrong. She's a creator, and is endlessly running around with ideas in her head of what she wants to build next. Her creations are far more important to her than silly things like basic human rights, law, common courtesy, and so forth. She has no care for someone's personal space, ESPECIALLY if they are in the way of her latest creation getting finished, and is likely as not to completely ignore a person's protests or ramblings unless they rise to the point of distracting her from her work.

The one moral concern that is most likely to get a rise out of her is physical violence inflicted upon an innocent, most especially a parent hitting a child. However, if the person is capable of defending themselves, her concern vanishes and she considers the fight none of her business.

Likes - Magic, building things, a good set of tools, a quiet place to work, learning anything new, people who stay out of her way, and people who praise her creations.

Dislikes - Being told what to do, being told what NOT to do, people who talk too much, being told something 'can't' be done, schedules and deadlines, Disorganized Messes (HER messes are ALWAYS organized!), being asked "What are you doing?" (which may send her into a fit of anger or violence).

Character Strengths - Highly intelligent (a self-proclaimed genius), well-organized, creative, skilled, inventive, determined, focused, hard worker, never gives up on a project.

Character Weaknesses - Horrible 'people skills', limited combat experience, gets too focused on her work, forgetful (will miss appointments because she was too busy building something), overly demanding, eccentric, has anger control issues, megalomania, violent tendencies, psychosis, and delusions of grandeur.

Character History

Sometimes brilliance can skip a generation.

Tock's grandfather was a skilled craftsman and a brilliant man. She spent much of her younger years in his workshop, watching him create and learning everything she could. As a child she continuously played with the spare scraps her grandfather had leftover from his projects. While her creations were the crude work of a child, she insisted on making all her own toys, and insisted that they were REAL. She always swore that a little wooden horse could really run, or that her straw doll knight had fought off the monsters under her bed.

One day a wave of illness affected Tock and her family. Her grandfather died, and Tock herself spent three months feverish in bed. During that time, her mind was filled with dreams of building an entire city of her own creations, where her hand-built knights guarded the city streets, and clockwork animals did the jobs of horses and farm animals.

When she woke and found out her grandfather was dead, she was devastated. Her father was a useless drunk, and she knew she would never get the chance to build the things she saw in her head if she stayed with him, wasting her life away taking care of a man who couldn't take care of himself. So she took her grandfather's tools, packed her things, and left that life.

Since then she has sought education in every form of crafting and animation she can find. She has spent time apprenticed to blacksmiths, craftsmen, gadgeteers, and wizards. She learned as much of their trades as she could, and has never stopped seeking knowledge.

Employment


EXPERT Woodcarver (Salary 14 GM per day)


Employer: Jacques Belrose
A tall man, middle-aged, and quite handsome. He had a friendly yet stern air about him, and was clearly someone who had been used to dealing with people in a professional setting for his whole life.

Eavin: Tock's direct supervisor
A gruff man, frequently drunk. Often seen scratching at the thick stubble on his chin. He smelled, he was sweaty, and he looked like he'd been wearing the same clothes for a month.

Jacob: Lead Architect
Main designer of building blueprints. One of Tock's occasional teachers.

Phillip: Lead Woodcarver
Tock's on the job teacher, a skilled woodcarver who oversees her work. (As of 50th Summer, 512 AV, Philip no longer works for the crew)

Bram: Locksmith
An older gentleman, steeped in wisdom. Offers Minerva guidance from time to time.

James: Tock's Coworker
A sandy-haired lad in his late teens. The boy had a cute dimple, and blue eyes. While he was a grown man, he had a baby face that gave him a slightly younger appearance.

Professors and Classmates


Gadgeteering: Professor Beadle. Short, pudgy man, bald, glasses. Rather stuttery and nervous, except when teaching his chosen subject, at which point he is quite brilliant. Prefers hands-on demonstrations over lecturing. Always heavily involved in his own side projects outside class.

Gadgeteering Classmates:
Jonas and Kyle, who are friends, irresponsible pains in the arse, and do NOT take the subject seriously. They don't seem to understand the amount of time, discipline, and care that it took to make something that actually worked.

Marcus. Novice Gadgeteer with a focus on large-scale engineering, such as building windmills, aqueducts, and other complex machines. Clashes with Minerva's style on two major points: One, that she focuses on smaller constructs that he considers 'toys and trinkets', and Two, that he considers her designs foolish, wasteful, and having no practical purpose.

Magecraft: Professor Anasella. Tall, dark skinned woman, with a classical ebony beauty. Views Magecraft as an art form. Very poised and strict because magic like this is serious business. Does NOT stand for tomfoolery in her classroom! She is very passionate about art and sculpture.

Magecraft Classmates:

Animation: Professor Claudia. Tall, pale, skinny woman with brown hair, usually pulled back in a bun. Strict, formal teacher that insists on a certain amount of traditional lecture and teaching before the actual hands on work starts. Tough, but fair. Intellectual and philosophical. Believes that the souls for the animation need to be sculpted just right, which is a very philosophical pursuit. Not something you can approach purely as "a + b = c", since you need to delve into concepts like how to impart morals and ideals to avoid things like the "Failed Supervisor Prototype" example on the Animation page (which got the idea to kill the whole population).

Animation Classmates:

"Oy! 'Em's my babies, 'ey is! 'At's right, come ta Mommy!"


(Listed in Chronological Order of Creation)

Bitey
Secret :
A Spider Golem. Programmed with the mind of a Golden Orb Weaver spider. Has no more intelligence or personality than the instinctive reactions of a spider. Controls: Verbal and Visual; Bitey is programmed to be soothed and comforted by Minerva's presence and the sound of her voice. However, he does not respond to actual commands and cannot be directly controlled. He is instinctively drawn to her side, but will not actually come on command unless he chooses to. Directives: Not to bite Minerva, and loyalty to Minerva (within the limits that a spider's simple mind can grasp). Weight: 10 lbs. Construction: Wooden body with metal gears to aid movement. Metal joints in the legs. Leather ear drums. Glass eyes with reflective metal backings. Skill level: Novice in all building/Animation skills used. Additional Notes: Glass eyes were made with designs and techniques developed and performed by Montaine Redsun.


Animated Crutches
Secret :
An Automaton set of walking crutches. User is strapped in and their weight fully supported by the crutches, which walk on four wooden legs. Controls: Physical (responds to shifting of two spring-mounted metal discs on the supports) Directives: 1. Loyalty to Minerva 2. Safety of Minerva (Don't let me fall!) 3. Inflict no harm (Don't step on anyone's toes!) 4. Cause no damage or disruptions (Don't bump into anything or knock anything over!) Weight: 20 lbs. Construction: Wood with metal joints, leather straps to hold user in. Skill level: Novice in all building/Animation skills used. Additional Notes: Legs are not part of the actual Animation, and are merely "held" in place by the joints. Can be removed in the future to adapt the Automaton to another purpose.


Naily
Secret :
An Animated hammer on wheels, with the mind and personality of an energetic puppy. Controls: Verbal and Nonverbal commands (has 'eyes' and 'ears'). Cannot understand actual language, but can respond to basic commands as a dog would. Example commands include "Nail", "Pull", "Smash Toes", as well as basic things like "Come" and "Stay". Directives: Loyalty to and love for Minerva, and obedience to her commands. Weight: 10 lbs. Construction: Normal metal hammerhead, wooden handle, wooden axle and wheels, leather 'eardrums' and glass 'eyes. Skill level: Novice in all building/Animation skills used. Additional Notes: Enjoys playing 'fetch' by pulling out nails with the hammer claw.

Choppy
Secret :
An Animated axe on legs. Controls: Verbal and Nonverbal commands (has 'eyes' and 'ears'). Cannot understand actual language, but can respond to basic commands as an animal would. Example commands include "Chop", "Stop", and "Stay". Directives: Loyalty to and love for Minerva, and obedience to her commands. Weight: 20 lbs. Construction: Normal metal axehead, wooden handle, iron legs. Claw-like iron feet that can 'grip' for better leverage. Springs in axle to add extra force to the axe's swing. Leather 'eardrums' and glass 'eyes'. Skill level: Novice in all building/Animation skills used.

Cutty
Secret :
An Animated saw on legs. Controls: Verbal and Nonverbal commands (has 'eyes' and 'ears'). Cannot understand actual language, but can respond to basic commands as an animal would. Example commands include "Cut", "Stop", and "Stay". Directives: Loyalty to and love for Minerva, and obedience to her commands. Weight: 30 lbs. Construction: Normal metal saw blade, wooden handles on head end, four iron legs. Claw-like iron feet that can 'grip' for better leverage. Legs pull back and forth in alternating motions to work the saw blade across a surface. Leather 'eardrums' and glass 'eyes'. Skill level: Novice in all building/Animation skills used. Additional Notes: (Cutty is suffering from sporadic malfunctions from his creation date of 74th Spring until repairs/repgrogramming are done. He will only obey commands part of the time.)


Boxy
Secret :
An Animated silver puzzle box. Covered in screws, clasps, and latches that are difficult to open without extreme effort (it took Minerva a full day's work to solve the puzzle, and she cheated. Someone unfamiliar with Animation and Gadgeteering principles could take days or longer to figure out how to open him). Understands basic language, and can respond with limited intelligence via 'body language'. Has a stubborn attitude and will be very rude to anyone other than the person he is currently 'imprinted' upon. Directives: When an object is placed inside Boxy, he automatically works to protect it. The object (which cannot be larger than a couple of inches) will be wrapped in razor-sharp wires to prevent its removal. Boxy will then close his lid, tighten the screws and clasps, and latch down as tight as possible. He can also repel hands and tools by flicking small levers and clasps at them, and he can move with limited mobility, pushing and rocking himself with his moveable parts. Boxy is Directed to imprint upon the person who placed the object inside. He will only willingly surrender the contents to that person, or someone they declare is allowed access. The owner can give him authentication commands such as code words that will allow a person to identify themselves to Boxy. Boxy is currently imprinted on Minerva, and will only allow her and those she permits to access his contents. Weight: 5 lbs. Construction: Silver, with metal screws, hinges, and clasps, and razor sharp wires inside. Skill Level: Competent Animation and Gadgeteering was used in his creation. Additional Notes: Boxy was not created by Minerva, but rather was adopted after Anselm the Fortune Teller 'rescued' him from a group of thugs, and brought him to Minerva for study. She studied and deduced Boxy's functions, and discovered his Directives through investigation, experimentation, and deductive reasoning. She ended up bonding with the box and decided to adopt him into her family. Secondary Notes: Minerva is also in possession of a crude 'copy' of Boxy. The copy is made of wood with silver plating, and has a Soulcore, but no programming or intelligence. The copy exists as a double to potentially fool a would-be thief and prevent Boxy from being kidnapped.


Animated Puppets
Secret :
Five simple puppets of identical physical construction (3 have been Animated, 2 are currently mundane). Each one has been painted in the general appearance of one of the Gods:
Syna (Goddess of the Sun) - automaton
Leth (God of the Moon) - automaton
Tanroa (Goddess of Time) - automaton
Kihala (Goddess of Life) - ordinary puppet
Dira (Goddess of Death) - Corrupted puppet (see note below)
Controls: Nonverbal only. Each puppet has a glass eye atop its head, and is programmed to see Tock's hand motions and move its body according to the gestures she makes. When not being specifically directed, they lay limp. Directives: Obedience and love for Minerva. Gentleness around children. Weight: 2 pounds each. Construction: Standard puppet design with wooden body parts and carved ball joints. The non-animated ones have strings. Skill level: Competent in all building/Animation skills used. Additional notes: There is no difference in the programming or capabilities of the three Animated puppets. They can only be distinguished by their painted appearances. Also, the complexity of their movements is based on the Puppeteering skills of the one controlling them (as with a mundane puppet, a more skilled Puppeteer can make their movements seem more fluid and realistic, but an amateur will only be able to perform limited movements).

Note: As of the 82nd Day of Summer, 512, the Dira puppet now contains an incomplete, corrupted copy of Mikey's memories. The programming has numerous flaws, since the child was dying and his soul fading as the programming was performed. No astral body was formed, so the puppet is incapable of movement.


Handy
Secret :
A wooden hand, modeled after Tock's own right hand. Controls: Verbal and nonverbal. Has a basic "child-like" understanding of language. Will respond to basic verbal commands or hand gestures (the latter of which he often mimics automatically). Can also anticipate Minerva's needs (within limitations based on his intelligence) and react to them without being commanded. For example, he will automatically strap himself to her wrist or another nearby object for balance. He will automatically grab things that are within his reach (sometimes grabbing things he shouldn't be touching, like a curious child). He will also do things like opening doors, turning the pages of a book, or other basic tasks without being told. Directives: Obedience to and love for Minerva. Weight: Under 5 pounds. Construction: Wooden hand with metal joints, glass eyes, leather ears, and a leather belt for a 'tail'. Skill Level: Competent in all building/Animation skills used. Additional Notes: Handy has been programed with most of Tock's most common hand gestures, including lewd ones, and in the basic use of tools and crafting tasks. He can perform most simple things a hand can do, within reason (for example, he can use a hammer, but lacks the precision for careful carving. He could beat on a drum, but not play a guitar or piano). Because of his higher intelligence and independence compared to Minerva's previous creations, he is able to decide his own actions, and often does so unless directly commanded otherwise.

Diggy
Secret :
An Animated shovel on wagon wheels. Controls: Verbal and Nonverbal. Has a basic "child-like" level of intelligence. Will respond to basic verbal commands and hand gestures, and has the intelligence to proceed about a given task under his own power with only general directions given. For example, Tock can tell him to dig a hole in certain dimensions and to a certain depth, and he will proceed without needing to be guided every step of the way. Directives: Obedience to and love for Minvera. Self-preservation: Will come and find 'Mommy' if he experiences any strain or resistance (for example, if he bangs into a rock while digging, he will lead Minerva to it so she can remove the obstruction). Weight: 50 pounds. Construction: Slightly taller than waist height, with wooden wheels, a wooden axle, and a shovel with an iron spade. Glass eyes and leather ears. Skill level: Competent in all building/Animation skills used. Additional notes: Has a basic understanding of depth, shapes, and distances. Is also programmed to leave ramps for himself when digging into a deep hole, so that he won't become trapped and unable to get out. His shovel is counter-balanced with a block of weight that allows him to easily carry or 'fling' anything in the spade, and he has a basic understanding of how to aim what he throws with limited precision.


Animated Clock
Secret :
A simple wooden clock, made while under duress. Controls: None (programmed with basic instictive movement only). Directives: Continuous motion (the clock never stops moving, powered by the magic). Weight: 5 pounds. Construction: Round wooden back, carved with numbers. Carved wooden gears. Wooden hands carved in the appearance of sticks with leaves for the arrows. Gears connect the hour and minute hands to ensure they move in sync at the proper rates. Skill level: Expert Carving, Competent Gadgeteering and Animation. Additional notes: Programmed with the soul of a sweet cicely plant. The motion of the clock hands is programmed based on the plant's "muscle-memory" of turning its leaves to stay in alignment with the sun. The rate of rotation on the hands is thus based on the rate of the sun's movement through the sky.


Eyes
Secret :
The Multi-Magnifying, Vision Enhancing Apparatus. Controls: Verbal and Nonverbal. Touches to certain points will command the arms to raise or lower, and will also respond to words. Has basic "child-like" understanding of language. Can also anticipate Minerva's needs (within limitations based on its intelligence) and react to them without being commanded. For example, if she holds something before her face, he will automatically lower the spectacles into place and move the magnifier into alignment. Directives: Obedience to Minerva. Weight: 7.5 pounds. Construction: A leather belt that wraps around the head (Animation allows it to buckle itself in place). A pair of spectacles to correct near-sightedness are mounted in a wooden frame in front. These can raise upwards to get out of the way, or lower into place when needed (will raise/lower based on either touch or verbal commands, or when Eyes anticipates Minerva needs to see something). Six small adjustable wooden arms are attached at the forehead and temples. Two hold the two lenses of an adjustable sighting lens, and can shift the position of it for focus and magnification. Two have wooden clips that can hold light-weight objects for hands-free study (such as keeping a page of notes in view during work). Two have holes on the end for insertion of additional tools (such as the handle of a magnifying lens). As with the spectacles, the arms can either be commanded to raise or lower, or will do so automatically by anticipating Minerva's needs. Skill level: Competent in all building/Animation skills used.


Automatons Made for Other People


(NOTE: The following creations are NOT part of Minerva's inventory. They are a listing of Automatons created for others that I am listing here just as a record of Minerva's creations. Each one notes who they were built for, and that is the person who has the Automaton in their inventory.)

M'lady
Secret :
An Animated Lockbox who is picky about manners. Created for and given to Valerius Nitrozian while Tock was staying in Ravok. Controls: Verbal and Nonverbal commands. Hand pressure in a certain way on the lid is required for opening. Is programmed only to open when someone says 'Please,' and will close again in three seconds if they do not also say 'Thank You.' Cannot understand actual language, but can respond to the words the way an animal obeys commands. The 'appearance' of politeness is merely a programmed trait. Directives: Loyalty, first to her, second to Valerius Nitrozian. Authenticaion via touching the lid in a certain manner. Weight: 10 lbs. Construction: Wooden box with angled lid to serve as a writing desk, includes inkwell holder. Inside are metal gears and strips to act as a locking mechanism with no key (locks and unlocks based on proper verbal and nonverbal commands). Leather eardrums, glass eyes. Skill level: Novice in all building/Animation skills used.


Crusher and Snapper
Secret :
A pair of twin Animated Scarves. Made for Rayage. Controls: Verbal and Nonverbal commands (via glass eyes and leather ears). Both have a rudimentary understanding of language and can comprehend commands with child-like intelligence. Directives: Loyalty and Obedience, first to Minerva (as their 'Mother'), second to Rayage (as their 'Adopted Father'). Authentication: Obedience will also be granted to anyone who says the codewords, 'Mykras Ka,' for Snapper and, 'Kryshant Mu,' for Crusher. Weight: 5 lbs. Construction: Iron Silk (an Alchemical substance devised by Rayage: Material: Ironsilk; made by Rayage at Expert Alchemy; half-life 9 years from creation time of 15th Summer 512 AV; Properties: flexibility and smoothness of silk but with the material strength and limited malleability of iron) for the main bodies. Wooden heads with glass eyes and leather ears. Snapper also has a pair of retractable metal fangs. Skill Level: Competent in all building/Animation skills used. Additional notes: Crusher is designed like a constrictor snake, but can also perform more complex actions with his body such as using his tail to climb or retrieve objects. He is programmed with greater understanding of commonplace things, and less of upper class/uncommon things. Snapper is designed like an asp, with retractable fangs and the ability to strike and stab with them, as well as being able to perform the same actions Crusher can. Snapper is programmed with slightly lesser understanding of commonplace things, in order to give him better understanding of upper class/uncommon things (such as distinguishing items of wealth).
