Lucas Merriweather Buford

admin


Born on the 34th of Skia 1866, Lucas is the latest in a long line of scientists and engineers who continue the work of Dr. Andrea Moreau's humanoid automaton technology (see Victoria Bezel). His work has produced the well respected  Buford Automaton Company, perfecting automatons for mainly industrial and scientific use.

His prominent feature is a mechanical arm where his right arm once hung, which can be said to have necessitated his interest in mechanical engineering.

He is a pacifist, technological evangelist, and engineer. He treats his automatons as his children, and often brings them along as bodyguards and companions on long trips.
