Tinker Sprocket is a Greivar, a race of artificially intelligent beings. He is the first and current Speaker of the Frenzy, in Natopia. Prior to his appointment to that position by Chancellor Benjamin Meir, he was the Administrator of the copper mines of Coppertone, in the former Natopian colony of Natollonia. After that colony was lost, he was appointed as operations officer on board the Natopian International Space Station until he was appointed to the newly created position of Speaker of the Frenzy, to serve as an apolitical, neutral clerk and presiding officer to reduce the daily legislative duties of the Chancellor. In 1659, he was ennobled in Shireroth as Viscount Sprocket of Machinaria, admitted to the Landsraad, and subsequently elected its Prætor. During the 1660 Steward election, he resigned the prætorship, but was quickly reelected. In 1661, Emperor Nathan II elevated Sprocket to Count of Norrström. Shortly thereafter, following Kaiser Ayreon IV, Sprocket was elevated to Count of Machinaria.

Physical description

Tinker Sprocket is a unique Greivar, for he was entirely copper, eternally polished. He had a graceful human form, shorter than a man, and squat, to give off a jovial and safe feeling to nearby humans, who helped fashion him in their image to act as liaison. His hands were specially designed for human contact with a low-torque servo for hand shaking to prevent crushing the bones in humans.
