Ol' Gampher Gyrolock here! Alas, at the ripe old age of 211 years, I've outlived all my relatives and many of my descendants. Some of my students from back in the days when I taught engineering and classical mechanics are still around though. I can talk about them a bit.One of my prize pupils was one Kaylee Tunesprocket, who took her incredible inventioneering skills and combined it with her phenomenal musical talent. She was the talk of Gnomeregan for many years. The room always seemed brighter when Kaylee sang, often backed up by self-performing instruments of her own design. One day, not long before the fall of Gnomeregan, she claimed that she needed to "find the light", and left. I know she's still alive somewhere, but where I have no idea.Seamus Quicksprocket was one of my greatest pupils. His treatise on the effects of magical fields on various metals was a work of genius! Alas, the Kirin'Tor has sequestered all of Seamus' papers and hidden them away, proclaiming them too dangerous to become general knowledge. Seamus himself suffers a curious ailment. He is no longer able to write except in the most childish of verse. During the fall of Gnomeregan, Seamus Quicksprocket was somehow able to evacuate his entire extended family, and all of the employees of the Quicksprocket factory, with only one casualty, the factory's accountant, Haggle. Poor Haggle, severe gnomish leprosy. His once brilliant mathematical mind gone. Seamus? Still retired. Kirin'Tor won't let him un-retire. I still try to meet up with him for Thursday bridge. His grand-daughter is making quite the name for herself though, despite not... well... having made a name for herself. She hopes to rebuild the Quicksprocket factory once Gnomeregan is retaken. You should hear Seamus talk, he's so proud!
