Frances Faraday III
“Come at me you fiend!”
—*Frances Faraday After Transformation*
Although a minor noble, Faraday still paid his dues during the Great War, serving in some of the most dangerous battles as a combat medic. During this time, Faraday seized opportunities to learn from master alchemists, temple surgeons, and dwarven artificers.
Once the war ended, Faraday joined the Dustmen and continued to cultivate his scientific interests while using the connections he gained during the war to obtain both personal and faction favor.
Personality and Traits
As a well-connected, well-informed minor noble, Faraday would not be described as outgoing. Although he seems to be able to turn on the charm when necessary, the key word is “necessary”, since he guards his personality and only appears to open up when on a task, or attempting to obtain information. Still, Faraday is an indispensable ally, and when he draws his trademark multi-chamber pistols, he is a terrifying foe.
