Description: Marcus is a middle-aged balding gentleman with white hair and a mass of scars on his once kindly face. He has a mechanical arm (with flamethrower installed), a mechancical leg, and an intricate eye-replacement, all on his left side.
One of only two individuals known to have perfected a working method to implant functional artificial limbs on human beings, Marcus Perriwinkle is among the most unique talents among the Collegium membership. His work in human-steam augmentation has drawn the attention of parties from as far away as New York and even the opposite side of the Atlantic. Marcus is a walking example of his own skill, having artificial replacements for both his left arm and leg.
He now works for Smith & Robards in the field of new science prosthetic surgery in Salt Lake City. His clinic is actually closer to a mechanic’s shop, filled with iron and iron working tools right alongside fine surgical instruments. Thanks to an 18-year war as well as the onrush of heavy—and unreliable—industry, there’s usually quite a waiting list for his services. Patients should expect a wait of weeks or maybe even months in the City o’ Gloom before getting to see him.Unlike Dr. Gash, he will not remove perfectly good limbs or other body parts to install augmentations, however, his work is far more likely to be what the patient wanted. Because of that, as well as the staggering number of patients, there is always a long list of people seeking his services in this field.
