A gnome who participated in a buyout of the manufactory he worked in, and managed to turn that into wealth through clever investment. Becomes a significant sponsor of Bucket in his campaign for Assembly, as the leader of a group of gnomes who are organised rather like the Workers' Cooperatives.

Bright blue eyes and untidy, receding hair; wears a worn work smock sometimes in public, as part of his lack of pretension. His office starts out with plain, functional furniture, and not very tidy, like a manufactory supervisor's office. His daughter Trim eventually manages to get him to go more upmarket.

During the time of gnomeservice, while not a collaborator, he kept his head down and tried not to make waves. He's somewhat ashamed of this.
