The Shadow Rift
Originally purchased by a Mage to handle the repair and upkeep of his magical devices, the Warforged designated 422-Maintenance and his ‘brother’, 444 wer dragged into the latest conflict with the First after the death of their master. During this conflict 422 became adept at combining the principles of magic and technology to create animated constructs and other devices. Out of necessity, these inventions were martial in nature, but more and more 422 dreamed of using his skills to help create a home for the Warforged of the world, whom he felt lacked a proper place in the world.
After Meglan was defeated, 422 finally realized his dream, with the help of his brother Gate, the human Leona, and Crowbar, an ancient Warforged from a previous production run. Finally choosing a name for himself, Mainspring now works tirelessly to build and improve on Foundry, the fledgling Warforged nation. His overriding goal in life is to make it a legitimate and lasting nation- a place that all Warforged can call home.
