Tinkerer & Metallurgist of the Court
The dry and isolationist Throne of Metal, famous for his numerous and varied creations, sits at home surrounded by his personal servants and tinkers endlessly. The clanking of metal and whirring of machinery surrounds his mansion, dubbed the 'Faxtory', manned by his magnum opus creations: robots. Strange beings of metal and magic, they toe the line between life and death, and are used as servants, guards, and companions within the Empire.
Lurifax - the only person capable of creating these 'robots' - spends his life locked within the Faxtory's recesses, swapping his focus between a number of elaborate robotics projects and occasionally taking commissions or requests from fellow Empiras. Despite the constant offers from the Vaervan Kingdom, Sendrean companies, and Passane, Lurifax refuses to sell his creations outside of the Empire - and refuses to relocate.
For all his standoffish muttering and irritable attitude towards guests, he does prefer it here.
Leave me alone leave me alone leave me alone leave me ALONE. Visitors better make it quick and better have a good reason to bother him instead of the receptionist bots. Isn't super haughty about his exclusive abilities, just wants to be alone to play around with them. Likes Emperors that don't poke him for more robots too often.
Horribly, deeply offended when people steal, break, or harm his robots. Doesn't think of them as his children, more like his friends.

Lurifax's Flame allows him to "sense" what metal wants to become and how to shape it into that form. Honed enough, it allows him to create sentient, advanced beings out of metal and organic parts, that which he calls robots. But he can make just about anything out of metal.
Lurifax is a mage with high potential, but relies mostly on his robots. He is also politically influential, being a member of the Candescent Court.
The Faxtory is a huge complex with multiple buildings and enormous scrap piles. He collects any and all scrap metal from the Holy Empire and uses it to craft... anything he wants. The robots are also connected to an extensive database of information, statistics, and references Lurifax has collected over the years.
