Liege Lord Hastello is a master inventor who created many machinery and weapons for the rebellion, or so many thought. He imprisoned his faithful goblin servant, Ticker, in an underground chamber. Ticker had to invent his way out and swore revenge on his Master. He failed to do so as Lord Hastello was killed in battle before he got out. Ticker was the real mastermind behind Hastello's great machines and continued to make weapons for the empire, they pay better.
