Legend of the Crystals
white bearded old man inventor
Ormeld is in his late 70s and walks with the help of a cane. He is an inventor and tinker, always trying to discover new things.
He works with steam engines, and his lifelong dream was to create a machine that could transport people quickly across vast distances without requiring wizards. He wanted to be able to move goods from mines to refiners faster, trade between nations, and to unite the world in peace. Although he may have had the best chance of completing such a device with the help of the empire’s vast resources, he believed the empire would only use such an invention to further oppress the people, and instead threw in his support with Sebastian. When Sebastian joined the liberation army, however, he cut off ties, not wanting his inventions used for warfare.
