Temper is a gearforged of artful design. His steel skin-plates sport an array of colors that fade one into the other, from a faint golden straw, to a rich metallic blue. Intricate designs are etched into the plates, and his eyes gleam a flickering sapphire through their enchanted lenses.
Temper’s true name is hidden away, and his origin is known to few. Once he was a bloodthirsty human warlord. He sought to steal the secrets of creating powerful weapons forged of both steel and magic from the vaults of Rava’s priesthood. His campaign was a dismal failure, but instead of being killed, the priests of Rava took him prisoner at the behest of the clockwork goddess. When Temper emerged from the ritual of soulforging, he was a changed being in all ways. Some whisper that he spoke to Rava herself during his soulforging, and that the goddess has set him upon a great task that will shake the foundations of Midgard.

Temper is a very interesting character. I like his backstory of being a bloodthirsty warlord and then being literally remade.
