Nicat was the Masterminer during the Eighth Interval and Ninth Pass.


Unsure where he was born, but as the Craftmaster he was willing to change, and he didn't like the way Lord Fax took over Crom Hold, so Masterminer moves his operations to Smithcraft in Telgar Hold, leaving only local trained folks, to staff in those holds.

He moved back to Crom

He was at the meeting that F'lar called after the First Fall of Niinth Pass, and was happy to be busy in his work.

Discovery of AVAS

He was sad that there was much about mining in the files, but he did use the marks lelt at Karachi Camp, and Drake's Lake,

He was thinking on how to make new components, with Fandarel, he walked the Igen Caverns, looking for able folks, he had to keep on the ones that came to work on AIVAS, projects, to stay in a supervisor position.

Appearance and Personality

His face show the marks of working underground, the dank smell from working underground.
