USW: Early Modern Magick
Maksymilian was a wealthy clockworker from Russia, fleeing the Troubles with whatever he could carry. His skill at constructing delicate clockworks was wondrous; his manservant, Aleksy, was an incredibly lifelike clockwork man.
Like so many others, Maksymilian eventually died of the plague in 1611.
