Carrion Crown: Kyle's
An eccentric inventor that the professor met and even acted as patron for some of his designs. He comes with an overly complicated invention that takes a rather simple affair (setting fire to some kindling) and turns it into a great ordeal. He has a gigantic barrel with pumps to pump out oil and then knobs and wheels to have this oil catch alight as it sprays into the fireplace. Horace calls this a “lighter” but still has a few kinks to work out (he explains as he quickly stamps out a rug that also happened to catch fire).
