Pat Smith is on the verge of never having to work another day in her life.  She still will, because she likes taking cars apart, then putting them back together again so that they’re better than new — but the company that Pat founded (“CarMage”) is thriving, the waiting list to get a personal appointment with her is currently at one month and rising, and she’s even been the subject of a magazine article or two.  It’s deserved: Pat is an excellent auto mechanic who is also a skilled tech mage. She also knows her way around a machine shop generally, which doesn’t hurt.  Pat is only twenty-three; by the time she’s thirty, she’ll probably be well on her way to being a titan of industry. Already her arcane symbol ‘signature’ is well known among automotive enthusiasts.

 

Pat is, personally, a fairly nice person who forgets that other people don’t move quite at her mental pace; she’s always stopping and backtracking, usually with a quick apology.  She also works far too hard on her projects, even by the standards of true automotive buffs.  Give Pat an interesting challenge, and she’ll simply keep going on it. Forever.  While pacing herself for maximum efficiency.

 

And all of this is important because Merlin’s (a timeline where magic works, thanks to the Trinity Event of 1945) USA will absolutely tap Pat for her expertise if, say, a crashed Infinity parachronic conveyor shows up.  If there’s anybody in Merlin who can figure out how that conveyor works, it’s Pat. It’s not just her spell list, although the spells she knows would give any Homeline security chief nightmares; it’s the fact that even most tech mages only have a broad idea of how mundane workers put together machines and equipment.  Pat was an accomplished mechanic and machinist before she got mage training. Give her a schematic, and she could probably create a monkey-see, monkey-do copy parachronic converter out of the stuff in her private facility.

 

Not that she’d be working out of her own garage, if that happened. Merlin’s US government already knows that Homeline exists and routinely travels to other universes (obviously!): they would be quite prepared to throw a few hundred million dollars at Pat and see if that jarred anything loose. Honestly, it’d be a no-brainer, really.  And since that kind of funding includes a lot of security, well, all of this is one way to let your players discover that the Infinity Secret isn’t as quite as secret as they hitherto thought.
