The City of Veil
The Clockwork are mechanical humanoids powered by arcane ash. They are sentient and existed prior to the arrival of the refugees, but they do not remember anything past their awakening by the Conservatory nearly a century ago.
They are strong and obey orders well. They have their own language which consists of whistles, rings, and sounds of steam, but cannot talk otherwise.
They are usually maintained by the Custodians who the Clockwork believe to be their re-creators. All Custodians have their own personal clockwork they utilize in their daily work.
Many of the elite own clockwork and use them liberally for labor, maintenance, and construction.
