Leonardo of Miragliano was the famed genius and pioneering Tilean inventor and engineer who founded the College of Engineers, serving as its Chief Engineer.

During his career he designed countless weapons and machines, most famously the ingenious Imperial Steam Tank. Leonardo's career as inventor ended suddenly when he was killed in an accident involving a heavier-than-air flying machine, its crash destroying part of the College itself when the alcohol-powered engine exploded. Many of the secrets of the Steam Tank's construction were lost along with its inventor.

History

In 2011 (Imperial Calendar) a new temple to Myrmidia was built in Wurtbad and Leonardo was commissioned to paint the fresco ceiling, this would his last work before entering service with the Emperor. [1a]
