Leonardo of Miragliano was the famed genius and pioneering Tilean inventor and engineer who founded the College of Engineers, serving as its Chief Engineer. [2a]

History

He was an apprentice to the architect serving the Prince of Miragliano, Cosimo - inspecting the progress of the city rebuilding, Cosimo noticed the budding genius and put him in charge of the whole project. Years passed and the work was finally completed, with Leonardo designing whole new ingenious set of ramparts as part of the new defences. [2a]

His fame quickly spread and other princes of Tilea sought his aid as well as mercenary generals who often consult him with regard to field fortifications and siege works. [2a]

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]

Inventions

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. [2a]
