Head of the Engineers of Gasworks
Current head of the Engineers, Cobalt Volt is an eccentric man with a fair number of muscle twinges and facial tics, most likely a result of repetitive electrocutions from his work. Prior to the Dome falling his innovations bordered on heresy, but were so brilliant and useful that that fact was often ignored. During the Nights of Spiders Cobalt was among the front line fighters, wielding a large electrical cannon that was nearly impossible to control, causing fires and explosions each time it was discharged. However, spiders were quite often caught within the blast radius, so Volt considered the weapon a success. Its duration proved short lived, however, as it eventually exploded while he was using it, rendering him badly burned. His recuperative period was long enough that he missed dying in the last Nights, and is thus one of the few warriors from the period to still survive, and survive without any cowardice attached to his name. Due to his probable nerve damage these days he has taken to wandering around Gasworks harshly critiquing the work of the Engineers, but in generally well liked. He is fiercely proud of his hat, which he claims remained on his head throughout all the fighting.
