Mechanical Arm

Edward Pearse was attacked with a blade containing a neural poison while defending the Kaiserin of Neualtenburg from radical elements, the event which started the Neualtenburg War. His life was saved but at the cost of his left arm. Later he was able to construct a replacement prosthetic using gears, levers and rods to enable movement. The Timelord Oolon Sputnik was able to provide a small core of Bernalium as a power source. Lady Primbroke has often commented that she finds the ticking of the arm rather soothing.
