"Flint", as his friends and associates know him, is currently on his scheduled sabbatical following a six-month internship with Novobitupur's Firearms in Shieldmeet. During a long period of guild-sponsored training in his homeland, Flint showed a particular aptitude in the art of "weapons engineering", which is a gnomish term for explosions, from small (guns) to huge (satchel charges). In his time in Shieldmeet, Flint has helped push the gunpowder-laced envelope, regularly contributing to new firearms designs.

Flint is outgoing and friendly, even for a gnome, and his jovial manner has brought in additional business at Novobitupur's. He understands that many of the less technologically advanced cultures are confused by or even scared of things like guns, the warforged, or automatic bread-butterers. In light of this, he sees himself as an ambassador of sorts, his responsibility being to share this technology with others, to alleviate those fears and get the taller folk to accept the renaissance that's sure to come.

Flint is one of the rare gnomes of the world able to use psionics, or "thought-casting" as the gnomes sometimes call it. He is however usually reticent to discuss his burgeoning ability. His youth was punctuated by one inadvertent manifestation after another, usually in times of stress or illness. While potent, Flint typically has trouble controlling his ability to muddle the minds of his foes, often resulting in psychic backlash if he is not careful.

More recently Flint has been named by Aben as the day-to-day leader of the Cryptic Crafts Consortium. He has attracted a warforged cohort named Jilik who serves in equal parts as his bodyguard and tormentor, in exchange for maintenance/repair services.

Flint is currently in the process of designing a Dirigible.

Flint and his companions recently acquired a vessel that they liberated from pirates. Flint has formed a new crew from some of the defeated pirates as well as some borrowed help from Captain Elan'tah's crew. Flint has named the ship the Devil's Tailand is acting as Captain (though he doesn't know much about being a Captain yet. he's learning though).

Flint's given name is pronounced "Joe-KEYE-uss". "Flint" is also fine, though.
