Personality: Steadfast to a fault, this old work-horse will always lend a helping hoof to those in need. His craftsman's eye for detail has remained with him, even after his retirement. He can pick out a flaw in a gear from two feet away, and even figure out the complexities of griffon clockwork, given a few hours. However, that is the one thing pony inventors have always struggled with; how does griffon clockwork even function on such a small scale? This would drive Gear Ticker's entire livelihood, in attempt after attempt to remake the complexity.

He is always willing to trust someone; but he often has trouble telling his feelings, especially to his son, Klockwerk. Having a soft-spot for foals, he will oftentimes give up what he has to the families of foals in need. His roof is open to all those who need it, be they pony or dog. He is even willing to lend a hoof to the griffons, if they need it.

History: Gear Ticker was a watch-maker before the war, and was highly respected as a pillar in the community. Always inventing smaller and smaller mechanisms, and better watches, Gear Ticker made a name for himself in Manehatten, amassing a small fortune from wealthy clients. Leading life cautiously and slow, it wasn't until he met his wife, Gray Rose, that he began to take risks.

During a large fire in his neighborhood, he led the stallions of his community to combat the blaze, preventing it from enveloping the whole district.
Breathing in a large amount of smoke, he never fully recovered the use of his lungs. He also lost his wife in the blaze, and almost lost his son, Klockwerk, who was only three at the time. Raising the foal by himself, he gave Klockwerk a life and hobby in the shop; with Gear Ticker's help, Klockwerk discovered his mark at a young age; 8 years old the foal was.

Massive for a pony, his strength has faded due to disease and age; yet his mind is as sharp as any razor. Having befriended three young trouble making foals, he's taken the role of "a kindly grandfather" to them. Telling them stories of before the griffons, and before the oppression. Certain stories on particular; such as how The Elements of Harmony would save Equestria again and again; the two sisters who ruled day and night; and his personal favourite, the story of how he met one of the Elements, back when she was a filly. "The little one with the hat" he called her. He would remember that day for the rest of his life; the filly was honest, dependable, and kind to a fault.

"If anyone was going to embody the element of Honesty, it would have been her." He would always repeat. And he believed those words fully.
