Heroes of Clockwork – “Tocks”
“Tock” – Clearly a play on the ‘clock’ part of clockwork, this nickname can be irritating to the more literal-minded/analytical Tocks as clockwork does not necessarily imply an actual clock. On a related note, Tocks who overthink things and correct the slang of others are often known as “ticks”, which sounds somewhat like another clock reference but is said to actually be a comparison to blood-sucking insects. If one were to meet an actual native of Clockwork, a refugee from the Factories Endless might refer to him or herself as a Drudge, and a former resident of the Airship cities might be called an Olympian.
