Took me long enough to get actual photos of this guy. I still haven't even sketched him.
Ymehcla is the fourth party member to Ka'a, Poniu, and Lopako.
From the alchemy town of Ghelm, Ymehcla was well on his way to being a top graduate of his class in the Alchemy Guild. Then The Blasts hit. Unlike the other towns, Ghelm was protected by the talismans they had been mocked for for so long. One day while Ymehcla was out gathering supplies he was attacked by Nyvita, a notorious grabber. When she caught him, she knocked him unconscious and dragged him back to her lair through the vast tunnel network she used. Once there she lopped off his arms and legs and tossed them onto her vast horde of limbs. She kicked Ymehcla aside with her foot and left to godo some more "hunting".
Fortunately, Ymehcla landed close enough to an arm that he was able to roll over to it and get it in his shoulder socket. Detesting the idea of using stolen body parts, Ymehcla managed to drag himself over to a pile of mechanical parts he spotted. He fashioned himself a new pair of legs and a new right arm. With the vast amount of supplies at his disposal, Ymehcla risked staying a little longer than he should have and built the theorhetical alchemy device his thesis was on. He was successful and used it as his new right shoulder. As soon as he was done he knew he had to escape.
He vaguely remembered being dragged along a dimly luminescent passageway, but couldn't remember which direction they had come from. He decided to chance it and run down the nearest tunnel. Something about these chambers caused mild disorientation. But being aligned with the element of earth, he wasn't terribly worried. Though, to be safe, he grabbed a drill bit he'd spotted and attached it to the hand interface of his new right arm and made a run for it. He soon became very lost. as the tunnels turned out to be labyrinthin in nature. He didn't know which way he was going and the disorienting effect of the tunnels wasn't helping. Ymehcla decided it was time to test his new right arm. He put the drill bit to the low ceiling and activated it by thought. It worked! Ymehcla drilled straight up and exited just outside the gate to Enec, the medical town.
