“Uncle Babby”. Ruben’s grandfather’s uncle, and the oldest living member of the family. A master clockmaker and tinkerer, his interest in the relationships between just about everything have led some to call him brilliant while others call him mad. Something of a celebrity in his youth, during which he made dozens of devices and discoveries which have impacted a great many fields, he has spent the past twenty-five years developing esoteric machines he calls “difference engines”, the exact functions of which are understood by only a select few even within the family, but which excite those few a very great deal indeed. His latest project, which he calls an Analytical Engine, is even less understood but promises to be even more exciting.
