Mechanic on the Clementine
Andy, or “Grease” as Ryan sometimes calls him, is the small, mousey mechanic on the Clementine. He wears glasses as thick as his thumb, which make his eyes look humungous. More often than not, his face and hands are streaked with engine grease. Unlike Ryan and the Captain, Andy doesn’t say much. At least, not to people. He can however be heard talking to the ship, or its two gatling guns (whom he has named “Betsy” and “Mary Sue,” for some reason.) Some folk joke about his appearance and demeanor, but Andy has kept Clementine running through thick and thin. He’s even made a few modifications and improvements, including the extendable swivel mounts for the ships two gatling guns. Oh, excuse me: I mean Betsy and Mary Sue.
