All Technocrats are members of the Conclavus Segreta, educated in a grueling regime of studies including mathematics, alchemy, ceramics, clockworks, civil engineering, and mechanics.
Upon completion, they are commissioned as officers of the military arm of the Technostratum known as the Ingenium Militorum, supporting the legions with technological weaponry.
The Technocrat can support from a forward position together with the skirmishers or from the rear with the war-machines, and he is equipped with a good many useful devices to aid his work in both capacities.
Technocrats wear coats of treated leathers sewn with ceramic plates to guard against acid and fire. On their heads they wear goggles and a filter mask to protect from poisonous gas weapons.
The mechanical knowledge of the Technocrat allows him to fine-tune the machinery around him to perform with more precision. They are also extremely experienced in calculating distances, trajectories, and velocities and can improve war-machine crews' accuracy; the Technocrat's hand signals even allow war-machines to bombard enemies they cannot see.
Before the battle, the Technocrat has his men mark out the chosen battlefield with painted stones which provide war-machine crews reference points for their shooting. During the battle he can also issue poisonous chemicals which melee units can coat their weapons with.
