Mikanikos is a steward and the Forgelite Prime of Bastion, in charge of the Eternal Forge and the creation of all Centurion constructs. He's the second Forgelite Prime in existence[3][4] and is considered the wisest and smartest of all the stewards.[5] His tool is the hammer  [Phaestus, Genesis of Aeons], which belonged to the First Forgelite.[6]

Mikanikos had an apprentice named Famos, but she stole his tools and joined the Forsworn.[1]

I understand what the Forsworn do not.
Perfection is necessary for success! You must take care of your tools and resources.

At Ascension Coliseum

Been long time since last witnessed the Path.

Excited to watch!

At the Ember Court
Interesting. Interesting.
Court is most interesting.
Many new ideas. Many new people.
Lots to learn.
At the Citadel of Loyalty during the Venthyr Campaign chapter "The Crowned Prince"
Crown can only be purified here, its loyalty to Denathrius purged. Citadel once amazing place, but now Forsworn infest it... like so many others.
N [60] The New Path
Been working in Bastion for countless years. Have made countless improvements and innovations to protect Bastion and make everything run smoother! Alas, even the great Forgelite Prime can run out of ideas.
Korthia has been amazing! Meeting fellow craftspeople, collaborating together, working toward common goal. Constructed many incredible things, even healed gargoyles! Learned much, inspired to the brim.
I must keep collaborating! Hipokos is my new apprentice. With his experience in Maldraxxus and passion for the craft, he will create greatness... with my help of course.
Plus he is great listener. And I am great talker.
Keeper's Respite, Korthia

Not to worry! Finest builder, Forgelite Prime, is here to help.
