We are Osk Technologies. The best minds in all of Hydaelyn gathered together to push technology further, achieving that which hasn't been done before, reaching goals previously unreachable, making the impossible, possible.
The Technologies' goal is to create a neutral space where technology can be persued for technology's sake. True Neutrality is what is required, and here, we strive to reach that goal.
In order to reach that ideal of Neutrality, our own space must be created. Our current Headquarters in Shirogane is undergoing intense structural changes to become the first fully self sufficient flying forge and marketplace.
But until we get there, our separate departments of Manufacturing and Testing, Research and Navigation and Life Sciences are working together to push our understanding of the technology we already have, to create new forms of advancement down the line, not for the benefit of Wars and Army's, but for the people of Hydaelyn.
The staff is made up of many likeminded, and some not so likeminded individuals. Those who are interested in joining will have to become familiar with the Director and the Officers.
The Director of the company, a stern, enigmatic kind of woman, whom will stop at nothing to ensure the ideals of the company are carried out. Like to keep her personal life to herself, and keep most others at arms length, she is quite the mystery to those whom she employs, but is she herself truly neutral...?
Simply known as D.W. Smartshots, this enigmatic mammeteer seems to be an old friend of Alja's. They are polite, precise, and, despite their penchant for etiquette, cannot resist dancing to a catchy tune. They head the Manufacturing and Testing department and do not tolerate tardiness from their employees.
Rashmi Nhal is something of a contradiction: Collected and dutiful one moment and seemingly driven by will and whimsy the next, endlessly seeking 'amusement' though never quite explaining what 'amusement' means. New to her role as head of Research and Development at Osk though she may be, the woman's knowledge is nothing to scoff at, whether she's being actively questioned on matters or spouting some little factoid as an aside in pleasant conversation... though certain comments the Seeker makes might lead one to believe her expertise lies far beyond matters with which she's been tasked...
Garalund Vanlucht is a man of few words, and what words he does offer are often straight to the point, which truly sells his lack of social grace. However, it would be difficult to consider him a hostile person, due to his incredibly calm personality, and as head of security, he is completely harmless as far as staff should be concerned.
The Osk Technologies is currently recruiting for mechanics, engineers, healers and those with aetherical knowledge. From keeping the terrarium in good shape to helping to build one of the largest airships known in this era, the Technologies has a place for you.
Feel free to pop by our Headquarters on Balmung at:
18th Ward Subdivision,

Keepsakes in Crystal
By Ruhani Nhal
All 'Keepsakes in Crystal' are made from a light blue translucent crystal which exudes a faint blue 'glow' when in their active states. Figurines do not seemingly require aether to function (or if they do, the amount is miniscule) and are extremely durable. Each figurine measures no more than three ilms in height.
Carbuncle - Patting the Carbuncle Figurine upon its head will cause the creature to animate, perform two flips (one forward, one backward) in place, and then return to its default inert state. - 2,500 Gil, animates for roughly three seconds
Mandragora - Patting the Mandragora Figurine's leaves causes the creature to twirl about briefly, concluding its performance with a flourish of both arms before returning to its inert state. -2,500 Gil, 'animates' for roughly three seconds
Cat with Ribbon - Rubbing the Cat Figurine's back causes it to wake up from its default pose (curled up asleep) to prance and pounce around the surface it rests upon (as though playing with an invisible toy) before eventually returning to sleep. - 5,000 Gil, 'animates' for roughly five to seven seconds
Ruhani will accept commissions via appointment.
100,000g per kit.
Here at Make-a-Mammet, what we create are lifelong friendships! Your mammet will talk and move on its own from the start, but they will learn from their experiences with you! Included are one full outfit, refined speaker for crisp speech (pitch can be adjusted for free at any Make-a-Mammet), a lifetime warranty*, and one set of matching accessories for both mammet and friend! Mammets are also capable of using their stored aether (built over time) for healing, protection, and defense in a pinch.

Step 3. Attune your mammet’s heart! Exchanging your aether with the living energies inherent in a mammet’s core builds the foundation of the bond with your mammet. They will ever be in tune with your emotions and loyal only to you.
Step 4. Gift your mammets its heart! Place the heart within your mammet’s chest (don’t worry, it’ll be safe in there), bringing it to life!

We are not responsible for any damage that may come from modifying brought-from-home skins.
Mammet hearts may only be removed at an official Make-a-Mammet retailer. Attempting removal yourself or through a third party will void your warranty. Mammets learn and, with our patented process come to feel.

Mammets are not designed to expend their entire aetherial reserves at once. We are not responsible for any circumvention of this failsafe that may result in an inert mammet.
