The Goldsmith was once an Hour of the Second Fansus. Its aspects were Forge, Lantern, and Grail. It was an Hour of craftsmen, forgers, alchemists, and misers.
After the Goldsmith descended it set up its forges and its vaults as close as it could to the Glory. Unable to ear the fierce light and seeking to capture the Glory's brilliance, it caught the Glory's light in thin webs of gold, letting it coalesce into golden dewdrops. The light and the gold were both dumped into its crucible and adulterated until the Goldsmith could bear to hold it, to work with it. The material was then worked into baubles and locked away in the Goldsmith's vault.
Constantly searching for more raw materials, it came into conflict with the Bright Tapestry when it stole some of the Eigenlicht's creations. Things very quickly deteriorated into violence, the two Hours struggling against each other. Here the Goldsmith met its death when it fell into the Sea of Mists that surrounds the Mansus. The circumstances of its death spawned the Knife's Edge and the Storm-Tossed - the opalescent twin Hours of the Mists.
The Goldsmith commonly manifested as a bent and wizened smith, holding a hammer and clutching its creations to its chest. It was also known to appear as a mighty dragon, curled up on its beloved horde.
The Goldsmith was Forge, for alchemy and transformation. It was Lantern, for the Glory-light it worked it. And it was Grail, for its greedy desires. It was the Hour of greed and jealousy, of material wealth and possessive wrath.
Those that followed the Goldsmith were often rewarded with great riches. They attempted to ape their patron, using their wealth to build great alchemical laboratories to purify gold to Glory. They were bankers, merchants, alchemists, forgers, and conmen.
