Tetretz is a rogue modron banished from Mechanus. He broke from the rigid hierarchy imposed on all modrons. This was not by choice. He had become infected with a chaotic parasite. This parasite was mechanical and fused itself with the inner gears of Tetretz. It has yet been determined who created this complex and insidious parasite. The parasite was meant to replicate itself and infect other modrons. The parasite infected several hundred modrons before it was finally rooted out by Primus. He came to the secret base of Tetretz and his many duplicates and found that they were creating a massive device to speed up the process of creating more clockworks. The device had began making maugs, automations, warforged, clockworks, and modrons. Primus destroyed all of the rogue clockworks at the base and tried to destroy what appeared to be a machine with thousands of spinning gears. What he could not destroy, was cast out of Mechanus. In 1482, this enormous piece came to Bal-Kriav. Inside of the device was Tetretz and several other machines. On Bal-Kriav, the device landed in the Great Expanse, where it became known as the Gear Monument. After several years of trying, he gave up on the Gear Monument. He claims the device had become free-willed, ignoring any sort of advise or direction.
In 1531, Tetretz went to the lands of the Ink-Shad, taking up residence in Gaudrith. His goal was to find raw energy to create new types of machines. In the Shadow Rift, he had a Shade Farm, a place with high levels of shadow energy, the stuff he needs for giving "life" to his work; namely automations like Hammerer and Pulverizer constructs.
Tetretz lives in Gaudrith. On Bal-Kriav, perhaps even outside of Mechanus, he is the greatest authority on modrons, clockworks, maugs, automations, and the warforged.
Tetretz claims that his is no longer has any alien material in his body.
Tetretz gets most of his research funding from the Nînilzar.
