Hom Bluebuckle is a wealthy citizen of Starfall, a member of Technic League, and seemingly a failed tryout for a role in Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels. He is apparently a subordinate to Cogitos Phario. The party met Hom while he was posing as an apprentice to Braboday.
Hom has been seen to command at least one squadron of gearsmen, and also employs Buffalo in his stately home.
His intentions and capabilities are largely unknown to the party, but he has been seen to cast the following spells or effects:
Invisibility (of some form)
Dimension Door (or some form of Still_ed teleportation or invisibility spell)
Hold Person (via technic phaser pistol)
