Character Name: Mahir Rrhamrare

Item name: (if you are applying for multiple items, it should be made into a list with the description, name and appearance together): Hephaestus Auto-darkening welding glasses.

Item function(s): I had two ideas for the function of the item; it's purely up to whatever is the easiest/most balanced and viable. #1, they function no different from normal welding goggles. Press the button on the top left to turn on and off. #2, automated activation, when a welding tool is activated inhand, the goggles turn on automatically, purely hands-off and require no interaction to function.

Item description: A pair of Hephaestus produced safety glasses with the prototype incorporation of liquid crystal lenses that polarize intense light present in arc-welding.

Why is your character bringing this item to work?: This character is an atmos tech, and has a job that requires a lot of welding, even compared to the station engineers. They are also lazy and a tool like this that doesn't require them to take off their safety glasses, replace them with goggles, then flick out their welding torch is probably the type of convenience they would definitely appreciate. Eye protection is pretty paramount, as well. Nothing like being both blind and a cripple.

How did your character obtain this item: As part of a prototype requisition program, Mahir threw in his name to receive some prototype welding glasses as part of a trial testing phase for the tool. Growing rather attached to the simplicity and the usefulness as a heavily experienced welder, they chose to never return them at the end of the trial phase and claimed they were lost in an industrial accident, of course. No one investigates those over some simple glasses.

What value does this item have to your character, and what story does it tell?: It displays the character's appreciation toward devices that just make his job easier. Having some neat goggles that he kept from his contractor for himself is just an allusion to this trait, albeit slightly comedic.

Sprites: Sprites are pending a commission

Additional Comments: I'm not completely sure if this fits along with guidelines, it's just something that popped in my head, figure it was interesting enough to go for. It's a pretty unique item, mostly just flavor for the character's field of work.
