The Mechanist worker is a Mechanist who has no combat skills, having instead devoted his time to learning and carrying out Mechanist research and construction techniques.
The Mechanist worker is extremely rare. The first Mechanist worker appears in Framed in the basement of Shoalsgate Station. Another can be found in Trail of Blood as an apparition who will not harm, or take notice in Garrett in any way. The only other Mechanist worker is Brother Cavador, who must be located and knocked out.
Mechanist workers, though they unarmed, still behave in a similar way to their weapon-wielding brethren. They will not attack, but will yell similar phrases if they become hostile. Workers will run for help, but not in the same cowardly manner as servants.
