The Navvy is the Avatar responsible for the laying and maintenance of the railway
track. He’s been an Avatar for longer than anyone can remember. Possibly he’s the
longest standing Avatar on the Railway. Because he’s been around for so long, he’s
picked up a bit more knowledge than most Avatars, and he knows just about everyone.
If it has anything to do with the track, then he knows about it, and he seems to
have a sixth sense about any problems that the tracks might have.
If he’s not sorting out the track, then he’ll either be drinking or fighting – probably
both. He has one great enemy, the Road Builder, his counterpart in the transport
system of the Roads.
