First Appearance: Blade: Vampire Hunter II#1/1 (December, 1999)
Powers/Abilities: He was a young inventor without legs. He used a small hovercraft to get around. Among the weapons he created for Blade and his allies were proximity bombs and presumably many other weapons that work well against vampires.
(Blade: Vampire Hunter II#5 (fb) - BTS) - Tinker gave a proximity bomb to Mikado.
(Blade: Vampire Hunter II#6 (fb) - BTS) - Tinker found out where Blade was buried and that vampires were after him. Together with Rank he went to the cemetery to help Blade.
(Blade: Vampire Hunter II#1/1) - Tinker rose from a grave and tossed a sword to Blade. While Blade took out some of the vampires Tinker was attacked by the fat vamp that dug up Blade. He was going to cut Tinker into pieces for his master Hrolf and even hit Tink's shoulder with his weapon (looked like a cleaver to me). Blade saved Tinker from further injury when he killed the vampire. Tinker told Blade that they had to leave immediately before he was pulled down into the grave again by his friend Rank.
(Blade III#2) - In a tunnel beneath a grave Tinker, Rank and Blade stood on opposite sides. Blade attacked Rank and Tinker had to explain to Blade that they were his friends. Tinker again told Blade that they had to leave quickly, but Blade went back to the surface to go after the vampires. Tinker and Rank followed him, but before they could find him Silvereye caught Blade with the help of their telepath Freak. Tinker shouted at Blade from a distance, but Blade was under Freak's control and left with Silvereye. Silvereye agents heard Tinker and took him away.
(Blade: Vampire Hunter II#5 - BTS) - Scribe mentioned poor Tinker.
(Blade: Vampire Hunter II#6 - BTS) - Rank told Mosha that Tink was taken away by Silverye.
