Origin[edit | edit source]

Tipu Sultan was the Sultan of Mysore. Known as the Tiger of Mysore, he fought the British in four different wars before he was killed in action during the fourth war. When he heard that a son of a British general was killed by a tiger, he ordered the construction of an automaton. The automaton is capable of making the sound of a man's wailling and a tigers grunting. The automaton also has a small organ concealed inside.

Effects[edit | edit source]

The Automaton activates when the crank is spun. A Bengal tiger appears under the users command. The user can only command the tiger by playing the organ inside the automaton.
