Although Gimeubrand takes place on Earth, its history is VERY different from the Earth we know. The biggest difference is that the Roman Catholic Church was never founded, and as a result education was never halted, so technology swept forward quickly, and the steam engine was invented in 1590. The steam engine never went out of favour, and is still being used in the late 1850's.

The Original medic is later contacted by Elizabeth, who pays him 500,000 pounds of SomeAwesomeElementName to build another machine for Raymond and herself. Effectively, the three of them are immortal.
Unknown Date: Due to lack of either brother dying and any obvious bureaucratic solution, the mercenary fighting resumes. Grosvenor hires Elizabeth, and she secretly begins working for both companies. She then contracts the Original Medic to build a cloning machine, and the clone fighting begins.
