Note: I put it here so we can cover the most media possible.

This thread is dedicated to characters who have a steamy flair despite being in a non steampunk world.

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Dick Dastardly from Wacky Racers. He would seem out of place if all of the other characters weren't a mish-mash.

I totally want to build the memory gun from Gravity Falls.

Several of the folks from Warehouses 12 & 13, and the obvious answer, the Doctor (in a roundabout way, seeing as he has tech far more advanced then ours).

I don't know if it counts, but I play a steampunk character in a Dresden files RPG. He's a changeling with amnesia, and his understanding of society is based entirely off of adaptations of Jane Austen novels and Victorian scientific romances.
In the likely event that this doesn't count, I'll redeem myself with a question. There was at one point a cartoon on the air in which a clone of Sherlock Holmes is created and sent out into a cyberpunk future to solve crimes. I remember there being a lot of cyberpunk/steampunk debate. Does anyone know to what I'm referring?

Halloway: Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century. Most of the episodes were on Youtube, at one point. And I'm thrilled that someone else has heard of it! I thought he had just been frozen rather than cloned, though. Of course, I don't think I've watched it in five or six years, at least.

Brilliant! I've only seen bits and pieces, so you're probably right. I may have to do a binge watch soon...  Wink

I strongly recommend it! In fact, that sounds like an excellent idea. Blast, and I meant to make an early night of it...

In contribution to the thread topic: Henry Jones, Sr. He always struck me as a steampunk trapped in a pulp-diesel world.

Oh, second! When I was a child I wished he was my father. Undoubtedly one of my favourite characters.

Edit: Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd century is everything I had dreamed it to be! Qui est in literis, you were quite right right. Moriarty was the clone, Holmes was revived through "cellular rejuvenation". And Watson is an Android XD

Adam Adamant, 19th Century hero adrift in 1960s London.  This is now old enough that the "modern" setting looks quaint.

I vaguely recall a 1960s ABC TV series sit-com concerning a modern family taking in a 'lost' relative whom had been frozen in ice for over a hundred years or so.

The premise-plot was around the trials of said relative adjusting to the world of modern miracles and magic he encountered daily.

 I remember the repeats. The 101  year old Man[ ? ]  The grandfather was frozen in  the Yukon gold rush  and  the same actor played the Grandfather and grandson.

 It was a favourite at the time.

The series lasted only one season (1967-1968), it was titled The Second Hundred Years and aired at 8:30 PM on Wednesday evenings, actor Monte Markham played both grandfather and grandson characters.

I thank my often consulted copy of Alex McNeil's 1982 book, Total Television:A Comprehensive Guide to Programming from 1948 to the Present, an essential for anyone obsessed with pop-culture trivia .
