Exploring Officer

A bit of a hold over from earlier times. What today would be a recon scout.

I misread this, but it did give me an idea: Exploding Officer. A high ranking mad scientist specializing i makng things go "Pop!" , with a loud "BANG!"

Indeed, so-called 'ordinary' jobs can be fantastic! One of our fellow London and Home Counties steampunks, who goes on these boards by the moniker 'Professor Oilcan', works at a steam museum and gets to drive a steam train, maintain some very large steam-powered water-pumping and industrial engines, and generally mess about with vaporised water to his heart's content!

So jealous!

A Sapper in her majesties Corps Of Royal Engineers. Sounds pretty steampunk, its not except for when we do explosive demolition and bridge building (this more in the sense of the heavy engineering).

Luminabiologist - researching bio illuminating plants and their incorporation into fabrics, vehicles, and households as replacement/compliments to reflective and safety illumination devices.

(sometimes you want people to see our airship at night - I'd make the plants that'd grow harmlessly on it until needed) Instead of broadcasting 'eat at Joe's' on the side, two drops of an enzyme and the whole thing would glow like a deep sea fish. A giant, silent, floating, flying monster in the sky.
You wouldn't have to shoot anyone -they'd run screaming.

Also would have to do the mad botanist thing.

I'd like to develop a herbal based bomb that didn't kill anyone, harm the environment or destroy valued historical landmarks; just made them feel bad long enough to reason with them. (Thanks Robin Williams)

I just noticed that nobody has proposed the Analytical Engineer (my current field of study) or his underlings the Gear-Spinner and Punch-Cutter, along with the individual who is particularly intuitively-talented in the field of Analytical Engineering and who is known colloquially as the Clacker.
