And then even after that tragic day, Happy was put to the test again by Howard quartz to prove humans that he is indeed destructible, but he was saved at the last minutes by Colonel Lash in order to join Hammerstein squad (9 pages).
Tubal-cain is a biblical character, the first metal-smith, "forger of all instruments of bronze and iron".
