I've made a device for when 'Mr. Shaw' when he loses his tail (which tends to happen to Salamanders when they reach a certain age). This device is a Prosthetic Hand. It straps to his tail stub by a belt which sits on the end of the stub. As he's an Alchemist he's created a special chemical/potion which allows him to use the Prosthetic as if it was a tail but also at the same time function as another hand.
