The Mechanic is an NPC that sells items such as wrenches, wire cutters, levers, etc. One can find a bound mechanic in the Dungeon after defeating Skeletron. Right clicking on the mechanic will unbind her, and after that point it will be possible for the new NPC to move into a house. This works the same for the Wizard and the Goblin Tinkerer. Although the Tavernkeep and the Angler are found as well, they are different scenarios.
Throws her wrench that acts as a boomerang when an enemy is nearby. It appears that her wrench can pass through enemies, thus useful against groups.

During Blood Moon
- It would appear that the Mechanic and the Goblin Tinkerer are fond of each other, the first characters to show affection in Terraria (excluding the Arms Dealer and Nurse as they generally flirt with all of the opposite sex NPCs).
- The Mechanic is one of four NPCs who don't give the "(NPC name) the (NPC type) has arrived" message. The other three are the Wizard, Guide, and Goblin Tinkerer, as the Guide spawns in a new world, but respawns with the message. Although the Mechanic, the Wizard, and the Goblin Tinkerer have to be unbound, they respawn with the message, like the guide.
- The name Ginger might come from the NPC hair color which is orange or "ginger"
- It looks like she's holding a Wrench on her back.
- The Clothier hints he imprisoned the Mechanic while he was under the Curse. ("I keep having vague memories of tying up a woman and throwing her in the dungeon")
- Now sells Actuator and different colored Wrenches.
- Can now be unbound while playing with autopause on. (bug fix)
