The Gears (ギアーズ Giāzu) are self-operating machinery produced by Dr. Granz Florian, functioning as "Death Eclipse zones restoration equipment" (死蝕地帯の復旧機材 shishoku chitai no hukkyū kizai), i.e. for Eltria, in the Gears of Destiny continuity. They were the linchpin of Doctor's plans to save and restore his world to it's previous condition. Gears were supposed to be non sentient/non persons, but two of them were built accidentaly with completely overbuilt personality forming systems. Doctor decided to raise those two as his daughters.
