Arsenic is a classic poison that is commonly used in Kimaran nobility. It's most common to grind the arsenic to a fine powder and add it to food or drink. It's more common to poison food with it, as it leaves a distinct taste in drinks.   Arsenic does not leave the body or break down. All that happens is that if one survives, the body has built up resistance to the poison. It can however cause nasty lingering and permanent effects.
