The name 'Rea Thorn' originates from the 'common language' term 'rēpər'/Reaper, due to the inevitable and agonising death inflicted on victims from the poisonous thorns/spines. The contagion/poison concentration level, estimated at EL99%, records the compound concentration at 98% toxicity with a classification category of zero.
Toxicity levels are measured with five classification categories which scale the level of severity of lethality. The classes range from one to five, with five being the least lethal; however, on rare occasions, the classification category for toxicity is marked at 'zero', which refers to the zero-length of time that any person can be exposed to the toxin.
The poisonous thorns/spines toxicity is rumoured to be so powerful that a scratch doesn't need to pierce the skin to inflict the inevitable, magically uncurable agonising death. Therefore, 'Rea Thorn' was named Rea from Reaper, one of the mythical bringers of death colloquially known as 'The Grim Reaper'.
The 'Rea Thorn' is only indigenous to 'Aamon' and isn't considered a natural plant due to its demonic nature and rumoured beginnings. The Rea Thorn is a sought after rare component/ingredient by magical institutes, alchemists and toxicologists. The origins of the 'Rea Thorn' are shrouded in myth and legend.
One such legend is that the 'Rea Thorn' is formed from the horrific slaughter of tens of thousands of innocent people buried alive, and now their blood seeps from below, tainting the land. Another myth is that the demons Taribatum, Kimaris & Aamon fought for supremacy in the underworld and the demonic blood seeps from the underworld.
The Rea Thorn has unique properties which vehemently and violently react with healing magic and cannot be cured by magical means. An attempt to use healing through numerous magical means such as; a spell, potion, or other mediums will result in extraordinarily volatile and drastic results for the initial victim and potentially for the individual wielding the magical means used to avail the victim of the 'Rea Thorns' deadly grasp.
Rea Thorns are a rare commodity. Since 'Rea Thorns' can only be found in 'Aamon'. Due to the environment, myths, legends, and horror stories surrounding 'Aamon' and the plant's deadly nature, the understood use cases and uses of Rea Thorns are highly restricted. Therefore, Rea Thorns' volume is minimal, and the general demand is limited although sought after by select professionals. The exercise of collecting the plant is considered a suicidal mission.
Potential uses of Rea Thorns include:
