History

The first time this was recorded was in 750 AE. There were several more instances of this throughout history with an incident in 1689 AR because of Scarlett Forge's involvement. This incident was the first time everyone infected died, but it also led to the study of the Spectral Gravebloom and its effects on Humans.
