Cypan Imperius owes its color to the oxygenated form of Hemocyanin, found in the blood of giant Scorpions in the Da Lonsan desert region. It gains its color from the oxygen in combination with the copper, and would be colorless without oxygen.
Geology & Geography
While found in many arthopods as well as crustacians, it is mostly harvested in Da Lonsan by the Turek people to use as dye in a variety of ways.
Origin & Source
Cypan Imperius is mainly found in arthropods and mixed with a secret ingredient to make use of it as a dye. The most common source for it is the Common Giant Scorpion found in Da Lonsan. The secret ingredient seems to neutralize both taste as well as odor.
Life & Expiration
On its own, the Hemocyanin dries and decays quickly due to its organic properties. However, in the secret mixture, it has near unlimited shelf life and can be used to dye a number of objects.
