Origin

Kept in a air tight glass case holds a non-ageing fern that was originally owned by the 19th century naturalist Alexander von Humboldt. Much of his studies in the Americas revolved around studying the effects geography had on the distribution of different species. He was one of the first to suggest South America and Africa were once joined together prior to the Atlantic Ocean, and that industry began producing climate changes in the 1800s. Science to Humboldt required observation, measurement and belief each field of study was connected in unity.

Effects

Imbued with Alexander's hatred of pollution and the destruction of nature, this Fern has the power to revert or change the landscape of anything it touches. Often destroying man made structures.
