OriginEdit

In the 1800s, many new business ventures were booming: locomotives, ice, kerosene. And bodies. Seriously.

Aspiring doctors and surgeons needed more than diagrams, they needed cadavers to practice on. Only criminals' bodies were allowed for dissection, creating a market. "Resurrectionists" would dig up the deceased (ironically, the fresher the better) through a hole in the coffin, leave all the possessions then sell in the dead of night to hospitals and lecture halls. Although many victims were minorities or the poor, most families upon hearing this horror took countermeasures. Some graves were covered with heavy stones, while others were caged off from the ground. Many cemeteries hired watchmen and even a few laid weapons to let the deceased sleep in peace.

EffectsEdit

As a protective entity, this firearm will patrol the surrounding area of any funerary or memorial structure. On sensing wanton disrespect like vandalism, the flint will fire and the person will be shot from the ground. Many hardened dirt and pebble projectiles will embed into their flesh until they stop being a nuisance.
