OriginEdit

Cleopatra was the last female pharaoh of independent Egypt. She was romantically engaged with both Marc Antony and Caesar of Egypt before the eventual takeover of Egypt. Rather than become a puppet leader or a war trophy, she killed herself using a poison asp hidden within a basket of figs brought to her by a servant.

This artifact was mentioned on the SyFy website as an artifact collected under the reign of Warehouse 2 and in the novel "A Touch of Fever", where it is referred to as her "pet asp".

EffectsEdit

When it senses desperation and heartbreak nearby, the skin will become an actual snake. The snake will find the nearest person and bite him/her. One bite will cause death in less than a minute. After the person is bitten the snake will revert back to skin. To prevent bites the snake should be splashed with neutralizer.
