OriginsEdit

Although many people are familiar with the Salem Witch Trials in Massachusetts, they may not be familiar with the much more numerous witch-hunts that occurred in Europe over the course of many hundreds of years. Though many of these countries don't bring the subject up much, Denmark is well known for (among other things) its unusual tradition during Midsummers, which started during the 1920s. On top of their bonfires for the evening, effigies of witches made from straw and cloth would be placed on top of the bonfires to represent the Dane's classic witch-hunts in the sixteenth and seventeenth century. While not technically Samhain in origin, the sector welcomes this artifact in with open arms (and tentacles).

EffectsEdit

This three-foot sized straw doll miraculously didn't burn on it's bonfire, and now releases the heat it was subject to onto whoever touches it - making contact with the doll, in other, laymen words, makes the person burst into flames.
