OriginEdit

Dutugamunu reigned as king of Sri Lanka from 161 to 137 BC. He fought and overthrew the prior ruler Elara. To ensure victory in battle, he first prepared by making his kingdom agriculturally stable and then brought the ten strongest men to serve under him. His campaigns frequently used war elephants; during the siege of Vijithapura, Elara’s troops managed to frighten Dutugamunu’s elephants with hot tar and iron. He devoutly practiced Buddhism and applied his power to build large construction projects across his empire, including the Ruwanwelisaya, a large stupa meant to house the relics of Buddha.

His soldiers would often use oil cakes or traditional sweets to ferment the growth of mold. It acted as a desiccant and antibacterial coating, allowing the wounded to recover quicker from infection.

EffectsEdit

The user will have their strength become equivalent to an elephant, enabling them to life heavy objects single handedly. They will also become more resistant to disease and infection. When exposed to anything hot, such as fire or boiling water, the body will react and momentarily strengthen and heal. Unfortunately, this results in the flesh burning up, cooling down and ossifying into ivory.
