Origin[edit | edit source]

The HMS Erebus (launched 1826) was one of two Arctic vessels which explored the Antarctic around Tanzania and the Arctic around Canada. It was originally not an Arctic vessel, but was adapted to be one in 1940. The ship met its fate sometime after 1845, during the expedition to explore the area of Canada and complete a crossing of the Northwest Passage, which had been charted but never made. It is unclear exactly what happened, but it is hypothesized that the ship got trapped in ice, forcing the crew to abandon the ship.

The crew died by a variety of means, from hypothermia to canabalism. Some reports from the local Native Americans said that they saw smoke rising from the ship at one point, indicating that some of the crew might have tried to survive on the ship instead of abandoned by the rest of the crew. The wreckage was discovered on September 2, 2014, identified as the Erebus on October 1, and the bell was recovered from the wreckage on November 6 of the same year.

Effects[edit | edit source]

The artifact has the ability to create heavy ice in the area surrounding where it activates, trapping everything in thick ice that makes travel extremely difficult.

Status[edit | edit source]

This artifact is currently MIA, last being activated in the area around Quebec in late November 2014. The artifact disappeared before Warehouse agents could collect it.
