OriginEdit

Henry D. Cogswell was a dentist and staunch advocate of the temperance movement. They rallied against the consumption of alcohol until Prohibition, when the movement died out. Cogswell’s belief was that access to cool and refreshing water would prevent people from drinking liquor. He erected many public fountains, although the public saw them as eyesores and usually destroyed them.

EffectsEdit

The water is health revitalizing, temporarily stopping the effects of alcohol. Also turns nearby spirits into water to prevent future intoxication. Due to this change without consent, those who drink the transformed alcohol will attract the spite of the people. They will hate the user for their interests or body of work, sometimes going as far as vandalism or besmirching their name.
