OriginEdit

Notorious mountaineer John "Liver-Eating" Johnson was described as a large man, standing about six foot two inches in stocking feet and weighing in the area of 260 pounds with almost no body fat. Rumors, legends, and campfire tales abound about Johnson.

Perhaps chief among them is this one: In 1847, his wife, a member of the Flathead American Indian tribe, was killed by a young Crow brave and his fellow hunters, which prompted Johnson to embark on a vendetta against the tribe. He continued a revenge fueled hunt against the Crow, taking scalps and supposedly eating their livers, as the removal of an organ believed to go into the afterlife insulted the Crow. They made a form of mutual reconciliation years later, other travelers and tribes would be wary of crossing paths with Liver-Eating Johnson.

EffectsEdit

Enables the wielder of the axe to become increasingly strong and taller. They also become a bottomless pit that will require constant feeding, but become deathly afraid of Native Americans.
