Origin[edit | edit source]

John Alexander Lawson's (1978 - ) change into the person he had become after twenty years of living with an uncaring mother and an abusive step father he dropped out of high school and started to deal drugs. Lawson also told his clients to call him Pazuzu after the main demon in the Exorcist movie. Anyone who would listen would hear stories where Lawson pained himself as a combination of Charles Manson, Anton Le Vay and Alistair Crowley. To take the act a step further he used a Dremel tool to sharpen his teeth and studied animal and human sacrifices. Finally he was ready to take it a step further and killed a former classmate so that could eat her heart. After being arrested and put in jail police went into his home to confiscate several items ranging from bones (later determined to be animal or fake) to a pair of Mannequin Legs that Lawson used during rituals of 'Black Magic'.

Effects[edit | edit source]

A simple touch of the legs without gloves causes whoever touched it to have horrendous nightmares which will eventually lead to insomnia, paranoia and eventual insanity. The odd design causes a hypnotizing effect that draws people in to touch it.

Storage and Handling[edit | edit source]

Stored on a podium in the Dark Vault.

Neutralizer gloves are mandatory. Despite use of the gloves, this artifact will still affect agents very quickly. If the artifact needs to be removed from its neutralizer field, move into a neutralizer container within one minute of removal from its field. Special goggles are needed as well to prevent the allure of the legs.
