OriginEdit

Joseph Lister was a surgeon who pioneered antiseptic surgery. He applied the newly discovered ideas of microbiology over miasma “bad air” theory to medicine. Lister would use phenol to sterilize wounds and surgical instruments, thereby preventing infection, reducing mortality rates and increasing recovery time.

EffectsEdit

Renders anything it touches completely sterile. Inanimate objects will have all biological components eradicated, while organisms will have only foreign bodies such as viruses and non-native bacteria destroyed. It seems to release a puff of infectious diseases every time it is used, propagating the disproven miasma theory.
