OriginsEdit

Katia and Maurice Krafft were married volcanologists who were working at Mount Unzen in Japan when it erupted. They went around the world filming and documenting eruptions to show the locals it was dangerous to stay. One instance where this worked is when they showed footage of Mount Pinatubo to Philippine President Cory Aquino, convincing him evacuation would be needed. They perished in a pyroclastic flow that instantly killed them and around forty more. Interestingly, the day before they died, Maurice said "I am never afraid because I have seen so much eruptions in 23 years that even if I die tomorrow, I don't care".

EffectsEdit

The suits were imbued with the Krafft's passion and defiance, amazingly surviving the inferno. They repel fire, anything from a match flame and firecrackers to a flamethrower. However, in the presence of molten material, they will actually attract it to the suits. This is kept in the Fire Aisle as a way to combat any affects, but is recommended to not be used against volcanic artifacts.
