OriginEdit

Martin Laurello also known by the stage names Human Owl and Bobby the Boy with the Revolving Head, was a German-American sideshow performer and biological rarity who could turn his head 180 degrees. To accomplish this feat, he reportedly practiced rotating his head for three years and also had to "dislocate various vertebrae". Being born with a slightly bent spine might have also aided Laurello in pulling off his act of flexibility. He performed with groups such as Ripley's Believe it or Not, Ringling Brothers, and Barnum & Bailey. He also trained animals to do things such as acrobatics.

EffectsEdit

When worn, whatever the user touches or interacts with will fully reverse into their opposite. It can make objects completely alter their orientation, transform fire into water, even make extreme hatred turn into tender love. However, sometimes the subject will be badly damaged from going counter the physical processes that normally constrain them.
