OriginEdit

Martin Luther was a priest and major proponent of change during the Protestant Reformation. He detested the practice of indulgences, church sponsored pardons that could be bought to supposedly forgive sins. He wrote a scathing critique of the practice in his Ninety-Five Theses and was excommunicated by the Pope and outlawed by the emperor. His theology challenged the then established rules of Christianity and the role of the Roman Catholic Church; those who still follows his teachings are now known as Lutherans.

EffectsEdit

Instills on overwhelming sense of pride in the victim concerning an organization they are a part of. Unfortunately, this intense pride results in the victim not tolerating any blemish to the said organization, leading them to becoming fanatical about exposing and eliminating any and all forms of corruption. If the "dose" given is large enough, or if the Cross remains around for a long enough time, the victim will eventually forgo all actions other than the pursuit of the elimination of corruption, such as eating, bathing, etc.

There was a rumor spread amongst Warehouse personnel that a brief chance encounter with the Cross was what triggered the events that led to Hitler rising to power as leader of the Nazi party. This rumor arose from the fact that the Cross was recovered from a secret stash of treasures the Nazis had been gathering since Hitler began his rise to power.
