Origin[edit | edit source]

These balloons were created by Michael Faraday in 1824, during the course of experiments with various gases. One is red, one is blue and one is yellow. All three are deflated and kept in a glass jar.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Each of the three balloons colors relates to its effects. Michael Faraday used different colors for different subject matter. With the blue balloons he put water and oxygen in them, red balloons he tested with fire and yellow balloons he tried with electricity. They must be soaked them in neutralizer to cancel their effects.

The blue balloons effect does not take place until after it is blown up. It drains all oxygen from your blood, replacing it with water. This causes over-saturation and death.

The red balloons effects take hold as soon as you place your lips on it. When you first put your lips on it, it will release all of the fire from within itself and burn you to a crisp. Once it's job is over, it will absorb the fire back inside itself.

The yellow balloon is the one least likely kill because it's effects are the least severe. While inflating, your hair should start to stand from the static electricity. One it's fully inflated, however, it unleashes arcs of powerful electricity while deflating. If tied it willcontinue to emit lightning until neutralised.
