Origins[edit | edit source]

This beautiful calavera is made entirely of sugar, decorated with swirls of icing, glittering beads and rhinestones, and a few feathers, and originates from a mystic in Mexico who made such creations for special order during La Dia De Los Muertos, or, the Day of the Dead. Although these skulls have come a long way from their original creations in the sixteen hundreds, this skull in particular can go a long way backward to it's roots in Mexican culture - at least, somewhat.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Looking into the artifact's eye sockets while focusing on a particular family member from the past summons their spirit in corporeal form. The spirit can interact with the world like any other human, and has a pulse and heartbeat as if they were alive. However, the effect only happens during the night, and for as long as the artifact is in affect the person who used it will become increasingly catatonic, which could become fatal if the timing of the artifact use is long enough. The only time it can be used without this ill effect is during La Dia De Los Muertos, which takes place from October 31 and November 2.
