These items (a vial of cyanide, a club, a pistol, a knife, and rope) were all the items used to kill Rasputin. Shortly after his murder, agents from Warehouse 12 and 13 took the items from various sources. The items have never been fully understood, but many agents belive the weapons absorbed the pain and frustration of the moment, that they now causes extreme pain to people hurt with the items, but the victim will survive.

Grigori Yefimovich Rasputin (21 January [O.S. 9 January] 1869 – 30 December [O.S. 17 December] 1916) was a Russian mystic and advisor to the Romanovs, the Russian imperial family. He was not a monk, while he was never officially connected to the Orthodox Church, but considered a "strannik" (or pilgrim) wandering from cloister to cloister. He was regarded as a starets, an "elder", a title usually reserved for monk-confessors by those believing him to be a psychic and faith healer. Ceaseless Rasputin talked about religion and he impressed many people with his knowledge and ability to explain the Bible in an uncomplicated way.

Around late December, 1916, Rasputin was lured to Mokia Palace, where noblemen poisoined wine and pastries with cyanide. Rasputin refused the meal, so the men left in surprised. They came back, watching Rasputin eating the food with no effects. He was then taken outside, where he was beat with a club, stabbed, and shot in the head and torso. To the murderers's surprise, he was still alive. He was then rapped in rope and thrown into the cold Neva River. After the events of the night, his body was found with one arm stretched out of the rope. They found that he died of hypothermia, not the poison, beating, or shoting.
