This is Arsenic. He’s the biggest bad of the big bads we have to face.
RIGHT. So. Here’s the deal with Arsenic. He was alive hundreds of sweeps ago, when all of our ancestors were around. He was a blueblood then. He also had the hots for MD’s ancestor, The Scion of Balance. He felt he was inferior to her, though, and he wasn’t very bright. I mean, yeah, he was a brilliant scientist and all, but still. Freaking idiot, man.
Anyway, he decided to experiment on himself to turn his blood a different color. He figured that the only way to be with the Scion was to be as high on the spectrum as her. This failed. Horrendously. Instead of turning his blood indigo like he wanted, it turned his blood white. How? Fuck if I know.
So yeah. He’s still around due to clones, I guess, and now he’s messing with us. He poisoned MD once, made her rage, poisoned me once, but I don’t rage. Most recently he’s gained the ability to take control of MD when she’s asleep, but that problem sort of fixed itself. He’s just as incompetent as he was back then.
