Introducing ...

Name: Asclepias
Story: The Unborn Trilogy - Golden Dawn
Status: Servant (of sorts)

Yet another lady who’s just slightly off her rocker.
Okay, maybe a little more than slightly. (Hoy. I’ve a lot of insane people kicking around this story.)
I actually see her as this sweet thing who wants to protect her brothers just as much as Atropa did. Only, like so many of her sisters, she seeks a more physical way to stop them. Honestly, none of them seem to understand the power of a good, old-fashionedly frank talk.

I must’ve changed and rejected so many things in the background for this one. Somehow, a whole lot of axes just felt right, and I like how it sort of clashes with her name. Asclepias being the genus for milkweeds, which in turn was named after Asclepius, the Greek god of healing. Axes ... healing ... I guess it’d work in some cases. But then, hitting a great many things with an axe would pretty much lead to said things being irreparable.
