Scorpion

A scorpion

The scorpion was a creature that prayed upon the weaknesses of others. [1]

Scorpion Venom Edit

The Scorpion venom was more lethal than snake poison, but the small quantities administered by the sting made it less dangerous overall. It was a neurotoxin that destroyed nerve tissues and caused cardiac problems if injected. Kitsuki Magistrates discovered an antitoxin. [2]
