Object Information

Vervain is a potent herb, and also a vampire's most well-known weakness. Vervain, if touched by a vampire, can cause burns to the skin. If a human has ingested vervain and a vampire feeds on them, the vampire is affected within seconds and extremely weakened. If a human ingests or holds vervain somewhere on the body (such as holding it in a hand or pocket, or wearing it in jewellery), the human is protected by vampire compulsion and entitled to free will.

How To Use Vervain[]

Vervain is used to stop vampire's compelling humans . It was made as every strength has to have a weakness. Humans can protect themselves from attacks, if ingested or carried on their person. Although, when a vampire looks at a human, they can't tell if they are using vervain or not. If vervain comes into contact, in/on a vampire that area of the body will burn. If a vampire has a lot of vervain it can badly wound or kill them.
