Wolfbane Navigation menu VideoRadiant Resort (Tropical Resort Classic 16bit Remix) She has honed her powers to shift between human and wolf characteristics but must keep her feral instincts at bay when she does. Wolfsbane has made minor appearances in animated television, and the character made a live-action cinematic debut in the film The Wolfbane Mutantsportrayed by Maisie Williams. She stays in half-wolf forms for this time, Mascarpone Fett turning completely human causes her to revert to the slave identity that the Genoshans had created for Joy Club. Cannonball Karma Mirage Sunspot Wolfsbane. In the pilot episode of Forevermonkshood is used to murder a train conductor leading to a subway train collision.
Wine red or red-purple occurs in a hybrid of the climber Aconitum hemsleyanum. There is a pale semi-saturated pink produced by cultivation as well as bicolor hybrids e.
Purplish shades range from very dark blue-purple to a very pale lavender that is quite greyish. The latter occurs in the "Stainless Steel" hybrid.
Neutral blue rather than purplish or greenish , greenish-blue, and intense blues, available in some related Delphinium plants — particularly Delphinium grandiflorum — do not occur in this genus.
Aconitum plants that have purplish-blue flowers are often inaccurately referred to as having blue flowers, even though the purple tone dominates.
If there are species with true neutral blue or greenish-blue flowers they are rare and do not occur in cultivation.
Also unlike the genus Delphinium , there are no bright red nor intense pink Aconitum flowers, as none known are pollinated by hummingbirds.
There are no orange-flowered varieties nor any that are green. Aconitum is typically more intense in color than Helleborus but less intense than Delphinium.
There are no blackish flowers in Aconitum , unlike with Helleborus. The lack of double-flowered forms in the horticultural trade stands in contrast with the other genera of Ranunculaceae used regularly in gardens.
This includes one major genus that is known solely by most gardeners for a double-flowered form of one species — Ranunculus asiaticus , known colloquially in the trade as "Ranunculus".
The Ranunculus genus contains approximately species. One other species of Ranunculus has seen minor use in gardens, the 'Flore Pleno' doubled form of Ranunculus acris.
Doubled forms of Consolida and Delphinium dominate the horticultural trade while single forms of Anemone , Aquilegia , Clematis , Helleborus , Pulsatilla — and the related Papaver — retain some popularity.
No doubled forms of Aconitum are known. Aconitum species have been recorded as food plant of the caterpillars of several moths. The yellow tiger moth Arctia flavia , and the purple-shaded gem Euchalcia variabilis are at home on A.
The purple-lined sallow Pyrrhia exprimens , and Blepharita amica were found eating from A. The dot moth Melanchra persicariae occurs both on A. The golden plusia Polychrysia moneta is hosted by A.
Other moths associated with Aconitum species include the wormwood pug Eupithecia absinthiata , satyr pug E.
Aconitum flowers are pollinated by long-tongued bumblebees. The effect is greater in certain species, such as Aconitum napellus , than in others, such as Aconitum lycoctonum.
The species typically utilized by gardeners fare well in well-drained evenly moist "humus-rich" garden soils like many in the related Helleborus and Delphinium genera, and can grow in the partial shade.
Species not used in gardens tend to require more exacting conditions e. Aconitum noveboracense. Most Aconitum species prefer to have their roots cool and moist, with the majority of the leaves exposed to sun, like the related Clematis.
Aconitum species can be propagated by divisions of the root or by seeds, with care taken to avoid leaving pieces of the root where livestock might be poisoned.
All parts of these plants should be handled while wearing protective disposable gloves. As a result, they are not described as being "heavy feeders" needing a higher quantity of fertilizer versus most other flowering plants — unlike gardeners' delphiniums.
As with most in the Ranunculaceae and Papaveraceae families, they dislike root disturbance. As with most in Ranunculaceae, seeds that are not planted soon after harvesting should be stored moist-packed in vermiculite to avoid dormancy and viability issues.
The German seed company Jelitto offers "Gold Nugget" seeds that are advertised as utilizing a coating that enables the seed to germinate immediately, bypassing the double dormancy defect from a typical gardener's point of view Aconitum — and many other species in Ranunculaceae genera — use as a reproductive strategy.
By contrast, seeds that are not immediately planted or moist-packed are described as perhaps taking as long as two years to germinate, being prone to very erratic germination in terms of time required per seed , and comparatively quick seed viability loss e.
These issues are typical for many species in Ranunculaceae, such as Pulsatilla pasqueflower. Monkshood and other members of the genus Aconitum contain substantial amounts of the highly toxic aconitine and related alkaloids, especially in their roots and tubers.
Aconitine is a potent neurotoxin and cardiotoxin that causes persistent depolarization of neuronal sodium channels in tetrodotoxin -sensitive tissues.
The influx of sodium through these channels and the delay in their repolarization increases their excitability and may lead to diarrhea, convulsions, ventricular arrhythmia and death.
Marked symptoms may appear almost immediately, usually not later than one hour, and "with large doses death is almost instantaneous".
Death usually occurs within two to six hours in fatal poisoning 20 to 40 ml of tincture may prove fatal. This is followed by a sensation of burning, tingling, and numbness in the mouth and face, and of burning in the abdomen.
Cardiovascular features include hypotension , sinus bradycardia , and ventricular arrhythmias. Other features may include sweating, dizziness, difficulty in breathing, headache, and confusion.
The main causes of death are ventricular arrhythmias and asystole, or paralysis of the heart or respiratory center. Treatment of poisoning is mainly supportive.
All patients require close monitoring of blood pressure and cardiac rhythm. Gastrointestinal decontamination with activated charcoal can be used if given within one hour of ingestion.
Other drugs used for ventricular arrhythmia include lidocaine , amiodarone , bretylium , flecainide , procainamide , and mexiletine. Cardiopulmonary bypass is used if symptoms are refractory to treatment with these drugs.
Severe toxicity is not expected from skin contact [ citation needed ] ; however paraesthesia , including tingling and feelings of coldness in the extremities, has been reported, as has mild toxicity headache, nausea and palpitations.
Aconite has long been used in Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine. Aconite was also described in Greek and Roman medicine by Theophrastus , Dioscorides , and Pliny the Elder , who most likely prescribed the Alpine species Aconitum lycoctonum.
Aconitum chasmanthum is listed as critically endangered,  Aconitum heterophyllum as endangered,  and Aconitum violaceum as vulnerable due to overcollection for Ayurvedic use.
The roots of A. It contains large quantities of the alkaloid pseudaconitine , which is a deadly poison.
The root of A. Several species of Aconitum have been used as arrow poisons. The Minaro in Ladakh use A. The Chinese also used Aconitum poisons both for hunting  and for warfare.
Usually, one man in a kayak armed with a poison-tipped lance would hunt the whale, paralyzing it with the poison and causing it to drown.
It has, albeit rarely, been hypothesized that Socrates was executed via an extract from an Aconitum species, such as Aconitum napellus , rather than via hemlock, Conium maculatum.
Aconitum was commonly used by the ancient Greeks as an arrow poison but can be used for other forms of poisoning. It has been hypothesized that Alexander the Great was murdered via aconite.
Genetic analysis suggests that Aconitum as it was delineated before the 21st century is nested within Delphinium sensu lato , that also includes Aconitella , Consolida , Delphinium staphisagria , D.
To make Aconitum monophyletic , " A. To make Delphinium monophyletic, the new genus Staphisagria was erected containing S.
Aconite has been understood as a poison from ancient times, and is frequently represented as such in fiction. In Greek mythology , the goddess Hecate is said to have invented aconite,  which Athena used to transform Arachne into a spider.
In BBC drama Shakespeare and Hatherway, series 2, episode 9, a tennis player is poisoned through the skin of his palm by aconite smeared on the handle of his racquet.
As a well-known poison from ancient times, aconite is well-suited for historical fiction. It is the poison used by a murderer in the third of the Cadfael Chronicles , Monk's Hood by Ellis Peters , published in and set in in Shrewsbury.
In I, Claudius , Livia, wife of Augustus, was portrayed discussing the merits, antidotes, and use of aconite with a poisoner.
It also makes a showing in alternate history novels and historical fantasy, such as S. Stirling's, On the Oceans of Eternity , where a renegade warlord is poisoned with aconite-laced food by his own chief of internal security, and in the television show Merlin , the lead character, Merlin, attempts to poison Arthur with aconite while under a spell.
In the Korean television series Dae Jang Geum , set in the 15th and 16th centuries, Choi put wolf's bane in the previous queen's food.
Aconite also lends itself to use as a fictional poison in modern settings. In the television series Midsomer Murders , season four, episode one "Garden of Death" , aconite is used as a murder weapon, mixed into fettuccine with pesto to mask the taste.
In Rizzoli and Isles season one, episode three "Sympathy For The Devil", Maura Isles discovered a teenaged boy named Matisse killed by monkshood mixed into a water bottle.
In the pilot episode of Forever , monkshood is used to murder a train conductor leading to a subway train collision. In his mythological poem Metamorphoses , Ovid tells how the herb comes from the slavering mouth of Cerberus , the three-headed dog that guarded the gates of Hades.
Thus, some ancient Greeks possibly would have believed that this poison, mythically born of Cerberus's lips, was literally the same as that to be found inside the mouth of a rabid dog.
In John Keats ' poem Ode to Melancholy wolf's bane is mentioned in the first verse as the source of "poisonous wine" possibly referring to Medea.
Towards the end of the film, "Van Helsing holds up a sprig of wolf's bane". Van Helsing educates the nurse protecting Mina from Count Dracula to place sprigs of wolf's bane around Mina's neck for protection.
Furthermore, he instructs that wolf's bane is a plant that grows in central Europe. There, the natives use it to protect themselves against vampires.
As long as the wolf's bane is present in Mina's bedroom, she will be safe from Count Dracula. During the night, Count Dracula desires to visit Mina.
He appears outside her window in the form of a flying bat. He causes the nurse to become drowsy, and when she awakes from his spell, she removes the sprigs of wolf's bane, placing it in a hallway chest of drawers.
With the removal of the wolf's bane from Mina's room, Count Dracula mysteriously appears and transports Mina to the dungeon of the castle.
This eventually happens and they find, as expected, that his disappearance was facilitated by the Pyramid on Everest.
Glenn Tropile has been sent to the Pyramid's planet. We then learn his fate. To the Pyramids, the human race is nothing more than a useful source of 'Components' for a complex world-machine devoted mostly to feeding these artificial and semi-organic beings.
Tropile is suspended in a fluid-filled tank and 'wired in' to the vast computer system. Later, he is linked to seven other humans as a 'Snowflake' - eight minds joined together to facilitate more complex tasks than a single human Component could manage.
In this condition, Tropile wakes, manages to retain his sanity, and wakes the other humans. They eventually merge with one another to form a sophisticated collective mind.
The freed Snowflake then spies on the Pyramids, finding that they have been traveling for some two million years, and have collected many species as Components, but seem locked in meaningless rituals surrounding an alien creature at the world's North Pole.
They later realize that this is the last survivor of the race that created the Pyramids. In the meantime, they have modified the collection process of human Components so that it selects persons known to at least one of the eight people composing the Snowflake which has become almost as ruthless and inhuman as the alien Pyramids.
These humans are intended as 'mice,' disrupters of the planet, and later as an army with which to fight the Pyramids. Roget Germyn is one of them, as is Tropile's wife.
Facing a philosophical dead-end, the 'Snowflake' decides to separate its component minds to study the problem. Restored to individual identity, Glenn Tropile becomes horrified at what he has done.
However, the majority of the others want to carry on. While they are arguing, one of their number is taken over by the mind of the alien at the North Pole, who warns them that the Pyramids have noticed them and plan to wipe out half the planet to get rid of them.
They initially re-merge their personalities as the Snowflake and expedite their plans. Tropile decides he must physically disconnect himself from the Snowflake and leave to lead the humans.
They manage to defeat the Pyramids, but not before the remainder of the Snowflake is also destroyed. The humans free many of the other Components and ship them back to Earth.
Tropile now finds he is a hero of sorts, but does not fit the role though he never truly fit any role in which he was placed - Sheep, Wolf, or Component.
He also sees that there is a need for someone to wire themselves back into the alien planet's surviving systems, to re-kindle the 'sun' every five years and perhaps return the Earth to its original orbit.
He doesn't want to do it alone, but most of the people he knows are either unwilling or unsuitable.
On the last page, though, his wife agrees to join him. He expects that there will later be others, that "[t]he ring of fire [will] grow. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
