Records suggest that the Triclone Orchid was first discovered between the years 135 AC and 150 AC by a monastery of [[Monastriist of Dogartan|Dogartan]] monks. The Triclone Orchid’s numbing capabilities were not discovered until 185 AC when an artist was attempting to create a dye out of the deep blue Orchid flower and accidentally spilled some of the water from the flower onto his hand, making it go numb after a few seconds of contact. It did not take the monks long to realize the potential medical use that the Triclone Orchid might have, whereupon they started to cultivate it.

As of now, Dogartan monks in Dorinn are still the sole provider for the Triclone Orchid, despite it being a rather profitable market. The Orchid can only grow on mountains or other areas of high altitude, and generally needs access to large amounts of water to properly grow, hence why few take up the challenge of growing the Orchid for a profit. However, the many wars that the Regalian Empire has fought in the past decade has impacted the availability of the Triclone Orchid by damaging the environment of various local populations.

The Triclone Orchid has a very distinct appearance that makes it easily distinguishable from the ordinary flower.

The flowers are a deep blue, almost violet, and measure approximately four inches across.

For centuries, the Triclone Orchid has been an aid to both healers and commoners alike. With its powerful numbing capabilities, the intricate flower has become a staple in healing clinics and medicine cabinets. It was first discovered in the Dorinn region of the Regalian Archipelago, where the orchid continues to thrive today. The Triclone Orchid grows high up in the mountains, where it is cultivated by the Dorinn monks which take residence there. Its unique name stems from the fact that the orchid flower branches into three identical buds, creating an odd yet aesthetically unique flower.

History

Records suggest that the Triclone Orchid was first discovered between the years 135 AC and 150 AC by a monastery of Dogartan monks. The Triclone Orchid’s numbing capabilities were not discovered until 185 AC when an artist was attempting to create a dye out of the deep blue Orchid flower and accidentally spilled some of the water onto his hand, making it go numb after a few seconds of contact. It did not take the monks long to realize the potential medical use that the Triclone Orchid might have, whereupon they started to cultivate it.

As of now, Dogartan monks in Dorinn are still the sole provider for the Triclone Orchid, despite it being a rather profitable market. The Orchid can only grow on mountains or other areas of high altitude, and generally need access to large amounts of water to properly grow, hence why few take up the challenge of growing the Orchid for a profit. Unfortunately, the many wars that the Regalian Empire has fought in the past decade have further impacted the availability of the Triclone Orchid by damaging the environment of the local populations.

Trivia

  • A Triclone Orchid flower is ready to be harvested when its flowers are a deep blue, and if they are harvested before this occurs then the potency of the water will be greatly weakened.
