For centuries the Triclone Orchid has been both a tool and an aid to healers and commoners alike. With its powerful numbing capabilities, the Triclone Orchid has become a staple in many healing clinics and family healers’ medicine cabinets. It was first discovered in the [[Dorinn]] region of the [[Regalian Archipelago]], where the orchid thrives today. The Triclone Orchid flourishes 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 spikes branch into three identical stems, creating an odd yet aesthetically unique flower.  
Triclone Orchids are three-headed flowers native to [[Anglia]], once upon a time almost exclusively growing around the region’s [[Dragon]] Temples. With time the plant was able to spread, and now serves as one of many symbols of Anglia, with a tie to the [[Dogartan Unionists]] who often keep large fields of the plant in honor of those acclaimed with “first discovery.The plant is also known for its ability to numb the flesh, making it useful in many medical circles.


==History==
==History==
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.  
The Triclone Orchid has a history dating back well before most assume it was discovered. Referenced at the very start of the [[Regalian Kingdom]], centuries before the [[Cataclysm]], the Triclone Orchid remained rare as [[Dragon Worshipers]] in Anglia actively prevented the plant’s spread beyond their claimed territories and the Dragon Temples which were littered across Anglia. By the time of the formation of the [[Regalian Empire]], however,the Orchid was no longer intensely guarded and started seeping out into the broader Anglian countryside. The traditional story of the plant’s discovery states that in 173 AC, a trio of Dogartan lay-priests seeking isolation came to the foothills of a great mountain in [[Door-Inner]]. Upon discovering the flower, they took it as a divine sign they had reached the proper site to establish their own Celery. From then on, they took to harvesting the Triclone Orchids, and eventually, native Anglian alchemists converted to the faith determined the plant to have healing applications in [[Alchemy]], aside from its decorative purpose. Since the rebirth of the Dragons across [[Aloria]] in recent years, the Triclone Orchid has gained increased notoriety among the Dragon faithful of the Regalian Empire for its fringe connection to the Anglian style of worship and faith. The plant remains populous in the wild as well, and likely will for many years.


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.

Triclone Orchids sit at a maximum of six inches tall, on a thick, dark green stem with a trio of short pedate leaves the same hue as the stem at the plant’s base. The plant’s main feature is its head, which always features three identical trumpet-shaped flowers roughly an inch long, with a deep blue, almost violet, hue to the petals with lines of white running up the middle and surrounding the half-exposed, similarly white, carpel. The main flower is positioned at a slight angle at the top of the plant, with the other two blooms located slightly lower on either side of it.
==Appearance ==
The Triclone Orchid has a very distinct appearance that makes it easily distinguishable from the ordinary flower. To start, the Triclone Orchid has a five to six inch stem that is thicker than the average flower stem, allowing it to withstand the harsher mountain climate. The Orchid has three identical flower spikes at the top of the stem; one in the center, and then one on either side of it, each flower having the appearance of small trumpets. The flowers are a deep blue, almost violet, and measure approximately four inches across.

==Uses and Abilities==
The Triclone Orchid is primarily used by healers to numb a person’s wounds. This can make the process of stitches much less painful, and it can generally relieve the pain of an injury for a while depending on the amount used. When the flower is pressed it will release a thin, water-like substance. The flower’s fluids alone has strong numbing capabilities when directly applied to a specific area of the body. However, it will evaporate quicker if made into a salve or soaked in a rag. The fluids from the Triclone Orchid can also be used to make a tea, which can help a person fall asleep, and alleviate general pain in the body when consumed.
The Triclone Orchid’s best use is in the act of healing others, though it plays a less direct role than some other plants. Extracts of the Orchid can help to numb skin and areas of the body where they are applied over, allowing for easier surgeries and less pain for those suffering. While some sensational stories may speak of it freezing an entire body solid, at the mercy of any number of means, this is not possible. The plant’s other uses are purely aesthetic, being used to decorate one’s home, especially if they are a Dragon Worshiper, though they are also simply used as decoration by any  man or woman with Anglian backgrounds.
 
*9-12 drops - This is a relatively low amount and is strong enough to completely numb small cuts and scrapes, and can dull the pain of larger wounds. In a tea, it would be enough to dull small aches and make a person drowsy.
*12-15 drops - This amount of the Triclone Orchid’s water is enough to numb medium amount of pain, and can dull or weaken the pain of larger wounds. In a tea, this amount could dull moderate pain in the body and will put a person to sleep quickly.  
*16-20 drops - This is generally considered to be a large dose of water and can numb larger amounts of pain, however at this point more water may be needed to continuously dull the pain depending on the size of the wound. When used in a tea the consumer will effectively be knocked out for a few hours.

==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. It can become toxic if too much is consumed at one time.
*Triclone Orchids are probably not orchids, though this botanical debate has raged for nearly a century by now.
*A healers clinic once purchased a flask of what they thought to be Triclone Orchid water but was instead just plain water. Interestingly enough, the people who drank it felt much better afterward. Turns out these people were mostly just dehydrated.  
*The Dogartan cloisters of [[Eldringen]] in the [[Regalian Archipelago]] produce more Triclone Orchids than those groups in Door-Inner.
*The height, weight, and race of a person will determine how much of the Triclone Orchid water is needed. A bulky [[Dakkar]] will need considerably more water compared to an average [[Ailor]].  
*[[Zondespael]] literature has tended to keep away from Triclone Orchids after one such piece incited a Dragon Worshiper mob to lynch the poet who had composed it.

Triclone Orchids are three-headed flowers native to Anglia, once upon a time almost exclusively growing around the region’s Dragon Temples. With time the plant was able to spread, and now serves as one of many symbols of Anglia, with a tie to the Dogartan Unionists who often keep large fields of the plant in honor of those acclaimed with “first discovery.” The plant is also known for its ability to numb the flesh, making it useful in many medical circles.

The Triclone Orchid has a history dating back well before most assume it was discovered. Referenced at the very start of the Regalian Kingdom, centuries before the Cataclysm, the Triclone Orchid remained rare as Dragon Worshipers in Anglia actively prevented the plant’s spread beyond their claimed territories and the Dragon Temples which were littered across Anglia. By the time of the formation of the Regalian Empire, however,the Orchid was no longer intensely guarded and started seeping out into the broader Anglian countryside.

Upon discovering the flower, they took it as a divine sign they had reached the proper site to establish their own Celery. From then on, they took to harvesting the Triclone Orchids, and eventually, native Anglian alchemists converted to the faith determined the plant to have healing applications in Alchemy, aside from its decorative purpose. Since the rebirth of the Dragons across Aloria in recent years, the Triclone Orchid has gained increased notoriety among the Dragon faithful of the Regalian Empire for its fringe connection to the Anglian style of worship and faith.

  • Triclone Orchids are probably not orchids, though this botanical debate has raged for nearly a century by now.
  • The Dogartan cloisters of Eldringen in the Regalian Archipelago produce more Triclone Orchids than those groups in Door-Inner.
