In a small town, a long time ago, there was a mysterious string of disappearances, with the only hint left behind
being mysterious blue flower petals, later confirmed to be the petals of the aconitum flower, or the monkshood. The petals were always arranged into a trail, and they always led to the same place -- a small clearing in the center of a cluster of trees in the middle of the town. There, all signs of the perpetrator of the disappearances vanished inexplicably. Any bloodhound sent to track the kidnapper's scent would always, without exception, head straight to the clearing and stop right where the flower trail ended.

The unknown person became known as the Monkshood Man, and he continued to take people from their homes totally unnoticed while leaving a trail of monkshood petals. No one ever came forward to admitting to seeing him in action, though many have reported having a conversational partner vanish before their eyes just before smelling a sweet scent, followed by the appearance of flower petals.

At least one "witness" reported to have discovered a note left at the exact place an unnamed acquaintance had previously been. The handwriting was beautifully written in cursive, and incredibly grammatically correct. It was allegedly very formal, but conversational and friendly at the same time. The note was lost soon after its discovery, but one fragment of memory remains of the note.

The Monkshood Man stated simply that every single person that he took was needed somewhere else, for reasons never thoroughly explained. The significance of the clearing in the trees also remained unexplained. Shortly after the note vanished, all visits by the Monkshood Man abruptly ceased.

One researcher into the unusual incident discovered the significance of the monkshood flower. Monkshood is known also by the name wolf's bane, due to its toxicity which was used to kill wolves in older times. In some cultures, monkshood represents the presence of a dangerous foe, and that great caution should be taken. This find, however, appears as the exact opposite of what was written in the Monkshood Man's note, as he claimed in fact to be not the foe, but the hero.

The Monkshood Man has been long forgotten, and the incident survives in the memory of few, but he will never be completely forgotten.
