OriginEdit

Milo of Croton was a sixth century Greek wrestler. The ancient Greeks typically attributed remarkable deaths to famous persons in keeping with their characters. The date of Milo's death is unknown, but according to Strabo and Pausanias, Milo was walking in a forest when he came upon a tree-trunk split with wedges. In what was probably intended as a display of strength, Milo inserted his hands into the cleft to rend the tree. The wedges fell from the cleft, and the tree closed upon his hands, trapping him. Unable to free himself, the wrestler was devoured by wolves.

This doll was carved from that very tree trunk.

EffectsEdit

Amplifies the user's unique scent, allowing dogs and other canines to locate them with ease. Those that appear may quickly contract rabies and violently attack the user.
