Deathroot has been used in magic and potion making for centuries. It's a fragile-looking plant with a thin stalk and purple flowers, which fruits once a year developing bright red fleshy pods that cause disorientation and dizziness if ingested. There are two varieties. The more common Arcanist Deathroot was first found by Archon Hadrianus when he discovered it growing on several dead slaves. The other, Lunatic's Deathroot, is most closely associated with the story of the courtesan Melusine, who sought revenge on a powerful magister and his family. She harvested the plant, baked it into small pies for the magister's banquet, and presented them to the magister at a banquet. All the guests were seized by terrifying hallucinations after eating the pies and tore each other to pieces.

- In The Last Court, it is said that deathroot is most easily a poison, but with the correct preparation it could be used to cleanse a well which had been tainted by "some foulness of the earth" and begun to smell like brine mixed with rotting fruit. The well had caused an outbreak of disease which came with a burning fever and loosened the bowels, and in the worst cases, killed the sufferer. Deathroot was picked with gloves, and after being treated with the deathroot preparation, the well was clear and fresh again within a week.
