In legend a talisman made of Wolfsbane can word off Vampires, and other evil spirits. The vampire was incapable of approching me because my wolfsbane talisman repelled him. Wolfsbane is one name for the genus Aconitum, a poisonous plant long used to kill predator animals in much of the world. While the plant itself is real, it plays a large part in werewolf legends and mythology.
It is the poison used by a murderer in the third of the Cadfael Chronicles , Monk's Hood by Ellis Peters , published in and set in in Shrewsbury.
In I, Claudius , Livia, wife of Augustus, was portrayed discussing the merits, antidotes, and use of aconite with a poisoner.
It also makes a showing in alternate history novels and historical fantasy, such as S. Stirling's, On the Oceans of Eternity , where a renegade warlord is poisoned with aconite-laced food by his own chief of internal security, and in the television show Merlin , the lead character, Merlin, attempts to poison Arthur with aconite while under a spell.
In the Korean television series Dae Jang Geum , set in the 15th and 16th centuries, Choi put wolf's bane in the previous queen's food.
Aconite also lends itself to use as a fictional poison in modern settings. In the television series Midsomer Murders , season four, episode one "Garden of Death" , aconite is used as a murder weapon, mixed into fettuccine with pesto to mask the taste.
In Rizzoli and Isles season one, episode three "Sympathy For The Devil", Maura Isles discovered a teenaged boy named Matisse killed by monkshood mixed into a water bottle.
In the pilot episode of Forever , monkshood is used to murder a train conductor leading to a subway train collision. In his mythological poem Metamorphoses , Ovid tells how the herb comes from the slavering mouth of Cerberus , the three-headed dog that guarded the gates of Hades.
Thus, some ancient Greeks possibly would have believed that this poison, mythically born of Cerberus's lips, was literally the same as that to be found inside the mouth of a rabid dog.
In John Keats ' poem Ode to Melancholy wolf's bane is mentioned in the first verse as the source of "poisonous wine" possibly referring to Medea.
Towards the end of the film, "Van Helsing holds up a sprig of wolf's bane". Van Helsing educates the nurse protecting Mina from Count Dracula to place sprigs of wolf's bane around Mina's neck for protection.
Furthermore, he instructs that wolf's bane is a plant that grows in central Europe. There, the natives use it to protect themselves against vampires.
As long as the wolf's bane is present in Mina's bedroom, she will be safe from Count Dracula. During the night, Count Dracula desires to visit Mina.
He appears outside her window in the form of a flying bat. He causes the nurse to become drowsy, and when she awakes from his spell, she removes the sprigs of wolf's bane, placing it in a hallway chest of drawers.
With the removal of the wolf's bane from Mina's room, Count Dracula mysteriously appears and transports Mina to the dungeon of the castle.
In the French novel Our Lady of the Flowers , the boy Culafroy eats "Napel aconite", so that the "Renaissance would take possession of the child through the mouth.
Wolf's bane is used as an analogy for the power of divine communion in Liber 65 —16, one of Aleister Crowley 's Holy Books of Thelema.
Wolf's bane is mentioned in one verse of Lady Gwen Thompson 's poem "Rede of the Wiccae", a long version of the Wiccan Rede : "Widdershins go when Moon doth wane, And the werewolves howl by the dread wolfsbane.

This science fiction novel takes place in the year , if we take literally the age of years given for a Korean War identity bracelet that is dated A rogue planet , populated by strange machines known as Pyramids, has stolen the Earth from the Solar system , taking it off into interstellar space.
The moon has been 'ignited' by alien technology to serve as a miniature sun around which both planets orbit. This new sun is rekindled every 5 years, though as the book opens, the rekindling is nearly overdue and there is fear among the populace that it may never happen again.
The global population has crashed to a hundred million, due largely to the radical climate changes that followed the arrival of the alien planet.
Most of the surviving humans are 'Citizens,' passive people living lives bound up with elaborate social rituals, various styles of meditation , and carefully prescribed selflessness.
This constraining lifestyle frequently causes Citizens to succumb to mental breakdowns and run 'amok,' attacking anyone within reach. Persons who commit this or any other crime face ritual execution.
A small minority of the population who retain their aggressive natures are referred to as 'Wolves. These Wolves, however, generally see themselves as superior humans and refer to the Citizens as 'Sheep.
The Pyramid aliens' motives are unknown, their only visible presence being a lone Pyramid perched atop a leveled-off Mount Everest and the transparent 'Eyes' which form over individuals who have supposedly attained or approached a state of meditative perfection or ' Nirvana.
The story opens in the town of Wheeling, West Virginia. We first see Roget Germyn, a banker and model Citizen.
An Eye forms over him while he is meditating, but he is interrupted and the Eye vanishes. He then returns to a more Earthly concern - whether or not the 'sun' will be regenerated, ending the current period of hunger and cold.
Attention then shifts to Glenn Tropile, who lives among the Citizens, but regards himself as one of the feared Wolves. He has even managed to slowly coach his wife, Gala, toward a more Wolfish outlook.
Despite this rebellious attitude, he maintains a genuine interest in meditation. Glenn Tropile is exposed as a Wolf while stealing bread.
He escapes execution and is collected by a community of Wolves living in the town of Princeton. They find he doesn't entirely fit in there either, but hope he may get collected by an 'Eye', giving them a chance to measure this process in detail.
This eventually happens and they find, as expected, that his disappearance was facilitated by the Pyramid on Everest. Glenn Tropile has been sent to the Pyramid's planet.
We then learn his fate. To the Pyramids, the human race is nothing more than a useful source of 'Components' for a complex world-machine devoted mostly to feeding these artificial and semi-organic beings.
Tropile is suspended in a fluid-filled tank and 'wired in' to the vast computer system. Later, he is linked to seven other humans as a 'Snowflake' - eight minds joined together to facilitate more complex tasks than a single human Component could manage.
In this condition, Tropile wakes, manages to retain his sanity, and wakes the other humans. They eventually merge with one another to form a sophisticated collective mind.
The freed Snowflake then spies on the Pyramids, finding that they have been traveling for some two million years, and have collected many species as Components, but seem locked in meaningless rituals surrounding an alien creature at the world's North Pole.
They later realize that this is the last survivor of the race that created the Pyramids. In the meantime, they have modified the collection process of human Components so that it selects persons known to at least one of the eight people composing the Snowflake which has become almost as ruthless and inhuman as the alien Pyramids.
These humans are intended as 'mice,' disrupters of the planet, and later as an army with which to fight the Pyramids. Roget Germyn is one of them, as is Tropile's wife.
Facing a philosophical dead-end, the 'Snowflake' decides to separate its component minds to study the problem.
