Abridged Guide to Evil Wikia

"She was a Poisoner, and when she finally admitted it to herself the world shivered to the sound of her damnation."
―Five Stories[1]

The Poisoner is an Evil Name. The Name is first introduced in Book 6.[2]


While making poisons, the Poisoner finds a knack for making her own poisons, even those written on no pages.

The feeling is described "as if there was something guiding her hand, and it was the same when she was attempting to find servants and kinsmen who would turn on a target."[1]

Even before settling into the Name, the Poisoner has killed by baking and serving two pastries full of nightshade.[1]

The Poisoner is able to turn mix Manticore venom with blood and rhododendro, turning it into a powerful acid.[2]
