"To be Fresh and Stupid"

Films: The Leech Woman (1960)

Alias: None

Type: Mutant

Location: Civilized Area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: They say youth is wasted on the young. And they'd be right. But now, there's a second chance to screw up the age of good looks and brash decisions. With this new orchid, you can remain fresh and kicking...just make sure you're up for the price that comes with it.

History: Somewhere in the deep jungles of Africa, a life changer flourishes. A rare yet sacred orchid has the ability to reverse the aging process for a brief time, so long as there's a second ingredient. That being male brain juice from the pineal gland. It only makes sense that some petty Americans would find out about this. In particular, the vastly shallow couple Paul and June Talbot. The former craved fortune, but the latter wanted the youth. She made a deal with the tribe, sold that jackass Paul out as a sacrifice, and received the recipe. Then she allowed the tribe to get bombed. Lovely.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: Alas, having to kill every date for eternal youth isn’t what it's all cracked up to be, and June kills a lady out of desperation. It doesn't work, and she ends up throwing herself out a window to her death out of despair. Like a twisted version of the Dorian Gray story, her extended age is on full display on the corpse.

Powers/Abilities: June has been given a ring that pierces another's skin and extracts the fluid from the pineal gland.

Weakness: June must have her orchid/brain juice cocktail daily, otherwise she will revert into an increasingly elderly form.

Scariness Factor: 2-While no one wants to date someone after their brain fluid, it's hard not to pity June. Her husband was an abusive jerk, and not a day went by where anyone reminded her of her age. If only someone told her it's her actions, not her looks, that should define her.

Trivia: -The working title for this film was "The Leech".

-The ability to halt and reverse the aging process has been a scientific pursuit for some time. They've already done it with mice of all things. But while it has its perks (no need to kill men, here), who really wants to live forever?

Of their loves? So, she feasts on players?

To be forever young. What an idiotic notion.

This really was not worth it.

This...looks awkward without context.
Behold the hug of death!

In the end, it REALLY wasn't worth it.
