|Doorknob from the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory|
Even the neutralizer gloves find this artifact a little too hot to handle.
|Effects||Burns the victim alive until they spontaneously combust.|
|Source||The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire|
|Activation||Holding the knob with one's hand.|
|First Appearance||"Past Imperfect"|
As the fire within the factory spread, the workers became trapped inside. The door knob absorbed their pain and suffering as the women tried to get out alive - as such, holding the doorknob in one's hand will inflict the same tortuous burns on the victim as the workers received. Agent Steve Jinks learned that it is capable of causing injury even through neutralizer gloves when it burnt through his whilst being snagged. This effect becomes worse with prolonged exposure, eventually causing spontaneous combustion and death. It is currently in the Warehouse.
It was discovered on a farm in Wisconsin, owned by a woman whose great uncle who had an OCD that made him want to collect door knobs. After it was collected by Agents Jinks and Donovan, it was stolen by Sally Stukowski, who would later use it to torture and kill Theadora Stanton. The doorknob was found in Stukowski's purse when Warehouse Agents apprehended her, and was quickly bagged.
