|Pulley Block from the Mary Celeste|
|Effects||Creates a dangerous serpentine rope.|
Label reads, "Creates a dangerous serpentine rope". Whenever someone touches the rope it coils around the user's body like a snake, preventing them from moving. The more they struggle the tighter it gets and it can hold more than one person at once. If tied up too long, user(s) could be crushed. First discovered by Warehouse 12, before H.G. Wells worked there. It is currently in Warehouse 13.
HistoryEditThe Mary Celeste was an American brigantine ship discovered on 4 December 1872 in the Atlantic Ocean, unmanned and apparently abandoned (one lifeboat was missing, along with its 7 crew), although the weather was fine and her crew had been experienced and capable sailors. The Mary Celeste was in seaworthy condition and still under sail heading toward the Strait of Gibralter. She had been at sea for a month and had over six months' worth of food and water on board. Her cargo was virtually untouched and the personal belongings of passengers and crew were still in place, including valuables. The crew was never seen or heard from again. The Mary Celeste crew's disappearance is often cited as the greatest maritime mystery in history. The ship was said to be "cursed" and had a long history of disasters and catastrophes, and three captains died on the ship. The ship was destroyed in 1885 when it was intentionally wrecked off the coast of Haiti.
However, in the WH 13 Comic Book issue #3 it was revealed that the ship is actually an artifact on its own and is currently in the Warehouse.
