Trivia

  • Medieval European medicine was based on the concept of Humorism, in which illnesses resulted from an imbalance in one or more of four body fluids: blood, phlegm, black bile, and yellow bile. The heat and flush associated with fever were believed to be a symptom of excess blood in the body. Leeches were one method used to draw out blood in an effort to restore health by restoring the fluid balance. (This is also why medieval sources refer to the practice of medicine as "leechcraft".)
  • The concept of the Blood Drain special attack may also derive from the fact that leeches are used for medicinal purposes in hospitals to reduce blood coagulation, relieve venous pressure from pooling blood and in reconstructive surgery to stimulate circulation in reattachment operations for organs with critical blood flow.
