Rivina humilis is a species of flowering plant in the family Petiveriaceae. It was formerly placed in the pokeweed family, Phytolaccaceae. It can be found in the southern United States, the Caribbean, Central America, and tropical South America. Common names include pigeonberry, rougeplant, baby peppers, bloodberry, and coralito. The specific epithet means "dwarfish" or "lowly" in Latin, referring to the plant's short stature.
The name likely comes from Travis' love of the anime Pure White Lover Bizarre Jelly, as the show's main character names are Strawberry, Blueberry, and Cranberry, and may also metaphorically refer to Travis' starting days as a hitman, since winning the Blood Berry, started Travis's career. According to supplemental materials, it is a beam katana created by Wolf Vann, the same developer of the Cross Sword used by Henry Cooldown.
Shade-loving and long-lived, Rivina humilis (Bloodberry) is an evergreen, herbaceous to woody perennial to small shrub noted for its decorative fruit and flowers. Blooming nearly all year-round, tiny delicate blossoms, white to pink, are borne in terminal or axillary clusters. They are visited by pollinators and give way to clusters of bright red berries, almost translucent, that are devoured by many kinds of birds. Bloodberry can be quite eye-catching with its pale flowers and scarlet berries displayed simultaneously. The erect stems are clothed with long-petioled, elliptic to ovate leaves, up to 5 in. long (12 cm). Native to the moist tropical and sub-tropical Americas, Bloodberry can be found in forests, thickets, on roadsides, and in disturbed areas. It grows beneath trees and shrubs, in low-light areas where grass often refuses to grow. Hardy, drought-tolerant, low-maintenance, attractive to birds and bees, and providing year-round interest, Bloodberry is suitable for foundation plantings, or as a small specimen plant. Fast-growing, it is also valued as a shade-tolerant groundcover. It is also grown as a houseplant and in greenhouses. The red fruits have been used for cosmetics, hence the name Rouge Plant.
Every day, a lot of people across the globe sustain cuts and wounds from different activities and sometimes these wounds turn to be chronic due to infections and several other reasons. Though, the tea from the leaves of the Bloodberry has been found effective in speeding up the healing process of wounds, cuts and bruises and it helps in preventing infections that would lead to additional complications. If you have sustained a cut, all you need to do is make some tea from Bloodberry leaves and uses it to wash he wound three times a day until healing occurs.
Skin infections are very common since it is always exposed to different stimuli that predispose it to infections. Occasionally treating these infections is a chill wind but with the Bloodberry tea you can easily treat your skin. All you need to do is to prepare tea from the leaves of this plant and use it to bath.
There are several causes of infertility in women and Bloodberry can correct infertility caused by obstruction of the fallopian tubes. Decoction from Bloodberry helps in clearing the fallopian tubes enhancing the easy fertilization of the ovum.
Add the blood oranges slices to a blender or food processor with frozen berries, leafy greens like kale or spinach, a bit of orange juice, a tablespoon or two of chia seeds to thicken, and a few ice cubes.

Round and fleshy pink in appearance, it is a mysterious fruit that grows on trees found in the most gruesome of places, the fruit masterfully mimics the taste of actual flesh and blood for the nutrients that its tree lives off is literally corpses. Favored by carnivorous creatures races as easy rations especially on a battlefield, blood berry trees can be found in old battlefields, cemeteries, and about any necromancer's laboratory. Extracting the juice and mixing it with pure alcohol makes a blood red wine called Earthblood (delicacy among those who drink actual blood.)
Nauseous Reaction (aka Blood Berry Poisoning):The first time an omnivorous creature unused to tasting raw flesh and blood tastes a blood berry they must make a Fortitude Save of 18 or more or become nauseous for 1d4 minutes. If that creature fails the save by 5 or more points, it uncontrollably vomits and becomes ill for 1d4 hours instead.
For this reason, assassins favor properly cooking the blood berry to resemble actual meat(making the taste far worse) and serving it to its victim(s). The victim(s) would no doubt be taken by surprise and unable to defend themselves as the assassin kills them.
For flesh-eating PCs:If one or more of the PCs started as or have become flesh or blood eating creatures, such as vampires or feral Drow, blood berries provide a genuine substitute to flesh. If you are using the undead hunger rules from Libris Mortis, blood berries are equal to blood, constitution gained by blood draining, or flesh in terms of sustenance. This allows PCs that would otherwise be forced to be evil by their hunger to be neutral or even good... assuming that they have an adequate supply of blood berries.
What really suprised me was that the iodine came right out, completely! Normally that is a very hard stain to remove, so I am suprised. In addition, you can see that both the grass stain and blood stain mainly came out (hard to tell in picture, but there is still some faint remnants of those stains). Further, the other stains are all still visible, with both the red wine and grape juice having a signature bluish stain left.
Next, I pretreated all the stains on the Stain Rx shirts with the product, as instructed. Therefore, I wet each stain with cold water and then treated it with some Stain Rx. For a couple of the stains, including mustard, grass, blood, and balsalmic vinegar I also gently massaged the stain, since the instructions suggested this (I used an old toothbrush for this purpose).
In addition, after treatment with the product, but before I even washed them, the blood and grass stains were completely gone and the berry stains had lightened significantly. The berry stains also visibly reduced as I dripped it on, but where I had really ground in the berry there was still a mark on the fabric.
As I stated before, once I washed the shirts both the red wine and grape juice haze stains were gone, and most of the strawberry and blackberry residual stains. To be fair, I closely examined the areas of the white shirt, and could still see a bit of red and purple, but it was very light and if I wasn't looking for it, or it was a colored shirt, I probably would not have noticed it at all. (After additional washings even this was gone.) Overall, I was very pleased with how Stain Rx removed both the wine and berry stains, and would recommend it for this purpose. (Update: Another reader shared a review of how well it worked for removing her berry stains too!)
Overall, I was very impressed with Stain Rx with regard to a couple of very hard stains to remove. I do believe it will be included in my arsenal of stain removers for removing wine, iodine, berries and blood from now on. I do hope they come out with a scent free version though, since the odor was a bit strong for my taste!
Bloodberry is a Consumable item in Salt and Sacrifice. Consumables are known as pershiable items with limited uses, usually consumed to gain temporary buffs and benefits or replenish any lost stats. These items will stack up in the inventory. Once used, players will gain its effects and the item may deplete. Items classified as consumables include food items, bombs and potions. These items are usually obtained from either enemy drops, picked up from bushes and shrubs, found in various locations in chests when looting, or obtained from other NPCs. Replenish health and focus, consumables and materials at an Obelisk.
Bloodberry also known as Butterfly Sage, Varronia globosa, is a naturalistic small shrub with coarse foliage. It produces clusters of small white blooms that is great for attracting pollinators including Cassius Blue and Mallow-Scrub Hairstreak butterflies. The flowering is followed by clusters of small bright red berries that the birds enjoy. This is a plant from south Florida, but is adaptable to gardens further north in sheltered locations. This is great plant for people wanting to attract pollinators and birds. It is listed as Endangered by the State of Florida. Besides planting it in a sheltered location, give it full to partial sun and good drainage. It is drought tolerant and will quickly grow to an irregular form unless pruned to shape.
