Verruca Patch
"Oh it that bad?"
Other names: Plantar Warts, Foot Warts
Bioform: N/A
Native zone: N/A
Residence: The Hospital
Occupation: Patient
A single-minded collection of sapient, self-aware verrucas on the underside of a human foot. It's given Exam Room III, once the Oozing Skull moves in with the Crooked Spine.

Description Edit

Verruca Patch is a large human foot with numerous warts on its underside. The warts seem to have a single collective mind and most of them have faces (only consisting of a pair of eyes). The biggest wart is the only one with hair, albeit only a single thread. "The warts pop in and out as it speaks, like bubbles on the surface of a rancid pond."

Verruca Patch came to the Hospital because he suffers from malnourishment, which caused baldness and a short stature. Verruca is sensitive about his height. It later uses an "implant" which is actually another one of his warts replacing that single hair follicle, probably having lost all of his hair. When Fern tries to help him by giving him the Happie Wort she bough from the Crooked Spine, he grows so tall that he breaks the ceiling. Now his body no longer resembles a foot, but a fleshy stalk of warts that could easily be climbed. "Any inquiry towards the warts is met with only little, soft, satisfied sighs".

First Appearance Edit

In Awful Hospital as a patient.
