Mandrake is a poisonous plant whose humanoid-shaped roots have many μαγείαal properties. The necropolis of Fen Carn is said to have an unusually large "population" of female mandrake plants.

Encyclopaedia Maxima Mundi entry[]

Mandrake (also called divergoton) : species of plant in the Solanaceae family including herbaceous, stemless tap roots bearing a certain resemblance to the human form; rosette leaves.
Mandrake, autumnalis or officinialis, is cultivated in small quantities in Vicovaro, Rowan and Ymlac, and is rarely found in growing wild. It initially produces green berries which ripen to yellow, and which are eaten with vinegar and pepper; it's leaves are used in the dried form. The mandrake root, these days appreciated in medicine and pharmaceuticals, earlier played an important role in superstitions, especially among the Nordlings: the roots were sculpted into small human-shaped dolls (alrunes) which were kept as powerful talismans in homes. They were thought to protect against illness and to bring luck, ensuring fertility to the women and easy births. They were dressed in tiny oufits which were changed with each full moon. Mandrake roots, for which the price could reach seventy florins, were also used in commerce. The same for bryonia roots (sic). According to the superstitions, mandrake root was used in spells and magic philtres, but also for poisons. This belief resurfaced during the witch hunts. Notably, the unlawful use of mandrake was established during the trial of Lukrezia Vigo (sic).
The legendary Filippa Alhard (sic) likely also used mandrake to fashion poisons.
