A Poisoner is, as titled, a person who uses poison in their attacks against people.
There are numerous motivations behind the usage of poison, but it usually is a means of killing victims whilst avoiding being immediately suspected. Poisoners have some similarities with bombers: they plan meticulously, nurse long grudges, and retaliate far out of proportion to any injury that they feel they have received.
Types of Poisoners
- True Believers - They are political terrorists or religious cult members.

- Pranksters - They are teenagers who do it as a practical joke and usually don't mean any harm.
