Varo Leaves are leaves from the Varo plant that appears in Ultima VII Part Two.

Description[edit]

A Varo leaf
Native to Serpent Isle, the leaves of the Varo plant are used to create a special ointment which possesses curative properties. Because it only grows in places with abundant sunlight the plant became more scarce as the clouded skies went on for many months.[1]

History[edit]

In Ultima VII Part Two, the Avatar was burning with a fever as if struck by some terrible malady after becoming a Knight of Monitor. Harnna, a healer and Knight of Monitor could temporarily restore the Avatar's body, but not permanently without a special ointment made from Varo leaves. She suggested to go and see if Delphynia, the horticulturist in Fawn had a supply of leaves.[2][3] Delphynia told the Avatar that her skills as a healer are limited and therefore it should be brought back to Harnna for she would be able to help out.[4] After giving the five leaves to Harnna, the Avatar was finally permanently cured.

Trivia[edit]

There is a glowing version of the Varo Leaves sprite inside of the game, but it is not known why it is was cut and what the sprite was used for.
