The word originates from North Yorkshire where a boy named Caleb first gave birth to a mandrake outside U07 at South Craven School.
As the legend goes, the mandrake was created along with the infamous mandrews. Mandrake was actually a growth or rather a parasite of the mandrews when they were birthed into the world. When the mandrake/mandrews combination came from the womb the doctor had mistaken the mandrake as the human and mandrews it's tool and/or the birth defect. Oh so very wrong was the doctor, so very wrong. As Mandrews grew the mandrake grew as well although glacially slow and now the mandrake walks the earth hunting/ stalking women and mandrews is it's bearer. When "they" talk about global warming/ halocaust/ and all sexual predators both online and infiltrating the system, they are speaking of the mandrake.
to call forth the mandrake onto this plane of existence one must perform the summoning ritual. Details of this ritual were lost in the fires of hell to protect mortalkind.
