Asclepius is a Greek god who was the god of medicine, believed to have originated the Healing touch. He may be the ancestor of the surgeons who can use it.
Asclepius (Greek Ἀσκληπιός, transliterated Asklēpiós; Latin Aesculapius) is the god of medicine and healing in ancient Greek mythology. Asclepius represents the healing aspect of the medical arts, while his daughters Hygieia, Meditrina, Iaso, Aceso, Aglæa/Ægle and Panacea (literally, "all-healing") symbolize the forces of cleanliness, medicine and healing, respectively.
The caduceus is commonly used to represent the medical field, though Asclepius's Rod (a singe snake wrapped around a bone-like rod) is also used.
Asclepius' name is one letter off from the genus for milkweeds 'aslcepias' which were the flowers that carried the Rosalia Virus in Trauma Team. This flower, along the virus, holds the power of healing (to that of Asclepius) and death (Asclepias were sometimes used as poison for hunting).
