Methanol (Methyl Alcohol or Martha Albrecht) is a main character in Chemical Culture. She is the mother of Formaldehyde and Dimethyl Ether, Formic Acid's grandma. She is a successful entrepreneur in the wood industry. She is a kind person and calls everyone "sweetie".
Early life[edit | edit source]
Methanol is originally Egyptian. She moved to Ireland in the 17th century, this is the only record. She worked as a woodcutter for her whole life. She lived inside forests and sold wood to humans without any suspicion.
During her Ancient Egyptian life, Methanol worked as an embalmer.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Methanol is a kind and very welcoming person. She likes humans in a very unusual and creepy way. As an Ancient Egyptian, she loves cats. Methanol treats her daughter, Formaldehyde, with care, love and respect while she estranged her son Dimethyl Ether. Many Chemicals like her as a friend.
Out of the Alcohols, Methanol is the biggest hater of Ethanol. Methanol is a very civilised person, therefore her hate of Ethanol is not verbal or physical. She expresses her hate by doing whatever Ethanol is up to. In turn, Ethanol hates her.
