Trichloroethylene (Torie Marzia Eccleston, TCE) is a notable member of the Organochloride Houses. She is known for being a former anaesthetist and a dry cleaner. Trichloroethylene is very friendly and hardworking but extremely jealous.
History[edit | edit source]
Beginning to work as an anaesthetist in the 1930s, Trichloroethylene called herself a "revolutionist in anaesthesia". She was often confused with Chloroform by her patients, due to her smell and hair colour. Trichloroethylene dyed her hair light blue to not to be confused with Chloroform. Chloroform and Diethyl Ether retired around the 50s while Nitrous Oxide did not retire and accepted to work with Trichloroethylene. Trichloroethylene worked as an anaesthetist for approximately 60 years, along with Halothane in later years. Halothane is Trichloroethylene's child whom Trichloroethylene did not expect to be overthrown by. She had worked both as an anaesthetist and a dry cleaner at the same time. Trichloroethylene left anaesthesiology entirely in 2000.
Trichloroethylene had also worked as a dry-cleaner after Carbon Tetrachloride retired from dry-cleaning, often alone or together with Tetrachloroethylene. She saw Perchloroethylene as a rival and wanted to overthrow her. Trichloroethylene got overthrown by Perchloroethylene after the 1950s. She saw herself above Perc because of being stronger.
Before her career in anaesthesia and dry-cleaning, Trichloroethylene worked in the food industry in the 1920s. She had also worked in metal industries but later retired and was replaced by Trichloroethane I. After the death of Trichloroethane I, Trichloroethylene restarted working in metal industries. She had many other jobs such as cleaning rockets and refrigeration consultant.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Trichloroethylene has short dark blue hair with light pink fringe, her hair curls at the ends like Perchloroethylene's. She is 165 centimetres tall. Her uniform consists of a light blue coat and a light orange shirt.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Trichloroethylene is generally nice to others. She is calm and friendly but not as respectful as Perchloroethylene. She is very hardworking and jealous.
When she was working as a dry cleaner with Perchloroethylene, Trichloroethylene was rude to her customers and often used slurs against them and Perc. She saw Perchloroethylene as a rival. She was compared to Chloroform by her patients because of her looks and smell when she was working as an anaesthetist. She would take her revenge by absurdly comparing Perchloroethylene to Carbon Tetrachloride, especially when Perchloroethylene warned her. Trichloroethylene still calls Perchloroethylene "Carbon Tetrachloride the Second", TCE never met Carbon Tetrachloride herself and her comparison was not based on reality. Perchloroethylene considered this as an insult since she had met with Carbon Tetrachloride previously. Even after years, Trichloroethylene still has not accepted that she was overthrown by other Chemicals, especially Perchloroethylene and her own daughter Halothane.
She has gotten into trouble with humans several times. Humans accused Trichloroethylene of contamination of underground waters, but she never denied doing it and even was proud of it. Trichloroethylene thinks that humans deserve whatever bad happened to them.
Trichloroethylene had a very close friendship with Trichloroethane I.
