Victoria is right.

As soon as she grabs the device it begins seeping pink fog all over her hand, doing its best to dissolve her flesh off in a rather horrific fashion. To make matters worse the whole cloud seems to implode upon itself, lashing inwards in an attempt to completely smother her before she can get the little metal ball into the bucket.

Should she manage to get the ball into the water there will come a rather distinct fizzling, popping sound and the malevolent will directing the fog will abruptly cease. The fog won't vanish, but it won't be trying to eat people either.

If the orb doesn't make it into the bucket...

Well...

Victoria might be in trouble in that case. Her heritage will help for sure. But still...
