Dr Orchid is a biologist with a PhD in plant toxicology and was privately educated in Switzerland until her expulsion after an incident involving daffodils resulted in a near-fatal poisoning.
After her expulsion from private school, Dr Orchid was educated at home by none other than Mrs White.
According to Hasbro’s press release, while researching her PhD in plant toxicology, Dr Orchid discovered a plant which possessed incredible medicinal properties. But she decided not to share this information with anyone, including her adoptive father.
Craig Wilkins, marketing director for Hasbro in the UK and Ireland, said: “It was a difficult decision to say goodbye to Mrs White – but after 70 years of suspicious activity, we decided that one of the characters had to go.
“Dr Orchid is a brilliant new character with a rich backstory and links to the Black fortune.
