WANTED - LEAD
ALIASES - PLUMBUM
Lead is a grayish-black substance which is a metal at room temperature, making it a metal rather than a non-metal. A picture is tagged here of its general aesthetics. Lead got its symbol "Pb" from its name prior to lead which was Plumbum, meaning "liquid silver" in Latin.

Lead is important because it has provided us with safe transport for water via pipelines and systems underground. It has also been an extremely versatile metal, able to be molded and shaped into many, many things.
WARNING LABEL - LEAD IS EXTREMELY POISONOUS TO HUMANS AND SHOULD NOT BE INJESTED.
This Bohr diagram shows the amount of protons, neutrons, and electrons.
This is one of Lead's main uses. Lead is very commonly used as a water transport device. Many of these lead pipes make up underground water systems, which take water from point a to point b.
The individual who discovered lead himself was unknown, however it is assumed that it was discovered by the Romans many years ago. The Romans were actually the first to create underground waterways using lead pipes.
Known Assiciates - Oxygen: 2Pb(s) + O2(g) → 2PbO(s) [Lead Oxide]
