An anesthetic originally intended to knock out patients before surgery was developed by a small, independent company. It was a powerful drug, but after several cases of patients bleeding out on the table after taking it, the drug was banned from use. The company was sued, filed for bankruptcy shortly afterward, and was bought by [[RISE Technologies]]. However, it seemed that some patients experienced strange side effects weeks after taking the anesthetic. RISE spent millions of dollars on a team of scientists to research this drug, and they developed what we now call [[Devil's Coal|Devil’s Coal]].
Devil’s Coal is a synthetic drug that, when consumed, temporarily gives the user inhuman abilities. Everyone reacts to the drug differently, as it reacts based on the person’s genetic code.
Unfortunately, the drug has adverse effects on the mind and body. It is also highly addictive, and long term addicts become terrifying monsters called “Graves.” The government bought out [[RISE Technologies]] and now has complete control over the sale and use of Devil’s Coal. It is currently illegal, only given to officials and government military. Of course, with any illegal drug, it didn’t mean it was impossible to obtain. They’re worth a hefty price in the Black Market.
[[Free Wired]] is a freelance organization that believes in “The CODE” and is dedicated to protecting cyber freedom and stopping the government from becoming a totalitarian regime. The government has been coming more strict every day under its current legislature, and there have been more and more constraints being put on freedoms. They are planning to develop an isotope of Devil’s Coal that negates all of the adverse side effects, coined Project Devil’s Onyx, that will leave them unstoppable in achieving their goals.
*“The Code” refers to a program code that is believed to hold the secret to being “free wired,” or free from all constraints and bondage of law, technology, and being. It is an ecstatic state of freedom.
