Methoxazepam is a benzodiazepine that was originally used as an anesthetic for surgical practice. It was first developed by a small, independent research lab in 2173. Unfortunately, the drug gave users adverse and for some, fatal effects, that ultimately lead to the lab's shutdown and the drug being banned from use. Strangely enough, some patients that were given the drug experienced supernatural side effects that were not formally documented by the hospital staff.
RISE Technologies took over and bought the lab soon after, obtaining all the data and research on Methoxazepam. After being taken over by the Central Government, RISE began vigorous research on Methoxazepam to create a synthetic isotope that would proliferate the drug's supernatural side effects while reducing the adverse health side effects. The result is what we now call "Devil's Coal."
The Nickname "Devil's Coal"
The commonly dubbed nickname of Methoxazepam is Devil's Coal. The "coal" is a reference to the powdery/smudgey texture and the black color, while the term "devil" was given due to the ugly side effects after being "wired" and its highly addictive properties.
The name was not popularly adopted until the drug began to sell in the Black Market.
Devil's Coal is taken for the temporary supernatural abiltiies it gives its user. These abilities are based entirely on the user's genetic code, or DNA sequence, so each individual experiences different abilities after taking Devil's Coal.

Adverse Side Effects
Temporary side effects after a one time use include dizziness, nausea, inability to concentrate, possible puking, fatigue, and muscle weakness.
Those who have developed a severe addiction turn into ugly creatures called Graves. Graves roam the darkness and have an uncanny ability of smelling Devil's Coal and the blood of the immune.
Permanent side effects from a regular, prolonged use include loss of eyesight, loss of muscle nerves, difficulty breathing, and possibly even heart failure.
Devil's Onyx is RISE Technologies' ultimate goal - a pure form of Devil's Coal that does not harm the user in any way. Though scientists at RISE have been vigorously working at perfecting the drug, the formula for creating Devil's Onyx has yet to be discovered... if it even exists.
