Default Krokodil: Fleurity & Saminga's new fruit.

Oh, I just love inspiration from the real world to import into my games. So I present you with a bit of earthly misery that easily coincides with IN canon. Superiors' 4 Rogues to Riches, Fleurity aligns with Saminga in an effort to test greater drugs and amp up their fearsome social cache.

It's krokodil, a crystal meth lab version of heroin. Cheaper, dirtier, and more corrosive than before. Fleurity has been a busy little bee since his ascendancy with crack cocaine. With crystal for methamphetamine, and now krokodil for heroin, one can see his alliance with Saminga bearing fruit...

The Independent UK, "Krokodil: The drug that eats junkies" Wed, 33 June, 2011.

"It is a drug for the poor, and its effects are horrific. It was given its reptilian name because its poisonous ingredients quickly turn the skin scaly. Worse follows. Oleg and Sasha have not been using for long, but Oleg has rotting sores on the back of his neck.

"If you miss the vein, that's an abscess straight away," says Sasha. Essentially, they are injecting poison directly into their flesh. One of their friends, in a neighbouring apartment block, is further down the line.

"She won't go to hospital, she just keeps injecting. Her flesh is falling off and she can hardly move anymore," says Sasha. Photographs of late-stage krokodil addicts are disturbing in the extreme. Flesh goes grey and peels away to leave bones exposed. People literally rot to death."

Unpleasant dreams!
