245 Trioxin, it's called. It was to
kinda spray on marijuana or some-
thing. And the Darrow Chemical
Company was trying to develop it
for the Army. And they told the
guy who made the movie that
if he told the true story,
they'd just sue his ass off. So
he changed all the facts around.
Listen, there's a bunch of
Gee... And now you made
Trioxin is a yellowish, whitish, or greenish vapor (caused by sulfurism) which makes your skin feel as though it is
burning. It has been known to be typically stored under pressure in large steel drums. It was originally developed
by the Darrow Chemical Company for the United States military as an herbicide to destroy marijuana plants.
However, the Army was quite surprised when the gas also restored function to the nervous systems of cadavers, dismembered body parts, and even dead animals and insects. Moreover, Trioxin appears to be toxic,
and a single exposure to a concentrated amount can both kill a person and revive them again.
Zombies created by exposure to Trioxin retain all of their former intelligence and abilities, including the abilities
to speak, run, and reason. Human behaviors and emotions fade as the brain shuts down leaving only the basic
instinct to feed. Like normal cadavers, they suffer the effects of rigor mortis. They also crave human
brains. One zombie explained that brains are required to stave off the pain of decomposition. Unlike other
zombies, the only known ways to destroy zombies created by Trioxin are by incineration or electrocution. Attempts to destroy the brain or even completely dismember a Trioxin zombie have invariably failed.
Though a volatile gas, 245 Trioxin is fairly stable and can withstand temperatures in the thousands of degrees. Attempts to cremate Trioxin-spawned zombies typically release Trioxin gas into the air, where it may contaminate
rainclouds. The resulting rainfall is irritating to the skin which often leads victims to assume that it is acid rain
when it fact the diluted Trioxin is causing their nerve ends to fire randomly. This "Trioxin shower" is no longer concentrated enough to kill a human but if the contaminated rainwater falls on a location housing corpses, such as
a cemetery, it can potentially reanimate every corpse interred there.
