NZT is a mysterious drug that enhances human memory and intelligence, while acting as a nearly perfect antidepressant and anxiolytic. Dealers claim it unlocks 100% of the brain, referencing the “10%” myth. It increases intelligence to superhuman levels and results in perfect recall for the extent of its activity. The post-use crash and side effects are, however, commensurately bad, and it is this which initially prevents the FBI (and others) simply mass producing and employing the drug.
Eddie Morra uses NZT to gain control of businesses as a senator. Morra has developed a shot which removes the after-effects and negative consequences of NZT use. Brian Finch also uses NZT discreetly with the FBI and assists Eddie Morra along the way.
