Nicothiotal

From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

"I know how to use nicothiotal--which is why I'd never use it in a training exercise."
— Commander Svenson to Veta Lopis, after being accused of poisoning Olivia-G291.

Nicothiotal, abbreviated as NTL, is a toxic central nervous system depressant considered to be a quick-acting form of Babble Juice. When imbibed, its outward effects resemble intoxication. Overdosing on the agent can leave the subject in a state of permanent hallucination whereby their mind becomes unable to separate the present reality from memory or dreams.[1] Nicothiotal is a favorite of the Office of Naval Intelligence and other intelligence services because of its short onset of action and because someone poisoned with it can simply appear to be inebriated.

Trivia[edit]

  • Thiotal is the name of a drug used in veterinary medicine to anesthetize animals. Its active ingredient is sodium thiopental, a short-acting barbiturate. The prefix "nico", implies some sort of nicotinamide is also involved in the compound's structure.
