The article should be used for murder missions that require discretion and complete removal of evidence.The chosen targets must be eliminated by stabbing the heart, without any degree of error. The article should only be used by the personnel chosen according to the specifications of Document A-04. Once removed from its containment, the personnel in use has a time limit of 24 hours before the activation of its side effect.


The item must be kept in an iron box with automatic lock when not in use. The key of the lock should be changed every two days. The box is monitored with electronic surveillance cameras closed. The storage room of the article is monitored by two guards with night shifts. The article should not be drawn more than for missions and experimentation.

The item is a short-range knife with a short needle-tipped blade and a handle made of engraved bone terminated at one end in the shape of a skull. The blade maintains its edge regardless of constant use. When the article is used to cause a mortal wound in a vital organ, especially the heart, it will activate its anomalus effect. The body of every person who is mortally wounded will burn instantly in a phenomenon similar to spontaneous combustion until it becomes enveloped in distinctive black flames until it becomes a substance similar to ash, including any inorganic material that is worn (clothing, shoes, watches, prosthesis, etc.) in an average time of 45 seconds to a full minute.

The second effect of the blade occurs if it is not used for the removal of targets in more than 24 hours. The last person who touched the blade and did not use it to kill another individual will enter a state of advanced cellular degeneration, characterized by an accelerated necrosis that will end the user's life in less than an hour. I do not know if you need to touch the blade so that the side effect takes effect and it will continue to be generated regardless of the range of distance between the knife and its last user. The use of protective suits of any kind does not prevent the activation of the secondary effect. Once the person has killed a target with the knife, it will not suffer the side effect and it will not manifest until someone else touches it and restarts the cycle.


The article was found during an assault on a residence by members of the insurgency in support of the region's cartels in exchange for monetary benefits in the profits from the distribution of drugs in the area. After the assault and when inspecting the residence, he found the article and it was discovered that it belonged to Joaquin García Hernández, known drug trafficker and presumed former member of the Los Ocultos cartel. No other anomaly was found.
