Chronic Super Flow Activation Disease, CS-FAD or simply Zone Addiction is a brain disorder that occurs when a person is exposed to dangerously high levels of hormones such as adrenaline and after time, become almost dependant on it's presence to maintain a sense of normalcy in their lives.  Zone Addiction is vastly more common in super soldiers due to their ability to generate these levels of hormones to aid their created purpose of heavy shock troops.

Zone Addiction isn't limited solely to super soldiers, however it is far more common due to the aforementioned reason.  Zone Addiction has been reported in normal soldiers who rely heavily on stim packs to perform combat ops.  Zone Addiction in super soldiers is of a vastly superior concern however, as super soldiers have additional hormonal enhancements and augmentations done to their body that make them a truly destructive force in their own right.  Typically, Zone addicted soldiers die as their heart and endocrine system can't take the added stress but super soldiers have their systems enhanced to cope with that stress, making that a non-issue for them as most of the time the super soldier has reached the point where they can activate their glands at will, thus allowing them to shut off the systems when their body begins to reject the extra hormones.

The main problem with Zone addicted super soldiers is that since they most often don't succumb to their extra abuses to their system, their minds rapidly degenerate into a state of chaos where they lose their ability to tell friend from foe and lose all allegiances, making them rogue elements.  There is a task force on Dragonia dedicated to hunting down these rogue super soldiers before they can harm themselves or others.  There is very little chance of said soldiers gaining command of followers as they are generally too far gone to think straight.

Symptoms of Zone Addiction

  • Hypertension
  • Hyper aggression
  • Glass Eyes
  • Thousand-Yard stare
  • Social regression
  • Acute depression
  • Irrational behavior
  • Mental degredation
  • Hysteria
  • Chaotic rambling

Despite the increasingly bad symptoms of Zone Addiction, there are a number of programs that help people cope with Zone Addiction that are non-invasive including oral supplements and medicine tabs.  Since being under high levels of adrenaline for long periods of time has the potential for mental damage, it isn't wholly uncommon for those who recover from Zone Addiction to have symptoms resembling that of PTSD.
