UTES Interstitial: Vic

Before Caine discovered the truth about their family, before they joined Zero Zero with Jet, Zero Zero was nothing but a faint memory. And its members were living their own lives.

Years in the past... Vic Vass, Silver Gallo, and Nova are the terrors of Metropolis West, members of the most wanted gang in the entire city. The Berserkers are thick as thieves, closer than family. But today, they're chasing down one of their own whose decided to bail. 'Cause no one leaves the Berserkers... at least, not alive. Featuring console cowboys, extremely strong magnets, and dyeing your hair.

Trigger warnings: excessive violence (physical violence and burning), sadism, gaslighting/abuse, police, medical procedures, and suicidal ideation. Low oscillating frequencies at 26:36 - 28:01 and a high pitched noise at 28:24.
