* AddledAddict: Bruce the Scientist, the police lab technician shows signs of several personal issues relating substance abuse and dependency. His body constantly shakes, he screams, he brews extra-caffeinated coffee because regular coffee isn't strong enough for him, and the presence of a federal agent makes him paranoid and overly agitated, leading to him stashing various unnamed drugs and pills lying around on his lab table in a panic.

Jack Caine (Lundgren) is a Houston cop who is determined to wipe out the White Boys, a gang of white-collar drug dealers who killed his partner while Caine was waylaid stopping a convenience store robbery. Little does he know that there is a new drug dealer in town, one who preys on heroin addicts in order to get his own drug of trade - made from the endorphins extracted from heroin users. But this guy's home turf isn't in Houston. It isn't even on planet Earth...

Added DiffLines:

* KarmaHoudini: Victor Manning, getting out of Dodge after his one scene and sending a picture to Caine in order to gloat about it. On the other hand, the complete slaughter of his gang back on Houston is going to make things harder for him in the long run...

Added DiffLines:

* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: Caine already lives by this code, but Larry grows into it once he finds out that the government has no problem with letting the alien kill people (and possibly bring along an AlienInvasion to turn Earth into a space-meth lab) as long as they can get a deal out of it.
