->It is a realm of a thousand smokes, each fouler than the rest; of clanking gears that relentlessly grind up spirits and use them for fodder; of row upon row of [[WrongSideOfTheTracks rotting tenements and firetrap slums]]. [[NightmarishFactory Countless factories]] belch smog into the already-filth air. [[PollutedWasteland Strip-mines ravage the muddy, eroded ground]], and a few architectural abortions of office buildings provide headquarters for the [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Banes]] and [[ControlFreak Weaver-spirits]] that oversee the whole affair. [[DownInTheDumps Piles of debris and garbage]] make travel through the cracked alleys a slow and sometimes hazardous affair. Visitors who've survived the trip have claimed that the air is so filthy that one cannot determine whether its day or night, and that one can quickly be covered in soot simply by standing still. The emanations that exist ([[LivingIsMoreThanSurviving "live" is too noble a term]]) in the Scar are wan, pale phantoms that exist only to run the machines of the factories, to make sure that one spirit after another is broken down for its [[{{Mana}} Gnosis]]. Their "lives" are a mockery of industry: 80-hour work weeks, appalling working conditions, no benefits or overtime, and no future. Punishments for "dereliction of duty" range from beatings to loss of their meager energy wage [[note]]most of which goes into the maws of the slumlords anyway[[/note]] to outright termination. These creatures work to exist and exist to work.

->One and a half million people lived in Juárez, most of them in indescribable poverty made all the more difficult for being endured in the shadow of El Paso's wealth. Here were smugglers of drugs and people. Here were prostitutes barely into puberty, and others who would never live long enough to see puberty. Here were the ''[[NightmarishFactory maquiladoras]],'' the huge electrical assembly plants that provided microwaves and hair dryers to the First World, the prices kept down by paying the workers $10 a day and denying them legal protection or union representation. Outside the perimeter fences stretched row upon row of crate houses, the ''[[IndustrialGhetto colonias populares]]'' without sanitation, running water, electricity or paved roads, home to the men and women who labored in the ''maquiladoras,'' the more fortunate of whom were picked up each morning by the red-and-green buses once used to ferry American children to and from school, while the rest were forced to endure the perilous early-morning walk through Sitio Colosio Valle or some similarly malodorous area. Beyond their homes lay the municipal dumps, where the scavengers made more than the factory workers. Here were the [[RedlightDistrict brothels of Mariscal and the shooting galleries of Ugarte Street]], where young men and women injected themselves with Mexican tar, a cheap heroin derivative from Sinaloa, leaving a trail of bloodied needles in their wake. here were eight hundred gangs, each roaming the streets of the city with relative impunity, their members beyond a law that was powerless to act against them - or more properly, [[DirtyCop too corrupt to care]].
