Usutu mixes tambotie tree roots and hyena dung.
|First mentioned:||One of Us, One of Them|
|Current status:||Eaten by Matt and Hiro|
Usutu prepares some food for Hiro and Ando and gives it to them in a bowl. He explains that the recipe for it has been in his family for thousands of years, for use with spirit walking. Hiro eats a bit, visibly disgusted by it but unaware it is the food that Usutu is describing. Ando does not eat any at all. Hiro asks what he is supposed to do next. He says the food is made from the roots of a tambotie tree and hyena dung and tells Hiro to wait. In a few moments, Hiro's eyes turn white and he falls onto his back. Ando tries to revive him, but to no avail.
When Hiro's precognitive trance is momentarily disturbed, Usutu and Ando heat the paste such that it gives off fumes. Usutu warns Ando not to take in the fumes, and then he holds the bowl up to Hiro. Hiro smells the fumes and resumes his trance.
- In a question and answer session, writers Joe Pokaski and Aron Coleite said that Usutu's paste is less like the genetic modification formula and more like Isaac's heroin. They also liken it to Dumbo's magic feather.
Usutu makes the paste of dung and tambotie roots.
Ando doesn't try the recipe.
When Hiro eats the concoction...
...he goes into a precognitive trance.
