Sorin has been alive too long, and now juicing is the only way he doesn't feel dead.
Sorin was a kid when the rifts broke through. He has small memories of a world where radiation didn’t seep into every pore and when his family was alive. They’re all gone now, and it has been far too long living without any spark in his life. He had tried some lighter drugs early on, when his wife and daughter got killed, but they didn’t kill the pain. He ran with the lower crowds after that, and found that there were some things that did kill the pain – and everything else.
