in Chapter 8 - Legend of the black iceberg

Nika mentions the coagulant she used to stop the bleeding. I used a real life medicine - Celox - as a reference. It is based on chitosan - natural polymer extracted from crustacean shells such as shrimp, crabs and crayfish (remember the ones Tim boied? there are lots of them on the islands of the world of "Gifts..."). Coagulant based on chitosan can be put right into the wound, it rapidly clots blood, has antibacterial properties, and you don't have to remove it afterwards: it will be naturally metabolized by the patient's body.
