The Pupil is an artifact appearing in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha v1.4007.
|“||Born in the 'Whirligig' anomaly, in areas of increased thermal activity. In addition to the strange name, it has other interesting properties. The artifact is capable of absorbing a huge amount of radiation. After finding it, there is a difficult choice - to sell it for a lot of money, or keep it.
