Why would the wish granter be alien? The C Conciousness pretty much states its a way to control people trying to uncover the zones secrets

Nope, the brainscorcher is used to control and reprogram those getting too close.

The wish granter is the "annoyance" to the monolith that keeps luring people to the centre. Why they don't just destroy it who knows...

Actually the C Conciousness states one of the devices is known as the brain scorcher, they also say they take control of stalkers who wish to fulfill a desire. You realise the its the power for the wish granter you're destroying near the end of SoC as shown by the hologram?

The wish granter is the monolith. The monolith cult is described in SoC as worshipping an alien crystal that can grant wishes. Why would they destroy their "god"? The monolith cult also acts as the C Conciousness's army, protecting the labs and eliminating threats. These greatly suggest the wish granter is another man made diversion. Otherwise it doesn't make sense for the wish granter to prevent and eliminate stalkers from discovering the real reason for the zone (exactly what the C Conciousness is also trying to stop).

Didnt fang ditch strelok too? i also noticed, Strelok has scars on his face, maybe for revenge, he killed fang?

Nah. Wasn't Strelok.

Playing through a supermod which included OL 2.2 (So I'm not entirely certain that this is vanilla lore, but it seemed legit enough), I took a look at the PDA after entering Lab X16, in the search for Ghost. There was a fair amount of text from an apparent log Ghost left behind for Strelok. In it included a picture of Ghost with 2 guys at his side facing him, faces unseen, presumably Fang & Strelok.

Ghost indicates that they were ambushed by a trio of Bandits near the Army Warehouses. While two of the Bandits were quickly taken down by Ghost and Fang, Bandit #3 hid elsewhere, ending Fang with a single headshot from the business end of a Vintorez. As Ghost hightailed it, he would note what appearances his would-be assassin became apparent; that he wasn't a Bandit at all but a Merc using the other two as bait, that he had Fang and Ghost's descriptions, and a significant scar across one eye

This pretty much confirms that Scar himself killed Fang. All that is unclear is when - Fang was still alive during the events of CS, and Scar obviously didn't reach Fang during the game or else we'd know it. This opens up two possible theories

Theory #1 - Noting his suspicious absence from the ending of CS, Scar possibly survived the end events of CS and caught up to Fang at some point before or very shortly into SoC. How hard would it be for Fang to survive yet another blowout, after all? There's no indication of how many it would take to kill him. Then again, the very idea that he can survive them at all is almost ludicrously unexplainable......

Theory #2 - As for having killed Fang in the first place, there's also the question of why. With CS over, and Clear Sky itself wiped out, what would be Scar's motivation for doing so? Well, ok, to prevent more blowouts, but Strelok's out of the picture now. He could have been tying up loose ends possibly, but there's another possibility - that he got captured and reprogrammed just like everyone else by the C-Con to do a specific task. Rather, to continue his specific task with some additions: "Kill Ghost & Fang". It may not be that farfetched. Strelok had his crew for certain, and having reached NPP together the first time around, the C-Con must have known that Strelok wasn't alone (Doc staying in the background probably saved his ass). Scar could have been wired like Strelok and redeposited in the zone as well, brainwiped of any knowledge of the C-Con but without total amnesia to slow him down. Hence, he tracked down and set up Fang & Ghost, and got one of them. Ghost perished in X16 mere days before Strelok found him.

But then there's nothing else for Scar to do - Strelok, although a wanted man, is missing and unknown to everyone -even himself- but Doctor, and even after the truth comes out, no one else knows but the C-Con. The C-Con itself had no need to kill Strelok with him then (temporarily) under their control to do its bidding. The mistake made with Strelok was obvious - he somehow ended up with Scar's PDA, fooling him into "hunting himself". This provides a possible explanation as to how Scar could have been planted with info and descriptions on Fang & Ghost. It also allows for the possibility that, whether dead or alive, Scar pretty much finished his mission in a sense, leaving him near irrelevant & MIA in SoC.
