Shuriken

Shuriken are bladed thrown weapons most common in the carbonedge form kasathas favor. However, these weapons are versatile and come in various forms for improved cutting power or specialized use. Additionally, the size of shuriken makes them easy to hide and carry. They are ideal for hit-and-run attacks and situations where it might not be prudent to retrieve a thrown weapon.
  • Dynamo Shuriken: Using the best in miniaturized machine and electronic technology, a dynamo shuriken can use the power it generates when thrown to deliver an electric pulse to a target or to return to its thrower.
  • Flash Shuriken: The friction of passing air and target impact activates a thrown flash shuriken so that the weapon delivers burn injuries and a potentially blinding flare.
  • Grooved Shuriken: Fine channels crisscross the surface of a grooved shuriken. When an injectable substance is applied to the shuriken, it gathers in these channels and surface tension holds it in place. The grooves allow injection delivery without a specialized mechanism. Each shuriken holds a single dose of a drug, poison, or medicinal.
  • Microserrated Shuriken: This is like the carbonedge variety, but has microserrated edges to slice into targets better.
  • Singing Shuriken: Designed by lashunta hunting specialists using the same acoustic principles as the singing disk, the singing shuriken generates a painful high-pitched whine when thrown and can befuddle a target with a piercing impact that disturbs the inner ear.
  • Ultraserrated Shuriken: Small but deadly, an ultraserrated shuriken has molecular-level serrations that enhance slashing.
