Chewbacca fires a quarrel from his bowcaster at a mynock.

A quarrel was a metal projectile used in Wookiee bowcasters.[1] A quarrel, when fired from a bowcaster, was enveloped in plasma[2] blaster energy using the positive and negative polarizing orbs balanced on each end of a bowcaster.[3] The quarrel's momentum would be sped up by the magnetic field of the polarizing orbs once the bowcaster was fired.[1] This created a destructive bolt of energy that required the strength of a Wookiee to fire comfortably.[3]
