- "What wrist-casters you can find today are usually in unusable condition. The crossbow mechanism is warped or the band has torn; it is obvious that these little weapons saw a lot of use in years gone by."
Wrist-casters were self-defense weapons that were used in the period of time some four thousand years prior to the Battle of Yavin. The wrist-caster was a miniature crossbow mounted on an arm band that was secured around an individual's wrist. During the years surrounding the Great Sith War, Drolan Plasteel manufactured the QuickShot wrist-caster.
