A three-pronged, rod-like weapon, also known as a "fire stick." The Goa'uld device is slightly under half a meter long, and is capable of delivering a powerful jolt of energy when in contact with an individual. Its primary use is torture. When the weapon is in use, the eyes and mouth of the individual being tortured ignites with bright light, reflective of the excruciating pain being inflicted.
