From long before the death of civilization’s light, the Force Pike was the greatest invention ever brought forth from the sands of Thyrsus. They were the progenitors of a weapon so feared, that it rivalled and surpassed their own legacy. Even to this day, many do not recall where the Force Pike came from - only that when it was activated - it was best to run away. Seeking to not only reclaim their lost heritage but to surpass it in an ironic twist of fate, the Golden Company began production on a blade that would assist them in that endeavour. Thus, the Xiphos was born.

In many respects, the Vibrosword was like any other Vibroweapon that populated the Galaxy. It housed an Ultrasonic Vibration Generator that caused the blade to vibrate at extreme speeds, which were capable of causing gaping wounds, or even dismemberment with a single strike. While this module was deadly enough on its own, the Thyrsians within the Sun Guard craved something much more devastating; and a weapon that was capable of withstanding the plasmatic edge of a lightsabre. To this end, a new steel alloy was created that would enhance the coruscating lethality found within simple vibroweapons, making it even deadlier than ever before.

With a depression of an activation stud, the edged-weapon would become encased in a coruscating web of plasmatic lightning. This deadly feature allowed the Xiphos to parry the strikes of a lightsabre and mimicked them in return. While it wasn’t capable of slicing through various materials like it’s plasmatic kin with any ease, the blade’s cut against flesh and armour were almost indistinguishable.

Thus, with the Xiphos in hand, the Sun Guard and their subordinate forces, would become a force to rival their ancestors for their fearsome traditions.
