An Energy Beamer is the most widely used weapon in the universe of D’Olex. Commonly known as a “Beamer”, Warriors from both the Alliance of Planets and the Valkers use this handheld weapon. Beamers come in a variety of makes and models. The standard to heavy units require both hands to wield them, whereas the small and compact models can be fired using one hand and be carried on a weapons belt.
“You are holding an Energy Beamer, Zach Salt. This one is the EB 7-30. A nice piece of hardware, durable and lightweight. It looks similar to this latest model, the EB 9-75. However, on this Beamer the casing is heavier and in the right hands a gunner can jerk the weapon sideways causing the constant beam of energy to wrap around corners. Simply gripping the weapon makes it active, and it is your thoughts it interprets. Just think to shoot.”
All makes of this weapon are blocky, long and rectangular. An Energy Beamer is held toward the front, at the very tip, whereby the Warrior’s forearm rests atop its length. The grip rises from the front of the weapon to form an enclosed box. This grip is without a trigger. The standard and large models can be steadied with the Warrior’s free hand, gently holding the under-casing. The front of an Energy Beamer glows purple. It has no nozzle, and its barrel is the long, upright rectangle shape of the weapon itself.

An Energy Beamer fires purple energy. The laser travels at multiples of the speed of light, making it impossible to evade. Most Beamers have two modes of fire, single burst or a continuous beam that can be focused on a single target or drawn across many.
“A brilliant purple laser streaked across the range in a translucent glow. The weapon gave a short surging drone. The beam was solid, tracing a visible path from weapon to target in an instant, before disappearing a heartbeat later. Zach smirked, repositioned the gun, aimed, and fired, again sending the command in thought. Another drone and another stark purple laser blasted forth.”
Energy and light in the universe of D’Olex can be manipulated. This means weapons and force fields can be programmed to target or ignore certain genetic material. A force field may allow certain things to pass through unhindered, like those of a specific race (e.g. Valkers). The same is true for an Energy Beamer. Models like the EB 7-30 can be programmed to ignore certain DNA, which allows Warriors to discharge their weapons indiscriminately across a battlefield without fear of friendly fire.
