Chewbacca Bowcaster TFA

Chewbacca's bowcaster with its alternating polarizers balanced on each end of the weapon.

An alternating polarizer, or polarizing orb,[1] was a type of magnetic device used to energize metal blaster projectiles known as quarrels in bowcasters.[2] A bowcaster contained a positive-default and negative-default alternating polarizer, along with a conductive bowstring,[2] balanced on each end of the weapon.[1] The polarizing orbs would charge a quarrel and envelope it in plasma[3] energy before firing a destructive blaster bolt from the barrel of the bowcaster,[2] boosting its power with its magnetic field.[1]
