The neuronic whip was a particularly cruel creation of TholCorp, the purpose of which was to send powerful electrical charges into a being's nerve cells, causing a great deal of pain and trauma.

It was a long, flexible cable, connected to a power pack in a handle that delivered a stunning jolt on contact. Unlike a typical leather whip, the heavy cable could crack bones and break flesh, although death was an extremely unlikely outcome.[2]

Neuronic whips were very popular amongst slavers.[2] The Mytaranor Slaving Council used them extensively after their leader Talas Piran found a cache of them in a hidden compartment of the recently acquired ship the Vanquisher.[3] Imperial Dungeoneers also used neuronic whips.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

Neuronic whips were originally used extensively in the Foundation and Empire series, two series of science-fiction novels written by Isaac Asimov from which many Star Wars concepts were taken.
