Description: The dagger thorn was a long, white, pointed melee weapon that was held in the hand. The wielder attacked foes in close range by attempting to connect with the weapon's tip, which oozed a poisonous sap that was capable of killing a Human-sized target with a single scratch.
During the Galactic Civil War, a member of the Ultaarian Greenback species wielded a dagger thorn in each of his four hands during the Big Game, a gladiatorial competition on a space station known as the Wheel. When the warrior faced the Human smuggler Han Solo in the first round of fighting, Solo hurled a power shield at the hulking contestant's feet. The four-armed fighter tripped and fell upon one of his dagger thorns, and although the poison took a moment to affect him, he died in mid-strike.
