The Pale Spear was a vibro-lance passed down from one gamorrean warlord of Clan Murtog to the next. The lance served as each warlord's staff of office, symbolizing their strength of arm and prowess in battle, for only the strongest and most ruthless of the clansmen could lay claim to such a weapon. Its pointed tip was razor sharp and capable of delivering a powerful electric shock that was capable of stunning a wookiee. It was also fitted with a vibro-edged head that could be used for slashing and cutting.
While in the possession of the warlord's of Clan Murtog on Pzob, the vibro-lance was decorated with the tusks of defeated war boars tied to its haft with strips of hide. These fetishes caused the Pale Spear to rattle while in use and served to intimidate the enemies of whoever wielded it. Later when the weapon came into the hands of Bey Kahn, it was stripped of these tribal decorations and the shaft was bound tightly in leather, providing a better grip.
