Noting the lack of honest to goodness spy gadgets in the First Order Security Bureau, the eggheads in the First Order Corps of Imperial Engineers (FOCIE) set about with an ambitious agenda to kit out Security Bureau agents with nifty new tech, both offensive, defensive, and utilitarian. Part of the lineup was a stealth weapon, designed to be carried in social stealth situations and to skirt security situations. It is designed to be imperceptible in non-invasive frisks and to not show up in metal detectors and other similar scans. It is not a terribly powerful weapon; its stopping power is just average and its range is limited. The trade-off is that the weapon is all but silent when fired, making it both a powerful precision tool (thanks to its ability to smuggle it through some security) and a lifeline for agents caught out (thanks to its small form factor allowing it to be concealed and deployed as a surprise).
