- Image Source: @Lin Pal'Ud (Custom character art for Valdus Bral)
- Canon Link: N/A
- Primary Source: N/A
- Manufacturer: Valdus Bral
- Affiliation: Valdus Bral
- Model: N/A
- Modularity: No
- Material: Beskar axe head, phrik shaft, laser gate components, telescoping expansion & contraction components, diatium power cells, control components, ultrasonic vibrations module components
- Classification: Vibro-Axe
- Size: Very Large
- Weight: Heavy
- Diatium power cells fuel two Laser Gate emitters that intersect with each other which drastically increases the damage of the weapon, enables the blade to deflect lightsabers and other energy or physical based weapons, and allow the Axe to cut through non-lightsaber resistant materials with ease.
- Telescoping function: the shaft can be rapidly deployed or contracted with a flick of a switch that is located on the lower part of the handgrip.
- Mandalorian Made: This weapon is mastercrafted by Valdus Bral of high quality Beskar and Phrik. This allows the weapon to be able to withstand extreme damage - even from lightsabers.
- Good Vibrations: This weapon is also a Vibroweapon. The Beskar blades on this weapon are under the effects of a high powered ultrasonic vibration module that make short work of organic targets and allow the axe to even bypass light and medium armor plating.
- Telescopic: This weapon's upper shaft can rapidly contract to the size of a battle-axe or quickly expand to the length of pole-axe.
- Heavy: This weapon is extremely heavy and the weight is focused at the axe head, this means that follow up swings are harder to start than lighter weapons.
- Harsh Drain: The laser gate technology is fueled by a duo of Diatium power cells, however this only allows the activation of the lasers for 2 posts before the cells must recharge for 1 post. This can be ignored but if the laser gate is used for 3 posts, then the diatium power cells cease to function and must be replaced.
This weapon was created by Valdus to combat heavily armored combat units as well as go toe-to-toe with the ever present lightsabers. Utilizing a double Diatium power cell at the bottom of the shaft, this weapon is capable of maintaining a laser gate field over the blade for a respectable amount of time before the power cells need to recharge. The axe, which Valdus has dubbed "Naast" , is also a vibroweapon capable of dealing catastrophic damage to organic targets and cleaving into light and medium armor plating. A straight forward weapon is a reliable weapon, but having a few tricks up your sleeve never hurts. Naast's phrik shaft has an automated telescoping feature that allows the weapon to vary in length. This can be used to catch enemies off guard, to keep a door open, to pull Valdus upward or an enemy closer, as well as take advantage of enemies who do not give him space and only attempt to dodge his swings by narrow margins.
