The Thexder series is a type of handgun, designed for long life, reliability, and ease of maintenance. Although now considered obsolete for combat - without substantial modifications, Thexder-series weapons lack the power to breach modern kinetic barriers - they retain a niche popularity with collectors, and are still often used as training and target-shooting pistols.

Out-of-character notes
