Cyril, Slayer of Empires
It's a trout.
A GIANT SPACE TROUT.
Capable of shooting forth jets of flame to smite the lame, the unworthy, and the insufficently silly. And also, for some reason, donkeys.
Actually, no it isn't. It's a high-tech flamethrower constructed using stock FLEET components and a healthy dose of Board ultratech - a custom weapon for Flax, blond-haired, sandwich-loving, demon-but-on-our-side to the masses. While shooting people isn't really his style, he accepted that sometimes the situation would demand a little hot flaming death.
Legend hath it that while he was brooding on this in the depths of the Funky Horror, a trout flew in through an open window and inspired him. Or at least, Flax's version of the legend hath it - everyone else just says he reused the chassis from one of those Singing Bass ornaments. Whatever the truth, he shoehorned a gas tank, ignition system, various high-tech power systems and a targetter into the "casing", and placed the trigger in a Humorous Spot. The tail forms the stock. Traditionalists will doubtlessly be glad to know that in an emergency Cyril can also be wielded as a two-handed club. The word "Notabishi" has been engraved down the rubberised ventral handgrip in honour of fishbulb42, the weirdness-smith who assisted Flax in Cyril's construction.
Still has that weird tendency to go off when pointed at a donkey, though.
