An Agoniser is an extremely sophisticated Drukhari weapon that drives a victim's sensorium haywire, causing excruciatingly severe pain as nerves burn out from bioelectrical overload. Though Agonisers come in a variety of forms, the most common are toxin-soaked whips or barbed flails.
The larger the creature, the greater the potential for pain-infliction. Agonisers have the ability to harm vehicles as well, potentially disabling the crew or disrupting the vehicle's electronic systems.
