How do I explain this.
Oh I know!
In story this is all an illusion cast by the ignika on Deckar. In the vision it features many out of character moments, with the barraki fighting eachother. There are also character traits emphasised, such as Mantax stalking Takadox, Carapar being destructive. I think that the object in question is a lightstone torch. It would make sense that this is in fact an elaborate metaphor for my power lust, as I am willing to consume energy.
Or Ghost just thought it would be a good shot for the short.
