Kauka ("Donut")
These frisbee-sized artifacts are carried in every Turai quad, but are significantly less common amongst the Imperium's citizenry. Kaukas are advanced technology; it is surmised the Masters created them for their slaves. It is unknown how or why the devices work. What is known, however, is their miraculous ability to heal - and the price its users must pay.

While a kauka cannot bring the dead back to life, until that point of no return it can regenerate nearly any wound. Lacerations close up, internal bleeding returns whence it came, cancerous cells heal, and lost limbs grow back.

In the latter case, the new tissue is not the victim's.
