Cody MacArthur Fett: Wait a second, "its gathering mass"? Is it some kind of black hole, or weird kind of mass accelerator? If that's the case why is it shown to be firing an energy beam just a few seconds later? Explain, Aoba, explain!
UrsusArctos: "Inner Torus Reactor". Ramiel seems to use a Tokamak Reactor to generate her death beam. This is probably the only time we go behind the scenes to see the (pseudo-)science behind an Angel's destructive power. This made Ramiel my favorite Angel, straight out. ::P
Cody MacArthur Fett: Ah! That makes perfect sense, which is a shame. There goes my theory of Ramiel's beam being super-heated molten steel fired from a gravity acceleration cannon powered by micro black holes, which I favor just because it sounds so much cooler then plasma beam or energy pro...ject...tor . . . Holy smokes! Ramiel's a singing Covenant Assault Carrier, we're all doomed!
