Match The Lightsaber To The Star Wars CharacterDo you remember the very first time you saw Obi-Wan, Luke, or Darth Vader power up their lightsaber? Remember Mace Windu’s purple saber or even the black Darksaber from the Clone Wars series? Whoa!
In the Star Wars universe, lightsabers were the weapon of choice for Jedi, Sith, and other force-sensitive beings. The ‘light’, or plasma blade, was powered by a rare kyber crystal. Different types of kyber crystals created various blade colors - blue, green, red, purple, black, white, and more. The metal base, or hilt, allowed the user to power the saber on and off with a push of the button. Hilts came in all different shapes and sizes for their Jedi and Sith users.
Lightsabers were weapons of skill, requiring intense focus and training. They were used to slice through virtually anything - metals and alloys, blast doors, enemies, etc. They could also be used to deflect incoming blaster fire. Most Jedi and Sith wielded single blades, however, others preferred dual blades or even multiple lightsabers during combat.
Lightsabers have been used for thousands of years before the formation of the Republic. However, it wasn’t until the Clone Wars that lightsabers grew in use, as Jedi began to take on more offensive roles. After the Great Jedi Purge, lightsabers became quite rare. Many remaining Jedi opted to not wield their lightsabers as it would draw immediate attention. The most well-known lightsaber user during this time was Darth Vader, followed years later by Luke Skywalker and Ben Kenobi.
