The Darth Talon lightsaber is an organic style single-hilt lightsaber with a red blade in Star Wars Legends. Darth Talon, a female Lethan Twi’lik from the planet Korriban, is a third generation Sith Lord during the Legacy era. An extremely loyal and unquestioningly obedient member of the One Sith cult, Talon serves as Hand to Darth Krayt, the founder and leader of One Sith. She trains Cade Skywalker as her apprentice as well.
Like most members of One Sith, Darth Talon’s Sith lightsaber is made from an organic material like yorik coral. A series of asymmetrical, intertwining, notched grooves wrap around the hilt. The emitter section, the widest point of the hilt, flares out into a crown of short claws.
Darth Talon, likely a user of Form IV (Atarui) of lightsaber combat, is fast, aggressive, and acrobatic during lightsaber battles, often fighting one-handed with skillful leaps and jumps. She incorporates various Force abilities, including Force lightning, into her lightsaber combat as well.
