The Darth Malgus lightsaber, which contains a synthetic red kyber crystal, is a long, two-toned black and silver colored metal hilt that emits a red blade. The lightsaber’s emitter section is flanked by two intimidating, blade-like pieces with an ‘axe head’ style design.  The Darth Malgus lightsaber is heavily damaged by the time of the Third Galactic War. The hilt’s signature ‘axe blade’ section appears particularly worn down and disfigured.

Malgus is a tall, pale, physically strong human male reliant on a cybernetic respirator. A skilled lightsaber duelist and eager front-line combatant, Darth Malgus defeats many opponents in lightsaber combat through his face-paced acrobatics and punishing brute strength. Malgus fuels his explosive lightsaber combat skills and Force abilities through anger, rage and clarity of focus.

The Darth Malgus lightsaber joined Star Wars Legends in Deceived, a 2009 trailer for the Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR) video game.
