Eeth Koth Lightsaber Construction and History
The cylindrical Eeth Koth lightsaber hilt is 26.6 inches long and is comprised of a metal alloy. The lightsaber is equipped with a kyber crystal and emits a green blade.
Jedi Master and Jedi Council member Eeth Koth wields the lightsaber during the waning years of the Republic. During the Clone Wars, Koth uses the lightsaber to duel the formidable General Grievious. Grievious captures Koth and seizes his lightsaber. Adi Gallia, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker rescue Eeth Koth and the Jedi Master manages to recover his confiscated lightsaber.
Eeth Koth is removed from the Jedi Council and subsequently leaves the Jedi Order. He is replaced on the Jedi Council by Jedi Master Agen Kolar. Koth goes into exile, becomes a priest in the Church of the Ganthic Enlightenment, and gets married and has a child with a woman named Mira.
Darth Vader and three Inquisitors locate Eeth Koth and his family. A duel ensues between Eeth Koth and Darth Vader. Vader ultimately impales Koth in the back. The Jedi Master’s lightsaber tumbles out of his hand as he dies. Vader takes Koth’s child, abducting the infant as a possible candidate for Project Harvester, an Imperial operation to capture young Force-sensitive individuals and turn them into Imperial agents.
