Bultar Swan lightsaber in Star Wars Legends
Bultar Swan is extremely skilled in open hand martial arts and lightsaber defense techniques, exhibiting a fluid and acrobatic style. She studies lightsaber defense under Jedi Master Plo Koon. Prior to the Clone Wars, Bultar Swan maintains a respected record of never taking a life in combat.
Swan survives Order 66 and initial stages of the Great Jedi Purge. Jedi Master Shadday Potkin invites Swan and six other surviving Jedi to meet on the planet Kessel. Unbeknownst to the other Jedi, Shadday had lured Darth Vader to the meeting as well in the hopes that a group of eight Jedi could defeat the Sith Lord.
Vader confronts the group of Jedi. During the ensuing battle, he kills several Jedi. Bultar Swan and Jedi Master Tsui Choi disable Vader and the Sith Lord surrenders. Jedi Master Koffi Arana commands Swan to kill Vader. Swan refuses the order, unwilling to strike down an unarmed opponent. Arana takes Swan’s lightsaber, stabs and kills her with the blade, and wields the lightsaber against Darth Vader. Vader quickly kills Arana and wields the Bultar Swan lightsaber against the three surviving Jedi. Vader, along with the group of stormtrooper reinforcements, strikes down the final three Jedi from the group.
