Darth Zash Lightsaber in Star Wars Legends
The Darth Zash lightsaber, a Sith lightsaber, is comprised of a cylindrical, metal hilt. The single-bladed lightsaber emits a red blade.
Darth Zash serves the Sith Empire during the Great Galactic War, a series of battles against the Republic. Secretive and cunning by nature, Zash trains as an acolyte Inquisitor on the Sith homeworld, Korriban. Zash wields the red-bladed lightsaber as an apprentice. She progresses to the rank of Sith Lord and switches weapons, favoring a purple-bladed lightsaber instead. She keeps the red-bladed lightsaber and ultimately passes the weapon down to her apprentice, the individual who would become known as Darth Nox.
Darth Zash develops a nearly insatiable hunger for knowledge, no matter the cost. She generally maintains a calm and even kind demeanor. Zash masters many archaic Sith rituals, using powerful dark side Force abilities to extend her life and maintain the illusion of youth. Overusing the Sith rituals ultimately depletes her body. Her body develops a frail, wrinkled and mummified appearance.
