Marcie (Lightsaber) in Star Wars Canon
“Marcie” is comprised of a cylindrical metal hilt. The hilt, which is mostly metallic silver in color, is a somewhat basic design with a mostly uniform diameter throughout. The Jedi lightsaber is equipped with a kyber crystal and emits a blue blade.
Jedi Rissa Mano serves the Jedi Order during the Clone Wars. Jedi Master Mace Windu selects Mano for a Jedi task force to the jungle planet Hissrich to discover the reason for the Separatist presence on the planet. Although she is recently promoted to the rank of Jedi Knight, Windu selects her for the mission due to her exceptional piloting and engineering skills. Jedi Master Kit Fisto and Prosset Dibs accompany Windu and Mano on the mission as well.
During the mission, the Jedi wield their lightsabers against many droids. Rissa Mano and Mace Windu become separated from the other Jedi and discover droids extracting minerals from the planet. Mano lends her lightsaber to Mace Windu. He uses the lightsaber along with his own to strike down a droid. When he returns the lightsaber to Mano, she remarks to the lightsaber, “Hey Marcie. Did you have fun eviscerating droids with Master Windu?”
Meanwhile, Fisto and Dibs fight droids and protect the inhabitants. When the group is reunited, Dibs expresses his disagreement with the actions of the Jedi Council and duels with Windu (Due to his insubordination treason, Dibs is later reassigned to the Jedi Archives). Windu prevails and the rest of the Jedi complete separate missions before the task force returns to Coruscant.
