Uthar Wynn Double-Bladed Lightsaber in Star Wars Legends
Unthar Wynn constructs the double-bladed lightsaber during his tenure as a Sith apprentice. The lightsaber is comprised of a long, cylindrical hilt. The Sith lightsaber, which is equipped with red kyber crystal, emits red blades.
As a Sith apprentice, Wynn studies under Jorak Uln, the Sith Master and Korriban Sith Academy Headmaster. Uthar Wynn eventually gains enough power to drive the headmaster away from the academy into the Valley of the Dark Lords. Wynn takes control of the Sith Academy and assumes the position of Headmaster. He takes on the female Twi’lek Yuthura Ban as his Sith apprentice. Near the end of the Jedi Civil War, Ban beings plotting to usurp Wynn from power.
In the last year of the Jedi Civil War, Revan, now a Jedi, comes to Korriban searching for a Star Map leading to the ancient space station Star Forge. Revan and his allies are accepted as students at the Sith Academy and are brought before Headmaster Wynn. He assigns Yuthura Ban to instruct the students.
During his time at the Sith Academy, Revan gains prestige over fellow students while avoiding turning to the dark side. Wynn determine that Revan is worthy of becoming a Sith. As a final task, Wynn assigns Revan to locate and retrieve the Star Map along with a ceremonial Sith lightsaber. When Revan completes the assignment, Wynn tells Revan that he must kill someone familiar to him. He commands Revan to strike down Ban (Wynn had discovered Ban’s ambitions for taking over the academy). Revan refuses to strike down Ban, taking her side. Furious, Wynn tries to attack the pair, but discovers he has been poisoned. Wynn is greatly weakened by the poison. Ban and Reven kill the Sith Academy Headmaster.
