Nat Skywalker Lightsaber in Star Wars Legends
The Nat Skywalker lightsaber is comprised of a cylindrical metal hilt. The single-bladed lightsaber features a flared emitter and a narrow neck section. The lightsaber, which is equipped with a yellow kyber crystal, emits a yellow blade.
Nat Skywalker is born into the Skywalker family. Nat Skywalker’s younger brother, Kol Skywalker, serves on the New Jedi Order’s Jedi Council. Tending to Jedi affairs on Coruscant, Kol Skywalker sends his son Cade Skywalker to train at the Jedi Praxeum on the planet Ossus. Nat Skywalker raises his nephew Cade on Ossus. Nat Skywalker marries a Kiffar named Droo and becomes an adoptive father to her two children.
Building the Hidden Jedi Temple
During the beginning of the Sith-Imperial War in 127 ABY, the Jedi Council orders the creation of a Hidden Jedi Temple. Nat Skywalker selects the planet Taivas and establishes the Hidden Temple. He constructs the Hidden Temple in a pool of water using several salvaged antique starships. Once established, the Hidden Temple serve as an emergency safe haven for Jedi in the event of a extermination order similar to Order 66 during the Clone Wars.
Leaving the New Jedi Order
At some point during the Sith-Imperial War, Nat Skywalker leaves the New Jedi Order for reasons only know to his wife. He takes on the name Bantha Rawk in order to avoid undue attention from using the Skywalker name. His family adopts the Rawk surname as well. In 130 ABY, Sith-Imperial forces attack the Jedi Praxeum on Ossus, killing Nat’s brother Kol Skywalker and the other Jedi on the planet. The pirate Rav saves Cade Skywalker from the Massacre on Ossus. The remaining Jedi in the New Jedi Order scatter throughout the galaxy.
Reuniting with Cade Skywalker
Later, Rawk and his nephew Cade Skywalker reunite. Rawk supplies Cade, who is now a bounty hunter, with weapons. Some time later, Cade Skywalker and his crew help Rawk and his family fight off a group of mercenaries. Following the skirmish, Cade Skywalker mentions that his is unable to locate the scattered Jedi. Rawk tells Cade about the Hidden Temple. Rawk, Cade and several others seek out the Hidden Temple. Rawk’s family relocates.
Rejoining the Jedi and Death
Sometime after Darth Krayt’s rise to power, Rawk returns to the Jedi Temple on Taivas and reactivates as a Jedi. He believes that all those able to fight in the war should fight in the war. During a Sith and Imperial assault on the Hidden Temple, a crashing Sith ship tumbles toward Rawk and Cade Skywalker. Rawk pushes his nephew out of harm’s way, saving Cade’s life. The falling ship crashes into Rawk, killing him immediately.
