Knox Lightsaber in Star Wars Canon
Jedi Padawan Knox serves the Jedi Order and the Republic during the Clone Wars. The Padawan studies the way of the Force under the guidance of Jedi Master Halsey. In 20 BBY, Knox and his master Halsey are dispatched to defend the Temple of Eedit from a Separatist attack. The Jedi Temple is located on the planet Devaron.
Knox and Halsey, with support from a group of Republic clone troopers, wield their lightsabers against attacking battle droids. They initially hold off droid advancement. Then Count Dooku’s new apprentice, Savage Opress, arrives armed with a pike. When the intruder charges toward the temple, Halsey engages Opress in combat. Opress defeats and kills the Jedi Master with his pike. After witnessing the death of his master, Knox runs toward Oppress. Oppress throws the Padawan back against the doors to the temple, killing the Padawan instantly. Upon impact, the Knox lightsaber is knocked from the Padawan’s hands. The lightsaber disengages, bounces on the ground and rolls slightly before settling on the ground.
Behind the Scenes
The Knox lightsaber first appears in “Monster” (2011), an episode of the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The lightsaber is a clan saber with a somewhat generic design. Several additional Clone Wars era lightsabers, like the Ki-Adi-Mundi lightsaber and Aayla Secure lightsaber, share a similar design.
