The Blade of Rur in Star Wars Canon

The blade of Rur is an ancient lightsaber with an unorthodox design. In addition to emitting a primary blade, the lightsaber emitter features four short, angled, spike-like side blades. The kyber crystal equipped lightsaber emits blue blades.

Sometime before 1000 BBY, Rur leads Ordu Aspectu, an ancient splinter group of the Jedi Order. Members of the unorthodox group are obsessed with finding a way to achieve immortal life. The obsession creates tension between Ordu Aspectu and the Jedi Order. Ordu Aspectu operates out of a space-station fortress called the Citadel of Rur.

When the orthodox Jedi come to inspect the computer, Eternal Rur seizes control of the Ordu Aspectu’s droids. Eternal Rur starts killing everyone in the Citadel of Rur until Rur is the last survivor. Rur manages to cut off the power to the computer and Eternal Rur loses consciousness. Despite Eternal Rur’s loss of consciousness, the droids follow its last command and kill Rur.

Over a thousand years later, the archaeologist Chelli Aphra and her father Korin Aphra find the Citadel of Rur. Eternal Rur awakens angry and attack the Aphras. Chelli Aphra recovers the blade of Rur and wields the lightsaber against a droid controlled by Eternal Rur.
