Lord Vindican Lightsaber in Star Wars Legends
The Lord Vindican lightsaber is comprised of a long, metal hilt. A set of two flat, pincer-like claws extend out of each emitter section. The double-bladed Sith lightsaber emits red blades.
Lord Vindican trains in the ways of the dark side of the Force under the tutelage of Darth Ikoral. Vindican ascends to the rank of Sith Lord and takes on his own apprentice, Malgus. During the Republic-Sith War, Vindican and Malgus board the Republic’s space station orbiting the ancestral Sith homeworld Korriban. The two Sith confront Jedi Master Kao Cen Darach and his Padawan Satele Shan in the hangar. Vindican engages in a lightsaber duel with Darach while Malgus duels Shan.
As Vindican duels Darach, he unleashes Force lightning on Shan. Darach Force pushes the Sith Lord across the hangar. Darach tells Shan to leave. She throws her double-bladed lightsaber to Darach before she leaps aboard a freighter to escape. Darach wields two lightsabers against Vindican and Malgus.
Kao Cen Darach holds his own against the two Sith, deflecting many lightsaber strikes. Vindican unleashes Force lightning at the Jedi Master, but Darach absorbs the attack with his lightsaber blades. Darach slashes a lightsaber blade across Vindican’s face and eventually impales Vindican in the stomach. After the Sith Lord collapses to ground, Malgus uses the Force to summon the double-bladed Vindican lightsaber to him.
Malgus wields his own single-bladed lightsaber along with the double-bladed Vindican lightsaber against the Jedi. He overpowers the Jedi Master and cuts him down. Malgus discovers that his master is still alive. The Sith apprentice blames Vindican for escaped freighter, which will be able to alert the Republic of the Sith’s return to Korriban. Malgus ignites his lightsaber and cuts down Lord Vindican in one swift strike.
