Arn Peralun Lightsaber in Star Wars Legends
Jedi Padawan Arn Peralun and his Jedi master fight in the Battle of Dakot Seven, defending the people against slavers. During the battle, incoming artillery fire kills Peralun’s master and severely wounds Peralun. The native Dakot Seven people treat Paralun, replacing and augmenting around eighty percent of his body with cybernetics.
Arn Peralun’s recovery lasts for several years, stalling his Jedi training. He becomes one of the oldest Padawans in the Jedi Order. Jedi Knight Tau Idair takes on Peralun as her Padawan. Peralun accompanies Idair on a mission to the mining station Mek-Sha. Based on his previous experience with slaver, Peralun gives into his anger and hunts and kills members of a group of slavers called Brothers. He feels remorseful for giving into his anger.
Peralun and Idair go on a mission to Corellia to protect the Meridian Complex, a shipyard on the surface. They encounter and duel Darth Malgus. Although Malgus is defeated, the Sith Lord uses the Force to hurl a large object at the Jedi. Jedi Knight Kira Carsen and Scourge arrive and save Peralun and Idair.
