Second Kai Hudorra (Second Lightsaber) in Star Wars Legends
Following Jedi Master Master Giiett‘s wisdom that a Force-user could make a good living as a gambler, Kai Hudorra eventually becomes the owner the casino The Lucky Twi’lek on the planet Kestavel. Hudorra along with fellow Jedi Jennir eventually sense the treachry of Sahdett and the individual’s true loyalty to Emperor Palpatine.
Hudorra and Jennir lure the fallen Jedi Behygor Sahdett to The Lucky Twi’lek. A lightsaber duel between the two Jedi and the fallen Jedi ensues. Kai Hudorra wields a second, newer Jedi lightsaber constructed by Jennir. During the contentious duel, Hudorra manages to slice Sahdett’s lightsaber in two and slamming the former Jedi against the wall with the Force.
When Sahdett regains consciousness, he admits that he has betrayed the Jedi and joined the Empire. He also says he has contacted Darth Vader and that the Sith Lord will arrive on the planet shortly. Hudorra drugs Jennir’s wine so that the other Jedi will miss the impending confrontation with the Sith Lord Darth Vader.
Confronation with Darth Vader and Death
Hudorra attempts to ambush Darth Vader when he arrives. When Hudorra tries to activate a thermal detonator to destroy them both, Vader uses the Force to stop the button from being presses. Darth Vader throws his red-bladed lightsaber at Hudorra, severing the Jedi Master’s lightsaber hand. When Hudorra refuses to disclose the location of Jennir, Darth Vader executes the Bothan Jedi Master by impaling him through the chest.
