Jude Rozess Lightsaber in Star Wars Legends
From a young age, Jude Rozess learns the ways of the Force at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. She studies to serve as a Jedi Peacekeeper, a police and security field within the Jedi Guardian branch of the Jedi Order. Rozess eventually constructs her green-bladed lightsaber, completes her apprenticeship, and ascends to the rank of Jedi Knight. She accepts an assignment with the Temple Security Force, the security force for the Jedi Temple and its immediate surroundings on Coruscant.
In 33 BBY, Rozess stands guard at the entrance of the High Council Tower when a group of Yinchorri, under the influence of Darth Sidious, launch a surprise attack on the Temple. A Yinchorri commando ambushes Rozess. The Jedi Knight ignites her lightsaber and fights back, but the commando’s lightsaber-resistant cortosis shield shorts out her lightsaber. The commando tells his comrades to proceed into the Temple while he kills her. As he strangles her she manages to ignite her lightsaber one last time. The battle between Rozess and the commando ends in mutual death.
