Pix Lightsaber in Star Wars Legends
The Pix lightsaber is comprised of a cylindrical metal hilt. Two pieces of flat metal appear to flare out of the emitter section, forming an angled crossguard. A rope-like piece with tasseled ends loops around the lower part of the hilt. The Jedi lightsaber emits a vibrant, light blue colored blade. When she is not using the lightsaber, Pix secures the hilt in a lightsaber holster on the back of her utility belt.
Pix learns the ways of the Force under the guidance of the Jedi Order. Jedi Master Tyr selects her as his apprentice. Following the outbreak of the Clone Wars, Jedi Padawan Pix serves as a Jedi Commander and her master, Jedi Master Tyr, serves as a Jedi General.
Mission to Thustra
Around 22 BBY, Pix and Tyr go on a mission to the planet Thustra. Accompanied by two additional Jedi and an army of Republic clone troopers, the group’s mission is to deter the Sephi people from seceding from the Republic.
While Pix and Tyr along with Jedi General Tyffix and his Padawan Jedi Commander Cal are strategizing in a battlefield command center, Sephi suicide bombers attack the Republic forces. Tyr uses the Force to lift Pix and Tyr to safety moments before a Sephi starfighter crashes into the command center. Tyr and Tyffix dies in the attack along with many clone troopers. Pix requests reinforcements from the Jedi Council.
Grand Master Yoda arrives on the planet without any additional troops, hoping to peacefully negotiate an end to the hostilities. Yoda takes Cal with him to the negotiations while entrusting Pix and Clone Commander “Clutch” with the command the remaining clone troopers.
Battle of Thustra and Its Aftermath
When Sephi soldiers begin amassing near the location of the Republic forces, Commander Clutch advises Pix to attack first. Awaiting the results of the negotiations and return of Yoda and Cal, Pix declines the suggestion. When Senator Navi deceives Pix into believing that Sephi soldiers killed Yoda and Cal, Pix orders the clone troopers to attack the Sephi. The surprise attack catches the Sephi unawares and the Sephi army suffers heavy casualties.
In the aftermath of the conflict, Pix returns to Coruscant is relieved to find Master Yoda alive and well (Cal sadly perished in the conflict). Senator Navi is accused of crimes against the Republic. After the remaining Republic troops withdraw from Thustra, the planet secedes from the Republic and joins the Confederacy.
