Indigo Lightsabers in Star Wars Legends
Despite the expansive variety of playable lightsaber blade colors in the video game Star Wars: The Old Republic, a dedicated indigo lightsaber is NOT a color option in the Massive Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Game (MMRPG). The game does feature a Blue-Cyan-Indigo Color Crystal, however, which incorporates indigo in the blade color.
Behind the Scenes
The indigo lightsaber first appears in Star Wars Canon in the video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (2019). Indigo is one of the 8 playable blade colors in the game. The blade color appears again in the sequel video game Star Wars Jedi: Survivor (2023).
Indigo is one of the traditional seven colors of the rainbow, situated between blue and violet. The color is named after a plant called indigo, which was historically used for naturally dyeing cloth. The earliest evidence of human use of indigo dates back to 4000 BCE in what is modern day Peru. Original blue jeans also utilized indigo dye to give the apparel its “blue” color.
Indigo Lightsaber Color Theory
An indigo lightsaber blade may connote calm, wisdom, spirituality and intuition. The blade color combines blue, an extremely traditional and common lightsaber color, with purple, a more unorthodox color. Wielding an indigo blade may signal that individual embodies a blend of a traditional and unorthodox approach.
