Orla Jareni Lightsaber in Star Wars Canon
The Orla Jareni lightsaber is a hinged double-bladed lightsaber. The lightsaber hilt extends out and locks in place to form a saberstaff. The hilt also fold in half and locks. The lightsaber emits white blades.
During the High Republic era, Orla Jareni studies the ways of the Force under the guidance of the Jedi Order. Jedi Master Laret Soveral selects Jareni as her Padawan learner. The Jedi Order dispatches Soveral and Jareni along with Jedi Master Simmix and his Padawan Cohmac Vitus to the Outer Rim Territories to help resolve the Eiram–E’ronoh crisis.
Years later, Orla Jareni ascends to the rank of Jedi Knight. She declares herself a Wayseeker, a Jedi who operates independent from the Jedi Council. Jareni, along with three other Jedi, journeys to the Starlight Beacon space station in the Outer Rim Territories. When debris from the Great Disaster blocks the hyperspace lanes, their transport ship becomes stranded in deep space.
