Tohno Lightsaber in Star Wars Legends
The Tohno lightsaber is comprised of a standard cylindrical hilt with a flared emitter and an activation box. The lightsaber emits a green-blade.
Tohno is born in 42 BBY and learns the ways of the Force under the guidance of the Jedi Temple. A Jedi Master selects her as a Padawan and she studies engineering and architecture. After the outbreak of the Clone Wars, Tohno and her master accept commissions in the newly formed Grand Army of the Republic. Her master is killed early in the war.
Tohno, along with Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and a group of clone troopers, go on a mission to the Separatist planet Zaadja. Their objective is to destroy the Geonosian droid manufacturing facility on the planet. While Kenobi and Skywalker instigate an attack against the Separatists as a diversion, Tohno infiltrates the facility. Using her knowledge of architecture and engineering, she plans to scope out the most effective places to set explosives.
Before she can set the explosives, however, the Geonosians find her. She fights off several Geonosians with her lightsaber, but quickly becomes overrun with Geonosian guards. Skywalker senses the danger and offers to help her. She declines his offer, refusing to allow Kenobi or Skywalker to put troops at risk to save her. She eventually activates the explosives using her lightsaber. She successfully destroys the droid factory and completes her mission, sacrificing herself in the process.
