Kith Kark Lightsaber in Star Wars Legends
Kith Kark is born on the moon Antar 4 prior to the Great Sith War. He spends much of his early life tending to his parents’ livestock. He eventually feels calling to learn the ways of the Force. After rejecting Kark as a student twice, Jedi Master Mroon Jassa accepts Kith Kark as his Jedi Apprentice. Kark trains as a Jedi and ascends to the rank of Jedi Knight.
In 3998 BBY, the Jedi assembly on Ossus selects Kith Kark and fellow Jedi Dace Diath, Shoaneb Culu, Qrrrl Toq, and Nomi Sunrider for a mission to the volatile Oderon to support Jedi Knight Ulic Qel-Droma. The Oderon assignment is Kark’s first ever mission.
On the planet the Jedi battle Naddist rebels and are able to meet up with Qel-Droma. After the Jedi notice a dark side power influencing the battle, they each create a Force shield around themselves. A dark force drains Kark’s shield. Kark is subsequently killed in the battle by a canon.
Around 370 years later, an individual accepts a mission to Oderon to locate and retrieve the Kith Kark lightsaber along with four other historical artifacts. The individual successfully retrieves the Kith Kark lightsaber next to stone ruins. They take the relic to the planet Nar Shadda.
