Lar Le’Ung Lightsaber in Star Wars Canon
The Lar Le’Ung lightsaber is comprised of a metal hilt with a flared emitter and a spherical, knob-style pommel. The lightsaber emits an orange blade.
In 25 ABY, during the early stages of the Yuuzhan Vong war, Jedi Master Lar Le’Ung is stationed at the Jedi Praxeum on the moon Yavin 4. As an instructor at the academy, Le’Ung is one of the Jedi Masters who oversees the Jedi training.
After the Yuuzhan Vong invade the planet Rychel, Lar Le’Ung goes on a mission with Luke Skywalker and new Jedi recruit Finn Galfridian to aid evacuation efforts. Le’Ung commands the Republic troopers participating with the mission. Le’Ung, Galfridian, and the Republic troops create a diversion during the battle to enable Skywalker to rescue and evacuate refugees.
Le’Ung’s group fights two large Yuuzhan Vong-deployed creatures. After the powerful creatures destroy several X-Wings Le’Ung realizes the creatures emanate fear. He extends his lightsaber above his head and commands the troops hold the line and tells them to not fear the creatures. Since all Yuuzhan Vong are invisible in the Force, a Yuuzhan Vong warrior easily sneaks up behind Le’Ung and stab the Jedi Master in back with an amphistaff. Le’Ung collapses and drops his lightsaber.
Galfridian Wields the Lar Le’Ung Lightsaber
Jedi recruit Galfridian picks up the lightsaber of the fallen Jedi Master. He ignites the blade and rallies the troops. He rescues a small group of refugees and duels a Yuuzhan Vong warrior Tsalok. When a building collapses, the warrior becomes trapped under rubble. Instead of killing the warrior, Galfridian shows mercy and frees the warrior from the debris. He gets on a ship with Luke Skywalker to leave the planet, handing Skywalker the lightsaber. Skywalker later presents the Lar Le’Ung lightsaber to Finn Galfridian, saying that Galfridian had used the lightsaber wisely and compassionately on Rychel.
