Thracia Cho Leem Lightsaber in Star Wars Legends
The Thracia Cho Leem lightsaber is comprised of a standard cylindrical metal hilt with a flared emitter and an activation box.
Thracia Cho Leem learns the ways of the Force under the guidance of the Jedi Order. A contemporary of Mace Windu, she ascends to the rank of Jedi Knight and eventually the rank of Jedi Master. She trains as a Jedi Consular and becomes a renowned Jedi healer and ascends to the rank of Jedi Master.
Leem travels the galaxy and shirks the Jedi Order’s ban on attachments. Rarely returning to Coruscant, she marries several times and gives birth to several children. Despite her unorthodox ways, she maintains loose ties with the Jedi Order and trains several apprentices.
She takes on Vergere as her Padawan until Vergere ascends to the rank of Jedi Knight. In 29 ABY, Vergere disappears after undertaking a mission to the planet Zonama Sekot. Leem becomes concerned about her former Padawan and asks the Jedi Council to send a rescue team. The Council dispatches Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker to the planet. They conclude that beings known as the Far Outsiders (i.e. Yuuzhan Vong) had taken Vergere outside the reach of the Jedi Order. Leem decides to leave the Jedi Order permanently. Although she provides no reason for her departure, she continues to maintain contact with the Jedi Order.
