Rav Naaran Lightsaber in Star Wars Legends
Rav Naaran is a rising star within the Jedi Order. During the Clone Wars he becomes battle-hardened and harsh with his enemies. He kills many in battle, including fellow Jedi, before he is sent to the the Dawn Temple, a Jedi Temple, on the planet Spintir in the Outer Rim Territories. The temple’s original purpose was to provide a spiritual retreat and rehabilitation for Jedi falling to the dark side of the Force. Many Jedi receive treatment there during the Clone Wars.
Fallen Jedi Rav Naaran becomes imprisoned in stasis within the depth of the Dawn Temple. During the Jedi Purge an Imperial trooper kills the last caretaker of the temple. The Dawn Temple falls into disrepair and Naaran becomes a forgotten surviving patient.
In 0 ABY, Naaran projects his spirit to guide the Dark Jedi Malefax around the temple’s security and defenses. Malefax seeks a holocron within the temple and kidnaps a scholar named Hethan Romund. Four Force-sensitive students of Romund go on a mission to rescue her. The students defeat Malefax. The students eventually confront Rav Naaran, who wishes to take the holocrons from the temple and escape his imprisonment. The students engage the fallen Jedi in a fierce lightsaber duel.
The fate of Rav Naaran depends on the players decisions and the outcome of the Lure of the Lost (2015) adventure in the Star Wars: Force and Destiny roleplaying game.
