Yigan Lam Lightsaber in Star Wars Canon
During the Clone Wars Yigan Lam along her master, Hallan Krintu, take part in a delegation to Kamino in order to observe new clone trooper training. During their visit a simulation chamber begins malfunctioning. When a group of clone troopers and droids enter the simulated battle within the chamber, a real explosion goes off. A series of further malfunctions disrupt the operations of the chamber. The delegation reacts to contain the increasingly volatile and dangerous situation.
A man posing as a Republic trader, Kaj Loomit, ultimately reveals himself as the saboteur of the simulation. Loomit is actually a technician and scavenger aligned with the Confederacy of Independent Systems.
Behind the Scenes
The lightsaber hilt belonging to Yigan Lam shares design similarities with the legendary Skywalker lightsaber, including details like bunny ears near the emitter area and a series of black vertical grips encircling the lower section of the hilt. The Yigan Lam lightsaber emits a green blade, however, while the Skywalker lightsaber emits a blue blade.
The character Yigan Lam first appears in Begun, The Clone Wars Have! (2019), an adventure for the Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars roleplaying game. Lam and her green-bladed lightsaber are first pictured in Rise of the Separatists (2019), a sourcebook for the Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars roleplaying game. In the artwork Yigan Lam’s Padawan braid drapes across the the lightsaber hilt creating a crossguard-like visual effect.
