The Ronin lightsaber is comprised of a metal hilt with a curved handguard near the emitter. Ronin sheaths the lightsaber in a scabbard that he wears on his left hip. A series of dark diamonds extend down the lightsaber grip section.
Ronin, a former Sith, wanders the Outer Rim Territories along with his astromech droid B5. He serves no Jedi clan and no lord. Ronin finishes drinking tea in the outskirts of a village. The village is in an unidentified planet with forests. After paying the shopkeeper for his tea, Ronin witnesses a Sith Bandit Leader and her followers attack village.
Ronin confronts the human female Bandit Leader, who wields a multi-bladed red lightsaber umbrella. She pulls out a single-bladed red lightsaber from the lightsaber umbrella and approaches him. Ronin and the Bandit Leader engage in a lightsaber duel. He ultimately defeats her and takes her lightsaber. He destroys the hilt and removes the red kyber crystal, giving the piece to the village chief, a young boy.
